    Rupee looks good and stable. If peace talks go successful and economic initiatives materialize with similar stock performance and private sector borrowing, Pakistan will flourish inshaAllah with a strong rupee and sustainED property value

      Long term impact of a strong Rupee will be positive on all sectors of the economy in Pakistan inshaAllah including real estate.

      In the short term, a strong rupee means that real estate will be slow to rise. People will not rush to invest their saving in real estate or in dollars. So there will be less panic buying followed by roller coaster snowball effect. However, demographic factors such as urban migration and population growth will ensure that the real estate sector stays a very important avenue for investment and decent returns.

      In any case, the scary aspect is spiral decline of the rupee. The strengthening of the rupee is good for you if you have invested in any sector of the Pakistani economy including especially real estate. A continuously sliding rupee can damage the social economy to such an extent that the true value of real estate will also be eroded.

          Thanks for your comments PK1. I would further ask that whats the general perception about "Is this strengthning of Pak rupee is expected to be a permanent thing or just a temporary rise as usual" ?...



          a. Moreover what you will suggest from an overseas point of view... That what should be our move for the coming years esp. The next 1 year..



          b. If it is beneficial for now to invest in pakistan realestate sector for long and medium terms... Then what are the appropriate options (keeping in view the current situation in pakistan) in Lahore/Islamabad ?

            Dear Shoaib,

            This is a v good time to buy.

            Prices are low and chances of futre are positive.

            When rupee is rising, the value of your investment as overseas Pakistani is rising because even if you sell for same price, you will get more to convert in foreign currency.

            Make a decision on yoour budget.

            B-17 (blocks A, B and C) are good because prices there have come down now after big increase 2013. Will increase again.

            Big plus for B17 Margalah Ave project which already started. This government wil complete inshallah. Development standard of b17 are very good CDA approved sector.

                Lolz.. I have a feeling that B17 is again coming in the good books.. In the past few days people were talking as if B17 is completely destroyed or flop etc.

                    Junaid, as Baloch has said, it is the Margalla Avenue factor.

                    This Project is now at a stage where it cannot be abandoned. It is almost complete with a few patches remaining.

                    As soon as it is completed, B-17 gets very close to Zone 1. And quality of development is better than D-12 (which is the closest Zone1 sector).

                    So if you look at the current price difference between D-12 and B-17 (it is at least 2-3 crore price difference on a kanal plot), this price difference is not sustainable after Margalla Avenue. The price gap will have to become narrow.

                    Simple maths will show how much juice B-17 will get because of Margalla Avenue!
