Ken Research reveals Vietnam real estate market outlook to 2025

According to the report, the period of 2013-2016 was marked by a steady stream of supply be it office spaces, retail spaces or residential properties, owing to increasing GDP and FDI into Vietnam.

As the demand started slowing down, the government enforced a major regulatory change to the real estate law in Vietnam, with a new regulation named the “Housing Law”, which allowed for foreign nationals to be able to own, rent and lease property if they had a stamped entry pass port and were not individuals entitled to preferential treatment or diplomatic immunity. As a result, it reduced the demand-supply gap.

From 2017 and onwards, the total number of international players in each respective sub market increased. Newer segments such as condotels, housing societies, co-working spaces, smart and green buildings emerged.

As the per capita GDP rose, the spending power of the people also rose thereby, resulting in rising rental rates and property prices and the market becoming more competitive. Young couples, IT & Finance Companies, high comfort tourism became the upcoming target markets for various real estate sub sectors.

Vietnam Office Real Estate Market

Vietnam’s office market is a thriving real estate market, with both domestic and foreign brands for instance, Vincom group or the Deutsches Haus respectively, offering office spaces in categories such as Grade A, Grade B and Grade C offices. Boasting an average occupancy rate of 91.2% in 2018, Vietnam shows strong potential in terms of demand and increasing rental rates reflect that landlords are also benefitting in the market.

Vietnam’s GDP in 2018 amounted to USD 244.9 billion and GDP per capita amounted to USD 2,563.8, in 2018, indicating greater ability to own and rent luxury and Grade A office properties.
