As competition for acquiring real estate assets intensifies in Japan's major cities, real estate investors face a challenge of identifying attractive investment opportunities in the competitive market. On the other hand, real estate owners should make strategic decisions on whether to continue to hold or dispose of in the current property market, where uncertainty is growing. There will be challenges ahead - how we identify the most appropriate real estate strategy at this time and how we establish the most effective investment scheme from the viewpoints of finance and taxation.
