Housing & Services Business
LIXIL Group's Housing & Services Business offers comprehensive housing and lifestyle support to customers through all stages of their lives. The business is comprised of various operating companies, providing dedicated services to enhance the value of people's lives including home performance assessments, maintenance management, home inspections, real estate transactions and housing-related financial services.
From birth to leaving home, getting married, having children and the children themselves growing up and leaving home, various stages exist in one's lifecycle. We naturally need to adjust the way we live at different stages. Our mission is to respond to these adjustments and to provide comprehensive services throughout the lives of our customers.
With the changing demographics and greying society, the Japanese housing market is shifting its focus from volume to quality. This shift is already visible with the increase in renovation demand. At LIXIL Housing & Services Business, we expect to see increased demand for housing stock management related services as well as other services that enhance quality of life, and are launching new services focusing on these demands. For example, through LIXIL Living Solutions, Japan Home Shield, and LIXIL Realty, we have recently launched a new service to accurately assess the condition and determine the real value of homes for those considering renovation or the sale or purchase of existing homes. In the living-support services space, LIXIL Living Solutions has recently launched a new communications site "HOMEPAD" and started a comprehensive consultation service known as "Home Supporter" for a broad range of matters relating to living.
For LIXIL to become the Living Technology company of choice in Japan, we need to focus on both products and services. We are committed to building on our know-how and technology to ensure the safety and security of homes and enhancing our services to increase the value we provide to our customers.
