How to precede when you live abroad (Europe), and want to sell a house that you have in Pakistan? Can overseas Pakistanis get any help/assistance from good, authorized people? Any real estate agents in Pakistan that specialize in selling property/assistance for selling property? And where to contact such trustworthy/reliable people?

    Hi Sara,

    This is a very common problem faced by overseas Pakistanis. There are dozens of reputable organizations operating in Pakistan, both on and off Zameen.com (I myself am an agent, by the way) but I still reckon the best way to go about selling your property when you per se are not in Pakistan is to go via one of your relatives (brothers, cousins, uncles).

    But I suppose you must too have contemplated the possibility of going through the said route and posted on the forum only because it was not a possibility for you (my assumption). I might be able to recommend someone if you could please tell me where exactly the property in question is (Lahore, Karachi, Islamabad)?

      Hello!

      You are right about my reason for posting on this forum; I do not have any (reliable!) relatives in Pakistan. Therefore I would like to do it myself, through a reliable agent.

      The house is in Gujrat. :)

      Thank you for any help!

        If you got no relative then perhaps money proves to be more reliable than people, specifically in Pakistan. Get a good Lawyer for your property transaction and get your work done the right way. Don't believe too much on real estate agents as they always try to benefit themselves more than anything. Best is that you act quickly because people are in a habit of forging fake papers and selling the property of overseas citizens especially if the house is old and abandoned.
        Good Luck!

          It depends upon where the house is?

            As Bhatti saab has mentioned, until we know where the house is, then we can possibly advise as each have their own regulations that must be followed. Islamabad is more easier for overseas buyers to purchase real estate whereas others you must abide by certain procedures.

                  Hi Sara,

                  Thank you for the information. I know someone who might be able to help. He primarily deals in Lahore property but let me talk to him and see if he can pull any strings in Gujrat. In any case, I will keep you posted and share his contact information once I have his consent.

                    Come and meet local property dealer and people there. Ask which was last house sold to get an idea, come, sell and go, if you are rich enough give me as gift, you have to go embassy to provide NOC to your relative that you agree and he will sale this, even a lawyer can help, gift me at least you will not end up as fool or cheated, or come yourself even you do not have a relative here, and it is pretty much same ... Patwaris are same as before and in cooperative societies there are very wise person who can deliver best and cheat best too.

                    Hope you are wise and I'm from near Gujrat, you can message me to have an idea about your property value, it must be an old home. Ba-bye.
