Many real estate projects offer supporting loan packages despite strict credit policy

Some bankes have suspended credit approval and loan disbursement for real estate companies under active risk control policy in this sector. This is causing concern for many people as the opportunity to buy a house is reduced. 

The State Bank has required strict control of credit in high-risk sectors, including real estate. Many commercial banks such as Sacombank, Tecombank, Agribank, etc. have started to tighten loan approval, control disbursement limits for housing loans, and even stop lending to the real estate sector.

These motives have made many homebuyers and investors worried about losing financial leverage. Van Quyet, a long-time investor in Ho Chi Minh City, shared that he was worried that using financial leverage to invest in real estate would be difficult when banks tighten credit.

Financial support from investors is still the lifeline that many real estate investors and buyers need when house prices continuously increased over the years.

“Although I’m not a surfer, and mostly investing long-term, I’m also worried that it will be difficult for me to get a loan. My financial situation is quite stable at the moment but it is impossible to predict in the current economic situation. To be on the safe side, I’m only looking at projects that have a long-term loan and payment support policy, which make the payment process more comfortable and ensure financial capacity in unpredictable circumstances”, he said.

Dr. Nguyen Tri Hieu, an economic expert, said that the land fever can basically be controlled by tightening credit. But from an investment perspective, the stakeholders who are using financial leverage will not be able to invest, so the demand will decrease. Even real home buyers have difficulty because they cannot get loan to buy houses. On the other hand, ithgtening credit in real estate sector also alerts the risk of increasing loan interest rates. The consequence of higher interest rate is that investors will be unable to withstand the interest rate and will cut loss.

However, not all banks have stopped lending for real estate business, or buying houses. Banks are still lending to real estate project developers, especially to investors who have a full and reputable land fund in the market. In fact, there are still many investors who maintain preferential lending policies and support payment with home buyers. For example, Nam Long still applies a purchase support policy with the projects that the business is offering for sale, namely Akari City (Binh Tan) and Flora Panorama (Binh Chanh). With the Akari City project, Nam Long applies to customers to choose from two preferential loan packages including 0% interest rate support for 12 months, 12-month principal grace period or a fixed 6% loan interest rate and debt grace original for 2 years. In addition, customers are also supported by the investor to extend the payment period up to 30 months from the time of construction until the handover of the house.

With the Flora Panorama project in the South Saigon area, Nam Long Group also applies the same loan policy and allows buyers to pay 50% until the house is handed over. Thus, with the initial capital of only 30%, after receiving the house, the remaining interest and principal must be paid, reducing financial pressure. In fact, this is one of the best customer support policies on the market today that only large, potential investors can research and apply. Akari City is offering phase 2 for sale with a price range of 45 million/m2, while Flora Panorama is priced from 50 million/m2 and is about to be opened for sale in April 2022.

Investors with a clean land fund, clean legal status, and strong finance are still prioritized by banks in the list of loans.

In Binh Chanh, the Westgate complex of investor An Gia is also attracting buyers thanks to the maximum payment policy of 699 million VND and will not continue to pay until the house is received in the fourth quarter of 2023. For the rest, the investor supports interest rates, graces the principal until receiving the house, and at the same time, commits to a profit of up to 18%. RioLand’s MT Eastmark City project also applies a loan support policy for buyers such as paying 30% of the apartment value (about 600 million VND), the rest is supported with a 0% interest loan, debt grace At the time of receiving the house, helping buyers have 3 years to relax and balance their finances. This project is also about to be introduced to the market in April with a selling price of about 36 million/m2.

Another investor, Sky Garden of Phu Dong Group, also announced an attractive payment policy, buyers only pay 20%, banks lend 50% during 2 years of construction with 0% interest, grace period. principal until receiving the house. At the same time, the investor commits to buy back the house with an interest rate of 12%/year. Thus, a 70m2 apartment costs about 2.8 billion VND, young people only need to have a modest accumulated capital of about 560 million VND to be able to buy.

According to Mr. Le Hoang Chau, Chairman of Ho Chi Minh City Real Estate Association, with real estate projects developed by reputable investors, clean land fund, full legality… the fact that banks link to lend to customers is still happen normally. This is also the type of real estate that buyers feel secure because there is a link between the project investor and the banking system for lending, instead of worrying about being squeezed like a personal loan to buy investment land, collect agricultural land. . Buyers who need a bank loan to buy an apartment completely “depend” on the project investors. This is also the time to choose investment segments to limit risks, not to be financially disrupted when there is a change in policy.

