There have been positive signs for the property market's recovery, said industry experts and economists.
 
In an earlier development, for the first time in the last two years, the central bank decided to cut interest rates by 1 per cent, bringing the discount rate from 4.5 per cent to 3.5 per cent, overnight rate for inter-bank from 7 per cent to 6 per cent annually.
 
According to the central bank, average inter-bank overnight rates have fallen by as much as 0.8 per cent, to 2.7 per cent on March 20, marking the first dip under 3 per cent since the end of August last year.
 
Economist Cấn Văn Lực, a member of the national finance and monetary council, said a dip in interest rates would likely result in much-needed improvements in the property market.
 
Lực said it might translate into lower prices as investors gained access to lower-interest loans while giving them a financial boost to finish ongoing projects or start new projects.
 
In addition, a lower rate might give buyers more confidence to make purchases and improve market attitude in general as many potential buyers were sitting on the fence waiting for prices to drop further.
 
"Since the beginning of the year, interest rates have dropped by 1-2 per cent with commercial banks introducing additional credit packages. It can be expected that rates may further decline in the near future," he said.
 
However, Lực remained cautiously optimistic about the effect of lower rates on the market, saying not all businesses might benefit the same. Established developers with many previously successful projects and competent financial management would likely receive better offers from banks and buyers.
 
In light of the corporate bond market, property developers were able to issue VNĐ20 trillion worth in bonds since March 5 when numerous policy changes took place to stabilise the market, a marked improvement over 2022 after a number of violations and high-profile arrests put the market to a halt.
 
According to a report by VNDirect, corporate bonds from property developers for the entire year of 2022 were recorded at VND62 trillion, a 79 per cent decline compared to the previous year.
 
Đinh Minh Tuấn, director of batdongsan.com.vn Southern office, said, among other measures, extending bond terms allowed developers more time to address issues and secure financial resources.
 
"With the return of confidence in the market, developers may issue new bonds to help finance their existing ones," he added.
 
Bondholders who want to cash out after maturity still have that option while those who wish to continue holding onto them can avoid sell-out and losses of assets, according to the director.
 
In a recent decree, the central government has ordered local authorities to work around the clock to review and resolve ongoing legal issues with property projects under their jurisdictions in an attempt to support developers and protect buyers' rights and interests. VNS
