10 Things You Must Consider Before Buying a Plot in Pakistan

Most buyers make several mistakes while purchasing a plot in Pakistan that cost them in the long run. Some cannot resell it and have to bear every problem that comes with it. Thus, purchasing a Real Estate piece should be a critical, thoughtful, and mindful process.

As a buyer, you always wonder:

  • How can I make the best purchase on Real Estate?
  • What factors should I consider before buying a plot?
  • Am I making the right decision, and how do I know that?

Well, here are ten things to consider before buying a plot in Pakistan.

Let’s begin!

  1. Define Your Purpose

The first thing to consider is why you want to purchase the plot. Whether:

  • You want to build a house to reside there
  • You want a property to rent it
  • You want to sell for a profit in the future
  • You want to own a commercial property on it
  • You want a building for any specific purpose

When you have a defined purpose, you’ll look at everything in the plot that suits it.

  1. Know Everything About the Location

The future value of your plot depends upon it. You must decide whether you want to invest in an area that can be:

  • Urban 
  • Semi-Urban
  • Rural
  • Developed
  • Developing
  • Underdeveloped

Every above category will have a different price and future value. So, decide the best vicinity that suits your budget and future goals. For example, if you can invest your money for a decade, you can choose a developing project. On the other hand, if you want to reside, you must look for a developed and urban society.

  1. Consider the Cost 

You can get a plot in the most expensive area if you can afford it. But it is not the case with everybody. So, you have to fix a number before going shopping. It’s best to define a range within which you should look for options. Plus, it’s best to stick with it. Otherwise, some impressive options may compel you to spend over your budget.

  1. Consider Facilities 

If you want to reside, you must choose a plot with every modern facility, such as electricity, gas, water, internet, phone, quality roads, hospitals, educational institutes, commercial centers, security, economic opportunities, and many more.

If you want to rent, you can compromise on some facilities. However, your rental income will also decrease with it.

  1. Consider Type of Plot 

You can either buy a plot for residential purposes or commercial purposes. So, choose your type. Look for a sun face, easily accessible, and developed land piece for residence. On the other hand, look for a land piece on the road with maximum population density for commercial purposes.

  1. How will you finance the plot?

You have three options in terms of payment for the plot:

  • One-time payment
  • Payment on installment
  • Band financing

So, decide on your payment option that suits you, then look for plots in the market. Every payment option will also have its perks. So, you have to settle with them.

You can buy almost every plot with a one-time complete payment. But you have to find Off-Plan projects for payment in installments. Further, bank financing options are available only for selected areas and locations.

  1. Time of purchase

It is the trick of investors to buy when rates are low and sell when rates become high. So, you can also use it for your benefit. For example, in a plot where everything is available, and people are afraid to purchase, you will find low rates. So, you can dare and buy. After some time, a positive buyer trend can elevate prices, and you can earn a profit.

Remember, if you are new to property investing, you must not choose this option. It can also backfire. 

  1. Old Sales of the Plot

If you want to buy a specific plot, you must find out how many times it has been sold before. Old sales will give you the reason why people are not choosing to build on that plot. This way, you’ll save yourself from problems in the future. Too many sales on a single land piece is always a red signal.

  1. How will the transaction happen?

Find out:

  • Am I buying from a single owner?
  • Is there a loan on the plot?
  • How will legal matters proceed?
  • Will the owner be present during the transaction?

It can happen that after the purchase, you may find:

  • Another claim of ownership
  • Loan on the property
  • Incomplete legal documents
  • Real Estate agent doing a double game with the owner, and you

So, be vigilant and clarify everything before finalizing the transaction.

  1. Always have a Plan B

You can have everything sorted out about a plot. But there will always be a possibility of happening what you do not want. So, it’s best to devise a Plan B. For example, you must consider renting if you cannot reside. Plus, your plot must have a resale value if you want to take out your investment anytime sooner.
