But like Bahria Sports City Villa (which faced a downfall a year ago) these projects will be in much demand once they are developed. Therefore, it is important for us to know the details of each and every one of them.
Comparing it to other sub-projects of Bahria Town Karachi, Ali Block doesn’t seem to have much potential. The booking price was 30 lacs with 2-year installment plan but old bookings of same plot sizes were launched at 17.25 lac rupees. It is based on the 5 marla plots in one of the precincts. Early possession has been promised to the investors which could be somewhat beneficial but overall you can have better options than that.
If you are looking for an affordable investment opportunity in Bahria Town, Bahria Heights is something for you to consider. These apartments came with 3-year installment plan and it is launched almost recently. The apartment includes 2 bedrooms with 950 sq ft. The booking of Bahria heights actually started from 18 lack rupees which afterward became profitable as it raised up to 50 lacs once as well. These apartments come with 2 bedrooms with independently attached bathrooms and dressing rooms. Accommodation also includes a living room, kitchen, store and balcony in these apartments.
If you want something else than the mainstream projects like Bahria Sports City, Quaid Villa can be the option for you. It has the same value and standard as any Bahria Town’s project has. In the bulk of real estate options of investment, Quaid villas in Bahria town Karachi often stays un-noticed despite their potential to generate profit. Located in Precinct 2, they are 8 Marla homes with attractive location and quality construction. These homes were launched at 75 lac rupees with 2-year installment plan and have high demand in the market especially due to location. The villas are usually short in the market as they are highly wanted but if you get a chance to make an investment in Quaid Villa, consider yourself lucky!
Midway Commercial plots are ideally located right next to International Theme Park just along Precinct 4, Precinct 6 and Precinct 9. There are two blocks of Midway commercial namely Block A and Block B. Block A start after the Theme Park whereas Block B starts after the Headoffice of Bahria Town Karachi.Commercial plots have mostly higher prices they are much favorable for investors. The balloting for midway commercial plots have been done in fact, most of them are handed over as well. Note that your short-term investment plan might not be suitable for such an option as the commercial plots are guaranteed to be profitable but only when the project is fully developed. Other normal location plots are selling at 70+ lacs profit which is quite high in such a short period. However, there is still much more room for growth in Midway.
Bahria Golf City
Bahria Paradise booking has been done but Bahria Golf City is now available for booking. Bahria Golf City has many variations in plot prices depending on plot location. The major attraction here is the golf course, and a golf-loving buyer will pay you good money if you own something facing the golf course. So, golf facing plots are the first priority. Alternatively, you can consider some category plots near golf course area or entrance area. But considering the fact that golf culture is not much popular in Pakistan it might not be the first priority.
Old Booking Projects
Projects under old booking are much more favorable as they were started at a much reasonable price. Also, most of them are fully developed and have gone through many profitable conversions. Therefore, many of the genuine buyers prefer to buy properties which are included in old booking section. If you have a choice to choose something from these properties, the best options are either 1 Kanal or 2 Kanal residential plots which are currently available at very reasonable prices. Since prices have dropped badly, these options must be picked up as the intrinsic value of these properties is still the same. Take a look at the detailed analysis of some of these projects.
Old Commercial Plots
Commercial plots under new bookings might have a place for growth but old commercial plots are definitely highly profitable. Commercial sector in Karachi has high expectations from this venture and that is why have invested much in them. Currently, its prices are down but we know for sure that this commercial plot can go up to more than double of the current price after some developments. And as a general rule, commercials are always expensive and always have a higher return, normally it is up to 1:5 when compared with that of residential plots. Therefore, if you wish to make a move in commercial plots investment this is the perfect chance for you!
