1. Planning Funding
When considering to purchase property in Japan, Foreigners' biggest concern is:
The very simple answer is "Yes," purchasing property in Japan is very possible for foreigners of any nationality and from any country even if they do not hold "permanent resident" status. In fact it ts relatively easy for foreigners to purchase property in Japan, PROVIDED THAT they can procure their own financing.
Generally speaking, however, buying property is a large investment and people generally require a loan or mortgage to finance the purchase.
We will tackle financing in a moment. But first, let's start by considering how much you can afford. To determine how much you can reasonably afford for a property in Japan you need to consider the amount you intend to fund using your existing assets and the amount you intend to fund using a loan/mortgage.
When considering how much you can afford, please don't forget that in addition to the price of the property itself you will need to take into account miscellaneous costs such as realtor commissions and registration costs.
