Present Market Condition
Real estate market in DHA Lahore has been stable in July and August besides the elections in July as predicted. The newly elected Government has added confidence to the majority of Expats who support PTI and will be one of the major factors to consider in future analysis. Overall investors are looking at things optimistically and are expecting positive trends in the realty market in days to come. We did give out a shout to buy Phase 8, 4 Marla files in Ex Park View when they went below 220 Lacs and just after elections they are back up and above 240 Lacs now, I personally invested in these files an year or so ago and ever since than the prices have touched 260 to 270 lacs only to go back to 240 Lacs again. Some times real estate can be a game of patience and I still believe them to be a good buy in long term as you will not be able to secure a commercial in DHA Lahore main phases at this price after these files are sold out.
In general public opinion remains optimistic for Phase 9 Prism as well, where we see that major activity is being carried out both by traders and genuine buyers.
In addition one more place I would like you to consider for investment in coming months is Phase 8 Z Ivy Green.
Lets have a look at each sector of DHA Lahore one by one:
DHA Phase 1 to 5
Goldcrest DHA Lahore Mall and Residency project is being developed faster than expectations. Al Fatah super store has already started renovating their store on ground and lower ground floor and you can watch all the latest update in the latest development video below. All 1 bed and 2 bed apartments are sold out now and are only available on premium of 2 to 3 Million. However some units of bigger size of 1600 sqft are still available at launch prices and some of them offer great investment returns as well so my suggestion is not to wait any longer and jump on the band wagon now.
As for the remaining areas they remain stable and nothing much to report.
DHA Phase 6
Same as last month
DHA Lahore Phase 6 remains stable as usual and continues to grow slowly. The MB plot prices on the main road are on the higher side with a demand of 110 Million to 120 Million and are stable for now. The last plot sold on the main road was for 105 Million. Phase 6 is an ideal phase if you are looking for rental returns, homes and business along with capital growth in both residential and commercial sector.
E block ext possession is expected in a couple of months and may provide a window for short term trades.
a. Buy residential plots in DHA Lahore phase 6 for safe investment as it will continue to grow steadily over the years.
b. Good opportunity to buy commercial on Main MB in front of N and L Blocks of Phase 6 and P block of Phase 7.
DHA Phase 7
DHA Lahore Phase 7 are now stable and no further downside is expected now. 4 Marla commercial file is at its lowest in years and may be a good short term trade.
5 Marla residential files are a good opportunity as well to buy under 35 Lacs.
a. Phase 7 is not really the best investment option but is most suitable if you have limited budget to construct a house. Now it is making some sense to invest in Phase 7 at lower prices, specially if you plan to hold it for a year or more.
c. Buying 5 Marla file between 34 to 36 Lacs is a good investment if you are looking for small investment opportunities.
DHA Phase 8
Phase 8 is is now seeing interest from potential builders who are eyeing it for there next construction project in 2019 and beyond. Phase 8 offers a steady growth in years to come.
Broadway commercial One of the best commercial investments you can make today, watch the video below to understand residential and commercial investments in Phase 8 of DHA Lahore.
Ex Park view of Phase 8 is a great option for genuine buyers and the prices are still my favorite for a 2 Kanal plot. Reasonably good plot is available in almost 400 lacs and i believe it is the best area in entire DHA Lahore to buy a 2 Kanal plot in this price.
4 Marla commercial files of Ex Park View The prices actually went below 220 Lacs and we did gave a signal for a short term trade in June, however now the prices are back to 240 Lacs and above. It is still a buy for me as I believe that it holds great potential in long term.
Z Ivy green as suggested in July is going to improve in coming months, this may be the right time to start investing.
a. We strongly recommend to buy residential plots for investment or if you wish to make your own house.
b. Buy 4 Marla Shivpur or Malikpur files in Phase 8 Ex Park View anywhere between 220 to 250 Lacs.
c. We will now recommend you to buy 4 Marla commercial between 400 to 500 Lacs and 8 Marla between 750 to 950 Lacs in good areas of Broadway.
d. Last but not the least Z ivy green is ripe for investments.
DHA Phase 9 Town
Same as in July
9 Town is on all time high and time to sell for those who invested in short term. It may give 5 to 15% more in an year but i will not consider it as a great investment at these prices. Best is to buy plots with a price tag of 6 Million for max returns.
a. Prices may rise higher but presently they offer optimum returns since i gave a signal to buy 7 months back and if you have purchased since Oct 2017 now i will recommend selling out and exiting safely with max profits if the only purpose of your investment was to make money. Those of you who have purchased at higher prices , you may wait for a few more months before an exit.
DHA Phase 9 Prism
No change from July 2018
9 prism is a good investment for long term perspective only as the prices have risen again by 5 to 10% , i would wait a bit for prices to go down again to buy.
Commercial prices on the other hand are high in 9 Prism and are totally inflated, even if they don’t go down much they are not expected to rise as well so will be a dead investment for a few years.
a. Hold it for long term or sell during an upswing.
b. Buying is recommended at this time for long term investment only.
DHA Phase 10
No change from July 2018
Trading again between 52 to 55 Lacs and not at all a buy zone for us. Predicting about Phase 10 may be hard at this time however it is a good investment at 45 Lacs and below.
a. It is better to wait now for prices to slip and make a short term trade, if it reaches 45 Lacs.
DHA Phase 11 Rahber
DHA Lahore is marketing about the balloting of DHA Rahber, however it has not announced an exact date. I do see commercial investment as the best option when it comes to Rahber if you have 20 Million as of today.
a. We recommend buying 4 Marla commercial at 170 Lacs for a Short term investment.
b. The residential file however is trading at 30 Lacs which is again not a very attractive price for investment.
