GPlus Media, publisher of Japan Today and Real Estate Japan, have launched GPlus Media Housing Service, a comprehensive support service for English-speaking foreigners seeking rental housing in Japan.
Foreigners who qualify for registration* are able to access the rental apartment database of Real Estate Japan. When they find an apartment that interests them, they can submit an application request to GPlus Media, which then rents the apartment and subleases it to the user.
This new subleasing system provides multiple benefits to foreign renters. They can view available apartment details and complete the entire rental application process in English, a boon to non-Japanese-speaking foreigners who face difficulty navigating Japan’s complex real estate rental system.
For renters and real estate agencies, the new service opens an untapped but growing market of foreigners seeking high-quality long-term housing in Japan.
Commenting on the new service, Kieron Cashell, Genral Manager of GPlus Media, said, “The service falls neatly in line with our corporate goal of ‘Building International Japan’ and our track record of providing information and services that help foreigners make the most of their time here. I am confident the GPlus Media Housing Service will relieve a good portion of the stress foreigners feel when faced with finding good apartment rentals here.”
