Pakistani rupee value is doing a nose dive and currency value has depreciated 30% compared to british pounds since 2017.

I bought 2 plots back in 2015 in bahria town. Even though the price of plots have gone up by 10% each year, the value of currency however depreciated and the investment is completely worthless.

Anyone seeing anything positive coming out of pakistan's economy in the next few years?

    Stocks and property to me are very similar... Both are long term investments and you have to hold them for years to see considerable gains. Obviously stocks are more liquid but also more volatile than property, so there is upside and downside to both. Pakistan stock market has historically performed better than real estate as an investment but over the last two decades, I believe real estate has outperformed stocks.

      Across the globe, the world invests in stocks to make the money. RE no doubt is a proven solid investment but it's not one size fit all solution. It's evident and written all over that new generation of bilionaire is entrepreneurs and stock investors not the RE enthusiasts.


      In PAK we are a generation or two slow in adopting what the world pursues. When world moved on to cryptos, we were still confused on typical 90s question: Stock or Real Estate. Yes crypto not bullet proof but it has the potential. The ultimate answer is diverse rather than putting all in one basket.

      In PAK stock market is highly volatile and manipulated and that's used to be done by none oher than former PMs like Shauket Aziz. Moroeevr we are a show-off society number of plots owned is considered as Social Boost and Status-quo and that's gonna take some generation time to shift such mindset.

      This is why world has income per capita increasing and we are unable to cope up at same level ...

        Awain The crazy Musk says



        " It's OK to have your eggs in one basket as long as you control what happens to that basket"



        & replaced the following quote of oldie Buffet with his unique ideas and performance........ :)



        “Do not put all your eggs in one basket.”

          @Ilyas bro, 70-30 rule is not for diversification, and nor entirely for rainy days. It is to create "liquidity" that allows you to have free cash available to invest on any new opportunity. If you are "chocked" with long term investments, then you will be very "rich-poor" man !

          Chinese have made artificial eggs, that look and taste like real. These eggs defy the old Buffett rule, so you can keep in the same basket.

          @Zubair bro,

          "Trigger": are any news or reasons which have profound effect on property prices. For instance, RRR on BT-Ph8, DHA-3 and proposed Kashmir Highway interchange on G15, G16, FT, Eighteen.

          "Probability": is the likelihood (in percent) of any trigger to happen. Suppose, Margalla Avenue construction has 50% probability to launch this year then you will perhaps like to take a chance to invest along MA route in hope of return. Suppose this is very low (10%), then you will surely not like to block your investment for such a low chance.

              @Ilyas bro, Warren Buffet baba ji once said

              "diversification is protection against ignorance"

              @Asad sb, I do not favour stock TRADING due to volatility as you said. However, you should consider INVESTING in high-dividend stocks for long-term. Chances of loosing are minimal. Many people believe buying and selling (trade) is the only way to earn from stocks and they overlook it's greatest potential in terms on dividend.

                  The Devaluation Discussion got to the point where an (Outspoken) Entrepreneur who is ambitious about sending humans to outer space as an inhabitant is Compared and Equalsised to an Open Fascist whose Publicly expressed Hate for Race, Colour, Religion will take time to erode.

                  Being Outspoken ≠ Being Fascist
