‘Gulberg’, Lahore, is going to be next Dubai. And I will explain why you need to invest in High Rise developments in this area or risk losing out in the opportunity of a lifetime.
During this Global recession, Prime minister Imran Khan’s Construction policy is one of the best decisions during the PTI Tenure. His advisors are extremely astute and know what works during an economic depression. They have followed the same model as California, USA, which was devastated by the worst global depression in the 20th century. California made a miraculous recovery with a ‘Draft of Construction’ policy to become the World’s BIGGEST economy.
The Pakistan Government is hinting that there is going to be 1.5 Trillion rupees economic activity in the next few years. So NOW is the time to invest!
‘Silicon Valley,’ California
If we look at the example of Silicon Valley, the heart of California’s re-invention, we can see the rewards of recognising innovation but most importantly, catching the start of an upward trend. The word ‘silicon’ originally referred to silicon-based technology circuit board production. The area is now home to most of the world’s largest high-tech corporations, including the headquarters of more than 30 businesses in the Fortune 1000, a myriad of company headquarters and thousands of start-up companies.
So, ‘Silicon Valley’ is the result of smart investment. It rose like a phoenix out of the worst recession of the 20th century and became the World’s BIGGEST economy within 25 years from construction to realisation. Innovation and smart money rotation brought global attention and big investment, in a relatively short time span. which continues to this day. ‘California Dreaming’ became the anthem of a generation. When you have a growing economy, innovators and businesses flock to one area where they share commons goals, and attract even more investment.
So how can you invest at the beginning of this trend? Here’s how:

Why is the Real Estate Trend shifting to High Rise buildings in Lahore?
In an Economic depression, everything just stagnates, and your GDP starts going down due to a lack of cash flow. People get fearful and they pull money out of their businesses because they feel that they are not getting good enough returns. Meanwhile, the overall cash flow circle gets disrupted. So the best way to improve cash flow is to offer something in which you can engage maximum people and industries to work for a common goal.
That’s why Imran Khan has offered a construction policy to engage different people and industries for a single objective i.e. we had soaring demand for cement and iron in 2020. The cash flow between different business interests creates a huge demand so the economy doesn’t free fall due to financial chaos.
So the clever investor makes more money when you know the direction smart money flows: everyone wants to catch an upward trend at the start of the rise. Smart money doesn’t go where there is no potential. Smart money comes from smart people who have been multiplying their money by investing in the right trend at the right time. They know where they will get gains because they do proper research before they step in.
You shouldn’t consider yourself a retail investor but an ‘Early Adopter’. This is a true entrepreneur: someone who makes calculated investment decisions and leads the herd.
For that, you need to understand all types of investors in the Real Estate Sector, explained below.
- The Early Adopter
- The Institutional Investor
- The Retail Investor
The Early Adopter
An Early Adopter is the one who always sees the bigger picture; the long term holder; the one who foresees the Market from a 10 years point of view. He actually holds the hammer and smashes the nail at the right time and then doesn’t look back because he knows he placed it in the optimum position. After completing his holding tenure, he re-examines and realises the return on his investment. He makes confident and calculated assumptions while watching the Market’s overall strength and decides whether to sell or hold much more longer.
The Institutional Investor
“Whales” Ever heard of a whale?
Of course, you might have heard of it many times, A Whale is the best description of an Institutional Investor. The Institutional Investor holds a bag of gold which creates euphoria in the Market, inflating the balloon to an abnormal extent, catching small investors (mostly retailers), and cashes out their investments.
The Retail Investor
The Retail investor is mostly the last man standing, caught in the euphoria of making an uninformed decision.
The retail investor is the prey on which the “Institutional investor” feeds. They play with the emotions of the retail investor while creating an artificial price-hype in a certain market, gradually inflating the price where the retail investor enters late and often misses the train, gets caught in the abnormal hype cycle and is exploited by those with deeper pockets. The “Institutional investor” runs out of the Market, cashing out at the optimum time.
The above picture is the basic psychology of every market and we might say that we are in the ‘disbelief phase’ right now because believing in someone’s vision is very difficult to understand and commit to, until you do some educated research. But once the trend starts and people start making money, everyone can join the optimism and the already set belief.
You should be an ‘early adopter’ who makes the most out of its money rather than being the prey of the ‘institutional money’. Get in now. ‘The trend is your friend.’
