Top three localities to buy homes in Karachi

Karachi’s property market is always happening because even if sale and purchase activity for plots slows down, houses keep flipping hands.

For the last several months, property rates have been inching upwards, primarily because improved law and order has convinced many investors to consider property in the city by the sea. Some analysts believe that the downturn seen in Dubai’s property market is also contributing to the increased investment volume in Karachi. Nonetheless, I am glad that Karachi is on road to get the status it deserves as the economic hub of the country.

Seeing a decent rise in the demand for houses is a pleasant change as many people traditionally preferred flats over houses. The availability of affordable options in the north of Karachi has helped bolster demand for houses.
