How To Invest In Real Estate From Abroad

howtoinvestinpakistanfrom abroad

Ruling a good realtor is problematic even when you live in the city where you are searching. Spending from abroad adds an additional element of trouble.
Since you can not meet prospective agents face to face and you can’t see properties directly, overseas property investment can be perplexing.
However, there are numerous steps you can take to minimalize these problems. Follow them, and finding a great agent will be easy, even from overseas.

1-Use Real Estate Websites and Apps
We know what you’re thinking. This one is apparent! You’re reading this on a real estate website, so of course you know you should use them.
If you really want to, you can just caper to number two now. This one is for the novices among us.
Real estate websites and apps like Lamudi Pakistan are important and useful in discovery an agent for a simple reason.
We do most of the work for you!
Each one of our agents is verified through a rigorous vetting process that ensures reliability and trust. In the unlikely event that you have a problem with an agent, you can rely on us to category it out.
Other tech answers to getting in touch with a realtor in Pakistan while overseas are basic email programs, applications like Skype and economical voice over IP (VOIP) plans from your local communications provider.
2-Ask Contacts and Family
Many overseas Pakistanis maintain their family ties around the world. Whether you live in the United States, the United Kingdom or the United Arab Emirates, referring with your domestic should be one of the first things you do when investing from abroad.
Naturally, your family is probably busy with their own lives and can only help out so much. So without being too demanding, you can ask for their help in simple ways. Some of these include using their address for mailings, having the realtors relay messages through them and of course, the occasional property viewing.
But the most important way your family can help is through recommendations. If a member of your family had a good experience with a particular agent, then he would be the perfect one to start with.
3-Shop About. Try Dissimilar Realtors
For many of us, it is in our nature to put faith and trust in the people who give us immediate attention. This means that we tend to go with the first agent we meet, hoping that they will be the perfect one.
As foolish as this may seem, it is true. Luckily, it is an easy habit to break. Simply get in touch with several agents in one day, and let them know that you are working with other agents and that you would like to hear their commission rates and what they have to offer.
You will be pleasantly surprised about how that subtle hint can put a fire under the agents who really want to help you and can scare away those who are simply not up to the task.

4-Invest More Than Just Your Money
The final step in finding the perfect real estate agent in Pakistan is somewhat philosophical. Naturally, when you invest your hard-earned money into anything, you are hoping for a profit. But investing in real estate is not just about money, as we have said many times here on the Lamudi Pakistan journal.
When buying real estate, you must also invest your time, your hope, your passion and yourself. Buying property means buying into a community. If you aren’t willing to be a part of that community in some way, then it is probably not the right investment for you.

5-Do Your Own Enquiry!
At Lamudi, we value investigation above almost all else. Knowledge is the best tool for finding the perfect agent.
This means doing diligent research on local property transfer laws, agent commissions, taxes, token money, initial deposits (bayana) and in investments that involve a mortgage, the payment scheme.
Some other things to do research on are special procedures for overseas Pakistanis and the certification requirements for real estate agents.

Real Estate Lahore-Islamabad-Karachi

Lahore real estate

Real Estate

The real estate market of Lahore posted varied numbers. While Bahria Town remained steadfast, DHA Lahore’s performance was disappointing. Nevertheless, a decline in rates in DHA does not imply that investors have changed focus, as this locality maintained its top position in Zameen.com’s popularity index. Rates in LDA Avenue I dipped too, but as we foresaw this coming we weren’t too surprised.
Islamabad’s property market put forth a mixed bag as well. Both Bahria Town and DHA Islamabad maintained their price inclines, with Bahria Town posting spectacular numbers for the 10-marla category. As always, Sector F-11 retained its consistent growth, but Sector E-11 saw a drop in rates.
DHA, once again, remained the most popular locality across the board, with one noticeable exception: Gushan-e-Iqbal Town in Karachi saw speedily rising demand for homes and knocked DHA down the second place. To our surprise, Bani Gala was, once again, one of the top five localities for homes in the federal capital this month.

