Buying a House in Karachi

Karachi is the largest metropolitan and cosmopolitan city of Pakistan and the capital of Sindh province. Situated along the coastline of the Arabian Sea, it is Pakistan’s financial, trade and industrial centre. It is divided into six districts, i.e. Central Karachi, East Karachi, South Karachi, West Karachi, Korangi and Malir. The population of Karachi is not homogenous but it’s a blend of multiple cultures and ethnicities. A lot of refugees from other parts of the country, even the world, have migrated and settled here. Karachi hosts the largest number of non-Muslim communities than any other city of Pakistan.

Property in Karachi is in high demand due to a number of facts. The city is home to a number of multi-national companies and industries, a booming trade sector and multi-linguistic population. Karachi’s real estate is multifaceted, as it gives a variety of convenient options for buying a house than any other city in the country. A majority of Karachi’s population prefers flats to houses, as the former are more economical than the latter. However, for those who wish to own a bigger space, the city’s real estate has a wide variety of houses for sale. So, you have quite a lot of options to choose from when looking for the property that best suits your needs. However, buying or renting a house, especially, in Karachi is not a simple task because of the — sometimes extraordinarily — high prices.

Types of Houses in Karachi

The population of Karachi has increased dramatically over the years. Consequently, a wide range of residential communities also emerged to meet the needs of the ever-increasing population. A number of gated communities and individual housing schemes have helped millions of people to buy a house in Karachi. Areas like DHA, Bahria Town, DHA City, Clifton, Zamzama, etc., list among the posh localities of the city where the property is quite expensive. Meanwhile,  Gulistan-e-Johar, Gulshan, PECHS, Bahadurabad, etc., are the localities where one can find houses that are relatively affordable. Moreover, there are also towns built on the outskirts of the city like Gulshan-e-Maymar, Gulshan-e-Hadeed, Saadi Town, etc. The ideal size of homes to buy in any of these areas is 120-sq.yd, 250-sq.yd, 500-sq.yd and 1000-sq.yd. You can explore other options as well but these are the standard sizes found in Karachi’s property market.

Most of the new houses have contemporary European architectural design. But the buyer, of course, always has the option of customizing their home. Houses can be single or double-storey or can be built up to four floors if the area allows it. Most houses are double-storey, as renting out one portion and residing in the other is a  very common practice in Karachi.
