Banks tighten real estate loans amid land fever in Vietnam

Mortgage rates have increased 1-2 percentage points over the past few months. Viecombank and OCB, have set interest rates of around 10.5% and 11.5% respectively for real estate loans over 12-24-month terms. Meanwhile, other lenders offer rates of 12-12.5%. Banks are also offering loans at no more than 70% of the property’s value, instead of the previous 80-90%. They attribute tightened lending to concerns over market risk as real estate credit risk has jumped from 150% to 250% in past few months. Currently, State Bank of Vietnam only allows banks to lend 40% of short-term mobilization funds for long-term loans, instead of 60% in the past. However, real estate loans are usually long-term loans. Banks have also tightened mortgage lending in some of HCMC’s suburban districts because of steep land price hikes compared to last year, like an 85.7% hike in Binh Chanh, 170% in Can Gio District and 140% in Cu Chi District. Provinces around HCMC are also experiencing the same trend with land prices on the main streets of Bien Hoa City in Dong Nai Province now costing nearly as much as in some urban areas of HCMC. Even land prices at Trang Bom District have risen by up to seven times in the past 1-2 years.
