According to a director of a real estate company, the real estate business investors have to face many
Thanh Nien – 01 Feb, 2009 difficulties in 2009. Because the land prices promulgated in Ho Chi Minh City have doubled at some
places. This will make the site clearance compensation become more difficult. The money for using land
will also be double. The projects started in 2009 will certainly meet difficulties.
In addition, the real estate enterprises have thought that the compensation for site clearance is a
frequent thorny problem. And the secondary investors have to consider paying the personal income tax
on transferring the properties when they make purchases and sales of properties in this year. While the
purchasing power of the real estate market has dramatically dropped and has seen no sign of recovery
yet, the application of the income tax on transferring real estate has also influenced the investors’
psychology. Therefore, whether the real estate market in 2009 will warm up or continue to cool down has
still substantially depended on tax policies, money for the site clearance compensation, etc although the
bank interest rates are going down.
Many experts have shown that in the context of the global economy now facing a crisis, the multinational

Sai Gon Giai Phong – 05 Feb, 2009 demands for leasing houses, the sizes of apartments, locations and standards of dwelling houses.
Meanwhile, the competition pressure from the office buildings in Hanoi and HCM cities will cause a few
difficulties for this market. In fact, the owners of the office buildings for lease have clearly realized the
competition between the supplies in the future. Therefore, they have to reconsider to provide the rents
that are more suitable for the demands. In addition to the changes in field of offices and apartments, the
field of hotel & tourism is predicted to reduce the rental capacity and the rents, especially in the high-
grade segment, due to many reasons.
Up to this time, only very few projects have been offered for sale in HCMC. The main reason may be
that the investors are planning to wait in front of the market, redesigning the apartments with smaller
sizes, handing over the raw parts with fewer facilities and putting an end to the golden age of the high-
grade apartments. Additionally, the fact of the properties’ value falling down has made the investors
worried and likely to formulate many new policies to attract the supply for the purpose of maintaining the
According to the real estate enterprises’ prediction, there will be many foreign investors withdrawing from
Vietnam or temporarily stop their projects due to the global economic recession in 2009. The real estate
market tends to go down, causing the embarrassment and distraction for all participants. However, the
fact of the developing speed getting slower than anticipated by the real estate market can be a positive
factor because this helps the market not to fall into the excess of supply over demand. However, the
Vietnamese real estate market has still been considered to have full potential and create many good
opportunities. But, it requires not only the effort and experiences of investors, but also the appropriate
policies to develop healthily, steadily and sustainable in order to promote the economic growth and

