A Key Economic Driver

The importance of the real estate sector as a catalyst for growth can be gauged from the fact that it is the second largest employer next only to agriculture. This is because of the chain of backward and forward linkages that the sector has with the other sectors of the economy, especially with the housing and construction sector.

About 250 ancillary industries, such as cement, steel, brick, timber and building materials, are dependent on the real estate industry. A unit increase in expenditure in this sector has a multiplier effect and the capacity to generate income as high as five times. Various research houses indicate that the asset market size in Pakistan is $700 billion, and the highest share of that is in real estate. It is estimates that if one million people are living in houses built on areas of 500 square yards for each house, the total value of those assets comes to around $300 billion which is more than the total annual GDP.

Foreign Investors

Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is the key of development for any economy in its development phase. Pakistan is also in dire need of development projects as backbone of its economy. Historically due to underdeveloped financial market and lack of awareness of investments opportunities, Real Estate investments have been the primary investment segment especially for Non-Residing Pakistanis. The real estate sector after about 4 years of recessionary slump from 2007 – 2010 started gaining its momentum in 2011. It again picked up its peak in mid-2013.

This resulted in almost 50-100% gains in just 2 years’ time which definitely is very impressive by investment standards. Real Estate is always considered comparatively safe investment in both bullish and bearish times because of its tangible asset value attached to it irrespective of its present value.
