Nguyen Manh Khoi, deputy director of the ministry’s Housing and Real Estate Market Development Department, said the MoC wants to disclose information to investors, customers and managers, but the process of collecting and collating the information from provinces and cities has been slow.

Meanwhile, the number of houses completed in the quarter reached 22,004.
Under the reports from 15 out of the 22 provinces and cities, the market witnessed 48,260 successful real estate transactions, including apartments, houses, land, offices for rent, condotels, resorts/villas and officetels in the third quarter.
