The State of the Akiya
This state of affairs produces unmotivated real estate agents. If you’ve ever heard anyone complaining about how bad service for vacant properties is, now you know why: it’s all work and no reward. But that’s only because no one has bothered challenging that system. Fortunately, we came along to do just that!
Akiya & Inaka has many services that we pride ourselves on, including our custom akiya portfolios. Because there are so many akiya in Japan, we have to develop custom property profiles for each of our clients. We work closely with them to learn their interests and use that to produce a proper profile. After we acquire enough information, we then use it to begin our akiya hunt!
Our clients generally purchase 1 property at a time, though there are exceptions. This means that we frequently have leftover, perfectly viable portfolio listings. We’re pretty big into recycling, so we decided to feature a few of them here!
Current Akiya Listings
More Than Enough to Go Around
The listings featured on this page will change over time. But rest assured, all properties you see are good for those interested in exploring Japan’s countryside. Furthermore, that is the only reason why we list them. We do not have any affiliation with property management organizations that require us to push properties. Thus, everything you see here is here because we simply think they’re cool.
Sometimes we’ll feature fixer-uppers, sometimes turn-key vacation homes, sometimes cabins. A happy bonus to our working so closely with clients is we know a lot of wacky properties. And that’s part of the fun with akiya! There are so many types out there, it’s nearly impossible to get tired of exploring the landscape.
So please take a look, and let us know if you find anything of interest!
