Buying Real Estate
There are several differences between purchasing real estate in the United States and purchasing real estate in Japan.
In the United States, all properties for sale are registered in the MLS (Multiple Listing System), managed by the real estate association. The listings in the MLS are automatically linked to several major real estate search websites, giving people the ability to search for a listing that matches their requirements from any place around the world.
When purchasing real estate in the United States, there are no fees for the buyer. The agent fee is typically paid by the seller to the listing broker who, in turn, shares part of it with the agent who brings a buyer to the table.
Once a transaction has been finalized between the buyer and the seller, the property goes into escrow, where a third party is hired to handle the property transaction, exchange of money and any related documents.
