Miss Regina Lim, director of the equity market division of JLL Real Estate Consultancy Company, said that confidence in Vietnam’s economic growth has helped revive investment in real estate from 2013.

In 2015, investors have sold about 24,000 units and in the first half of 2016 is 16,800 units, up nearly 250% over the period 2011-2014.

Price has been adjusted about 30% during the past seven years from mid-2007 to 2014, resulting in high-end apartments priced at $ 2,180 / sqm with 24% below the peak in 2007.
According to Lim’s forecast, in the next three years apartment’s prices will increase by 5-7% per year, affordable apartments are likely to increase by 10% per year. Ms. Lim said that the apartment’s price is still moderate compared to income.
