Real estate market in Lahore undergoes correction
Real estate market in Lahore undergoes correction


LAHORE: After reaching new highs, the real estate market of Lahore has remained stagnant for the last couple of months. It is now going through a correction phase, tweaking down the prices by up to Rs2.5 million for plots in Defence Housing Authority (DHA).

Since DHA properties are the engine of the real estate sector in Lahore, changes in prices there affects prices in other areas too. Investors were waiting for this correction, terming it a positive sign for the real estate market.

Though the stagnation period is taking longer than expected, with minor fluctuations in between, experts are confident of a sharp recovery once the land deals, which have been stalled midway, are settled.
Property prices, primarily in phase six and seven, have already been slashed by up to Rs1.5 million on average, though the correction roughly ranges between 10-17% depending on the prices in different phases.

Property prices in phase six, for instance, were around Rs18.5 million at their peak, whereas phase seven saw prices as high as Rs13 million.

In areas where property prices are low, like phase nine where prices are below Rs5 million, will be connected to the main city through infrastructure investments, and investors are hopeful for a sharp increase in such areas.

The prices of real estate in other popular societies, like Bahria Town and Johar Town, are also stagnant, and are expected to gain momentum once DHA clears stalled property deals, reviving the process.

The depreciation of the rupee against the dollar has also contributed towards a boom in the market. Owing to the resultant drop in costs, foreign investors have also purchased property in Pakistan, though their share in the total is still small.

“If a foreign investor is investing in Pakistani market, after exchanging the currency let’s suppose at Rs100 per dollar, and making a profit and clearing the transaction he will want to buy back the dollars at the same rate,” said Ramzan Sheikh, Chairman of Mainland Husnain Limited, a construction company, while talking to The Express Tribune.
