孤独死、自殺、そして殺人。誰かに看取られる事なく誰かが亡くなった家は「事故物件」とスティグマを貼られ、以降人々から忌避され、時に冷やかしの対象となる。

しかし超高齢化社会、社会との繋がりを持たない人たち、そして年間2万人近くにも登る自殺者。日本を取り巻くこれらの状況を鑑みるともはや事故物件は特段新しいものではない。

ここ東京に「事故物件専門の不動産屋」がいる。社長の大熊昭さんはこれまでに200件ほどの事故物件を取引してきた(取材時)と言う。そんな彼の信念は人々が嫌がる事故物件を"再生"して、世の中に再び流通させる事。

「一番辛いのは遺族の話を聞く時と、物件を内覧した時です。話を聞く時は人の心が絡む。そして物件へ行った時は物が残っている状態なので毎回情が移ってしまう」。そんな心境とは裏腹に先述の社会問題もあり、この不動産屋への依頼は多く、事業としては上手くは行っている。

なぜ彼は一風変わった不動産屋を始めたのか。

そこには過去の経験が関係していた。

​様々な感情や人間模様を目の当たりにする中、今日も事故物件は大熊さんによって再生されていく。

Lonely deaths, suicides, and murders. Homes where someone has died without being noticed by others are labeled as "Jiko Bukken (stigmatized properties)" and are often avoided and sometimes ridiculed by the public.

However, given Japan's super-aged society, the increasing number of people without social connections, and nearly 20,000 suicides per year, these stigmatized properties are no longer a novel phenomenon here in Japan.

In Tokyo, there is a real estate agent who specializes in these stigmatized properties. The president has handled about 200 such properties (as of the interview) and has touched human death as much as the properties. His mission is to restore these properties that people avoid and put them back on the market.

 

"The hardest part is listening to the stories of the bereaved families and when inspecting the properties. Hearing the stories involves human emotions, and when I visit the properties, personal belongings are often still there, making it hard not to get emotionally attached." Despite his feelings, the existence of social issues means that his real estate agency receives many requests and runs successfully.

Why did he start such an unconventional real estate agency? It turns out his past experiences are putting influences on his current life.

Amidst witnessing various emotions and human dramas, he continues to restore stigmatized properties every day.
