Foreign Residents In Chiyoda Ward Are Increasing

When And How Should I Be Searching For Housing?
Your precious children attend school nearly every day. For those hoping to reside within walking distance of school, we recommend that you proactively begin your search a few months before the school year begins. February through April is the peak relocation season in Japan, so if you wait until this period it can be quite common to find that in the short time you were considering a property it has already been quickly claimed by someone else.
Regarding the search process, if time allows, we recommend that you walk around the surrounding neighborhood and take note of any buildings you are interested in. Afterwards, pay a visit to a local real estate office and you should be able to inquire about availability.
For those who are quite busy or currently located far away, we suggest that you find and contact real estate agencies online with your budget and desired layout criteria, and have them send you a selection of properties. It may also be ideal to do some property searching online yourself in conjunction as well.
If at all possible, we highly recommend that you arrange to go and view the properties in person. As one of the primary business districts in Tokyo, this area transitions from bustling on weekdays into a quiet, calm neighborhood on weekends, which can be quite a striking contrast at first. By experiencing and gradually familiarizing yourself with both environments, we believe that you will be able to transition into the area more smoothly.
At FREA Co., Ltd., we will do our very best to search together with you for housing properties that fulfill your desired conditions. Even after contract-signing takes place, we will remain on hand and continue to provide English-language support for your new life.
