dear all
please comment on future prospect of dha bahawalpur? all gurus are welcome

new replied on Monday, July 10, 2017 10:22 PM PST 

Affidavit file is 30, installment file is 40. Installments about to finish next year. Balloting expected this year. Do the maths. My view is small but quick gain may be seen. Cheap option in dha but Some fear difficult to sell though I'm not sure. Commercials have seen a recent increase in own. happy investing.

Hi Daniyal
Thanks for your reply I have been requesting from one of your colleague since the results has been announced, I think he is not taking it serious even the prices for my files were lot more when I asked your colleague Asad to hep me to sell it out and he has been keep ignoring or may be don't want business, I have lost money because of Asad's ignorance he was saying no body is buying files because of transfers, when normal buying and selling for Multan dha is in progress from the day first since the balloting results has been announced, He basically miss lead me and did not sell my files which is frustrating and it makes me really upset against LRE. I am in abroad in UK cant do anything without you guys or without your help.

DHA Multan...Lovely Investment
Have spoken with another local resident of Multan today.

He has said there is a lot of pent up demand for quality housing in Multan. On average 12 lacks per marla prices in Wapda Phase 1. So 2 Crore plus for 1 Kanal.

Army captains have to wait over 2 years to get plot allocated in Cantt.

It will be the go-to area for most of the Southern belt army officers. Already many army officers allocated land in DHA Bhawalpur have asked to transfer their allocations to DHA Multan.

Multan is also one of the few major NODES on CPEC route in Punjab so future a lot of development expected.

Nabeel® replied on Wednesday, June 28, 2017 04:30 PM PST 

Map of CPEC with Multan designated as a NODE city


What is a Node?
"Development nodes are geographic points where economic or social resources/activities are (or will be) concentrated.."


Nabeel® replied on Wednesday, June 28, 2017 04:39 PM PST 

Please Note: DHAB is also good investment especially with ballot expected, most probably ballot for DHAB will be held in less than 9 months. However, the returns will taper off/plateau, after a while and investment needs to be moved elsewhere later.

Multan will continue to give (in worst case) 10 lakhs return on average every year for much longer, better annual returns if progress is better.

On investment of under 50 lakh, very good cash cow. Nothing in Lahore at this price at this entry point which gives net 20% annual returns. And not required to switch investment after 1 or 2 years.

Dear Tahir

Installments of M7C 5 marla are supposed to complete till August 2018, and then development charges are supposed to be paid till August 2019. so what are your expectations in August 2017? On the whole its a good news for M7C File Holders that things are happening on time and not taking as delay as others, Ofcourse M8 has different story but this M7C is just adjacent to M7A, M7B(no land issue) and after map release, Balloting, next step will be development start.

visitor replied on Wednesday, June 28, 2017 05:38 PM PST 

Dear LRE and Other Members.

I have paid one 2nd installment late. Can anybody inform that if the earlier installments are paid late due to some reason then fine on the late payment will have to paid/cleared before july 31, for to be a part of balloting, or no need of payment of fine now it will be cleared at possession time?

Habib replied on Sunday, June 18, 2017 02:04 PM PST 

There is lot of Contradictory discussing about Lake City, Just to Inform the audience I will give a summary here what is fact.
First to all need to understand it Location. As all Know it is on Raiwind Road and have Interchange of LRR just at its door step there is no big society till date who got Maximum benefit of LRR next will be prism or Possibly LDA City, But one should not forget the Raiwid By Pass Road which passes on side of Valencia and reaches directly on Lake city. To me this is even more important Than Raiwind Road. There are Alas 2 Medical Colleges 2 Engineering Universities and two dental Colleges Just with in 3,4 KM radius,
After Initial High Booking and transfer rate Lake City made a comeback in 2015 when On Ground plots reached double to triple price just in a year. Based on that there was lot of Speculation Buying and selling by dealers and after improvement in price Lake city was able to get more Land and New Blocks were announced.
Is it Over Priced as Of Now M2 and M3 Kanal are Cheaper and are hooverig 100 to 115 Lac, Keep in Mind developed Possession and all those Facilities and access Roads which are not Market Trend. M2A and M3A smaller Plots are bit expensive but no one Can deny the fact that they have best location.
What about new Booking? If you see the prices of Existing Plots these Booking are Cheaper and have good margin to grow,
What is not good here/
This not a good investment for speculative buyers or people who wanted to Book for quick Money, as to get a buyer in Market at premiums they need good overall market trend. On the the other hand they have no money to pay due installments and have hefty fines by Lake City, These are the issues which are causing distaste in Many Bloggers and they keep writing negative about Lake City.
On the other hand my opinion is all gains by Lake city are justified and it is good only for end users . Even if you go for on ground Plot you will not lose and you buy a Plot on installment for intension to Own a plot you will not lose.
I will not comment on Commercial as it is not 2+2=4 science , There are many factors which lead to plus and minus but Keep in Mind they are highly dependent on Market trend, You should Calculate your Odds before jumping into that.

