          Ilyas Bhai,

          I can see you have good experience in commercial plots, can you advise which one from below mentioned you recomend for good rental income and appreciation in future, with reason.

          Phase 8 Hub commercial - what about if head office moved to block A as expected, will it drop down.

          Phase 8 Business District commercial - on installment of 3 years.

          Phase 8 Sector E commercial.

          Overseas 5 commercial

          Mumtaz or Top City aunties.



          Any thing else in simialr range to above mentioned if you think are more better and i missed above.



          Many Thanks in advance

                Sohail Khana roora , I have already two commercial units in Hub commercial phase 8..... The rates are too low now days.... rates have dropped too much as compared to 2013..... You can build plaza and rent it out easily..... i still want to buy two more plots if i have money....... you can enjoy the rent immediately and future appreciation will depend Rawalpindi Ring Road.......... In Hayatabad 5 marla residential plot is for 1 caror and Normal average commercial plot in hub commercial is for 1 caror..... as per my belief The head office shifting will do no damage to hub commercial as the market is getting matured there......

                ( 800 $ shoes was displayed in a beautiful shelf and EVERYBODY was running to buy it...... AFTER FEW DAYS, the price of the SAME shoes was decreased to 50 $ and was displayed in the same shelf....... VERY FEWS were coming to buy it).................

                Business District is not bad and she is neighbor to Hub commercial but i do not know the prices there to compare it.............


                Sector E: she is very good but you can not rent it out immediately and she is purely connected to RRR..... and She got beautiful location in phase 8 main road..........


                I do not know about overseas........

                Mumtaz aunty would be better as she got ground plus four 5 marla commercials........

                B 17 sector E or F as proposed by Nadeem sahib

                You need to visit all these places yourself and try to get good located plot in commercial......

                  Is 1.6 crore for a 1125 sqft or 5 marla fair price?



                  Hub Commercial, Bahria Town Phase 8 - Safari Valley



                  It is 2nd to Blvd & Corner.



                  Please advise.



                  Also what are the average rents of these units?

                    B-17 Block E 40x65 commercial is for 3.35 crores. Not many people are living in E block. F block is about same price and again no one living there I wonder what would one do with it after building it as no one will come to rent it.



                    Excuse my short sightness, never invested in commercials before

                      I told before and I am repeating my own experience. Phase-8 Overseas-5 is speaking up loud!
                      We are constructing a commercial in overseas-5. Up till now no activity onsite as BT's long official steps: Possession, drawing submission, structural engineer's drawing, then Architect fonda…..balh blah ...then construction work.
                      But the whole plaza is fully booked already.
                      Come in phase-8 commercials inside populated clusters, you will never lose. Just take your time and drive all the way up to sector P in BT Pindi, you will see another city inside the city....phase-8 is very very big, sir and people are constructing like crazy... that's where commercial's fate is only shining as phae-8 is developing not squarely but from everywhere.
                      Sir, after a long and tiring research, we came to know that if commercials are built in populated areas of a nice townships, gains are much better than overseas investments.
                      Not only commercials, for example, now a one Kanal plot in block P is around 50 lacs: Think of its price after RRR? 1 crore, I would say!
                      Allah Knows Best
