It comes as a surprise that sales of luxury apartments have reached certain positive levels. In the first six months, total apartment sales reached 8,900 units, of which the mid-end segment accounted for more than 40 percent.
The number of low-end apartment transactions accounted for just 20 percent, compared to 26 percent in 2015, 33 percent in 2014, and 49 percent in 2013.
Prices have risen from four to six percent compared to the same period last year in the high-end and middle-end sectors, especially luxury projects located in prime locations with high-profile investors. Apartments in the mid-end segment in convenient locations are attracting a large number of buyers and prices are likely to go up.
The leading property service provider underlined that in the latter half of 2016, new and re-launched projects will go on the market and the sales growth rate could equal 2015. CBRE Vietnam evaluated that demand for accommodation and investment will dictate what the market does.
