The economy has started to improve. The private sector credit from banks has gone up by over 200% against same period last year. Rupee has become stronger. Will this not divert money from real estate sector to businesses and thus result in further decrease in real estate prices. Then people who have actual need of plots/houses will be left.

    Thats what i was trying to mention earlier... That buying power of overseas (a large considerate portion of pakistan realestate investors) has been effected due to sudden downing of dollar.... So the effect would be inevitable....



    How much impact of this impact will be.... Will it be a slow halt of growth or decrease in rates .... This will depends on further next 2 to 3 months situation!

      Well this is a very long debate... To cut short its not that easy and quick to achieve in case of pakistan... To gain common public's trust in investing their savings elsewhere other than real estate is a very tough thing to ask... And if it will happen it will be a gradual and slower process and it will be correlated to a number of other factors as well .... And that requires revolutionary improvements...



      So i dont think so it will make any quick impact on real estate prices in the coming time...

        Thanks Shoaib, It will surely impact slowly but the other side is that the real estate may not attract that fast and big investment as it was in the previous periods.

          No. With the improvement of economy or security situation (as you are hoping or foreseeing) will attract investments for everything including real estate development as well...



          or you can put this in that way that realestate will grow in parallel with the growing economy.



          with the rise of economical activity & industrial growth and living standards in any society, realestate values propotionally rise in urban centers and suburban areas .... This is a common principle.



          A lot of examples are there.... Duabai as an example.

            The investors who inflated real estate prices too much in a very short time will find better avenues to invest in the economy. Further the economy does not increase at 100% in 6 months like many real estate prices were increasing. If the investors turn towards economy then we may see a fall in prices from low to medium drop depending on kind of society and then rise gradually with the economy.

              Well... You can't predict this in case of pakistan ... Anything can happen their. :)



              and finally if those shrewd investor are getting 100% by doing nothing ( i mean by getting hands on and off on files of some societies only) then why would they in large numbers turn towards some kind of nascent and risky businessess...



              This thing only time will tell.

                But generally i think it should be the case... If people with wealth in our country could do productive work... Then it will be collectively much more beneficial for our economy than burying money in property...



                This is again mainly duty of authorities to pave suitable pitch for the rich to encourage them for true revenue generating activities.

                  Files of many societies that were bought for own of around 6 lakh - 1 million have turned into a piece of junk paper.



                  The investors created hype, made money and ran away at appropriate time. Now those who purchased at peak of dealer created hype are the losers.



                  Only those societies are progressing where there's real construction going on. And the situation is expected to remain same in the near future.



                  And yes, the current govt. Has the reputation of being business friendly. And industries which were closed during previous regimes are back on their feet again. So expect more investments in business and further downfall (nose dive in some cases) in real estate.

                    There is another thougt.



                    If the economy grow. The common man can become prosperous. More people will think to buy or built their homes. More demand of living units can increase the prices.



                    So we can say that a good trend in economy can bring good trend in real estate as well.

                      Usman Bhai,



                      1. Mian Brothers always take panga with Army and we can see that nowadays.



                      2. Kargil II might happen in case of negotiations etc



                      3. PMLN seems business friendly but trust me, they ruin economy.



                      4. It is not necessary that this govt will complete 5 years, I dont think so as lawyers/media will soon turn its guns against the govt.



                      So sit back and watch. Real Estate is going no where.
