Condominium market: Launch activities continued to be buoyant in Q1 2018, with 8,800 units launched in Hanoi and 9,503 units launched in HCMC. Absorption continued to be positive for both cities, while average primary prices in both HCMC and Hanoi witnessed a slight decrease due to stronger focus on mid-end segment. At the same time, concerns about safety issues emerged in during the quarter, which may affect sentiment of certain buyers, whilst creating opportunities for developers with good track records.
Office market: There was no new supply in the office markets of both Hanoi and HCMC in Q1 2018. Amid stability in supply, average asking rents as well as occupancy rates improved for both cities, especially for HCMC. Looking forward to the rest of 2018, office market continues to be landlord-driven for HCMC, while for Hanoi the demand is also warming up.
Retail market: In Q1 2018, there was one shopping mall coming into operation in the non-CBD area of HCMC, while in Hanoi total supply has remained flat since Q2 2017.
