As global real estate markets digitize, increasingly more buyers and sellers find property agents and projects online. This is especially the case among overseas buyers that wish to enter emerging markets such as Vietnam or Cambodia.
Before you invest in Vietnam property, it can be good to learn more about buying regulations, visa options, and taxes. Besides, you’ll most likely find units online or through an agent that you connect with online.
Therefore, we have written this article where we present some of the biggest real estate websites in Vietnam.
