Property services firm CB Richard Ellis Viet Nam predicts that more investors will be able to capitalise on opportunities in Hanoi 's real estate market this year, as last year's tough market conditions ease.

"For some people, companies and individuals, 2012 will be a year when Vietnam finally becomes a reality," said CBRE Vietnam managing director Marc Townsend at the firm's fifth annual "Fearless Forecast" presentation in Hanoi on Feb. 16.
