Real estate sector advised to reduce dependence on bank credit

The real estate market has slowed in the first months of 2019, which experts attributed to limited bank credit sources for the market.

Real estate sector advised to reduce dependence on bank credit

According to President of the Vietnam National Real Estate Association (VNREA) Nguyen Tran Nam, credit for the real estate sector has been tightened and is getting tighter.

Credit growth in the sector has reduced from 18 percent in 2016 to only 5 percent in 2018.

Nam said the diminishing credit flow into the real estate sector has greatly affected the operation of the market, as most capital is sourced from banks.

Le Hoang Chau, head of the Ho Chi Minh City Real Estate Association suggested real estate firms ensure business efficiency and prepare land stock, while focusing on the quality and progress of their projects as well as transparency in management.

Businesses should find prestigious and competent foreign firms and investment funds to work with, he added.

 

According to Chau, less dependence on credit loans is also a chance for the sector to restructure. Businesses should reform their capital sources for sustainable and transparent development, he advised.