Nam Long (HOSE: NLG) successfully launched Flora Panorama, estimated sales at VND 900 billion

On April 16, 2022, Nam Long Group (Hose: NLG) officially launched to market Flora Panorama riverside apartments in Mizuki Park township (26ha, South Saigon) with expected sales revenue about VND 900 billion.  So within just a month, apartment projects in HCMC have contributed over VND 2,300 billion to Nam Long’s 2022 plan. 

More than 600 customers joined the Launching Ceremony for Flora Panorama Apartments

On the morning of April 16, 2022, Nam Long Group (NLG) and its two Japanese partners, Hankyu Hanshin Properties and Nishi Nippon Railroad held an introduction ceremony and organized registration for 300 Flora Panorama condos in the 26 ha Mizuki Park, a key township project in South Saigon. Sales reached VND 900 billion within just 3 hours and the absorption rate was 80% of the total apartments launched.

This is a great success to kick off Nam Long’s Flora+ apartment, which targets the international standards for the mid-end market with improvements in architectural design and finishing materials. Flora Panorama is one of the most beautiful pieces of Mizuki Park, which owns a rare riverside location and an expensive 360-degree panorama view of the river and the township. At the same time, Flora Panorama is located next to The Mizuki luxury villa compound, the marina, and the 3,800-m2 square which is a unique facility highlight for residents.

Previously, on March 19, 2022, NLG also successfully held a launching ceremony for the Flora Akari AK7 and AK8 in Akari City phase 2 (8.5ha, Binh Tan) with recorded over VND 1,400 billion in sales. So within just 1 month, NLG has achieved an estimated sales revenue of more than VND 2,300 billion from the apartments in Ho Chi Minh City.

According to CBRE’s Q1/2022 report, there are 1,247 apartments sold in HCMC, 78% less than the previous quarter and 53% less than the same period in 2021. The shortage in new supply is the main factor causing the decline in the number of apartments sold. However, the absorption rate of new projects is at 80%-90%, meaning that the demand for housing remains high. Nam Long’s forecast for 2022 is quite optimistic as the company owns a large land fund ready to develop in well-known townships in the market. Amidst the extreme shortage, holding a large number of apartments in HCMC as well as launching new products in existing townships in line with new trends have given Nam Long great advantages. 2022 is the 30-year milestone for Nam Long to prove its firm position in the market as a sustainable real estate developer.

The absorption rate of 80%-90% in new projects shows some good signs in the real estate market this year.

In addition, under the pressure of rising costs, especially the cost of construction materials and location, the increase in housing prices is inevitable. At the same time, the temporary suspension of credits and loans for the real estate sector under the risk control policy worry people that they won’t be able to afford a house, especially working families with less saving. In reality, banks still provide loans to real estate developers with a good reputation and legitimacy in the market. Understanding the concerns of customers, NLG continues to coordinate with strategic banking partners to support 50% payment until handover with lower interest rates for house buyers.

Specifically, at the Flora Panorama project, at a price of VND 2.8 billion per unit, customers are still supported with a loan up to 70% of the contract value, and 12 months of interest-free. This is a great advantage, helping Flora Panorama attract a large number of customers, even though it has only been announced to the market since the beginning of April. Nam Long’s initial results show good signs in this year’s real estate market.

Real estate in Binh Chanh warmed up following a wave of new industrial zones

Binh Chanh will likely be the new industrial center of HCMC despite the area has run out of land. The booming industry sector has created countless opportunities for the real estate market but also puts great pressure on housing demand in the near future.

Has 4/10 of the largest industrial parks in HCMC

In the 2010 – 2015 period, HCMC’s industry sector led the country in economic indicators and had the largest land funds and industrial parks in the country. However, since 2016, there has not been a new industrial park. This has caused impacts on the city’s economy as the industry sector still accounts for a large proportion of the GDP. According to Hua Quoc Hung, Head of the Management Board of Ho Chi Minh City Industrial and Export Processing Zones, the city’s industrial land fund has been reduced to only 300 hectares of land in industrial parks can be used.

