In real estate market, 2019 is considered as a worse year for Pakistan property. As we know that buyers or investors are always seeking for the best time to invest so maybe 2020 is going to be a perfect year for them to invest in market. Though sellers want to know about their properties to be sold out and would look attractive towards the buyers or investors. As you know that this market is beneficial for business purpose, like construction etcetera, so basically 2020 will turn out to be advantageous for suppliers and purchasers as well. Investing in the properties don’t supply shelter for living, anyhow, it looks like a best resource for saving money for one’s future.
What Buyers and Sellers are supposed to do?
As we have already mentioned about 2019 that it has been the worst year for both buyers and sellers. However, sellers are not in good condition as compared to buyers because a seller has only two options, first; they should wait for the price to get high again. Second; sell their property at a low prices to ignore bigger losses. On the other hand, buyers and investors are supposed to get knowledge about the market of earlier 5-10 years. However, 2003-6 and 2013 were the best years for buyers, yet 2007 till 2009 and now 2019 were the worst years.
Recent Trends of Realty Estate Pakistan:
- Condition of agents:
Due to the fall of real estate market, agents were badly effected and we got to know through current news that about 40-45% of them have already left because of low income. So condition looks worse due to the fact that they have confronted great loss and severe crisis.
- Capacity of property undertaking:
Recently, transactions found to be lowest as compared to 2015-16. In 2016 transactions and data file transmissions were recorded 180-200 on daily basis in DHA Lahore but in 2019 it turned out to be 10-20. Lower amount of undertaking is directly proportional to low investments in real estate so apparently this equation leads to a price decline. As capacity of property dealings is an exemplary indicator of the conditions of market.
- Transfer of market to buyers from investors:
Pakistan property has changed to genuine buyers from investors, buyers who now only buy properties to live in. The transfer has now ended and price too have cooled down. But before this, Pakistan property on daily basis used to market shares and stocks.

Before buying or selling any property, you survey different categories like apartments, houses, industrial, residential or commercial area and invest wherever or whatever you want but we advise you to look after every possible complication that would refrain you from misleading by the real estate which has no value. It is solely way better to invest in less popular area as prices are going to increase in future as predicted. Try to be real estate investor not a risk-taker, therefore, do not buy illegal properties just for the sake of investing less money because somehow, you are going to fulfil its requirements if caught red-handed.
