What to Expect from Pakistan Realty Sector in 2019?

We are just a few weeks away from 2019 and while you are busy chalking out your new year’s plan, we are gathering data to let you know which turns Pakistan real estate sector will take in near future, especially for the ones who are gearing up to invest their hard-earned money in here and anticipating a promising future of this sector. Experts at HomesPakistan understand that not everyone is a pro here and newbie investors always need words of advice from experts to make viable investment decision, especially when it comes to real estate market.


If we look at Lahore property market, 2018 proved to be good for it. The market took a forward leap right after the general elections took place and the new government held office in centre. Soon after general elections, we have noticed a surge in the number of investors taking interest in Lahore property market. Instead of parking their investment in neighbouring countries, savvy investors seem to invest in their own country – as we are expecting positive reforms from new government for the positive growth of realty sector of Pakistan. This is the immediate impact but with time, the situation will get clearer, which will help create pro-investment environment for local and overseas investors alike. 
If we talk about current scenario, it is generally noticed that market is a bit slow at the moment. Even the posh societies including DHA, Johar Town, Model Town, the situation is same. Not just because the taxes and other fees (that were imposed by previous government) but investors usually shy away from investing during this time of the year. Most of them are waiting for the New Year to kick-start new investment plans. Generally, a dip is noticed by the end of year which usually leads to a bigger jump later.
Experts believe that it is that time of year when pro investors usually adopt hibernation stage to foresee market, decide their options and actively invest with the beginning of New Year. Most of the time, pro investors consult real estate agents and keep a check on periodic data of that specific area where they want to invest .

Karachi If we look at Karachi real estate market, we see a very happening 2018. Despite the fact that Pakistan Peoples Party has made government in Sindh, the new government in centre cast a positive image, which impacted positively on the investment sectors. Therefore, it would not be accurate to say that there has been any kind of low in Karachi real estate market, especially at this time of the year. Mostly experts are of the view that with the launch of new societies such as Bahria Town, new phases of DHA City, ASF Housing Scheme and improved law and order situation in Karachi, prices are inching upwards so it is the right time to buy property in Karachi before it goes out of your reach.


Islamabad is presenting a positive picture with positive activity trend in real estate sector. Still, new societies are managing to attract investors. New residential societies Gulberg Greens, Capital Smart City, Gulberg Residencia, Bahria Enclave and mixed kind of projects such as The Address hold charm and attraction for potential investors due to its growth and promising returns. Moreover, the city’s realty market has touched unprecedented heights, as Capital Development Authority (CDA) is taking every measure to ensure the establishment of world class residential societies in the capital.
This analysis is based on data extracted by HomesPakistan official website but we are very much interested in knowing your views related to the future of Pakistan real estate sector in 2019.

What Is 2019 Offering to The Future of Pakistan Real Estate Market?

With the unpredictable rise and falls in the real estate market in Pakistan, people who are interested in real estate and much curious to know about the future of real estate in Pakistan. Potential investors are always looking up to what lies ahead and early insights can help readers know about the further shake-up in the property.

An Overview of 2018 Real Estate Industry

As 2018 is about to end, we have noted so far that real estate market is in active progress from construction perspective. At numerous places, we observed many scams and frauds. Real estate market has proved to be one of the best investments in 2018 with attractive returns and lower tax. The real estate market in 2018 seemed to be a competition for all the property consultants and developers who wanted to grow significantly in market.

When it comes to the current market condition, from the last month, property rates are going a bit low due to the extension in real estate platform that allows people to get more chances of property investment and making it an asset for them.

Property Tax Announcement and the Ultimate Behavior of Buyers and Sellers

With the announcement of current property tax of more than 5 Lacs for those who buy land, property trend is expected to decrease but this decline is not expected to be a long-term one. The tax varies according to the investment range that one makes. People are trying to find solution of this issue and discuss the matter with their property consultants to contribute towards the stability of the real estate market.

When it comes to real estate about Pakistan, it seems more like a market of buyers than the sellers. The fact is, residential or commercial properties for sale are always more in number than the number of buyers. The actual buyers are normally waiting for the prices to decrease so that they can buy residential and commercial property for sale at a cheaper price. In this regard, the sellers are even more desperate than the buyers as they face difficulty in finding reliable buyers.

Normally sellers have to compromise on quality that leads to disturbance in the real estate market. After the latest 2018 tax reforms, buyers with white money are a bit difficult to find as there has been a restriction of filers on buying a property more than 50 Lacs. This is expected to help people with no tax record to avoid buying expensive properties.

Pakistan Real Estate Forecast 2019

Pakistan real estate forecast 2019 is the most awaited post of the upcoming year. In this years forecast we will give you an insight about the upcoming projects and various investments in selected areas all over Pakistan which are expected to perform well in 2019.  We will also soon make a video explaining it further.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask us and leave a comment or join our discussion forum.

The year 2019 is upon us and we all want to know what may be expected in the real estate sector in the coming year but before we move on to Pakistan real estate forecast 2019 let us first do a summary round up of the year 2018.

We wish you all a happy and prosperous 2019 and as a gift we will share with you ideas for future investment in Pakistan property in 2019.

Summary round up of 2018

2018 has been a great year in real estate regardless of what some may believe. At imlaak we have made huge profits for our investors in areas we mentioned in our Pakistan real estate forecast 2018.

DHA Peshawar, 9 Town and Goldcrest Mall (It was not mentioned in previous forecast but marketed by imlaak in 2018) offered huge returns on investment and up to 40 % gains were achieved. On the economic side though we were able to successfully hedge against the very rare PKR depreciation of 28% against Dollar.

As predicted in 2018, the real estate market was generally driven by home buyers rather than investors. The 4 Marla commercial file prices in Phase 8 and Rahber is the only thing that went down by the end of the year 2018 against my prediction but only by 10% and therefore we are still in a very safe zone.

Present market conditions

I am very optimistic for the Pakistan Real Estate Forecast 2019 and believe that a lot of great things lay ahead. will be expanding its limits to other areas as well soon and we will try to bring international markets at our platform as well to offer you valuable opportunities around the globe.

The present real estate market is most suitable for an aware investor who has an in depth understanding or the real estate market. I will therefore suggest that you utilize our consultancy services for future investments. It is a very small price to pay for decisions that will help you make millions and we will chart our plans for you in advance and help you manage your investments.

In my opinion the prices have dropped by 20 to 30% by now in areas which have not shown any increase in the year 2018 and thus a great opportunity lays ahead for expats as they can invest at much cheaper prices now.

Most importantly due to instability in Bahria Karachi, we strongly suggest to keep away from it in 2019 unless things change and Bahria town is able to get out of the present judicial issues.

2019 Pakistan real estate forecast

In 2019 Pakistan Real Estate Forecast we see prices to remain stable in general and at the same time certain areas will offer good returns on investment.
