OurManifesto

We have a singular vision at EZ Land: to provide the people of Vietnam with quality housing they can afford. We combine local Vietnamese insights and expertise, European roots, and decades of global knowledge and experience to deliver housing solutions for the modern age.

Vietnam is changing rapidly. Today, it is one of the world’s fastest-growing economies, with GDP growth in urban areas such as Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) among the fastest in Asia. These demographic and economic developments have led to a shortfall in housing for Vietnam’s upwardly mobile younger generation. EZ Land is addressing this shortfall through the provision of quality housing in key areas of Saigon, while providing a wealth of investment opportunities.

With the support of an EU-regulated investment fund, and extensive experience in the real estate and finance sectors, EZ Land aims to meet the upsurge in demand for housing while building a better future for the people of Vietnam.

Message fromthe founders

Vietnam’s economy has been growing at an impressive rate in recent years, averaging 6.45% annual GDP growth since 2000. This growth is showing no signs of slowing. In fact, Saigon is expected to experience the second-highest rate of GDP growth among Asian cities over the next four years.

It is against this backdrop that we would like to introduce you to EZ Land, and present you with a unique opportunity to help us build a better future for the people of Vietnam.

EZland is targeting of affordable housing market, where we see a growing shortfall in supply – a near-perfect investment scenario, which will only intensify in the years ahead. We would like you to join us in this ‘Golden Age of economic opportunity in Vietnam.

Apart from the remarkable economic growth of recent years, the Vietnamese market also offers:

  • A growing population of more than 100 million people;
  • The fastest growing middle class in Southeast Asia;
  • Shrinking household occupancy as traditional living arrangements change.;
  • Rising urban populations resulting in increase demand for housing in cities;
  • Low inflation low unemployment and stable interest rates;
  • A stable economy under government control;
  • A growing shortfall in supply of affordably priced apartments.

EZ Land’s first project – HausNeo – has already launched in Saigon’s District 9, on the eastern side of the expanding central business district. Read on to find out more about this exciting project, and EZ Land’s plans for the future.

We look forward to building a better Vietnam with you.

EZ LandHistory

In 2014

Mr. Olivier Dung Do Ngoc and Mr. Oliver Brazier expanded the activities of their Luxembourg-regulated investment fund into Vietnam with the creation of the Affordable Housing Fund.

Through detailed market research, interviews and focus groups, the fund sought to identify the specific housing needs of the people of Vietnam and Saigon. The findings revealed strong demand for high-quality, affordable apartments among young families and first-time homebuyers.

These findings led to the establishment of EZ Land, a local company that would be the Affordable Housing Fund’s exclusive development advisory partner. The fund, backed by secure European and international investment, is entirely focused on providing much-needed family homes, with the goal of establishing EZ Land as a proven and trustworthy local developer.

Vietnam's
market
fundamentals

Saigon is the first Vietnamese city to be chosen for development projects by EZ Land. The city’s rapidly growing population (averaging 3.9% growth per year) has already surpassed 10 million. This growth is increasing demand for apartments, with young couples and families seeking quality affordable housing in the country’s most densely populated city.

Saigon is also one of the fastest growing cities in Asia in terms of GDP, with strong growth forecast for at least the next four years. Due to limited land availability in the city centre, a decentralisation trend is transforming Saigon’s outer Districts, bringing improved infrastructure to these areas. New expressways, bridges, an airport and additional Metro train lines are just some improvements coming to areas such as District 9.

Top consumer needs

  • For Saigon consumers buying an apartment, the top considerations when purchasing are:

  • Affordability

    Apartments priced from VND 1 billion – 1.7 billion (USD $44,000 – $75,000).

  • Location

    A maximum of 35 minutes' transit
    to the city.

  • Security

    Guards, CCTV, safe roads, child and fire safety measures.

  • Quality

    Parity between what is promised and the final quality of the properties' materials and finishes.

  • Convenience

    Good property maintenance and family-friendly facilities.
