The many innovations introduced by technology continue to act as a catalyst to simplify almost every aspect of life, be it personal, professional, or business. Driven by farsightedness, powered by cutting-edge tech, and an undying commitment to elevating the real estate sector in Pakistan to previously unimaginable heights, Zameen.com — Pakistan’s largest property portal — takes pride in adding the Plot Finder tool to its repertoire.
Back in 2006, we decided to address every aspect of property hunting in Pakistan and add transparency to it. During our journey, not only did we simplify the property-search process by coming to be known as the “Google” of the real estate sector in Pakistan, but we also democratised the entire process to empower buyers, sellers, and investors like never before.
Zameen.com has now launched the Plot Finder tool, a one-of-its-kind feature introduced for the first time in Pakistan. This highly advanced feature seamlessly fuses real estate, interactive mapping, and 3D technology to virtually transport property seekers to the housing society of their choice.
Allow us to give you a guided tour of this newly introduced avant-garde feature and how it’s going to make property-hunting more immersive, exciting, and convenient. But before we delve deeper, let’s first have a look at the launch event of the radical Plot Finder tool.
The Launch Event of Plot Finder
The launch of the Plot Finder tool was announced and celebrated in an event that was attended by the company’s top management, high profile figures, and representatives from some of Pakistan’s best media outlets.
The event also featured a session where the attendees were given a practical demonstration of the newly introduced feature by Ali Haroon, the Associate Director of Geomatics & Production at Zameen.com. The attendees were also briefed about the features and many benefits of the tool.

The development of Plot Finder makes the smartest use of technology. This tool will give Zameen’s users access to highly detailed maps of around 5,000 housing societies in dozens of cities nationwide. The Plot Finder tool also enables users to browse through and zoom in on over 2 million residential and commercial properties across the country, marking a new era of interactive mapping.
Features of Zameen.com’s Plot Finder Tool
Driven by advanced satellite technology and interactive mapping, Zameen’s Plot Finder tool boasts the following features:
- Near-to-accurate details on property addresses, plot numbers, locations, and areas among others
- Added facility for users to conduct searches by plot numbers
- An option for users to create their map collections
- The added functionality of switching between satellite and normal maps
- 3D imaging to help users get a better idea of the surroundings of their desired location
The 3D mapping tool will allow users to pick their choice of city among 38 cities, a particular area within it, zero-in on a phase or block to develop a better understanding about the layout of the community at street level, right down to plot numbering, street numbering, road width, amenities such as mosques, schools, parks, and hospitals to name a few. This added functionality and flexibility will eventually help users make the right decision when investing in real estate. Furthermore, it will help agents and their clients to understand the ground realities of a project better while sitting in their offices, even before visiting the actual site.

What Does Zameen.com’s Management Have to Say about the Plot Finder Tool?
Praising the newly introduced feature at the launch event, Zameen.com’s Corporate Communications Director said, “Plot Finder is all about giving our users precise virtual access to every property in Pakistan– and saving them from the complexities and time-consuming process of using traditional paper maps.”
According to Sheikh Shuja Ullah Khan, Zameen.com’s Central Region Senior Director, the Plot Finder tool will benefit both real estate agents and their clients by effectively speeding up interactions between them.
“Agents can now make map collections of their own to share with their clients. This product will not only save them time but will also be a tremendous help to their businesses in terms of closing deals,” Khan stated.
Mr. Khan further said that the digitisation of Pakistan’s property sector was the need of the hour and that Zameen.com was equipped with all the necessary ingredients needed to lead the digital disruption of the real estate industry.
Zameen.com keeps coming up with initiatives to not only make property hunting easier but also to expedite the process. Another noteworthy example in this regard is Zameen 24/7 Helpline, which was launched almost a month back.