AOA brothers
I am holding 5marla M7C lake city plot file. Booking price of this file is 30lac+ 5lac are its development charges. i need advice from gurus about its future. should i hold it and pay remaining installments or sell it.
please advice. regards

Waseem® replied on Friday, June 16, 2017 05:31 PM PST 

i think Lake city plot holders should wait until Ring Road opens, which is probably this August. There is another boom awaiting for Raiwind Road properties after Ring Road is inaugurated. Properties on Raiwind Road still have lots of margin to gain compared to DHA/Prism. The distance between Prism & Raiwind Road will be like 10 mins, hence a huge chance for Raiwind Road Properties to gain, especially on ground plots.

Habib replied on Friday, June 16, 2017 07:50 PM PST 

However after your Booking there were Land File All Paid @30 Lac exemption given to Land Owners but now I don't Find any of these files in Market Best Advice for you is to Hold. timing of entry and exit Matters in Property. If Entry was at wrong time then Exit should be at good Time, I hope you understand.

Raja Nasir replied on Friday, June 16, 2017 08:23 PM PST

Cost Of building 10 Merla house
This article is from May 2015 you may add 15% More charge is all items
B-category 10-marla residential units have become the top choice for the middle class. If you peruse in May 2015, you will notice that except for a few high-end localities, price ascents are always more prominent for 10-marla plots. This reflects that there is a greater demand for them.

This kind of demand is a consequence of the need for more private space, even in combined family setups. Moreover, a unit of this size can also accommodate the future needs of the growing families, as the floorplans can be adjusted accordingly later on.

Although there are exceptions, 10-marla homes are often of B-category construction quality. And here’s the good news: a well-planned home of this quality can easily pass off as a B+- or A-category abode.

So if you’re looking to build a 10-marla B-category house, this article will give you a detailed estimate of the money you need to construct it. If you want to cut costs even further, there is slight margin in the woodwork and flooring options if you pick cheaper material that falls in the C category.

Covered area

In housing societies that strictly follow construction bylaws, some area has to be left uncovered from the front, one side as well as the back. Out of the total 2,250 square feet (10 marlas), approximately 1,800 square feet of land can be used as covered area. Interestingly, unlike restrictions imposed on 5-marla houses, the covered area of a 10-marla unit can be same for both the ground floor and the first floor.

Therefore, the rates mentioned in this article are for a total covered area of 3,600 square feet. Please note that the information doesn’t include the cost of the plot, the amount required to get a house map made, the installation of electricity and gas metres, and price of electrical appliances such as tube lights and fans.

Labor costs

Contractors make sure that they stay with a project until it is completed. This applies to laborers, too, as working for contractors offers more job security, which is why they charge reasonably. This kind of contract suits both parties, because having a set of workers attached to your project to the end can help you communicate your vision.

Labor costs depend on the construction period. Prolonging work in hopes of making more money is a common practice among laborers. The builder, however, usually wants to hand the project over by the promised time as his professional reputation is at stake.

Contractors often set the wages of the laborers depending on their skills. In the case of B-category construction, the daily wage of each laborer falls between PKR 250 to PKR 300 per square foot. Depending on the availability of finances, a 10-marla house can be completed in 6 to 7 months.

Total cost: PKR 1,000,000


Approximately 60,000 bricks are required to build a 10-marla house. The entire grey structure, from foundation and the rooftop to the boundary wall, can be constructed with this many bricks. Please note that this estimate doesn’t include the construction of mumty. The rate of 1,000 bricks, per their quality, ranges from PKR 6,000 to PKR 9,000.

For B-category homes, builders recommend bricks that cost about PKR 7,000 per 1,000 pieces as the cheaper ones don’t give the required structural strength.

Total cost: PKR 420,000


Approximately 2,000 square feet of gravel (bajri) is required to build a double-story 10-marla house. At the moment, the price of gravel is PKR 65 per square foot (a PKR 10 decrease from last year’s rate of PKR 75 per square foot). The rate and quality of gravel is the same throughout the country.

To form the base of floors, another form of gravel, locally known as bajar, is used. Leftover bricks can be broken up into smaller pieces and be used as bajjar. For the kind of unit under study, 1,200 square feet of bajjar is needed. The current rate of bajjar is PKR 55 per square foot ( a PKR 15 increase from last year’s rate of PKR 40).

Total cost: PKR 130,000 (bajri) + PKR 66,000 (bajjar) = PKR 196,000


The current price of cement is PKR 510 per sack, a PKR 10 increase from last year. For a 10-marla house, you will need 1,400 sacks of cement.

Total cost: PKR 714,000


Sand is ideally measured in square feet, but contractors and builders calculate it by the number of trucks. For a 10-marla house, 7 trucks of sand are enough. The rate of sand hasn’t change recently. It still stands at PKR 10,000 per truck.

Total cost: PKR 70,000


The market rate of rebar (sarya) is PKR 70,000 per ton, which has significantly decreased from PKR 85,000 in one year. It is highly recommended not to use cheap rebar for the construction of any structure. For the kind of house we are discussing, around 6 tons of rebar will be required.

