Priorities to buy a property after the Eastern Japan Earthquake

Post: Monday August 8, 2011

Foundation strength



The survey conducted by private real estate agents sampling those who are considering purchasing a property demonstrated that the 74.2% found “no change” in the intention of obtaining a property even after the Eastern Japan Earthquake Disaster on March 11th.  The 25.8% of them responded as “there has been a change”.  Out of which, 64.1% indicated, “to monitor the situation for a while” while only 12.8% responded that they “cancelled the plan”.  Four month has passed since the disaster.  While there remain some social and economical uncertainties, the survey proved there is steady and solid interest in purchasing a property.


On the other hand, the majority responded regarding the priorities to buy a property as “the type of ground” as highest of 84.5% followed by “the structure type (the degree of earthquake resistance)” as 77.4%.  The survey result confirmed the strong trend that a large number of people value the safety of the building.
