1 What is the “Yokohama City version of the end-of-life navigation for homes”? By entering conditions such as the area of the land and building, the nearest station, and the width of the adjacent road from a smartphone, etc., it is possible to easily grasp the approximate amount of the “demolition cost” and the “sale price of the land” after demolition. I can do it.
In calculating the approximate amount, regional characteristics such as the demolition market price and market price in the city are reflected.
The City of Yokohama will provide vacant house owners with the “Yokohama City version of Home Navi” through the city’s website and leaflets.

2 Purpose and effect of conclusion of agreement
In Yokohama-shi, we perform instruction or support of improvement for owner of vacant house where appropriate management is not done. However, if the owner lives far away or is elderly, the burden of estimating the dismantling costs and proceeding with the procedures is heavy, which has been a factor in delaying concrete consideration. This time, we received a proposal from Crasone Co., Ltd., and have been discussing the development of the “Yokohama City Version of Home Navi”. By proceeding with this initiative, owners will be able to easily and free of charge estimate the cost of demolishing vacant houses and the estimated selling price of the land, and it is expected to have the effect of encouraging consideration of demolition of vacant houses, including financial planning. Since then, we have concluded this agreement.
In addition, in “Yokohama DX strategy”, we decide to work on digitization of administration service that citizen is easy to use including consultation and information provision as one of the important policies. In addition, in the “Yokohama City Vacant House Countermeasure Plan” (formulated in February 2019, the second phase), not only owners and the government, but also various entities such as private business operators cooperate to reduce vacant houses that are poorly managed. We will work to resolve it.
