Credit Saison Co., Ltd., a well-established financial services company, recently introduced a novel offering,
the “Saison Real Estate Free Loan.”
Targeted at affluent individuals, property owners, and sole proprietors,
this service addresses the financial needs of these individuals by allowing them
to freely utilize funds within a set limit, using their real estate holdings as collateral.
The service is unique and useful in several ways:
1. Freedom of Fund Usage:
Unlike traditional loans that may restrict the use of funds to specific purposes,
the Saison Real Estate Free Loan allows for a wide range of fund usage.
This freedom extends to consumption-related expenses like remodelling and education,
business purposes like start-ups and working capital, and even investment purposes like real estate.
This flexibility can be particularly attractive to property owners or real estate investors
who may need access to capital for a variety of reasons.
2. Extreme-type Loans:
Another interesting feature is the ability to borrow only what is necessary
within the available credit limit.
This feature offers borrowers a flexible way to manage their borrowing
based on their individual financial needs and conditions,
making it an attractive option for savvy investors and entrepreneurs.
3. Selectable Repayment Methods:
Borrowers also have the choice between two repayment methods:
‘principal deferment repayment,’ where only interest is paid with
a lump sum principal repayment at the end, and ‘equal principal
and interest repayment.’
This flexibility allows borrowers to choose a repayment method
that suits their cash flow situation.
4. Geographic Availability:
The service is currently available in Tokyo, Kanagawa, Chiba, and Saitama prefectures,
which could be an advantage for property owners in these areas.
As a real estate agent based in Tokyo,
you could consider this service as an additional tool for your clients.
Particularly for those who are property owners or are interested in investing in real estate,
the Saison Real Estate Free Loan could provide an effective financial solution.
It could serve as a mechanism for freeing up capital for home improvements,
property investments, or other business ventures.
