In June, the average price of strata-title condominiums remained steady at ¥20.3 million, showing no change from the previous month. However, the gross yield saw a decline of 0.19 percentage points, dropping to 6.74%, indicating possibly softening rents. 

Wood-frame whole buildings experienced a minor price decrease of 0.05%, bringing the average price to ¥78.57 million. In contrast, the gross yield increased slightly by 0.06 percentage points, reaching 8.13%, indicating steady rents in the face of slightly softening prices. 

Reinforced concrete multi-family buildings demonstrated a notable price increase of 5.75%, with the average price rising to ¥189.38 million. Despite this significant price surge, the gross yield decreased by only 0.20 percentage points to 7.55%, indicating rent rises in the shadow of faster rising prices.
