Bloom of real estate resort project on the outskirts of Hanoi

Bloom of real estate resort project on the outskirts of Hanoi

Catching the trend of seeking a place to enjoy the weekend of Hanoi middle class, many resort projects in Ba Vi and Luong Son rushed to sell.

Ba Vi, about 40 km from the center of Hanoi, just over a year ago, only a few resort projects kicked off. But recently, despite no aggressive advertising, projects of several tens of hectares have been continuously introduced with a variety of products, from villas, completely adjacent, to land plots.

In Luong Son, Hoa Binh, a project was approved decades ago but not implemented because the investor assessed that the market was bad. Recently, this investor has restarted, offered for sale 6.5 million dong per m2 for resort land plots of 200 m2. Advertised with 5-star facilities, the project aims to become one of the major eco-resorts, targeting customers in Hanoi who want to find places to enjoy the weekend.

Going further, another project in Ky Son and Hoa Binh also launched nearly 60 plots of resort villas from VND 4.5 million per m2. With the price of each unit from VND 1 billion, the advertising investor may increase from VND 2.2 to 2.8 billion by the end of this year when the infrastructure and utilities are completed, while the new project has just started work.

Besides the villas, adjacent houses are completed, the current investors sell the whole type of resort land.

"The type of land plot is easier to attract investors because the amount of money paid immediately is not much, only about one billion VND for the villa floor from 150 m2. When completing financial obligations, they will receive a red book and wait until new finance is built", said Huy, a broker selling a resort project on the outskirts of Hanoi.

Most of the resort projects in the suburbs, with completed apartments, investors are committed to renting to exploit tourism, even the time of commitment to rent up to 15 years. With this option, the client entrusts the business investor then shares the revenue.

"The minimum profit is not less than 200 million per year. The investor will preferentially pay 5 years in advance of the rent, equivalent to VND 770 million minus directly from the contract value. Buyers also enjoy preferential policies of night stay in the chain of investors' system”, Mr. Huy advertised. For those who do not rent out to the investor, they can do business on their own.

Not only selling finished house products or resort land with permanent land use right certificate, some investors also sell land for gardening, vegetable growing, flower growing, camping... These land lots are about 400 million, 150-200 m2 wide, located in the overall resort. Some investors commit to making red books for customers after 6 months of fulfilling financial obligations.

The suburban real estate segment reappears based on the positive assessments of the market situation, the demand for weekend use of the capital's people.

According to Mr. Nguyen Thanh Trung, Deputy General Director of Archi Investment Joint Stock Company, the advantage of suburban resort is low cost. He calculated, if renting a resort apartment with 3 bedrooms, plus living expenses, on average, each person would spend one million dong a day. This level is consistent with the affordability of many middle-class people in Hanoi. This trend would affect the suburban resort real estate market, leading to an increase in investment demand.

However, Mr. Luong Ngoc Khanh, General Director of H&K Hospitality Hotel Management Company has a more cautious view when he thinks that the picture of suburban resort tourism is still good but investors also need to look on the other side that in the weekdays, the resorts are very empty. Moreover, many projects with unique designs and utilities that make a difference will be difficult to attract guests.

Meanwhile, Mr. Tuan, the investor who owns a number of homestays in the coastal area of Hanoi, said that one of the most important elements of the coastal resort projects was the landscape, freshness and facilities. Therefore, if buying a house in a big project but the investor does not deploy the dusty, disordered facilities, the investor may face risks during the operation. Therefore, he thinks that these factors need to be considered carefully before investing.

Hanoi: Condominium areas where prices will increase?

Hanoi: Condominium areas where prices will increase?

When the land fund in the West of Hanoi is exhausted, the South is currently very high in density, the East is gradually having big projects being exploited, investors are looking to the North and calculating the investment.

33,000 apartments have been offered for sale this year

The real estate market report for the second quarter of 2019 of CBRE - a unit specializing in real estate research and consultancy shows that in the first 6 months of this year, the Hanoi real estate market recorded 17,700 new apartments for sale. In particular, in Q2, there were 6,400 apartments for sale; The mid-end and affordable segments dominated the market, accounting for approximately 98% of total new launches in the quarter. In the high-end apartment segment, there are only 2 new projects, located in Tay Ho district.

According to CBRE's forecast, from now until the end of 2019, Hanoi's apartment price will remain stable as in the first months of the year...

Along with that, the sales were quite positive with over 40% of new supply and sales were sold in the second quarter. Specifically, there were 6,900 units sold, an increase of 17% over the same period. Notably, active sales and positive construction progress from urban projects and individual housing projects have contributed to positive sales in the second half of 2019.

Regarding the selling price, the average selling price on the primary market in the second quarter was recorded by CBRE at 1,337 USD/m2, up 4% year on year; But if comparing the same basket of projects by year, the primary price only increased slightly by 1%. Notably, the high-end segment has an average price of up to 2,345 USD/m2 - the highest price in this segment within the past 5 years.

CBRE also forecasts that new supply in 2019 is expected to be over 33,000 apartments and the mid-end segment continues to lead the market, accounting for approximately 70-80% of the total new supply and launch. This shows that the Hanoi market is still targeting the segment of buyers to stay. Besides, recent urban products also attract a part of domestic investors.

Meanwhile, due to the urban districts becoming more crowded, the housing supply is expected to gradually move away from a radius of 10 km from the center of Hanoi.

Condominium public high prices?

Talking with PV Infonet about the prospects of the real estate market in general and the apartment market in particular from now to the end of the year in Hanoi, Ms. Nguyen Hoai An - Director of CBRE Hanoi said, with the apartment market, households and infrastructure are among the influencing factors.

“Forecasting for the last months of 2019, apartment prices will remain stable as in the first months of the year. However, it is possible that the project in a prime location will have a relatively high asking price because there is not much land available to carry out those location projects” Ms. An said.

Answering questions of Infonet related to which areas of Hanoi will attract investors next time? Ms. An said: In the past 10 years, Hanoi has focused on developing in the West and has now grown very fast; Recently the movement is heading to the south and somewhat to the east of Hanoi.

“There are already beginning to see other areas within a radius of 10km north of the Red River - this is less developed than other areas of Hanoi; But due to its proximity to Noi Bai International Airport, the north of Hanoi is also a potential area for both housing and logistics. When the West land fund is exhausted, the South is currently very high density, the East is gradually having large projects being exploited, investors are looking to the North and calculating investment. We expect the northern area of Hanoi in the next few years will also be an active location with new projects”An added.

Regarding the recent "land hot status", Ms. An said that this is a characteristic of the developing market and the information is not transparent. Recently this phenomenon only occurred locally and happened in a short period of time. The future will still have such phenomena when there is information about new infrastructure being implemented, or new projects implemented by large investors.

"For example, in Hanoi a number of infrastructure projects have been announced such as Metro Line 3 connecting Hanoi Station to Yen So or the new Vinh Tuy Bridge will be built... will also cause investors excited in the surrounding areas", Ms. An said.
