    Buying a Flat in Malir Cantt

    Considered as one of the safest areas in Karachi, Malir Cantt is situated alongside Gulshan-e-Iqbal and Jinnah International Airport. Before the Pakistan Army took over the area in 1947, the area was overseen by the British Army.

    The population count of Malir Cantonment, according to the 2017 Census of Pakistan, is 139,052. Compared to other posh localities of Karachi, like Defence Housing Authority and Clifton, Cantt is a well-planned area. This is one of the several reasons why the real estate market of Malir Cantonment is not only booming but also has — really — expensive homes and commercial property available for both buyers and investors.

    Types of Flats in Malir Cantt

    Flats in Malir Cantt are mostly located in Askari 5. Apartment complexes here were built only a few years ago, so the condition of the flats is fairly good. In high rise complexes, the average number of floors is 9. However, an elevator has been provided in all of these buildings for the convenience of residents. The flats are spacious and airy and have modern fittings. 3-bedroom flats in Malir Cantt are more common than 2-bedroom units. Apart from these two options, many buyers tend to go for 4-bedroom apartments in the area.

The sale price of 2-bedroom apartments usually ranges from PKR 60 lakh to PKR 2.5 crore. 3-bedroom flats can cost anywhere between PKR 2 crore and 3 crore. Apart from this, flats with 4-bedrooms have a price range of PKR 2.2 crore to PKR 3.5 crore.
