We find it extremely difficult to get buying data in Vietnam rich enough for a representative sample of buying prices. Due to restrictions on non-resident foreigners buying property in Vietnam, ‘for-sale’ properties tend to be infrequently posted on English-language property sites (for consistency of data quality, our property data comes from English-language property portals, as switching between English and local-language property sites produces an uneven sample quality).
Gross rental yields figures for apartments in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh are therefore unavailable, due to insufficient data.
Round trip transaction costs are low in Vietnam. See our Property transaction costs analysis for Vietnam and Property transaction costs in Vietnam, compared to the rest of Asia.