REAL ESTATE MARKET FORECAST
* Note: Information on market forecast is only updated every 4 periods (after one month) by VietRees – January, 2009
The transaction situation of apartments, townhouses and project ground bases in December has
General tendency of Ho Chi Minh
continued to decrease. According to VietRees’s forecast, the real estate prices can continue to go down
City market with the decrease of approximately 5% per month in December and before Lunar New Year. The
property prices in 2009 are hardly likely to be on the upturn.
The successful transactions at the end of December last year was a little bit higher than the previous
months. However, the transactions have just focused on the segment of low-value townhouses and
apartments. For the group of the high-grade apartments, the rate of the successful transactions was
quite low and inconsiderable. The amount of overseas national currency exchange at the end of this
year has dramatically dropped and not been invested in the real estate field as in the previous years but
it has been used for the production or paying the debts.
The difficulties in the credit situation, the deflation of the economy and the coming maturity of the
contracts mortgaged by the properties have made many properties to be sold out at the prices that are
quite low, even lower than the initial selling prices of the investors. The total outstanding real estate
loans have accounted for nearly 10% of the debts of the whole the banking system, therefore, the banks
demand payment of the debts. And as a result, many investors have to sell their projects and products at
the low prices. Many real estate enterprises have lacked the cash to maintain their business and it is
very hard to borrow more money from banks. On the other hand, currently, some banks have consigned
the mortgaged high-grade properties of the customers for sale and extended the debts so that the
customers have more time to sell their properties in order to pay the loan contracts.
The supplies of the apartments belonging to the medium and low segment have been quite limited;
therefore the market belonging to this segment has also seen no changes as compared to the previous
month. Many high-grade apartments with low prices (mainly belonging to those who sell out their
properties) are hunted for. Meanwhile, the situation of checking the prices of the sellers has appeared on
the market through the self-listed selling prices that are quite low. The sellers have really not wanted to
sell because they will suffer considerable losses if they do so. However, if they offer the high prices
(though suffering little losses), it will be very hard for their properties to be sold at this time.
The high-grade apartments have seen few customers, especially many apartments in Phu My Hung and
many other areas in District 2 and 7. Although the prices have dramatically declined (over 50%), there
have been few buyers. With the movements of the current market, according to VietRees, the prices of
the high-grade apartments will continue to go down after Lunar New Year.
Project ground base market Although the prices of the project ground bases have considerably dropped, they have still been too high
to those who have real housing demands. As a result, the transactions have been are also very low. If
these people have real housing demands, they will choose the apartments or townhouses, not buying
ground bases. Therefore, the transactions have still been very slow.
The prices of many ground base projects in some areas of District 7, Nha Be have declined by 60% but
the successful transactions have still been very scarce. Many investors are worried about the ability of
selling their real estate in the current difficult situation of the economy and the frozen market.
Real estate companies Many previous companies that expanded their real estate business investment have now come back to
their main business fields. Many secondary investors have faced many difficulties such as no cash and
no customers. If this situation continues, the real estate investors who lack the capital will face
bankruptcy risk; have to sell the projects at low prices and withdraw from the market in 2009. In fact,
according to VietRees, there are a lot of middle-ranking and senior managers have withdrawn or
temporarily withdrawn from this field or reciprocally convert their assignments between the real estate
According to VietRees, the real estate investors should switch to the apartment projects with suitable
prices for the medium-income people, instead of aiming at the projects with the high prices like before.
The medium-price projects can be sold quickly; help turn over the capital and take back the capital
quickly. Then, the capital has been continued to be used for reinvesting in serving the customers who
have the real demand because the demand of this group of customers has still drawn little attention and
not been properly exploited yet.
Forecast in 2009 The real estate market with the current movements under the growing impacts of the financial crisis and
global economic recession, the Vietnamese real estate market has seemed to be gloomier. VietRees
has shown that there is a faint possibility that the market will recover in 2009. The market in 2009 will
have more difficulties than in 2008. Many real estate investors and speculators will face the bank
payments while the real estate prices have still not seen any signs of the recovery.
According to VietRees, after Tet holidays, the real estate market will be an attractive playground and
opportunity for the investors with the large capital and long-term investment strategies. The decline of
the market will minimize the speculation. The market will be under the control of buyers, not sellers like
before. For this reason, the potential real estate enterprises should build the long-term development
strategies and actively work in the research and development, especially seriously investing in
researching the market and customers; sustainable developing and avoiding the investment on a large
scale in the current difficult situation.
The coming investment trends The tendency of switching to the investment and development of the low-and-popular-price houses to
attract the majority of customers is getting clearer. Many enterprises are planning to promote their
for Vietnamese real estate
investments in this market segment. It is expected that those who have medium and low incomes have
enterprises many opportunities to approach this supply in the future.
According to VietRees, enterprises should invest in the apartments with the relative areas of 40 – 60 m2,
good structure, relatively good materials and equipments – (not need to be high-level ones), the selling
prices of nearly 10 million/m2. The apartments with the value of around 400 – 600 million VND/flat will be
likely to attract many customers. The customers that should be aimed at include the young families,
students, workers and civil servants in Ho Chi Minh.
In fact, some foreign investors are interested in this market segment. Therefore, the domestic investors
should be quicker because, according to VietRees, Vietnamese enterprises can have more advantages
than other foreign enterprises in this market segment.

CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL MARKET
In 2009, steel cools down, Vietnam Steel Association showed that the steel price on the market has decreased by 500,000 VND/ton
as compared to the end of December, 2008 because the government has approved of 5% decrease of
cement will meet the demand
Value Added Tax as from February, 2009. Thai Nguyen steel price has slided from 11 million VND / ton
Edited by VietRees to 10.6 million VND / ton, the Southern steel is at 11.2 million / ton. On the retail market, the average
price is 1 million VND/ ton more than the factory prices (tax included). This price level is equal to that of
the first half of 2007. The steel market has been stable with the fair consumption. According to experts,
Vietnamese steel market in 2009 will recover well because the bank interest rate is lowered, VAT is 5%
instead of 10% applied to the first month of this year and there is no big change of the steel price due to
the excess of supply over demand in the world. It is estimated that the consumption of the whole industry
this year is 9 million tons with the growth rate of 2 - 5%.
Until the end of 2009, the total capacity of the cement factories in the whole country will reach 60 million
tons (in which the reverter furnace cement reaches 56.8 million tons, vertical shaft kiln cement is about 3
million tons) while the consumption demand is estimated to be about 45 - 46 million tons. Thus, the
domestic cement production capacity will meet the consumption demand and there is no shortage of
supply. From 2010 onwards, some new projects that are being built will continue to be completed and
put into operation. Therefore, Vietnam does not need to import clinker and will have a surplus for export.
However, currently the situation of losing the balance between the supply and demand in the South and
the North continues and needs the reasonable calculation and goods transfer to avoid the “virtual fever”.
