The land price "road price", which is the standard for inheritance tax, was announced on the 1st, the influence of the new corona was gradually eased, and the average of survey points nationwide rose for the first time in two years.

On the other hand, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo and other areas have been declining since last year, and it seems that the slump in office demand due to the spread of remote work is having an impact.

As of January 1, the land price is the value per square meter of land facing major roads nationwide calculated by the National Tax Agency, and is the basis for calculating inheritance tax and gift tax.

The line price of this year was announced on the 1st, and the average of about 317,000 points nationwide surveyed increased by 0.5% compared to last year, surpassing the previous year for the first time in two years since 2020.

The NTA believes that the effects of the new corona are gradually easing.

On average by prefecture, 20 prefectures exceeded last year, with the largest increase being ▽ Hokkaido at 4.0%, followed by ▽ Fukuoka prefecture at 3.6%.

The highest price of the prefectural capital increased in 15 prefectures

▽ Chiba station square main street in Chiba city increased by 5.1%

▽ Sapporo stop line street in Sapporo city increased by 4.8%.

On the other hand, in 16 prefectures including Tokyo and Osaka, it fell from last year, of which Ginza Chuo-dori in Tokyo Ginza 5-chome, which was the highest in Japan for 37 consecutive years, was 42.24 million yen, down 1.1% from last year, 2 It has fallen for the year in a row.

In addition, Daimyo-Koji, Marunouchi 2-chome, Chiyoda-ku, and Sotobori-dori, 1-chome, Yaesu, Chuo-ku, which are known as office districts in Tokyo, both fell 1.3% from last year.

While the National Tax Agency is on a nationwide recovery trend from the Korona-ka, the office district in central Tokyo has a high vacancy rate and rents continue to decline. It seems that it also affects the price.

Expert "The influence of the office continues"

* Senior Researcher Yoshida of the Nisseikiso Research Institute, who is familiar with the real estate market, said, "Although both residential and commercial areas have recovered from the downward trend last year, the impact of the loss of inbound was significant. I have the impression that it is difficult to recover in the area. "

On top of that, regarding the continued decline in Chiyoda Ward and Chuo Ward in Tokyo, where offices of large companies are concentrated, "In response to major changes in working styles such as the spread of remote work accompanying the new corona, we will review and consolidate offices. This is reflected in the increasing number of companies that take the form of this. It seems that this trend will continue to affect land price trends. "

* Above "Kichi" is "Sat"

The background is the shrinking offices of large companies

According to a survey by Sanko Estate, a major office leasing company, the vacancy rate of office buildings in five central wards such as Chiyoda Ward and Chuo Ward was 0.58% in January before Corona, but this May. Has risen to 4.66%, which is more than eight times higher.

We believe that the background of this company is that offices are shrinking and relocating, mainly in large companies, due to the spread of remote work and telecommuting.

Fujitsu, a major electrical equipment manufacturer, plans to reduce the area of ​​offices nationwide by about half compared to before Corona by the end of this fiscal year in response to the establishment of remote work and telecommuting, and it is already in central Tokyo. It means that you have canceled multiple offices.

As a new base, the office built in the skyscraper in front of JR Kawasaki Station last year assumed that the maximum employee attendance rate was 30%, and instead of fixing desks to each employee, the number of seats was reduced before going to work. It means that we have introduced a system that allows you to easily check the congestion status of planned employees and offices on smartphones.

Mitsuya Akamatsu, General Manager of the Fujitsu Workstyle Strategy Office, said, "While aiming for an independent work style for employees, we have decided to reduce or renew the office because the place of work is not limited to the office. I think there is a need to create an office where you can feel the meaning and value of coming to it, rather than just reducing the area. "
