    Doing business in pakistan is not easy in general and property business is quite tricky in particular. However lots of people are making good money in this business.

    I suggest to work some time with and existing big dealer to learn the ropes and then start your own business.



    Best of luck!

      I have a same question especially for someone moving back from overseas. Also approx. How much capital is required to start property business in Lahore? Do you need to have a lot of experience to start property business?

        Don't think of making investments straightaway if you haven't got a clue about market trend and prices, your best bet is to first join some office as brother KS mentioned and smartly and keenly understand market trends, prices,paper work (very important), your target area in which you want to do dealing and investment and most importantly master the skill of negotiation as without this you won't become a successful dealer. Loads of other things are their but these are just very basics.

          Thanks a lot Danish! One more Q..if you join an office do you need to have capital? Can you join an office without any capital and how does it work? do you work on commission basis? Thanks once again!

            Big offices work on commission basis like 60/40 depending on the capabilities of the agent; but i think since you dont have experience dont expect much at the beginning your target should be do get the expertise in the relevant areas.

            As Danish rightly mentioned negotiation skills are the key to success in this field.

                Try to Go through all the threads of zameen.com on investments. Observe bahria and dha market trends from start ie how they play the game. 1)when the buyers are interested to buy or hold? and why suddenly they get panic to dispose off.. This is the essence of property dealing..

                  I am very thankful to all of you for the valuable suggestions. If i conclude it in a short summary i can say that " Work with some one at the initial stage,not focus on income, should be very sharp in communication,study the market trend,the investors etc etc .



                  I think that zameen.com is the good place to study the market trend.



                  Regards.

                    Property business has huge scope in Pakistan. You should contact some property dealers and take their advice as well. Don't only rely on internet research but also go to different places physically and search out rate. When any dealer is going to make a transaction, go with him and see how he's making the deal done.

                      If you are starting business than its better to go for stable, safe and less risky areas esp. CDA and DHA. Basically it will be a good learning platform and also to avoid fraudulent dealings happening in most private societies.

                      try to gain prominence in one market like in DHA or CDA. As you are new so it will be very difficult to gain market share for all or most societies in isb/pindi for instance.

                      Look for areas which have good growth prospects in terms of price appreciation and construction. That should be the place to hit. Though the market maybe slow there but you should look towards the long term and with long term objectives.

                      In which ever area you wish to start with try to make good relations with the strong dealers or network there. Regardless of whether you like it or not but this will help you the most in many of your deals. Help them in some way so next time you can expect help from them as well.

                      And last be straightforward. This business is not for looneys. If you are not persistent or aggressive in your work or deals then there is no point entering. Also regarding decisions make them quick and do not take too much time thinking on a decision. You will loose many opportunities.

                      once you think this business is for you then you may expand and look for risky areas
