Part 3: Houses

1. What kind of apartment is the most popular in your country?

Well, I believe it ranges wildly depending on the locations in Vietnam. For example, if you live in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, where the vacant ground is a rare commodity, you’d most likely encounter apartments in high-rise buildings for leasing. These would of course be equipped with at least one or several lifts to accommodate the needs of their residents. However, if you’re in Da Nang or other coastal cities in central Vietnam, flats would primarily be around 5 stories, and their acreage tends to be a lot bigger than those in megacities.

  • vacant ground: bãi đất trống
  • commodity: hàng hóa
  • high-rise: cao tầng
  • leasing: cho thuê
  • accommodate the needs of their residents: đáp ứng nhu cầu của cư dân
  • acreage: diện tích

2. What is the difference between the houses that young people and old people live in?

There are several factors that differentiate the accommodation of the elderly and the young. In terms of houses for those still in working age, they would opt for inner-city residence, which is easy to commute to work on a daily basis. This is totally because of their hectic schedule at work that requires them to go to work as quickly as possible. On the other hand, retired people would tend to prefer a mansion or a villa near the outskirts, separated from the fast-paced corporate life that they used to ‘endure’ back in the day. These people, I think, would prioritize their inner peace above all else.

  • fast-paced corporate life: nhịp độ nhanh của cuộc sống công ty

3. What are the differences between houses and apartments?

In my opinion, there are two primary differences between these 2 kinds of accommodation. First of all, apartment owners simply do not have roof rights, which means they are all partial owners of the common space in the building. Secondly, unless one lives in a private mansion, houses do not regularly consist of a swimming pool, while most high-end flats provide their residents with that amenity. There could be more reasons but for me, those two are the main ones.

  • roof rights: quyền sử dụng mái nhà
  • amenity: tiện nghi

4. Do people usually buy or rent a house? Why?

This is totally dependent on the individuals and their income. On the one hand, a high-income or wealthy person would, most of the time, purchase a house with full accredited proof of ownership. This would provide them stability, and sometimes, it could be a form of long-term investment. On the other hand, those who are in the lower side of the income scale would most likely rent accommodation because buying one means having to spend a huge sum of capital expenditure, which they simply cannot afford to. Of course, there can be other personal preferences. For example, some people want to move from place to place, shifting accommodation every now and then, and buying a house is cumbersome in that situation.

  • accredited proof of ownership: bằng chứng về quyền sở hữu được công nhận
  • stability: sự ổn định
  • capital expenditure: chi tiêu vốn
  • cumbersome: cồng kềnh
