Many of like this houses are empty in my town.
Nobody want live in like this big old house today.

Average price 150000-180000 US$.
If you rent like this house . It will be 300-400 US$ per month in my town.

Almost half price of 150m2 New house.

Nobody want big old house. It takes cost for maintenance . Tax is also one reason.

13% of houses are empty in Japan.
In 30years, 40% of houses will be vacant.

One of the big problem we face.
