MARKET SITUATION

Vietnam real estate market still very attractive and full of potential

SGGP – 13 Oct, 2008

Many delegates attending the International Real Estate Federation (FIABCI) at the area of Asia - Pacific on the seventh time that has just been held in Ho Chi Minh City have assessed that the real estate market in Viet Nam still is full of potential and is very attractive.

A total area of 150,000 m2 at 15 centers and commercial areas is too small as compared with the

current demand, especially when the retail market is very hot with an increasing number of international tourists. Additionally, in Ho Chi Minh City, there are only about 6,950 hotel rooms that meet 3 - 5 star standards and the number of serviced apartments in Ho Chi Minh City are also limited. Therefore, according to many opinions, the investment opportunities in the real estate industry in Viet Nam in general and in Ho Chi Minh City in particular for the foreign enterprises are still quite good, especially when the policies of the government is becoming easier and the investment growth is good. In addition, Ho Chi Minh City still needs a large number of welfare apartments and housing areas.

Although the real estate market is full of potential, Vietnam is facing many challenges. According to some experts’ prediction, the real estate market can recover with its quickest speed in late 2009 because the current housing demand of people is very high. However, most of them have to rely on the support of the banks. In addition, the legal system in the management and development of the real estate market has not yet completed; the administrative procedures are too complicated; the implementation of the projects takes a long time and the increase in expenses lead to the price increases of the properties. Although the real estate market has currently remained at unchanged prices, investors and customers are still expecting further price decreases. As a result, it is difficult for the market to recover in the near future.

Bankruptcy risks of real estate enterprises

Vneconomy – 17 Oct, 2008

According to a survey of VietRees at the brokerage centers and transaction centers in Ho Chi Minh City, all of them have seen the state of few customers and the substantial reduction in the volume and the scope of activities. Most of them have only operated moderately. In the past, although many trading centers changed into trading floors, the transactions have still had no sign of prosperity. The transaction situation of apartments, townhouses and project land continues to drop (the price decrease has been over 50% as compared with before) and the prices for sale are leveling off.

In fact, currently, the capital source of the enterprises investing in the real estate business has been

unchanged. The basic reason is the current capital sources have been mobilized with the maximum capacity. Even so, in order to limit the negative impacts of the financial crisis towards VN’s economy, the government has directed the State Bank of Viet Nam to have measures of closely supervising the loans for investment, especially the investments in the high-risk fields such as real estate. The housing demand of people is still high, but most of them still need the support of the banks. Therefore, the fact of maintaining the policies that tighten the management of the real estate market together with the high interest rate is not only the difficulty of enterprises but also the barrier in their accessing the bank loans for the people who have real demands to buy homes.

With the current context, according to experts’ prediction, the enterprises will have to try to manage

themselves and wait in the short term. However, many real estate enterprises must face the actual risks

of bankruptcy in the long term.

Tuoi Tre – 14 Oct, 2008

Real estate brokers not need qualifications

Nguoi Lao Dong – 17 Oct, 2008

The People’s Committee of Hanoi city has officially announced the rent of the state-owned houses that have not yet been built and renovated in Hanoi on October 14th, 2008.

Accordingly, the rental prices of villas that belong to type I, II, III, IV are 11,300; 13,500; 15,800 and 24,800 VND/m2/month respectively. The rental prices of the normal houses at the grades of I, II, III, IV are 6,800; 6,300; 6,100 and 4,100 VND/m2/month correspondingly.

The rental price for houses have also been adjusted following the K coefficient including the region (K1), the number of stories (K3) and the technical condition (K4). However, only 4 districts including Hoan Kiem, Ba Dinh, Dong Da, Hai Ba Trung do not see any price adjustments, whereas the rental prices of the other areas have been adjusted on the downward trend. As for the K3 (the number of stories), the rent of the houses at the third storey are equal to the rental price list and the houses on the first and second stories have increased according to the K coefficients of 0.15 and 0.05. The rents of the higher stories have been reduced.

The formula that determines the house rent is: the rent = (standard price as stipulated) x (K coefficient) x (the usable area corresponding to the rent).

In addition, the People's Committee of the city has also concretely stipulated the cases of receiving the exemption from or the reduction in the house rent.

The Prime Minister has made a decision to change the name “The Central Steering Committee on dwellings policy” into “The Central Steering Committee on dwelling policy and real estate market”. In addition, the committe has also added some functions, missions and powers during its operation.

The Steering Committee is responsible for helping the Prime Minister to research, guide and coordinate in order to solve the crucial and interdisciplinary problems relevant to the real estate market; unifying the implementation of real estate business laws and the policies relevant to the development and management of the real estate market on the whole country.

The board is also responsible for researching, periodically summarising and assessing the real estate market situation to learn from the experiences, propose the amendments and supplement to the mechanism and policies relevant to the real estate market in accordance with the socio - economic development situation of the country.

