Marking a decade of recognising the Gold Standard of real estate in one of Southeast Asia’s most dynamic markets, the 2024 edition of the PropertyGuru Vietnam Property Awards today officially launched from the Renaissance Riverside Hotel Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City.

The launch of the latest Vietnam edition of the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards comes as the property market looks forward to a period of growth, supported by better policies, access to capital, and sentiment.

Boosts to the market

Increased capital for real estate, more focused and supportive policies, and improved sentiment among stakeholders are expected to boost the Vietnam property market in 2024, according to Batdongsan.com.vn, the official portal partner of the awards. Adjusted interest rates and regulated credit market growth, coupled with increased foreign investment, are expected to drive capital for property.

Batdongsan.com.vn further expects new policies such as the Land Laws, Housing Laws, Real Estate Business Laws, Credit Institutions Laws, and Real Estate Tax Laws to have positive impacts on the market. Consumers look forward to the laws contributing to a better regulated environment, with more companies obliged to meet higher standards of development and more agents professionalised. The new laws are also expected to accelerate public investment especially in key infrastructure projects.

Positive signs of recovery in the market include strong growth in condominium selling and renting prices in cities such as Hanoi. Agents are also reporting higher number of transactions in the housing market while the Demand Index for land finally halted a months-long period of decline.

Jules Kay, general manager of PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards and Events, said: “With promising trends emerging in the Vietnam real estate market, we are pleased to once again invite stakeholders to join us for the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards in 2024. Vietnam this year fills us with excitement as the market prepares to benefit from enhanced access to capital and favourable regulatory changes, coupled with growing foreign investment. As we celebrate the ongoing recovery of the real estate industry, our awards will contribute to positive consumer sentiment by giving deserving developers the widest platform to showcase their quality and resilience.”

New accolades

New titles have been added to the list of open categories at this year’s awards, expanding the accolades to more types of real estate like investment properties, nature-integrated properties, and sales galleries.

Developers that excel in sustainable design, sustainable construction, energy efficiency, and social impact can also vie for the all-new ESG awards.

The selection process is fair, transparent, and credible, thanks to an independent panel of judges comprising experts from various segments of the real estate industry. HLB, the global network of independent advisory and accounting firms, upholds the integrity of the selection process, which encompasses rigorous deliberations and site inspections.
