Flexible Evaluation of Used Properties

As a rule of thumb in Japan, value of wooden houses becomes zero after 20 years and most people favor newly constructed houses. However, we stopped valuing properties just based on its age because we believe every single Machiya has its own beauty and value. That is why we evaluate used properties by reflecting their historical and cultural values.

Resale Value of Kyo-Machiyas

Among different types of used properties, Kyo-Machiyas often have higher resale value than what people would expect mainly due to two reasons:

・Rarirty - Only about 40,000 Kyo-Machiyas remains in Kyoto city and more and more being torn down each year. Most importantly, these Machiyas that were built before 1950 with the traditional construction method cannot be rebuilt under the current Building Standard Act in Japan so the number can only go down.

・Location - Most Kyo-Machiyas in Kyoto city are accessible via bus or train, and many are within walking distance to world hertiage sites.
