Globally, the real estate market adheres to a well-established cycle that typically renews itself every five years, offering investors the chance to secure investment returns. In Pakistan, this pattern provides an opportunity to acquire properties at reduced rates following a peak, making it an appealing prospect for new investors.

Our market sources confirm that real estate prices, both for developed properties and plots, have reached their lowest point. Some asset holders, confronted with the challenges of retaining their properties, are even open to selling at rates below the already discounted market prices. Astute investors are on the lookout for such opportunities, and there is no better time to act judiciously.

Let’s delve into the factors that foreshadow the forthcoming revival of the real estate market, a development that is bound to capture widespread attention:

1. Resolution of Political Uncertainty

In the global investment landscape, stability is paramount. The ongoing political turbulence in Pakistan is unlikely to persist indefinitely. Economic considerations necessitate a resolution to this chaos, possibly through an election, which can bring much-needed stability.

2. Crackdown on Dollar Hoarding

Efforts to curtail dollar hoarding have yielded significant results. Law enforcement and tax authorities have implemented measures to monitor and restrict dollar trading, particularly in the black market, resulting in a decrease in the dollar exchange rate against the Pakistani rupee. Investors are diverting their focus away from the dollar, a shift that is likely to channel investments into real estate.

3. Regulation of the Gold Market

Similar to the dollar, the gold market is undergoing regulation. The government aims to record and register gold investments to generate revenue and prevent the hoarding of black money in gold. The volatility in gold prices, influenced by fluctuating dollar rates, is making investors cautious about gold investments.

4. Stock Market Volatility

The Pakistani stock market is notably sensitive to political factors. While there is hope for better days ahead following the announcement and conduct of elections, the unpredictable nature of Pakistani politics casts uncertainty over stock investments.

Now, let’s turn our attention to the current state of the Pakistan real estate market as of September 2023.

Insights from Real Estate Experts

Experienced real estate investors, with their keen insights, recognized the forthcoming market movement ahead of others. Properties and projects that remained subdued during the recent economic downturn, causing significant value depreciation, are now gaining momentum. Plots, plot files, under-construction developments, and commercial ventures are witnessing a consistent surge in demand, leading to gradual increases in asking prices while still presenting attractive opportunities.

Emerging Buyer Demographics

Lower property prices have enticed new buyers who were previously priced out during the last market upswing. In response to evolving investment dynamics, real estate developers have lowered their inventory prices by introducing more affordable options. This is a commendable move, particularly in the face of rising construction material costs that also affect end-users.

Shift in Investment Preferences

Investors, primarily driven by the pursuit of profits, prefer short-term investments to avoid locking their capital in long-term projects. At present, viable short-term options are limited and come with their share of risks. Consequently, there is growing demand for vertical developments that offer guaranteed rental yields. This trend is drawing investors towards this sector, as it promises potential rental yields of up to 15% on apartments or commercial spaces in under-construction projects, coupled with potential capital gains of up to 50% in the medium term.


It is clear that projects experiencing increased demand will soon witness a substantial rise in rates. Do not miss out on this current investment upswing; the time for action has arrived. To facilitate your investment journey, feel free to reach us!
