HÀ NỘI – Total value of property inventory nationwide has reduced in the first 11 months of this year, according to the Ministry of Construction.
Until November 21, total value stood at VNĐ31.84 trillion, VNĐ867 billion lower than the value in the period from the beginning of this year until October 20, and a reduction of VNĐ19 trillion compared to end-2015, the ministry said.
It said property inventory would continue reducing but the fall would be slow, and the inventory would be mainly land at projects located far from city centres without infrastructure.
The ministry also said transactions on Hà Nội’s real estate market in November increased by 3.9 per cent month-on-month to 1,350 units.
Most projects offered in November were mid- and high-grade apartment products, including Eco Green project in Thanh Xuân District, Seasons Avenue project in Hà Đông District, Sunshine Garden project in Hai Bà Trưng District, and Parkview Tower and Osaka Complex projects in Hoàng Mai District.
Meanwhile, HCM City had 1,330 transactions on its municipal property market in November, a month-on-month increase of 8.6 per cent. Successful transactions were focused on mid- and high-grade apartment projects or land in sub-urban regions.
Selling prices in November slightly increased in the HCM City market but remained stable in Hà Nội. However, some places in Hà Nội saw increases of 10-15 per cent in the selling price for land, including Đông Trù, Vĩnh Ngọc, Đông Hội regions in Đông Anh District and An Khánh, An Thượng regions in Hoài Đức District, according to the ministry.
The ministry said the structure of property goods has been adjusted more reasonably. The nation had 63 projects registered to convert from commercial apartments to social apartments with a total volume of 42,370 units.
Lê Hoàng Châu, chairman of HCM City Real Estate Association (HoREA), said the domestic property market would continue to grow by the end of this year against the third quarter and prices of property market would also have increase.
The Việt Nam Real Estate Association also agreed that the local property market would be hot by year-end.
According to the Savills Việt Nam, a foreign property service provider in Việt Nam, in the third quarter of 2016, the Residential Index was 93.5 in HCM City’s market, increasing 0.6 point quarter-on-quarter (QoQ) and 4.5 points year-on-year (YoY).
There were approximately 7,500 sales, increasing 7 per cent QoQ and 43 per cent YoY. The absorption rate was 19 per cent, increasing 2 percentage points QoQ and YoY.
Low-grade apartment pricing was closer to most Vietnamese purchasers’ affordability and hence captures a larger pool of end-users. Developers offering reasonably priced units typically target areas with inexpensive and readily available land, and improved and planned infrastructure.
In Hà Nội’s market, the residential index was 105.8 in the third quarter, increasing 1 point quarter-on-quarter (QoQ) but decreasing 2.4 points year-on-year (YoY) with an average selling price of VNĐ27.6 million per sq.m.
However, there were approximately 5,660 sales, down 6 per cent QoQ and 15 per cent YoY. The primary absorption rate was approximately 33 per cent, down 2 percentage points QoQ due to the Lunar July Ghost month and 12 percentage points YoY, said Savills Việt Nam. - VNS
