Buy 1LDK Apartment in Yokohama

1LDK apartments typically range from 28 m² of space to as much as 60 m² of space on the more expensive end. On average, a 1LDK unit in Tokyo and Yokohama is about 30 m² to 40 m², has a separate toilet and bath, kitchen with a 2-burner or 3-burner stovetop, a separate bedroom with a larger closet, a larger balcony, and a dressing room/washroom with a vanity and space for a washing machine. Older 1LDK units may tatami mats in the bedroom, but newer properties tend to have flooring instead.

A typical tenant is a working professional or a working couple with no children. As more adults in Japan marry later in years or remain single longer, 1LDK units are a bit more popular and can be more expensive even if they have less floor space than a 1DK. This type of unit is also more common in a city center where there is greater demand for easy access to a major train station.

Buyers of this type of property may buy this property as a permanent home until they decide to upgrade to a larger space, find themselves being transferred far away for work, or get married and want more space for a family. The owner may want to rent the property out for generating passive income, but more often than not, will sell the property to raise additional funds to purchase a larger condo close to work or to build a house in the suburbs.

Buying a condo is super easy for non-resident foreigners with cash and even easier if you have residency. This condo is a bit expensive, but relatively new and close to Kawasaki Station allowing you easy access to both central Tokyo and Yokohama. This unit would be a good purchase if you are a single professional looking for a low-cost alternative to paying rent. When you are ready to upgrade, you can either sell the property or switch to an investment approach and rent the unit out to new tenants.
