      It depends what experience and expertise do you have ?



      You can start of with buying some flats, houses, and renting them for regular income and with the remaining capital, you can do some sort of business or rolling/buying/selling of plots.

        Shezad - I have plot in DHA, will be buying some more later this year.



        Nasir - I have offices in building soon will go on rent.



        What i am referring to business as more of producing product or services, not trading of real estate.

              Waqas - Thank you for the link, I have checked few of the feasibility, but numbers doesn't make sense. For example, at http://furniturepakistan.org.pk/raw-material-shop-business-plan/



              There is a summary that on investment of 1 crore + yourself, return is 7 lac rupees a year. You can these days invest 1 crore and get back 10% - 12% (10 - 12% lac) just in rental, then what is the point of business.

                  Brother whatever you do, just try to make an investment portfolio and diversify your investment profile.

                  As per the niche of business is concerned, you should pursue the one that interests you and in which you have a previous experience. In the beginning, you should think about your organic growth, but you can also get inorganic after getting stable.

                  Lastly, once again, please pursue the business that interests you.

                  May ALLAH bless us all in this world and hereafter. Aameen.

                    Imran - I rental investment is in commercial not in residential and i estimate it usually to return 10% per annum.

                    As Zain suggested as well, few properties in rent is just for the reason to keep portfolio diverse.



                    Zain - My experience is in west not in Pakistan, so same business wouldn't work in Lahore. Also My interest (which is IT) might or might not bring me return on my work or money. This is the reason this discussion was created with the mind that what kind of business can be done in Lahore in 3-4 Crore and what return should one expect.

                      Business Tip:

                      - Buy 2 kanals in any suitable and relatively new area of Lahore;

                      - Go to The Educators website and contact them for affiliation; Meet them and discuss how to construct on your land.

                      - On one kanal, build Villa in a smart way so that it can be used as a school (don't go for purpose build campus because then you cannot sell or change your business).

                      - Leave one kanal for lawn;

                      - Poach a Beacon House Headmistress or Student Counselor to act as Principal; then hire most teachers from fresh graduates with Good English skills from PU, Kinnaird, GC etc.

                      - In evening, start IT classes for certification courses;

                      Then start minting money and when you have made millions from middle class working parents, then try to duplicate this model by going for another similar project inshaAllah.

                      If you like my post, you can mark it as the best answer. In any case best of luck and Allah bless you.
