– Why is the real estate market in Ho Chi Minh City now only medium and high-end? In particular about the high-end story, the Vietnamese market really does not have a definition that correctly reflects the value.

“There is an apartment selling an apartment priced at 35 million VND / m2, instead of painting the wall, they clad stone up, the price increased to 40 million VND / m2, even raised to 50-70 million / m2, the room is high level “.

– In Ho Chi Minh City, about 15-20 years ago, in District 7, there was a project that only launched 99 units, which Mr. Khuong said “when calling the name of the project, people already know what level they are”.

– “Because it has its own unique values related to being called luxury or super luxury, and people are willing to spend a million dollars to buy an apartment,” said the senior director of Savills.