Amidst the situation, Binh Chanh was proposed as the destination to build new key industrial zones in Ho Chi Minh City thanks to its advantage of land availability and convenient traffic. Indeed, HCMC’s People’s Committee has submitted a request to the Government to add the 700-hectare Pham Van Hai Industrial Park in Binh Chanh district in replacement of the 3 other industrial parks that were removed from the planning, including Phuoc Hiep, Bau Dung, and Xuan Thoi Thuong. Notably, Pham Van Hai Industrial Park will apply modern technology, focus on attracting investment in electricity, electronics, automation, start-up support, high-tech industry, and supporting industries that are not labor-intensive and cause pollution.

Binh Chanh is the proposed location for the development of key industrial zones in Ho Chi Minh City.

So after adding Pham Van Hai Industrial Park, Binh Chanh now has 4 out 10 largest industrial parks in Ho Chi Minh City, including Le Minh Xuan and extended Le Minh Xuan Industrial Park (800 hectares – top 2), Pham Van Hai Industrial Park (approx. 700 hectares – top 3), Vinh Loc and extended Vinh Loc Industrial Park (500 hectares – top 4), An Ha Industrial Park (more than 150 hectares – top 10). According to statistics, Ho Chi Minh City reserves 5,800 hectares of land for the industry sector. This means Binh Chanh occupies nearly 30% of the land fund, becoming the industrial center of HCMC.

Housing demand is growing strong

The industrial boom is putting great pressure on urbanization rate in Binh Chanh, especially when the upcoming 700-hectare industrial zone will lead to huge housing demand for hundreds of thousands of people at the same time. The demand came from two main sources, experts and senior engineers who need quality housing and workers who need affordable accommodation. Industrial growth also ignites an explosion of utility services, premises, factories, etc. for the new residents.

Binh Chanh was previously on the list of areas with a shortage of housing supply. This area needs more than 490,000 m2 of housing area, equivalent to nearly 10,000 new apartments each year to keep up with the demand. However, this number will only meet about 30% of housing demand in Binh Chanh in the period 2020-2021. The shortage of supply amidst rising demand has caused real estate prices to surge.

From VND 27 million/m2 in 2017-2018, the apartment price has increased to VND 45 million/m2, villas/townhouses from VND 40 million/m2 to 90-150 million/m2. From 2021, the land price has also increased by 25 to 30% depending on the location. Prices of completed projects such as Calla Garden, The Easter City, and Lovera Vista have gone up VND 33-40 million/m2 from VND 25-30 million/m2, some high-end projects including The Conic, Saigon Saigon Mia, Senturia South Saigon are traded at VND 50-60 million/m2 and at VND 90-120 million/m2 for townhouses/villas.

Despite continuously reaching peaks, Binh Chanh real estate prices are still in the low end of ​​Ho Chi Minh City and have a lot of room for increment. Compared with the average apartment price of VND 60-70 million/m2 in the East, Binh Chanh’s VND 40-45 million/m2 is still low. It is worth mentioning that the housing supply in Binh Chanh is forecasted to be limited as there are not many new products launched. There are not many properties with high demand and good prices. Especially for high-end products for experts and high-paid workers, there are only a few outstanding projects.

Housing demand in Binh Chanh is forecasted to explode strongly following the wave of industrial development in this area.

For example, Westgate with more than 2,000 apartments has the almost-lowest price in the market, i.e. around VND 40 million VND/m2. Westgate has 4 towers, and more than 50 facilities, with a large green coverage and a 4-hectare park. This is one of the few projects that allow buyers to pay upfront only VND 699 million and waive payment until Q4/2023 when they receive the apartment. The remaining balance could also be put on an interest-free loan in two years. As a result, Westgate is very popular with homebuyers.

Or the 26-hectare Mizuki Park township, Flora apartments are offered at VND 40 million/m2, while Valora townhouses and villas are sold at VND 95-120 million per unit. In particular, Mizuki Park launched The Mizuki riverside luxury compound, limited to only 39 villas. These limited luxury products are priced from VND 30 billion per unit. In early 2022, after successfully opening and selling all 166 Flora Mizuki MP9-MP10 apartments, Nam Long plans to launch 400 apartments of Flora Panorama project, which is located right next to The Mizuki, at an expected price of about VND 50 million/m2.

