Japan's new home-sharing rules are causing Chinese buyers to rethink their investment strategies, reports the South China Morning Post (27 June 2018). Already, Airbnb has cancelled thousands of reservations in Japan, and over 40,000 home-share operators have been asked to delist from its website, according to Chinese online agency for overseas property Juwai.com. “It’s more paperwork and a change, both of which scared people,” said Carrie Law, CEO of Juwai.com. However, Chinese buyer long-term interest in Japan real estate has remained unshaken, thanks to the fact that the 4-5% long-term returns generated from Japanese property are still comparatively higher than rental yields in China, such as the 2.6% yields offered in Hong Kong.