Lahore
Even though Lahore’s realty sector didn’t see any kind of extraordinary push this time around, it still experienced healthy sale-purchase activity.
DHA Lahore failed to impress and both 10-marla and 1-kanal categories saw controlled dips of 2.82% and 1.95% respectively.
Oddly, despite battling many controversies, prices climbed upwards in Bahria Town. Ten-marla plots rose by a significant 6.58% and 1-kanal plots also saw a decent 1.64% rise. Yet, we foresee rates dipping here in the months ahead as this locality has increased transfer charges, which will somewhat disrupt sale-purchase activity.
LDA Avenue I was another locality that experienced a decline in rates. We saw this coming because electricity has not been supplied even though possession has been handed over in the clear areas. Because of this, LDA Avenue I saw a controlled drop of 3.33% for 10-marla plots. One-kanal plots, on the other hand, remained stable and posted a 0.62% rise.
As reliable as always, Lahore Cantt posted 1.39% and 0.94% rises in the 10-marla and 1-kanal categories.
Lahore Cantt registered a 4.68% rental yield, the highest in the 10-marla homes category, while Johar Town enjoyed the highest rental yield for 1-kanal houses – an impressive 4.44%.

TOP 5 LOCALITIES FOR PLOTS & HOMES IN LAHORE | March 2016
PLOTS
1. DHA LAHORE 28.91%
2. BAHRIA TOWN 10.09%
3. BAHRIA ORCHARD 2.35%
4. STATE LIFE 1.85%
5. DHA RAHBAR 1.84%

7. BAHRIA TOWN 6.70%
8. JOHAR TOWN 2.70%
9. IQBAL TOWN 2.63%
10. LAHORE CANTT 2.44%

ISLAMABAD
In March 2016, Islamabad’s realty market followed in the footsteps of Lahore and brought forth a varied bag of ups and downs. DHA Islamabad was an example of this mixed picture, where the average price of 10-marla plots fell by 1.75% and that of 1-kanal plots rose by 3.72%. A sustained upward climb is expected in the months to come.
Sector E-11 unexpectedly saw controlled drops of 1.84% and 2.03% in the 10-marla and 1-kanal categories correspondingly. It looks like investors have turned to societies under development, which may have caused the price dip in this locality. However, the declining rates do not necessarily indicate waning popularity among investors.
Bahria Town had a good month. The average price of 10-marla plots rose by a drastic 6.17% and 1-kanal rates remained stable, registering a negligible 0.07% drop.
Sector F-11 was as bankable as ever and showed consistent growth of 1.22% for 10-marla and 2.75% for 1-kanal plots.
In terms of rental yields, Bahria Town raced ahead of all other localities and listed a decent

3.68% for 10-marla homes and 4.07% for 1-kanal homes.
Once again, Sector F-11 maintained its position as the most expensive area. Here, the average price of a 10-marla house towered at PKR 36,133,103 and that of a 1-kanal home stood at a staggering PKR 68,856,734.

TOP 5 LOCALITIES FOR PLOTS & HOMES IN ISLAMABD | March 2016
Plots
1. DHA Islamabad 21.80%
2. Bahria Town 7.52%
3. Gulberg 3.83%

2. Bahria Town 6.60%
3. Sector E-11 2.54%
4. Sector G-11 2.36%
5. Bani Gala 2.14%

KARACHI
As the Overview reflects, Karachi’s property market continued its boisterous mount in March 2016. The only exception to this was BTK. It looks like the allegations hurled by the Rangers have unsettled investors as even though development work is in full swing, a noticeable fall in prices was noted. The average price of a 250-yard2 plot fell by a jarring 8.04% and that of a 500-yard2 plot fell by 8.56%.
On the other hand, DHA Karachi effortlessly sauntered through the month, proudly posting controlled rises of 1.43% and 1.90% for the 250-yard2 and 500-yard2 categories

It is considerable point for anyone who want to lease Office. Is it suit place for lease because some factor you should keep in mind may be your competitor already exit there

Take your leadership team with you.

It is important to get the feedback of everyone on your leadership team. They might notice something that you may have missed, even something that would make a space inappropriate for your business.

Stay calm.

It is important to remain calm during the tour. If you are too excited, you may lose the ability to negotiate with the landlord. Wait until you leave to discuss whether or not the office space is appropriate for your business.

Ask about other businesses in the building.

Are you going to be competing against other similar businesses in the building? Are there others that you would prefer not to be paired with? Any businesses you could work with?

Don’t get emotionally involved.

Try to keep your emotions out of the equation. Prioritize what is best for your business.

Take a look at the bathrooms.

Bathroom maintenance will give you an idea of how the building is maintained. If it is a multi-storied building, look at a few on different floors.

Make sure the building can provide the communication connections you need.

Nothing could be worse than signing a lease and then finding out you can’t get the Internet or telecommunication systems you need.
It can be hard to find the perfect office space, especially if you tour several locations. You need to be prepared. A good tenant rep, like the ones we have at Office Finder, will help make sure that you are ready with the information you need to make a good decision.
