According to statistics, there are more than 50 real estate projects in Da Nang. The total number of apartments, semi-detached houses and villas is about 50,000 units.


In 2018, the real estate market in Da Nang city has made great changes thanks to the advantage of a series of groundbreaking infrastructures, as well as the fact that many routes are easily connected to the central area, and some projects suspended for years will be restarted by investors. Apartment projects targeting middle-income customers will be favoured by investors. In 2018, mid- and high-end product prices did not fluctuate much, the possibility of price increase is very low.

The real estate market in Da Nang in 2018 is expected to be better than 2017 due to a number of supporting factors, including policies and decrees related to new project planning and especially more efficient real estate market segment.

After the APEC event ended successfully with the participation of major economies such as USA, Russia, China, Japan, Korea and Canada, the experts considered APEC 2017 a breakthrough in the process of socio-economic development of Da Nang. This is an opportunity for Da Nang to fully exploit its strength of tourism and new real estate projects in 2018.

Along with the proliferation of new types of real estate, such as: shophouse, condotel, officetel in Da Nang, according to investors in 2018, land will continue to be the preferred segment and most likely will spark an “explosion” of transactions. In Da Nang, there are two areas in which land and townhouse projects will “explode”, the South and North West, because these projects contains sustainable growth conditions, while the bridges are built to create a vital artery, expanding the urban space to the South. As a result, it is convenient for residents of this area to go to workplaces, as well as entertainment spots in the city center or Hoi An ancient town.

The property market in 2018 will develop stably, as the government has tools to manage and monitor. The first bright spot that can be seen in the market is the inventory of real estate is on the decline. In addition, there have been changes in policy to make Vietnam's property market more attractive to foreign investors. This can be seen through the fact that the influx of domestic and foreign investments into real estate is rising. Many foreign investors from Japan and Korea are interested and they need an open and transparent mechanism to invest in Da Nang city.

The development trend of Da Nang city is moving towards mixed projects of entertainment services, especially night entertainment, food shopping and large-scale art shows, to attract and retain visitors.

On April 27, 2017, the Da Nang People's Committee issued Official Letter 3073/UBND-SXD to adjust the transactions and real estate business in the city. It assigned the Department of Construction to regularly update information on real estate projects approved by the People's Committee of the city, the area with transferred land use rights that was invested in infrastructure for residents to build their own houses under Decree 11/2013 / ND-CP and eligible projects to sell houses in the future on the City Portal and website of the Department of Construction. At the same time, it also assigned the Department of Information and Communications, Da Nang Radio Television, Da Nang Newspaper, City Police to coordinate implementation.