Besides the new 700-hectare Industrial Park affecting the market in the short-term, in the long-term, Binh Chanh Real Estate will also benefit as the district is promoted to city in 2025. Thus, investing in projects with complete legality, center location, and large scale will be a safe option. On the other hand, due to the upcoming promotion to City and increasing inbound of experts and senior engineers, high-quality apartments will become the trending properties in this area.

According to the investor, The Mizuki villa will satisfy all 5 senses, sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch, creating Zen living environment for the residents. The entire subdivision has 39 villas of 3 different types: garden villas, canal villas and river villas. Each villa has 4-5 bedrooms and 7-8 bathrooms, diverse in area and layout.

Price

The Mizuki Villa is priced following its unique selling points as the most beautiful subdivision in Mizuki Park township, limited edition and unique concept. The price of The Mizuki villa varies depending on type and location, from VND 28-50 billion for a garden villa, VND 38-48 billion for a canal view villa, VND 48-80 billion for a river view villa. At this price level, The Mizuki villa is a limited product specified for upper class owners who have strong financial and personal taste.

Batdongsan.com.vn concludes that The Mizuki project has a unique concept, focusing on expressing the style and personal taste in each villa design, landscape and facility. In the luxury segment, a private living space and privileged facilities are not enough to attract rich buyers. They need a creative living space that reflects their personal aesthetic and personality. If The Mizuki Villa does well with the Japanese Zen concept, it will be a big plus to help it stand out and attract customers among other compound villa options in Ho Chi Minh City and the neighboring area.

Progress

The Mizuki riverside villas with high class facilities

The Mizuki integrates a series of facilities including riverside walking trail, riverside park, canal park, lounge, private garden in the villa, etc.

According to Nam Long Group, investor of The Mizuki, the exclusive facility system will shape the project and reflect the personal taste, style and remark of each homebuyer. A private, isolated living space with exclusive amenities is not sufficient to attract the modern elites, who need a creative living space based on their personal taste and feeling.

“So we have researched and included in The Mizuki high class facilities that the elites are looking for,” said a representative of Nam Long Group.

Shahab Karmely, founder of KAR Properties, who has many years in the real estate industry also shared the same point of view. In an interview with Fox Business, he said: “When rich people buy houses, they invest in lifestyle.”

With a central location in the modern integrated township Mizuki Park, convenient traffic to the center of Ho Chi Minh City, The Mizuki offers a quiet and relaxing space in the heart of the city. The project is located near key intersections, connecting to major areas.

The outstanding feature of this project is the three riverside facades with a riverbank of more than 400m long, while the other facade is the Marina Square connected to the commercial, entertainment corridors of the integrated township Mizuki Park. This allows a peaceful, comfortable, and feng shui green living space.

Residents of The Mizuki will enjoy the high-class facilities such as riverside walking trail, 3,600 m2 of riverside park, 1,500 m2 of canal park, BBQ area, outdoor sports area, children’s playground, lounge, family party area, swimming pool, gym, yoga, sauna, etc.

The Mizuki’s representative said that the project is expected to raise the living standard of elites in the South Saigon area. The pier will allow docking of a variety of boats.

In addition, the project focuses on pen design in a private, isolated space with a delicate combination of natural and environmentally friendly materials.

The art of space planning in harmony with the green coverage and multi-layer security, along with the cascading design at The Mizuki, help blur the boundaries and distances, bringing residents closer to nature but still ensuring safety. The million-dollar view of an immense green space of trees and rivers helps the owner to enjoy relaxing moments right from the house, without the need of going to resorts or hotels far from the city.

The Mizuki – Investment home in South Saigon

As riverside land supply became scarce, the riverside villas are proving that this segment would be even more attractive. It is not difficult to understand why The Mizuki Riverside Compound in Mizuki Park has received a lot of attention even though it has not been officially announced.

