There are different kinds of prob for agricultural land like I am living in Islamabad and our land is almost 170 km away from away Islamabad so I have 2 or 3 options for that.
1. To lease it out.
2. Partnership with farmer on 50 50 basis and the 3rd one just hire labor for it and will supervise them.
Option 1 and 2 are very risky as when you need your land farmers demand 25 percent land as a good will I am facing the same problem and now our case is in court. However labor rate is a good option but for that you have to supervise it by your own.
AGR land is good if you can maintain it by your own otherwise to invest in residential or commercial properties is much better.
Regarding your question, Islamabad is a good option for investment (can't give you feed back on on other cities). Well it depends on your taste also like commercial land is also very good for investment, residential plots and homes are good but what is your main theme to get some good rent or to circulate your amount?
Well to tell you this is sort of my life time savings. I want to invest the money so that I may live a retired life now and my children could benefit from it in their future. I want to shift to Pakistan. So my theme is not to rent it out but to take it up as a business i.e. circulate the amount. Buy and sell and make profits. That is why I wanted to know which type of property has more chances of paying you back. This forum is a great help for people especially for getting some practical information before talking to some real property dealer.
I would not recommend you to go far agricultural land as I am already facing problems of agriculture lands plus I know revenues. I think so you should spend your 25 percent amount in residential plots and 40 percent in commercial rest 35 percent should be save with you in bank when you will get practical experience then you can decide for rest amount better.
By the way in real estate to buy a commercial plot and build a plaza on it and then sale it partially is very good revenue generating business.
Thank you very much Shah saahib! It really helped me a lot. By the way if not personal then would you like to tell me the problem you are facing with your agricultural land? Are you irrigating it or have you given it to somebody else on contract?
I would not advise to invest it all in real estate. Create a portfolio of investment but be advised economic environment is sensitive around the world. Play your cards carefully.
