  1. 5. Real Estate Recovery Expected in Late 2023, Accelerating into 2024


AMinister of Construction, Nguyen Thanh Nghi, discussed the recent challenges faced by the construction and real estate sectors in Vietnam. The construction industry experienced a decline in various market segments during the first half of 2023. The real estate market, on the other hand, suffered due to limited supply, with only 30 projects offering approximately 4,500 apartments available for sale, a 37.5% drop compared to the last six months of 2022.


However, there is optimism for a recovery. Dismantled real estate projects are expected to boost supply, and it’s predicted that the real estate market will gradually improve towards the end of 2023, gaining momentum in 2024. VnDirect anticipates a clearer rebound in the second half of 2024 when monetary policies are relaxed. The current market conditions, characterized by limited supply and sustained demand, are significantly different from the oversupply and high inflation of 2011-2012, suggesting a faster recovery this time.


Effective policy implementation, including interest rate reductions and government support programs, will play a crucial role. Furthermore, the approval of draft laws related to real estate by the National Assembly, combined with a clearer economic recovery forecast for both Vietnam and the world in the last quarter of the year, are expected to contribute to the revitalization of the real estate market. The ongoing dismantling of real estate projects will also help ensure a stable supply and drive market growth in the near future.

  1. 6. Real Estate is coming to a new phase of price increases


Falling interest rates, a period of cheap money, monetary easing, cleared cash flow… are factors that will greatly affect the real estate market.

Some comments say that real estate has bottomed out since April 2023. This is the time when buyers press prices very deeply on sellers and it is the freezing period of real estate. Currently, the level of price reduction as deep as in the first quarter of 2023 is no longer available.

From May 2023 up to now, trading has resumed. Investors have many suitable choices and good prices according to their expectations, buyers can buy a house at a very good discount of 30%.


According to DKRA Group’s May 2023 survey, new supply of the land and suburban land segment in the month reached the highest level in the past 5 months, increasing 2.1 times compared to the previous month despite a decrease of 36% compared to the same period. period of the previous year. DKRA Group’s May report also shows that the land plot segment is showing clear signs of recovery.

According to a report by, the first 6 months of the year in Hanoi market recorded an improvement in sales in Hoang Mai, Nam Tu Niem, Long Bien and Ha Dong districts with an increase of 2-6% compared to the previous quarter. Land plots in Hoai Duc and Thanh Tri areas have seen a clear growth of 4-6% in both buying demand and selling price.

Some provincial markets such as Bac Ninh, Bac Giang, Quang Ninh, Thai Binh in the North or Long An and Binh Duong in the South are also gradually recovering demand for housing after a long period of decline.


However, when the market recovers, real estate prices will increase again. Therefore, this time is a good opportunity for people with available cash flow to “hunt” for themselves real estate with good locations, good price increase potential, and high discounts. If you pass this stage and enter the recovery period, it will not be easy to hunt for a good house at an affordable price.
