6 Possible Options Japan Homes Offer

To answer to the client queries Japan Homes has provided 6 different options with pros and cons as listed below.
1. Renovate the house and sell
  • There is leaking so we don’t recommend this from our experiences.
 
2. Sell the property as is
  • It costs almost nothing.
  • Time is about 3 to 4 months to sell.
  • Revenue is medium.
 
3. Demolish the existing house and sell the land
  • The cost will be about $20,000 for demolition.
  • Total time is about 6 months for the breakdown and sales period.
  • Revenues may be small.
Note
 
If it is only to buy a land, banks are hard to lend money because it is unknown how much the purchaser costs 
money and time to build a new house, so sometimes sellers can not sell at the amount expected by the seller.

4. Demolish the existing house and build a new building then sell it
  • You will need to have all the expenses; it can possibly cost around $600,000.
  • Time is 12 months – 18 months including Council Consent applications, construction and sales.
  • Revenue is small to large.
Note
  • This option requires the most amount of time and money.
  • It can maximize revenue if all goes well.
  • Considering from the investment perspective, the risk of interest and time is also high.
  • When the market is stagnating one year later.
  • There is still a possibility that you cannot expect much profit.

 

5. Sell the land with new home design
  • The cost is about $50,000 to the design and consultation stage.
  • Time is about 6 months (So, we will pass the contract to other companies so sales are completed.)
  • Revenue and investment costs are low, so we can expect to maximize profit.
Note
  • Appeal a suitable design for the site.
  • Deliver the best design with the scenery that fits in the environment.
  • Proposing a floor plan with family structure with the most purchasing layer,
  • Japan Homes have Master Builder ‘s 10 – year warranty
  • The Japanese creates a fine home.
  • There is a free check every year after completion.
  • Raise the value of the house by appealing these.
  • On the investment perspective, it is the shortest time, since it is a small investment, it is most balanced investment option.

6. Sell the land with new home design + Subdivision (2 lots)
  • The cost is about $200,000 – 250,000.
  • Time may take 12-15 months.
  • Revenue is medium to large.

 

In our point of view the option number 5 seems to be the best option.

What do you think?

ジャパンホームズが提案する6つの選択支

以上の質問に答えるために、Japan Homesは以下のような6つのオプションを、長所と短所をまじえて返答致しました。

1、改装してこの物件を売る
雨漏りが存在しているので、経験上やめたほうがいい

2、そのまま売る
費用ほぼかからない、
時間は販売期間のみの3-4か月程度
収益は中

3、既存家屋を壊して土地だけ売る
コストは壊す費用などで2万ドル程度
時間は壊す時間と販売期間で6か月程度
収益は小の可能性あり

記)土地だけの購入だと、銀行がお金をだしづらかったり、
購入者が家の建設にお金と時間がいくらかかるのか不明なので、
売り手が想定した金額で売れないときもあり。

4、既存家屋を壊して新築を自分で建てて売る
費用はすべて自分持ちなので、60万ドルくらいかかる可能性
時間は申請、工事、販売を含めて12か月-18か月
収益 小ー大

記)お金も時間ももっともかかる方法。
すべてうまくいけば収益も最大化を望める。
投資目線で考えると、金利や時間のリスクも高く、
1年後のマーケットが停滞しているときは、
それほど収益を望めない可能性あり。

 

5、売り建て(土地+新築設計プラン)
費用は設計、コンサル段階までの5万ドルくらい
時間は6か月程度(それで、契約を他社に渡すので、販売は完了)
収益、投資費用が少なく、利益最大化を望める。

その場所に適した設計をアピール。
デザインや景色の最大化や借景を意識したり、
もっとも購買層が多い家族構成での間取りを提案、
MBの10年保証、日本人がきめ細かく家を創り、
完成後は毎年無料点検あり。
ということをアピールすることで家の価値を上げる。
投資目線では、短時間、少額投資なのでもっともバランスがとれている。

6、売り建て+分割

費用は20-25万ドルくらい
時間は12-15か月かかる可能性あり
5+分割の時間がかかる。

収益は中ー大

 

弊社としては、今回のような案件では、5番の売り立てのプランが最適だと考えます。

いかがでしょうか?

I love architecture and design so much that I have been to so many buildings and places around the world such as Sydney Opera House in Sydney, CCTV building in Beijing, Empire State Building in New York, Royal Palace in Bangkok, Houryu-Ji in Nara, etc. However, the residential building attracts me the most. For nearly 10 years I have visited heaps of local and historical homes around New Zealand which I feel the builders’ great workmanship as well as occupants’ life.

From this experience my aim is to design and provide the comfortable and affordable houses with the spirit of Japanese workmanship that people enjoy and improve their quality of life.

In this blog I write my everyday experience of work to show what is a designer’s work and how it goes at Japan Homes.

Any comments or questions are very welcome.
