2. Covid-19 “clarifies” the virtual office field  


The Covid-19 pandemic also further clarified the emergence of a niche segment of the office market, namely the virtual office. During the Covid-19 epidemic, virtual office services were considered by start-ups and small businesses as the optimal solution to help businesses have an operating virtual office at a lower cost than renting a space.  


Virtual office providers help tenants register an official address in their building with services such as receiving mail, providing meeting rooms when needed. Businesses using the service only need to register an office address and work anywhere.  


Currently, there is no clear legal basis for setting up virtual offices while businesses do not have physical seats or specific lease contracts but only need an address to register their business, register their name, business domain. Businesses using this model will usually rent by the month or pay rent according to the number of days sitting at the office. Therefore, it is the responsibility of companies that provide virtual office services to receive the reports of the rental companies and keep in touch. With certain flexibility, this model will only be suitable for start-ups or newcomers to the Vietnamese market.  


The current alternative office model is suitable for certain customers such as freelancers, start-ups, small businesses or just setting foot in the Vietnamese market. It helps companies solve financial, employee health, and safety issues.

Covid-19 has taken away the luster of the townhouse rental market throughout 2020, is expected to continue to deal a stronger blow to this segment in the second quarter of 2021 with a new outbreak of the epidemic.  


As the segment most strongly affected by Covid-19, the townhouse rental market has almost not found a “light door” from 2020 until now. According to a survey by, the pandemic has strongly impacted townhouses with the most negative front for rent in the past 10 years. Since the outbreak of the disease in 2020, the rent of townhouses on major roads in Ho Chi Minh City, especially in the central area of District 1 and District 3, has continuously decreased sharply, but it is still difficult to retain tenants. If in April 2020, the rent of townhouses decreased by 10-20%, then by the second outbreak in July 2020, the rent of townhouses decreased to 25-35%. By February 2021, the third outbreak of the epidemic pushed the rent of townhouses down 40%, even in many areas, the   


The rental real estate market is forecasted to face a big challenge in 2021 when the number of vacant spaces is increasing and the occupancy rate is very slow. Especially with CBD areas and non-essential businesses. It is forecasted that with the current difficult situation, it is possible that the number of tenants will continue to decrease and the shift to e-commerce will increase, which will put great pressure on townhouses for rent soon. The situation will gradually improve when the Government’s vaccination policy is widely deployed and the disease is thoroughly controlled.

All of these points are strong signs of the growth of the real estate market in Vietnam and give a good outlook for capital appreciation for investments in the long run.  Interested in investing in Vietnam?  Contact the CVR team for more details on available properties today! 



4. Despite the epidemic, why does Vietnamese real estate still attract foreign investors?  


The author mentioned some main reasons why VN real estate still attracts foreign investors despite Covid:  

Firstly, Vietnam holds a fundamental advantage as a large market with a young and dynamic demographic, and the quality of Vietnam’s human resources is increasingly improving.  


Secondly, the investment environment in Vietnam is gradually improving, with significant support from the government for the manufacturing, trade, service, import-export industries, and real estate.  


Besides, FDI is still pouring into the manufacturing sector, creating favorable conditions for the real estate industry to have positive changes.  

The author expected that In 2021, 3 segments that attract investors’ attention include residential real estate, office, and industrial real estate.  


This shows a positive signal of Viet Nam real estate to grow stronger after Covid.
