After many years of suffocation, at least some good news on property market front. Holding period of plot for CGT is reduced to 4 years and tax is cut down to half.



This will help real estate market come out of stagnation and boost plot trade, development and construction activity.



I have started this thread to discuss anything related to budget 2020-21 here.

    Its a pitty that such a great location of University Town is wasted. If the group was strong or if they could partner with some strong marketing firm, then I am sure they could lift it up to its true potential.

    18-ISL will get an interchange on KH that will serve to all locations nearby including G-16/G-15, G-17, 18-ISL. This will surly impact positively on Univ. Town as well.

      Timely thread:

      Needs to be seen when budgetary measures started to be executed post Jun-30. 3 factors are critical to revival of RE & Construction in the context of Economy and Pakistanis (whethere locally resident or overseas)

      -- Value of PKR post Jun-30
      -- GDP/Inflation (that unfortunately as of now is nightmare)
      -- Duration of Pandemic

          No so much to the buyers.

          It has been buyer's market up until now. With the Construction Package announced earlier and now CGT reduced, it will certainly boost market activity.

          So if the big guns decide to capitalize on this opportunity and time it with COVID lock-down ending, then by September prices can take positive trajectory.

            I think Corona is real threat to our economy.This is just start and thousands of people lost their jobs and business and due to corona overseas Pakistani's also will not able to invest. So I think hold your money. Wait and See policy...

              On wait and see, I disagree. Reason: property market had already bottomed out way before Covid crisis. Transactions in major projects were almost zero, means there was no demand from the investors side. Only those wanting to build their houses were buying.

              So it can not go down any further. The only possibility is that CGT reduction and hidden amnesty in Construction Package will give stimulus to market that can gain momentum specially when big fishes start a new game.

              Currently, it is buyer's market and buyer is the king. Means, due to low demand and low turnover you can find a plot of your choice at your price.

              For genuine buyers, I see more risk if they wait for further price decline.

                Property on ground will get upward trend with such initiatives and on the other hand reduction of interest rates, despite other factors Pakistan being such a population will always have a genuine demand towards land.

                      Muhammad Shaheer.

                      I've seen many posts discussing Lhr, Pwr, Khi, Mtan properties, but yes their proportion is very low. Perhaps they have other more active forum available, I don't know. And yes, Isl/Rwp folks are most active here.

                      We need more balanced participation, so investors from other cities should not sit quiet and make some noise here.
