Real estate is increasing continuously, few affordable houses are available
Ho Chi Minh City Real Estate Association (HoREA) has just sent a report to the Prime Minister proposing some urgent solutions to solve the shortage of housing supply and reduce house prices to stabilize. real estate market towards transparent, healthy, stable and sustainable development.
Assessing the current real estate market, HoREA said that the market is experiencing a shortage of housing supply, especially affordable commercial housing (affordable housing) and social housing. These are two types of houses that meet the real needs of the majority of middle-income people and urban low-income people.
“Due to the lack of supply while the total “demand” is very large, according to the law of supply and demand, housing prices have increased continuously for more than 5 years, as shown by the housing price index of our country is higher than more than 20 times higher than the average income of the society, making it difficult for many households and individuals to create housing. While compared to industrialized countries, the house price index is only 6-7 times higher than income,” said HoREA.
The association also pointed out that the market situation of both supply-demand imbalance and “out of phase” imbalance in the high-end housing segment is very evident in the last 2 years, when the average price of housing population only accounts for 1% of the new housing supply in 2020 and disappears in 2021 (0%), while high-end housing accounts for 74%.
This leads to the state budget revenue from the land and the real estate market not commensurate with the potential, which is very evident in the revenue from land use levy in Ho Chi Minh City in the 2016-2021 period of 82,932 billion. VND, accounting for only 5.9% of the total budget revenue, but potentially, this revenue can reach around 10% to be appropriate.
According to HoREA, these “inadequacies” originate from obstacles from legal regulations, limitations in law enforcement, the lack of serious law enforcement, and even some cases of law violation. laws of some enterprises and “informal” forces (traders, storks, etc.) in the market.
Increasing supply drags down house prices
Faced with this fact, HoREA has proposed a series of urgent solutions to increase the supply of commercial and social housing to reduce house prices and stabilize the real estate market.
In particular, HoREA proposes to remove obstacles for real estate and commercial housing projects subject to legal review, inspection, inspection and investigation in the direction of requiring investors to fulfill financial obligations. or additional financial obligations to the State (if any). Then allow the investor to continue implementing the project, or grant a certificate of land use right and house ownership to the customer.
The Association also proposed the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment to submit to the Government to direct localities to urgently issue regulations on criteria for separating into independent projects for the area of ”public land” interspersed in housing projects to auction of land use rights.
For the area of ”public land” that is interspersed in a housing project but is not eligible for separation into an independent project, it shall be allocated or leased land to the investor to contribute to increasing the project’s supply and production. housing products for the real estate market.
In addition, HoREA proposed assigning the Ministry of Planning and Investment to assume the prime responsibility for, and coordinate with the Ministry of Construction, Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Justice in developing investment procedures for building commercial housing projects. “standard” trade for localities across the country to uniformly implement, contributing to increasing the supply of projects and commercial housing products to the market.
In addition, the Association also proposed a solution to allow investors of commercial housing projects to exchange social housing equivalent to 20% of the land fund of the commercial housing project to ensure the supply of social housing. and suitable for the actual situation.
Notably, HoREA also proposed a solution to “healthy” the capital market, especially the corporate bond market.
According to Mr. Le Hoang Chau, Chairman of HoREA, there is an “insecurity and anxiety” mood among some business leaders because of a “forest” of administrative procedures and many “overlapping and confusing” legal regulations. “, enterprises are very “afraid of legal risks” in business investment activities.
HoREA proposed that the Ministry of Finance submit to the Government for consideration and amendment of Decree 163/2018 and Decree 81/2020 to correct and ensure healthy corporate bond issuance, ensuring legal rights and interests. legitimate for investors and customers.
