Sale Related Expenses

Details here

  • Brokerage fee

    When a contract is concluded in a sales brokerage, the contingency fee paid to the real estate company is a "brokerage fee."
    For example, if the sale price of the property is 20 million yen, a maximum of 726,000 yen will be paid as a brokerage fee.
    (If the property is purchased by wagaya Japan, no brokerage fee will be charged.)

  • Stamp duty

    This tax is levied on sales contracts when selling real estate. The tax is paid by affixing a stamp corresponding to the sale price. For example, if the sale price is 10 million yen to 50 million yen or less, the stamp tax is 10,000 yen.

  • Cost of mortgage cancellation registration

    This is the cost of a procedure called "mortgage cancellation registration," which removes real estate as collateral when a loan (e.g., mortgage) from a financial institution is paid off.

  • Early mortgage repayment expenses

    This is the fee charged to the financial institution for repaying the remaining loan balance in a lump sum.

  • Acquisition tax / residence tax

    Transfer acquisition tax is the general term for taxes levied on profits from the sale of real estate, specifically "acquisition tax" and "residence tax."

※ Note, if you receive a loan from a financial institution, separate loan commission fees are required.

Satisfied Customer Comments

  • I never thought it could go so smoothly.

    It was my first time selling property in Japan, and I had the impression that it would take a considerable amount of time. However, after I put in a request with the agency, we were able to quickly decide on a buyer, complete the contract paperwork, and close the deal.

    I was even able to sell at higher than my initial price, so I was more than satisfied with their service.

  • Being able to communicate with native English staff was a load off my mind.

    A lot of Japanese real estate agencies don't have multilingual support, and honestly communication can be quite stressful.

    I'm grateful for being able to accurately communicate my requirements in my native language. I could leave the sale of my property in their hands with peace of mind.

  • I was able to complete my sale doing everything online from my own country

    Being difficult to travel to Japan under the current circumstances, it was convenient to utilize Zoom meetings and a special property owner's chat tool to communicate.

    I learned that being able to complete a sale without going to Japan, the country has overcome a major hurdle in real estate investment.
