Are you interested in Akiya ?
We receive an inquiry almost everyday about akiya investment.
They are mainly from western countries such as US, Canada and Australia.
Almost everyone just wants to buy a cheap akiya house for their financial benefit.
But akiya investment is not easy.
The stickiest issue is the renovation cost.
It could be very significant and a way more than the value of the houses.
We don’t search akiya for free.
If you want to buy akiya, you need to hire me on a fee basis
otherwise please contact other agents who can handle akiya on a commission basis.