Total cost: PKR 420,000


Wiring is done after the grey structure is completed. Depending on how the contractor works, electricians can work either independently or on contract. In residential buildings, two types of wires are used: 3/29 gauge and 7/29 gauge. The 3/29 gauge wire is for low-consumption appliances and the 7/29 one is for high-consumption appliances.

For the wiring of a 10-marla house, you need 20 coils of both 3/29 gauge and 7/29 gauge wires. The per coil market rate of the 7/29 gauge wire is PKR 4,300, and that of 3/29 gauge wire is PKR 2,700. The electrician’s service charges and the total cost of the wire constitute the total wiring expense.

Please note that UPS wiring needs another five coils. Just like rebar, you should not compromise on the wire quality to save costs.

Total cost: PKR 200,000


The flooring of a B-category house is mostly done in marble, preferably booti-seena. Theper square foot rate of this is PKR 60. Although marble is relatively cheaper, the cutting, grinding and polishing makes marble flooring an expensive deal. The cost of flooring for the entire house includes bathrooms (3 attached, 1 powder room) in which China-made tiles are used instead of marble.

Total cost: PKR 950,000


Woodwork comes after the flooring. Wood is required for wardrobes, kitchen cabinets, doors and decorative racks in the living room and the drawing room. Rates vary from vendor to vendor and, in order to save costs, you can use prefabricated material instead of wood.

Often, folks looking to save costs skip wardrobes from the construction plan. I don’t recommend doing that because such houses have a lower sale price and are also difficult to rent out on the market rate.

Total cost: PKR 600,000

Windows and glass

Windows give the home the desired elevation and façade. Window frames, wire mesh, metal frames, grills and glass panes are all a part of window work.

Total cost: PKR 200,000

Sanitary fittings

Commodes, wash basins, showers, taps, showers, kitchen sinks and sewerage pipes are some of the essential sanitary fittings of a house. In a B-category 10-marla unit, people use local brands. Although these may be less attractive to look at, they aren’t any less durable if chosen wisely.

Total cost: PKR 600,000

Assorted fittings

Assorted fittings include locks, doorknobs, switchboards and cabinet handles.

Total cost: PKR 150,000


The paint job is done after sanitary and assorted fittings are installed. It is more expensive to get a newly built house painted as several base coats are required to give the walls a neat look. The paint job doesn’t just include the cost of paint but also the labour.

Total cost: PKR 600,000

Grand total: 6,120,000 +15% 2 ys inflation

And there you go! This is all you need to know about the cost of building a B-category 10-marla house. At the moment, the average sale price of a 10-marla residential plot in Pakistan is PKR 6,500,000. Adding the construction cost to this, a B-category 10-marla should set you back by 12,620,000.

In the market, however, such houses have a price tag of PKR 16,000,000 or more, so getting your own home constructed can save you at least PKR 4,380,000. We think it’s worth the hassle!

In case of A category, how much amount should be added to this total cost?

B Category are usually very good, Dont be impressed by "B" A category is Like Hotels and Model Houses and have no Higher end, More expensive Interior tiles wood and Fixtures , Branded Kitchens Branded Bath room Fixtures all can add 15 lac to 20 lac in total cost, But need lots of experience to get material and skilled labor as this work is usually not done frequently hence only good architect can help to accomplish it who may charge 6 lac extra,

As a rule of thumb 2000rs per square feet approximately will be the cost of construction.
If you use cheaper wood tiles etc then 1800rs will be cost for one square foot

Great in-depth analysis. Just a minor observation to share, average sale price of a 10 marla plot in Karachi is no where close to 6.5 million - it may average around 26.5 million. And the house prices in Karachi are also around similar levels. So there is little benefit in buying a plot and build.

The stark difference between Karachi and Lahore is that in Karachi a vacant plot is a rare commodity that is rarely found in any schemes located within Karachi. Hence it is a precious commodity and the demand is close to the demand of a built up but a bit old house - new houses are also rare. Whereas in Lahore there are just thousands and thousands of empty plots across hundred of newly established societies and that's why it makes more sense to build a house and then sell to clients want to own a new house for living.

Dear Sir, You forgot to mention steel price ;) As we all know a house can not build without steel. So please add steel price in it. I wonder why no one noticed this mistake???

Dear Habib, Good research for people who want to build a house. But I am wondering why you forgot to mention steel cost? I think you should add another 6 to 8 lac in your house building cost. thanks.

Nice analysis but you forgot to mention cost of steel i.e. 6 to 8 lac. I think you can not make a house without steel :D ;)

my question is same. Lake city prices are at rock bottom. when gain is expacted

Sohail replied on Saturday, May 13, 2017 06:49 PM PST 

I am also carrying one 10 Marla plot in M2A. As per my understanding, real gain will come somewhere near start of next year 2018.
Ring road will be inaugurated in Aug 2017 and when traffic will start rolling from Lake city interchange then people will start seeing the housing construction in lake city and this will be the moment of escalate in prices.
Atleast 30-40 % will jump near Jan 2018. Traffic from all other societies like Valencia, bahria towns, defense road and raiwind road societies will converge on Adda Plot.
Rest Allah knows better.
