In the first five months of 2016, Da Nang, Vietnam's central economic hub, welcomed nearly 1,000 new apartments to the market, a 44.6 percent increase compared to the same period last year.

Da Nang’s real estate market sold about 1,000 apartments as of May 31, a growth of 74.6 percent on-year. Low class apartments accounted for 45.8 percent of total transactions followed by medium class (36.3 percent) and high class (17.9 percent), according to the leading real estate consultancy CBRE Vietnam.

Medium and low class real estate projects made up 78.9 percent of the total property supply in Vietnam's central city of Da Nang.

The latter's drop followed the launch of a project in Son Tra District, which offered housing at $600 to $700 per square meter.

CBRE added that nearly 60 percent of buyers were from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh.
