Comfort is better than pride
Doing business in the form of building houses for rent in the districts near Ho Chi Minh City such as Hoc Mon, District 12, District 9, Binh Tan …, even Binh Duong, is popular with many investors.
Nguyen Minh Hoang, now the head of a business office in District 3 (HCMC), has accumulated and borrowed $180,000 to buy a piece of land and build 20 rooms for rent in District 9 (HCMC). In order to increase the safety of its guests and make a difference to its predecessors, Hoang added additional expenses for hiring security guards for the hostel and for cleaning the area.
“Each of my self-contained units has an area of 16 – 25 sqm, security and hygiene, so the average rent per unit is from $130 – $160 / month. Spending, the revenue of the chain of motels is about $3,200 / month”, Hoang said.
This type of business for rent is not only blooming in HCMC but also spreading to other provinces. In particular, the land is concentrated many large industrial parks, land plentiful and cheap price, Binh Duong is a lot of investors from Ho Chi Minh City.
According to Hai, a person with experience in the real estate investment said that investment and real estate, the form of buying land for housing is a way to invest “Comfort is better than pride”, suitable for people with idle cash and do not want to save in the bank because of low-interest rates.
Mr. Hai said, recently there are people selling 150 sqm of land for $32,000 in Binh Duong. After many inquiries and inquiries, he decided to buy a house to serve housing needs for workers working in nearby industrial parks. After about 5 years of business, Hai has recovered enough capital. Although the average room rate in Binh Duong is lower than Ho Chi Minh City, with a large number of workers, the demand for large rooms is always light, the average monthly revenue about $910.