In addition, the Steering Committee is responsible for providing guidelines on the management and operation of the real estate market activities of the Steering Committees of centrally-controlled municipalities. Meanwhile, it checks the implementation of the mechanism and policies towards the real estate market of the ministries, departments and localities.

Ministry of Construction has promulgated the documents to guide some Departments of Construction about granting certificates of real estate brokerage and assessment.

Accordingly, considering granting certificate of real estate brokerage to individuals does not depend on their education level. Regarding the jobs of real estate assessment, certificates of real estate assessment only need to be granted to the individuals of at least intermediate levels.

The laws on real estate business do not regulate the valid duration of real estate brokerage & assessment.

General trends on HCM market

Apartment market

In general, the situation of real estate transactions in August is slowler than July due to the psychology of keeping off buying houses in lunar July. However, selling prices have come back to the uptrend. Customers have more and more options to buy the properties whose prices are getting closer to their real values. According to the surveys of VietRees at the brokerage centers and transaction centers in HCMC, most of them have had only fews customers in HCMC. However, the prices of the real estate advertised for sale have levelled off or seen a slight decrease of 2 - 5% as compared with the last month. This reason of this price increase has been explained that construction materials prices in the past period have gone up dramatically, inflation has risen, the actual incomes of the people have dropped and most importantly, the sellers have been expecting the recovery of the market; as a result; the prices have become higher. Increasing prices have been recorded at the projects in good locations and ensure the progresses of the construction (the investors are continuing construction) and especially at the projects in which the houses are about to be handed over or the infrastructures have been somewhat completed and the construction speed is prompt.

The sale and purchase of apartments or house on an installment plan in August, 2008 has drawn interest from the buyers with real demands. Due to the fact that the banks have tightened real estate loans, many investors have flexibly implemented the way of selling houses on installment plans for many years to raise the capital for their projects.

According to the recent market surveys of VietRees, in addition to the previous factors such as location, prices and convenient traffic; payment method and the money to pay in the first installment when purchasing project houses are also drawing a lot of interest from buyers. The apartments with small areas of 50 - 80 m2 and the value of below 600 - 800 million VND are seeing

a sign of decreasing attraction. The reason is that the supply is significantly increasing while the inflation and the bank interest rates are rising sharply, therefore, the rent is not as high as the bank interest. Tenants now have more options than before. As a result, many apartments are left vacant because there

is no tenant.

The market of project land plots Similarly to July, on the whole, land prices have seen no decline and in some cases increased. The sellers think that the situation has become less difficult and they will not accept any more loss. Therefore, they will not try to sell properties at all costs like before. Land prices of some projects located in Nha Be, Dist.2, Dist.7 have risen by 0.5 to 2 million VND/m2. Transactions have appeared on the market although they are much less than in the beginning of the year.

CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL MARKET

Prices and consumption of construction materials going down more

Edited by VietRees

STOCK MARKET

Two bourses happen contrariwise, the market still sees many risks

Edited by VietRees

Chart source: Vietstock

Up to date: 17 Oct, 2008

According to some construction material stores, at this time of the previous years, until now this market has still seen no movement as compared with a couple of years ago. Not only the prices of the essential commodities such as steel and cement have decreased significantly but also the consumption has dropped by 30% - 60% as compared with 3 months ago.

In HCMC, currently, the retail prices of steel have been only 14 - 14.5 million VND/ton, decreasing 1-1.2 million VND/ton as compared with the middle of September. The retail prices of cement have been only 68,000 - 72,000 VND/sack, decreasing by 1,000 - 2,000 VND/sack as compared with August. In Hanoi, the prices of construction steel have ranged from 14.8 - 15.5 million VND/ton. Types of corrugated iron have gone down to 76,000 VND/m2. The retail prices of PCB40 cement on the market are declining and range from 0.85 – 11 million VND/ton. Only commodities such as brick, sand and gravel have decreased by 10% - 25% on the whole country as compared with 2 months ago.

The plummeting consumption and the large inventory of steel have made the producers and enterprises obliged to reduce the selling prices and even they have to suffer losses to pay the interests, bank loans, debts to the partners and expenses that have made steel prices go down more and more.

According to the enterprises and agents of construction materials , this market will be gloomy until the end of this year when the “stormy season” passes by and the real estate market becomes eventful.

The fact of U.S stock market increasing fairly significantly in the ending session at the dawn of 17 Nov (Vietnam time) & the information about the petrol prices being reduced have not yet been able to to encourage the investors to join the market more drastically.

Opening the session this morning, VN-Index has slightly increased by 1.16 points (or 0.3%), adding 385.77 points with the trading volume of over 3.5 million units.

Over 11.6 million shares and fund certificates (fund stocks) have been traded sucessfully with the value of 365.117 billion VND (a decrease of over 10% in volume and 5% in value).
