Hanoi, Vietnam — When you think about it, the realtors have been the backbone of the Vietnamese economy for generations.
But that’s changing, and the market is changing too.
For one thing, many big players are moving to Vietnam, and in doing so, the number of people in the country has more than doubled.
That has led to a surge in the number and quality of homes being sold.
The new supply of homes also means more competition in the market, which in turn has caused prices to increase, as well.
To compete, some realtresses have resorted to cutting corners.
They’re cutting the price of homes to meet the rising demand, then adding more inventory as demand goes up, as many of them are doing.
But the effect on sales is uncertain.
Some houses that were priced way below market value before are now going for $1.5 million.
And some prices have gone up by over 50 percent.
For some of the smaller players in the sector, that means they are in trouble.
For one, they’re underperforming.
And for another, they are using the same strategy as big players in other markets, like China.
To keep pace with rising demand for real estate in Vietnam, the market has been trending upwards in recent years.
And in many cases, this has helped push up prices.
That’s especially true in Hanoa, where house prices have jumped from $2.6 million in the early 1990s to $15 million in 2015.
But Hanoans real estate market has changed, too.
The number of homes in the city has dropped from 8 million in 2010 to 3.7 million today.
It’s a sign of how quickly things have changed.
As we head into the holiday season, we can expect to see more and more homes go for over $1 million.
That would be unheard of in Vietnam.
And when it comes to price, it’s hard to beat that.
In the U.S., you would need a home to be worth more than $50 million.
But there’s another trend taking place in Vietnam: the number-one seller in the entire country.
That is real estate agents, who are now the number one seller in Vietnam for homes ranging from $1,500,000 to $5 million, according to a recent study by the University of Virginia’s Miller Center.
That number is rising fast, as they’re the number two seller in Hana.
Realtors, agents and buyers are all in trouble, according the study, which was released Monday.
They are selling their own homes, often at the inflated prices they’re charging.
They were also charging much more than other buyers.
In Hana, the price tag for a home that is sold for $2 million or more is $2,600.
The median price is $1 Million.
In a country where prices are rising at a faster rate than anywhere else in the world, that makes for an extremely lucrative business for agents.
They have been buying up properties for as long as there has been real estate.
And as a result, the demand for them is on the rise.
They also have become increasingly popular with buyers who are willing to pay more for a property.
Hana has been the epicenter of that growth.
When the market was growing at a healthy rate, there were only about 500 agents in Hhaa.
Now there are about 5,000.
And that growth has had an effect on the realtor market in Hna.
The agents are starting to move out of the city, while the buyers are moving in.
And that has led them to charge more for their properties.
In addition, agents are finding ways to undercut other buyers who have moved in to the market.
They’ve started to advertise their properties on websites that are not listed in Hca.
They even start to advertise through social media sites, such as Instagram and Facebook.
It seems that the buyers of Hna’s homes are getting the most out of their homes, and selling them at inflated prices.
This is happening not just in Hwa but also in Hka, the capital of Hanoas southern province.
And the trend is happening even more rapidly than in Hva, where prices have been rising at the fastest rate since the 1970s.
But it is not only agents who are getting squeezed.
The real estate companies have also been hit hard.
It was a trend that was noticed a long time ago, said a Hka realtor who asked not to be named.
The Hka office of realtor association is now the only one in the province that doesn’t advertise.
Realty agents in Vietnam are facing tough times.
But they are also facing a very big problem.
They must compete in the same market with other buyers that are paying a lot more.
