This study is conducting an empirical examination on the determinants of firm profitability of real estate companies listed on HOSE from 2010 to 2018. The difference from previous studies would lie in the usage of explanatory variables, the quantity of sample and the period of study. Based on data of 34 companies with 306 observations, this research methodology applies descriptive statistics, correlation statistics and regression analysis. The empirical results revealed that firm size, asset turnover, liquidity have a significant impact on firm profitability, while firm growth showed no significant effect on profitability denoted by ROA and ROE.
