Project Description

We are a Japanese consulting firm currently working for a client in Japan and wish

to undertake a brief research (Feasibility study) to identify the status of rental real estate industry.

Our focus is both on houses (family houses, townhomes, duplexes, suites, apartments, and etc.)

and offices for lease in the USA.

What we need from researchers are as follows.

1. Executive summary of rental real estate industry in the USA.

2. Show the total market size of rental real estate industry and each market size of houses / offices and

growth (volume and value) in the last 3 years in the USA.

3. Explain the outline of real estate agency business especially focusing on rental properties.

- If the real estate agency business is divided into “the lessor’s agency” and “the tenant’s agency”,

please kindly explain the details.

- If there is a case that the real estate agencies are not involved in lease agreement,

please kindly state the percentage of total lease agreement.

4. Identify the major 5 realtors for rental properties between tenants and rental properties in the USA (Both houses and offices).

If not, please kindly let us know.

5. Explain about the rate of realtor’s fee (broker’s commission) and its governing law.

- If different standard and various law in each one of the states exist, please kindly explain them state by state.

- If there are particular business practices for this, please kindly explain them as well.

※For your information, in Japan, Building Lots and Buildings Transaction Business Act provides

the payment of realtor's fee (broker’s commission) equivalent to a month's rent.

But, the business practices are not always same as above.

6. List the windows to use in order to decide the rental properties (Both houses and offices)

such as newspaper, magazines, internet, real-estate office, government office and etc.) , and state the use rate of each window.

7. State the situation of internet utilization and the internet advertisement in rental properties industry.
