Which phase is better for living in a 1-2 years time?

Constructing 1 kanal is better option or buying 1 kanal; in terms of quality and savings? How much cost could be saved if we construct new?

    I still think that DHA-2 is still better then phase 5 in next 2 years time but their are people living in phase 5. I would always recommend to build the house as per your own need. If you can hire a good company even then you will save atleast 20 to 30 lac instead of buying the house.

      Agreed with Abbasi sb

      An honestly made house can easily give 15-25 lacs profit. Variances make big difference such as wood ,tiles , fitting etc selections.
      I know one retired Major, bagged 30 lacs profit on a house in DHA2

        It totally depend on budget .A good plot in phase 2 around 225 lakhs where in 100-110 you can get a good location plot in Phase 5 .The future is destined for phase 5 . 8 KM belt on Dha expressway and direct approach to Islamabad Highway .not to forget one day after the expansion of Highway and underpass the growth will match close to phase 2. Rest Allah knows best.

          Actually phase 5 is more scenic than phase-2 proper. Development is also good. Islamabad highway is partly done on flyover and rest is hopefully done in future but now not in budget.

          Dam will be a nice picnic point in vicinity and land acquisition money already in pipeline.

            If you are looking at 2 years time then its DHA 2 but if you look at long term then DHA5 is better

              Thank you friends for valuable responses.



              If we decide DHA2, which sectors are good in terms of family living and reasonable n price? And what would be the reasonable prices? I see in sector H ranging from 160lac to 200lac for one kanal.



              I heard some years back tha some of the sectors had smell issues bcoz of neighboring poultry farms on Kahuta road side, may be.

                This poultry farm is news for me and I am living in DHA-2. Never heard of this but will inquire about.
                I can point out some problem ( if they could be defined as problems) in some areas of DHA-2:
                ...Around some plots located at boundary wall toward village side DHA-2, plots are in deep depression and surrounding neighbourhood is at height. You cannot sit in your lawn as depression is some 30 ft at your house.
                ... Although sewage treatment plant is all stainless steel imported from Malysia and totally covered but if wind direction is not favourable, you still get smell from the plant, it is not very frequent, though.
                Having all said that, DHA-2 is a success story and probably only one which has been appreciated much above all the twin town developments.
                In VIP CDA sector, F-11, old Kanal houses are selling at 5.5 to 6 crores and DHA-2, same one Kanal with similar construction has been reached 4.5 crores!
                Horse race is on and within few years, if Islamabad highway becomes signal free, DHA-2 will become on par just on quality of living, even being far away from capital.
                Regarding plot selections, it is always good to get near entrance gates as all of visitors do not have personal transport and there is no internal transport.
                A visit is must before buying.

                  Thank you Abdul Qayyum brother.



                  Which sectors/blocks are near gate 7 ( Islamabad side) and gates on GT road side and what are price ranges in them?

                    Sir GT road side blocks are A, B, C, F, H and Islamabad highway side D and J
                    However B block is some 1.5 km away from the very first gate at GT road and sector J on Islamabad highway is old commoners town where, although DHA has improved a lot after buying constructed J block from commoners town, still some shortcomings can be seen such as narrow roads, small drain lines etc.
                    But even in J block a 5 marks costs 75 lacs and hard to find.
                    Best is go to DHA property exchange in phase-1 and buy from DHA itself, you will save money.