Identifying products for the upper class

According to a report by Knight Frank, riverfront property is always the most expensive choice, 36.8% more expensive than regular property. Especially during the pandemic, buyers tend to look for riverside living spaces with larger green coverage. Demand for this type of property increasing while the supply becoming limited is the main reason for the significant increase in selling price. For example, the value of waterfront properties in the UK are 49% higher than comparable homes located further away from the water. In Australia, the difference soaks to 89.3%. Riverfront property values ​​increased by an average of 2.1% in Q2/2021, which means that the average prices were 12% higher than they were a year ago, according to Knight Frank’s Waterfront Index.

The same situation happened in Vietnam’s market. In Ho Chi Minh City, according to Savills Vietnam’s real estate report for Q1/2021, in the villa segment, new supply is scarce and at the lowest in 5 years. This is one of the main reasons for selling prices in the secondary market increased sharply. Especially in the past 2 years, there are only a few of new riverside villa projects launched.

Savills also said that the supply of townhouses and villas will continue to be low as HCMC Housing Planning till 2030 prioritizes the development of high-rise housing. In the past decade, the low-rise housing segment accounted for less than 10% of total new products, which is expected to drop in the near future.

Rare and containing all the essentials of an ideal living space, riverside villas become an identifying property for the upper class, which will not be easy to own, even for people with money.

Answering to the demand for riverside villas

Amidst the market scarcity, the timely launch of The Mizuki, with outstanding values, is an answer to the demand for riverside villas in the market, hence attracting a lot of attention. This is also a rare remark of local brand Nam Long in the luxury real estate segment in Ho Chi Minh City, after a long time focusing on affordable housing and other well known villa products in urban areas in Dong Nai and Long An.

Located in the most beautiful location of Mizuki Park Integrated township, 39 villas with 3 riverside facades The Mizuki not only provide an ideal living space, but represent 39 unique artworks for buyers with a good aesthetic taste.

Private, isolated with multi-layer security, along with a series of exclusive facilities only for the residents such as riverside park, riverside walking trail, BBQ garden, yoga room, sauna, etc., The Mizuki is a solution to the luxury ladder that buyers with a sophisticated lifestyle are looking for.

In particular, the 3,200-m2 Marina Square is one of a few high-class facilities in the city, which not only solves the need for berths but also justifies the luxuriousness and new living trend of the upper class. New life of the modern elite – canoe landing right in front of their house. The  Marina square is a symbol of high class living in the South Saigon area.

The project with 3 riverside facades has cascading facade design to guarantee the million-dollar view for every villa – Perspective Planning. 

With smart and ingenious cascading design, The Mizuki is one a very few projects in the South which have 3 riverside facades and every villa offers a million-dollar view. Carrying the spirit of modern tropical architecture and a natural touch of Zen, The Mizuki is a symphony about nature and people, filled with originality, bringing pure emotions and absolute peace to the owner.

In the bustling and noisy urban life, The Mizuki is an expensive low note, a worthy investment home  that Nam Long put a lot of passion into developing.

Properties in closed urban areas attract genuine buyers

In the competition to attract genuine buyers, large urban areas are on the verge of winning as customers lean towards homeownership in these areas, especially after Covid-19 pandemic. 

Genuine buyers prefer properties in urban areas

Urban areas at the size of hundreds of hectares, with full facilities integrated have been the first choice of genuine buyers, especially when living space becomes a greater interest post Covid-19.

According to Batdongsan.com.vn’s market research, the majority of townhouses and apartments in high demand are located in large urban areas across Ho Chi Minh City, Long An, Dong Nai, etc. For example, Mizuki Park township (Binh Chanh), has a size of 26 ha and more than 2,000 residents. The current occupancy rate for phase 1’s completed subdivisions is 98%. Other subdivisions are highly welcomed in the market and are being sold at increasing prices of 20 to 25%. In early October, the 2 blocks MP9-MP10 with 166 apartments opened for sale at VND 2.5 billion/unit, also attracted buyers’ interest.

Besides villas and townhouses, the apartments in these urban areas also attract genuine buyers even though the selling prices are not low. Illustration

In the East, at the 198-ha Van Phuc City developed by Van Phuc 10 years ago, the occupancy rate in the completed subdivisions reaches 60 to 70%. Although the transfer price has gone up by 50 to 60%, it still receives buyers’ attention. The project is currently offering townhouses, villas, and later, apartments at high prices yet high liquidity. Despite there is still little information about the launch, apartments in this urban area have been considered a good investment on the market.

