The change in thinking about buying houses of Vietnamese people
Mr. Tam accepted to sell his apartment loss to move to another urban area because he was bored with no utilities and his house was degraded even after buying it for a few years.
Two-bedroom 60m2 apartment in Tu Liem, Hanoi was bought by Mr. Nguyen Minh Tam (32 years old) when his family had a new member in 2013. At that time, the real estate market froze, so housing prices plummeted. , many investors launched a huge promotion to attract customers, so he closed a base because he thought "the price is quite good".
However, the short-lived joy when moving to live, Mr. Tam realized the mistake when he was too concerned about the price, accepted to buy meager utility apartments, stuffy living space ... His building living high 30 floors but only 4 elevators and small courtyard for residents to play, supermarkets, convenience stores away from the apartment.
"Every day, it takes me nearly 15 minutes to wait for the elevator to go to work. The house is quickly degraded, many walls are peeling off, soaked in water. Previously, the house was only for living but now, I need a proper living space. ", said Mr. Tam.
Home buying criteria gradually change
Many people who buy apartments when this type of housing is booming in Vietnam also have the same problem as Mr. Tam when putting the price factor on the top, then the position, investor, quality quality of life. In the middle of the market downturn and freezing, a group of customers with real demand still accepted to buy houses because of the sharp decline in prices, many policies from investors.

In fact, a series of lawsuits happened at many apartment projects in big cities. If the projects have not come into operation, investors and residents sue each other about the project progress, interest rates paid on schedule ... then at the apartments that have been handed over, they cannot find a common voice. on service charges. At this time, people began to be more cautious when they came down to buy a house.
From 2014-2018, the market witnessed many cases of legal fuss. Some investors implement the project without a license, sell the project without paperwork, lack of information appraisal ... causing many people to fall into the situation of buying a house but unable to live. At this time, people began to care more about the legal status and reputation of the investor before considering the factors of location, quality of works ...

The biggest influence on the decision to buy a house. The remaining criteria include: price, favorable location, quality, design, customer service, internal and external utilities and purchasing process.

Changing living environment because of epidemics and pollution
Besides the real estate market alone, pollution and epidemics also make people's buying psychology change. In recent years, the serious air pollution has made the concept of green real estate more interesting. A series of green and environmentally friendly projects are launched.
The explosion of Covid-19 made the real estate market quieter and was considered a "compensation" for changing the mindset of home buyers. If before, Mr. Tam said that the house is just a place to live, then after a period of social separation, the lack of utilities, the playground makes him think about moving house.
Experts say that the epidemic makes people more interested in the health system and supply necessities. Regarding residency, people will realize the importance of a well-planned living space, low construction density, safety and adequate utilities.
In many real estate trading floors, although the market is quiet, the number of customers learning about the high-end housing segment in multi-utility urban areas of prestigious investors has increased sharply. "After the epidemic is over, this product line will become scarce, even increase in price because of high demand while the supply is not much," an expert said.
He said that projects with full utilities in the inner area often have higher prices, but, in the current context, prices are no longer so important. "Buying a house with many utilities, the price is higher but if divided equally among the beneficiary costs, it will be extremely reasonable price. Meanwhile, buying a house without infrastructure, without legal, without utilities. later efforts, time, money ", experts assert.
