"I highly recommend Michael's newsletter and services.”

"I hired Michael to research very specific types of properties for me, all located within 2 hours of Tokyo. I was very impressed with the list he came back with! There are some fantastic properties at great prices for me to consider. I never would have found them on my own - never. I highly recommend Michael's newsletter and services.”

"Above and beyond our expectations. 100% recommended"

"My husband and I have been day dreaming of a house in Japan and we began house hunting a few months ago. To be honest, it's time consuming. There's so many real estate sites these days! We feel lucky to have come across Cheap Houses Japan's newsletter because it handpicks houses that absolutely make sense to what we're looking for. We've been subscribed for 3 months now and we really see the value of it. We even hired Michael as a consultant to get more information about the buying process and he went above and beyond our expectations. 100% recommended."

Cheap Houses Japan is NOT a real estate agency, and I do NOT receive any commission for including a specific listing. That means that I am only working for you. My goal is simple: to bring you the listings I think you’ll like. No ulterior motives. For more info, see my FAQ
