Second hand condo transaction volume in Greater Tokyo increases for 6 straight months

On December 11th, the Real Estate Information Network Systems (REINS; pronounced “rains”) released updated transaction trends in the Greater Tokyo Area's (GTA) real estate market for November of 2023.

REINS is Japan’s broker-accessed only MLS system.  Japan real estate law doesn’t require agents to list transaction records but encourages reporting for the good of the market.  As such, all data below is voluntarily submitted by agents and should not be interpreted as information derived from a complete transaction history.  That said, the data is valuable to illustrate trends.  The averages below are in no way a pricing guarantee.  Always consult a licensed realtor for your specific real estate needs.

Compared to November 2022, the number of transactions for second hand, strata title condos in the GTA reached 2,900 units—an increase of 3.7% compared Year-on-Year (YoY), marking a sixth consecutive month surpassing the previous year's figures. 

Condo transactions broken down by prefecture:
