■ Background
In recent years, the number of vacant houses has increased and has become a social issue. According to the 2018 Housing and Land Statistical Survey released by the Statistics Bureau of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, there are approximately 8.49 million vacant houses nationwide, with the vacant house rate reaching a record high of 13.6%. One house is predicted to be vacant. The number of vacant houses in Osaka Prefecture is 709,400, and the ratio of vacant houses to the total number of houses is 15.2% (the national average is 13.6%), both the number of vacant houses and the vacant house rate are the highest ever (*). 1).
In Sakai City, it was found that there were approximately 6,800 vacant houses (limited to detached houses and tenement houses) in the 2019 survey of vacant houses in Sakai City. Revised in June 2022), we are promoting comprehensive and effective vacant house measures through collaboration by actively utilizing the know-how of experts and private businesses.
In the field of demolition work, we operate a comprehensive estimate web service “Crasone” that matches approximately 1,500 specialized construction companies nationwide with owners. We have more than 10,000 construction contracts (*2). From September 2020, we will start offering the “Crasone Peace of Mind Guarantee Pack” (* 3) free of charge, which combines “start money guarantee”, “completion
guarantee”, and “third party liability insurance” for clients and construction companies. We are strengthening our efforts to eliminate the anxiety associated with the demolition of vacant houses and to solve the problem of vacant houses, which has become a social issue. This time, Sakai City and our company have concluded an agreement with the aim of contributing to the elimination of vacant houses by collaborating and cooperating to promote the removal of vacant houses and the utilization of vacant houses while utilizing the resources and characteristics of each company. I came to Through these efforts, we will solve the problems of vacant houses, and utilize IT technology and data, such as our “Sumai no Shukatsu Navi”, to improve the quality of the response to residents by local government officials and improve operational efficiency.

Disseminate information on the “Sumai no Shukatsu Navi” to owners of vacant houses in the city.
Active cooperation with city businesses to promote the removal and utilization of vacant houses in the city
■ What is “Sumai no Shukatsu Navi”?
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 “assessed price of the land after demolition” for free. It can solve the lack of information such as “I don’t know how much the demolition cost will be” and support the decision making of the owner who can’t decide to demolish the vacant house because there is no prospect of selling the land after demolition. In the calculation, regional characteristics such as the dismantling market price and market price in the city are reflected. If you want a specific estimate after understanding the approximate cost, you can also receive an introduction to a construction company through the lump sum estimate service “Krasone”.
In addition, the vacant house countermeasure project that utilizes “Sumai no Shukatsu Navi” has been adopted by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism in 2022 as the “Model Project for Countermeasures against Empty Houses Utilizing the Housing Market.”

In recent years, the number of vacant houses has increased due to population decline and changes in social needs. If vacant houses are left unattended, there is concern that the surrounding environment will deteriorate due to decay of buildings and overgrowth of trees, and the problem will become more serious.
In Sakai City, one of the key strategies of the Sakai City Basic Plan 2025, which is a major policy for municipal administration, is “strong and resilient urban infrastructure.” We aim to be a resilient city with high disaster prevention and mitigation capabilities.
To that end, we have formulated the “Sakai City Vacant Home
Countermeasures Plan” and are promoting comprehensive and effective countermeasures against vacant houses by actively utilizing the know-how of experts and private businesses.
 The collaboration with Crasone Co., Ltd. is in line with the city’s direction of using ICT to improve the quality of citizens’ lives and solve local issues. By further promoting the removal and utilization of vacant houses, we will focus on realizing a city where citizens can live with peace of mind.

We are very pleased to conclude a partnership agreement with Sakai City, which is actively collaborating with private businesses to promote vacant house measures, and to be able to support community development in the area of ​​vacant house demolition. Utilizing our knowledge and experience in demolition and IT technology, we will solve the worries of vacant house owners and support the promotion of appropriate removal of vacant houses in Sakai City to ensure the safety and security of Sakai City.
