Market Overview

Residential real estate in Vietnam is expected to grow at CAGR of more than 15 percent in the forecast period.

Vietnam is emerging as a thriving and fast-growing real estate market in Southeast Asia. It is now widely seen as the luxury real estate market hotspot, with a growing economy, coupled with laws that have made it easier for foreigners to purchase the property. In 2018, the Vietnamese economy grew by a robust 7.1%, after expansions of 6.8% in 2017 and 6.2% in 2016. Vietnam is expected to continue its stellar growth in the coming years.

The outlook for the Vietnamese residential real estate market is positive mainly due to continued strong economic growth, rapid urbanization growth and the construction of several mega projects in major cities.

Vietnam has introduced major policy changes and issued new laws, namely Housing Law and Law on Real Estate Business (Introduced in 2015), Law on Sell and Transfer of Real Properties. These laws made it easier for foreigners to buy property as, Foreigners can buy property by simply having a tourist visa, there’s no cap to the number of properties you can buy (previously you could only buy one property). Foreigners are still restricted to buying a maximum of 30% of the units in condominiums and cannot own more than 10% of the properties in a landed project.

In 2019, new villa developments including Athena Fulland by Vimedimex, Sunshine Wonderland by Sunshine Group and Vincity Sportia by Vingroup are expected to enter the market. The total stock of rental apartments in HCMC was over 5,700 units in 2018, up 20% from 2017, the highest growth in five years.

The Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), which came into force in January 2019, is a free trade agreement between Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, New Zealand, Singapore, and Vietnam. The agreement is expected to benefit the residential real estate market in the country.

The CPTPP also enlarges the real estate services in which foreign investors can participate in, including real estate brokerage services, real estate exchange floors, real estate consulting services and real estate management services, with respect to both residential and commercial properties.

This quick surge in individual wealth has made property affordable for many Vietnamese people, contributing to an increase in new developments and an increase in property prices. The residential market focus has now shifted from the high-end to the mid-value segments, as urbanization has created an ongoing demand for housing in large urban centers.

There will be more developments in the residential estate segment for low-income earners in 2020 as most developers have focused on building projects in the medium to prime segment throughout 2018 and 2019.
