New apartment supply drops 6% in July

The supply of brand new apartments released for sale across Greater Tokyo in July dropped 6.2% from last year, resulting in the first year-on-year decline in eight months.

According to the Real Estate Economic Institute, a total of 1,952 new apartments were released for sale. The contract ratio was 68.3%, up 5.9 points from last year. 

Demand continues to outpace supply, with inventory down 16% from July 2020.

The average sale price was 64,980,000 Yen, up 6.1% from last year. The average price per square meter was 984,000 Yen, up 7.8% from last year. 

In Tokyo’s 23 wards a total of 932 new apartments were released for sale. The average sale price was 83,190,000 Yen, up 3.6% from last year. The average price per square meter was 1,289,000 Yen, up 3.5% from last year.
