Gwadar is considered to be the Pakistani version of Dubai. Its seaport has great significance not only for Pakistan but for countries such as China, KSA and UAE. The developments in Gwadar are still under process. But once it will be developed, it will provide the most lucrative investment opportunities to local and overseas Pakistanis. There are already a number of housing societies in Gwadar that have been approved by GDA. Some are government-owned societies while others are private ones.
Comparison between private societies and government societies in Gwadar
Investment in government projects like GIEDA (Gwadar industrial estate development authority), Sangar housing society, New Town and naval anchorage housing scheme is a good option. These societies are safe and secure. You can sell your properties in the above mentioned projects anytime at prevailing market rate.
Now let’s talk about private societies. The foremost point to consider while buying a property in private housing societies is their credibility. Even if these housing societies are approved from GDA, they are still not organized. Once you will book your plot and after paying few installments, you will not be able to resell your plot. The reason is very obvious. Buyers are interested to purchase property in government owned housing societies. There are 106 private societies in Gwadar, out of which 79 are residential and commercial societies, 17 are industrial societies, 6 are commercial societies and 4 are Re-creational schemes.
These five societies are most sought-after societies in Gwadar
