Niigata City yields take top spot across all residential property types
Kenbiya, a Japanese property portal focusing exclusively on advertising residential investment property, released the results of their bi-annual nationwide gross yield ranking report.
The data was compiled on newly listed properties on their website from January to June of 2023.
Niigata City dominated yields, surpassing 10% in all property types.
Niigata City and Sakai City are the only cities that saw yield increases in all categories.
Yields decreased in three cities: Yokohama City, Chiba City, and Kyoto City.
Kenbiya measured the yields of residential income properties in all categories, including strata-title condominiums, wood frame whole buildings, and reinforced concrete whole buildings.
Only properties located in ordinance-designated cities were included in the survey. These cities are those with populations over 500,000 amongst other legal designations.
Tokyo’s 23 wards are exempt from this legal definition.
The following are the results of Kenbiya’s findings:
