In 2016, luxury apartments accounted for 30% and in the previous year was 38%.

Duong Thuy Dung, Research Director of CBRE Vietnam, said that in the year 2017, 43,861 units are expected to be sold to the market. Among them, 1,627 luxury apartments from 6 projects in the center of Ho Chi Minh City, are expected to have new highlights. The high-end segment will still account for a large proportion of the more than 13,000 units sold.
In particular, the market in 2017 is expected to focus more on the market share of affordable housing and nearly 40% of all new apartments offered for sale in the popular segment. Large developers will also implement their project adjustment strategy to match the new market situation.
In the period from now to 2019, the absorption rate of the affordable housing segment is expected to reach over 60%. For the high-end segment, a large number of new apartments offered and the tightened capital mobilization laws may be factors that will reduce the selling momentum. The luxury segment still maintains about 50% absorption.
In terms of price, the luxury segment is expected to grow by about 7% in 2017 with many specially designed projects in the suburban area. In addition, a residential segment is expected to increase prices by about 3%.
The premium segment is forecast to increase by about 4%. In the next three years, housing prices in HCM City are forecast to increase by nearly 10% thanks to the expansion of transport infrastructure and closed construction.
CBRE Vietnam said that in the segment of townhouses, retail space, offices for lease continued to grow well due to limited supply and high demand.
