        Friends be careful, Estate and property is stuck so they will always show us good picture. There will be a major blow to Real state sector in coming few months. I have personal friends, who are trying to sell their properties so that they can invest in Australia and Dubai.

        Again, i will say keep your liquid money and dont invest in Real sector

          There is an alternative estimation too, btw. Which says that the property market will not be as affected as it is being expected. Sure, the volume of transactions will go down for another year or two but considering the inflation and the fall in value of rupee, the prices will not be affected that much until eventually the market activity is restored in the meantime.

          So, yes, while we can expect any real estate investment to be not as liquid as before. At the end of the day, for medium to long term investment, it should be okay.

            From a technical perspective, market of part of it will not properly recover/grow unless:

            - USD-PKR parity stabilises (particular for overseas factor).

            - Inflation decrease (ideally, under current circumstances to 3.5, resident pakistanis).

            - Valuation rates are consistent and not exploitative (in some cases they are purely inflated).

            Generally, its the feel-good factor that needs to be created. When you subsidise the Stock Market and then add layers of taxes on Real Estate, its not going to work.

            Having said so, market at its slowest since Aug 2014, geniune buyers or ones with longer holding power can benefit best to buy. On the flip side, quick rotation or frequent trading not seems ideal for now.

              The one real problem may be that feel-good factor you mentioned and the fact that the government has done almost zilch to help the construction sector -- something that, I feel, is critical for the future of real estate.

              The remaining factors should correct themselves with time. I personally agree with the people predicting that inflation and rupee free-fall will stop at some point in the mid-term. And I feel it will take around a year or two.

              If we are being honest about it, some of these changes were actually needed for structural reform of the economy and previous governments were just too scared or politically weak to try implementing them. Just look at all the flak PTI government is taking because of it. They did it at the right time, when they still hold some political capital.

                Govt is doing good steps but no homework behind and not being systematic in implementation.
                When you want to do good things in no time and change all in no time, you are likely to end up with failure.
                Whatever govt is doing, it is the voice of common man on all decisions but there must be mental exercise before commencing a big change in the existing currupt system which has been perpetually made perfect in the interest of the elite class.
                Be it tax, property or any other facet of life. There seems less planning.
                Property under new laws is totally a different mode of investment now and needs at least 5 years for any profit projection.
                Now not any property will rise, selection now more important than it was before!
                Before any new launch and neeli, peeli, blue colourful presentation on ADs was hot for investment and smart ones used to buy and sell immediately on files before the juice got dry. Now good performing societies which are developed already and have good reputation and have RECORD of good upkeep will appreciate and keeping appreciating.
                Big investors are out and will not return back in near future.
                Only genuine buyers are buying.

                  PKR is on a free-float exchange, only point where it gets strengthened is when the economy starts to strengthen. No other miracles.

                  To whom to listen to, Asad Umer as Finance minister who was convincing nation that going to IMF was the way to go. Now Asad Umer as out of office MNA says other options were also available and perhaps better.

                  Don't wanna add political twist but two IMF men at SBP & Fin Ministry, that point where PKR even shows some resistance is way far sighted.

                    Best returns in the next two years will most likely come from holding capital in bank or in gold. Things will get worse before they get better.

                      @Imtiaz, if decrease in inflation is your predictor for property market recovery then we are far from home. Inflation has hit double digit in July and still going up. Mubarik ho.

                      With recent petrol price increase, this will cross the level of Zardaris in August.
