Strange but nice comment and Kamran. I am impressed your analysis is very good but let me clear some figures roots Frobel are near from G-15 as compared to Bahria Town as they are on main Peshawar road.
Quiad-e-Azam hospital which is now better than Shifa hospital is just 3 km away from G-15 and F-15 and definitely I agree quality living is Bahria G-15 or F-15 even any of CDA sector except E-7. There is a security plan in G-15 and that is better then CDA sectors but not like Bahria Town.
This is a fact that G-9 G-10 these sectors are best option for any one if your budget allows you.
You are requested to visit the locations by your own as per your requirements and don't trust on any dealer. Let me tell you one secret all dealers try to cheat people by requesting 100,000 above the real price of the plot other than his commission. Good dealer is defined as who keep at least minimum 50k. :-) (Sorry to dealers).
They'll ask you not to contact any other dealer as it may inflate the market price, totally bullshit. I suggest you to contact as many dealers as you can to get maximum less price but with different names as they contacted each other also, hehe. :-)
Following are some analysis, I think it may help you making decision.
G-14, E-12, I-15 = Forget about the development
G-15 = Good society but there are many butts involved. Main flaw of the sector is its not properly gated. Main electricity transmission line passing in between the residential area.
F-15 = Good for investment but only the area acquired by the society. you can check while your visit. they are making roads on suggested area
F-16 = Long long term investment (Although i also invested in 2005)
G-16 = No management, no proper society and even Phada with village people.
F-17 = Good to live in next 2 years as its proper gated one, under ground electricity and Gas.
B-17 = Far far away (although I also invested)
E-17/16 = Visit by your own and check.
PECHS = Visit and check by your own, don't want to say anything
Bahria Enclave = Good but let it come down, I guess it may drop up to 40% and the buy it
it also depends upon you requirement like Hospitals, schools, security i made following analysis
G-9/G-8 = go for 7 marla house
Bahria phase III = 10 Marla house
PWD = 14 marla plot
I believe living in Islamabad zone 1 in such a law and order situation is no lesser than a risk. The choice is your you need your families safety a peaceful living or a property which can return you many folds when you sale it. The choice is yours. I am currently living in a newly developing sector of Islamabad but believe me its all pain. You are never stress free in office. Always a fear of unknown. I am no planning to move to DHA Phase - II as family is more important then a mere multi million rupees that a person can earn anytime. :) Choice is your family or money.
Especially in G Sector of Islamabad its worse. A middle class person can only afford a house that too with a lot of difficulty in these sectors only. There was a day light robbery at gun point. Police was given all the evidence CCTV footage etc. but what was the result none. :( Will be moving in the next couple of weeks to DHA - II
Yes there are issues in CDA sectors not only in CDA sectors but in whole Pakistan but not like that I am living in CDA sectors from last 28 years thanks to Almighty Allah that I have never faced anything.
