日本民宿投资之我论

一般租赁与民宿比较 最近非常热门的投资话题:中国个人投资者炒爆日本房产民宿投资。虽然民宿收入确实是比一般的租赁高很多,但如果按照一般租赁方式来操作,那请保重。说到底,民宿到底还是服务行业的一种,尤其用airbnb这个平台,如何使客源不断,如何拿到5星评价,除了装修,地点外,还需要有专业的操作及热心的团队。有了这个团队就能容易的满足airbnb所要求的基本房东义务,好比如何处理紧急情况客户安全,除了airbnb是否还有其他销售平台等。你如把民宿当成一家五星级酒店来经营,那就财源滚滚,若无此决心,或不请专业的民宿营运管理公司,劝君还是不要妄入场。 合法性 … Read More

日本民宿合法化 激活华人投资热情

《中文导报》是服务于日本华人及全球华人的中文媒体,是在日华人社会中受推崇的媒体品牌 Source: 中文导报网 – 导报新闻 – 日本民宿合法化 激活华人投资热情 现谈谈法律上的限制 目前的情况是京都民宿需要旅館营业执照。但由于游客太多,旅舍供不应求,条例有可能会放松。游客的大量来袭,导致当地旅社、宾馆、酒店的爆满,以致于出现接待能力不足的问题。如今如airbnb网站的崛起,很多无牌民宿非法营业,为此,日本政府开始推出民宿服务制度改革。去年9月28日,日本政府首次确定将向外国游客推出“民宿”的住宿方式。东京大田区将会率先实行。大田区作为“国家战略特区”,享有放宽政策,允许满足一定条件的空置房屋向外租住。大阪也将在今年4月实行。 而至于京都,由于想对的保守,但当地的政府又无法抵挡旅游所带来的经济好处,相信将会也跟着放松。 如要减低风险,及为长远计划铺路,建议投资独栋建筑做小型旅馆比较可靠,因不会被邻居投诉,再加上比较容易拿到“住宿设施营业许可”。不建议买单间公寓做民宿除非是一整栋,原因是问题太多。问题如: 太多竞争对手,房租价钱不高,回报率将会降低。 价钱不高的话,租客的素质相对的也低,那房子损坏率会高,维修费,邻人的投诉会提高,增加不必要的难度。 … Read More