Similarly, at another urban area i.e. Vinhomes Grand Park in Ho Chi Minh City, Thu Duc (previously district 9), The Beverly subdivision consisting of 10 luxury apartment buildings opened for sale at an expected average price of VND 68 million/m2 but the demand has remained high. Since opening for sale in 2019, this mega township has supplied thousands of apartments to the market which were all quickly sold out.

Not only in Ho Chi Minh City, urban projects that meet the requirements for facility, security and resident’s education level in surrounding suburbs also attract buyers,  such as the 355-ha Waterpoint (Long An) developed by Nam Long Group. At the end of 2020, the investor officially handed over 600 townhouses and villas in the Rivera 1 and Aquaria 1 to customers. At the moment, the majority of these properties have been occupied by residents. In Q4/2021, the investor will continue to hand over the Aquaria 2 subdivision and is expected to attract more residents.

Or a series of ongoing projects in Dong Nai, Binh Duong, namely Aqua City Bien Hoa (1,000ha), Long Hung City (277ha), Son Tien (380ha), Swan Bay (200ha), Angel Island ( 205ha), etc.

The vitality of a project has become more important 

The added value when buying real estate in the urban area is not met by all projects. This is the main factor that makes even though the pandemic is complicated, urban residential projects are still chosen by real buyers to settle down, even though the house prices in these projects are often higher than the selling prices of many retail projects. . To create vitality for the project requires investors to have vision, capacity, project development experience and importantly, enough resources to be able to implement projects according to the given plan in a timely manner. feasible and fulfill commitments with customers.

 In addition to facility and infrastructure, high occupancy rate is also a contributing factor to attracting buyers in urban areas. 

According to Nguyen Huong, General Director of Dai Phuc Land, the vitality of a project is reflected in the pace, including construction speed, operation pace, and above all, the human factor. An urban area with high occupancy rate, crowded streets, and bustling vibe is highly vital. Usually, a project site needs to be filled by 50% within 3-5 years to have good vitality. The faster the occupancy rate, the better the vitality and the higher the added value.

Discussing the factors contributing to project vitality, Huong said that the reputation and brand value of the project developer are prerequisite elements. This ensures the feasibility of the project. A project even with a beautiful and shimmering plan, will not attract buyers if the construction site is quiet. The development of a project must be accompanied by a sales plan, a clear and specific construction plan and a commitment to delivery schedule.

Furthermore urban planning must ensure a full and synchronous ecosystem for the residents. Many projects are beautifully designed but developed in fragments, to include traffic infrastructure but ignore facilities. As a result, residents find it difficult to live because their basic needs are not satisfied. The project location must be closed to neighboring residential areas according to the principle of oil spill. A project will hardly have any vitality if it is “a market alone”. Traffic must be conveniently connected for work, study and entertainment. There are only a few projects that do this well. Vitality will be a decisive factor in the success of a project. As the living quality is improved, the real estate value increases, giving homebuyers and investors the returned benefits.

Investors house hunting in Binh Chanh causes price surge

After a lot of changes in planning, many investors are property hunting in Binh Chanh to prepare for the opportunity of price increase.

Aiming for land in Binh Chanh as soon as the news about Binh Chanh becoming district came out, Nguyen Trung Nghia (district 6, HCMC) shared that it was not surprising that land price in this area continued to escalate over time. Been following the market since the beginning of the year, Nghia said that even during lockdown, many investors quietly searched and acquired land and apartments in this area. Especially since mid October till now, the property hunt has been more aggressive as notary services become easier after the city reopened.

“Binh Chanh is undergoing changes in administrative planning, making it more attractive. This area inherently has low housing prices in Ho Chi Minh City,  and diversifying land funds, so it is easier to find suitable products than other areas. Without comparing to the East, housing prices in Binh Chanh are much lower than in Nha Be, and the increase margin is also larger. Thus it is easy for mid-end investors to find and buy real estate. After Binh Chanh’s proposal to convert to a city was known,  more investors rushed to the area and the land price also increased as a consequence” Nghia said.

Property hunting has become more aggressive in Binh Chanh since this district proposed a roadmap to convert to a district/city in 2025. Illustration

Binh Chanh real estate market has become an investment attraction in Saigon South area after a series of information about it converting to district/city. As noted by Batdongsan.com.vn, since this district confirmed the transition to the district (quarter 1/2021), the demand for real estate has increased 30-40% over the same period. In the third quarter of 2021, during the time of social distancing, many places recorded a sharp decrease in the demand for housing, but the southern districts still had a good recovery rate, especially in September 2021, the demand for housing in Ho Chi Minh City was still growing. This increased 35%, and in October and November, the number of real estate buyers in this area doubled sharply during the period of the gap.

The wave of investment poured in, causing Binh Chanh real estate prices to continuously escalate. According to the HCM City Department of Construction, when I first heard about the fact that Binh Chanh district can be converted into a city/district, the price of land in the population has increased. 6 months ago, the price of Binh Loi commune was about 2 billion VND/person, now the land has increased quite high, far exceeding the above figure. Currently, the project land in Binh Chanh ranges from 35-220 million VND/m2 depending on the area, the average price of apartments is 37-45 million/m2. At the beginning of the fourth quarter of 2021, real estate prices in general did not have big changes, but there were still some places with an increase of 3-5% compared to the beginning of the year.

In the context that the supply of real estate in the central districts of Ho Chi Minh City is constantly standing still, the wave of real estate hunting is pouring into the suburban districts of the South and the East, in which the South is having the upper hand because of its ownership of many projects. The new project was implemented with a series of information on administrative and infrastructure transformation. Most of the buying power for apartments is concentrated on large-scale urban projects, while most of the land plots are small projects and free residential land.

Welcoming the wave of investment, many businesses with projects deployed in this area are actively selling at the end of the year and recording a strong increase in buying demand. Recorded from investor Nam Long Group, this business has just launched 166 Flora Mizuki MP9 – MP10 apartments belonging to Flora Mizuki Park Binh Chanh project. According to Nam Long’s representative, Flora Mizuki has a selling price of from VND 2.5 billion/unit, an attractive price in the context of a limited supply of apartments priced at about VND 2-3 billion in the HCMC market and housing prices. Binh Chanh increased continuously, so the project recorded a large number of interested customers. Nearly 40% of buyers last time were investors hunting for hoarding. Currently, this urban area has more than 3,000 households living.

Housing supply in Binh Chanh market is considered to be insufficient for the speed of urbanization and population growth of this district. Illustration

Another project in Binh Chanh, the Westgate, was launched by An Gia Real Estate Group in Q4 this year. With a total area of 3.1 hectares, the Westgate luxury complex includes 4 20-storey towers, providing the market with 2,000 apartments in the center of Binh Chanh, at the price of approximately VND 40 million per m2. Three out of four towers were sold successfully to the market given positive signals. The last tower is now open for sale.

Furthermore, a series of existing urban areas including Corona City Binh Chanh, Charmington Golf & Life Binh Chanh, Tan Tao Central Park, South Riverside, Lavila De Rio, Lovera Vista, etc. have been traded actively in the secondary market with selling prices increased by 5-20% compared to the initial prices.

Commenting on the development potential and orientation of Binh Chanh’s regional construction planning, Nguyen Thien Nhan, former Secretary of Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee, said that Binh Chanh is the most populous district, has the longest border from South to West and location at the entrance to Mekong Delta, with the main traffic routes of HCMC and surrounding areas. In addition, the economic and trading scenes in Binh Chanh are very vibrant and diverse. In the coming time, Binh Chanh will be a traffic and logistics hub, not only for Ho Chi Minh City but also for the Southwest region. The district is aiming towards becoming an industrial and smart city with zero emissions; a center of high-quality healthcare and entertainment services for both Ho Chi Minh City and the southwestern provinces.

Secretary of Binh Chanh District Party Committee, Tran Van Nam added that, besides the advantages and potentials in recent years, the rapid urbanization rate and the annual population increase of over 30,000 people also caused shortage of housing and accommodation. The proportion of land types is not reasonable for the economic structure and population growth of the district. Indeed, more than 58% of land used for agricultural purposes has affected people’s life and economic development. The governmental structure based on units of districts and communes is no longer suitable for urbanization and growth. The Party Congress has approved the proposal of converting Binh Chanh into a district or city in the 2021 to 2030 period.
