Investment in High Rise Buildings vs. Plots

In the last few years, the increase in the development of high rise is the sign that it is being preferred by the investors and the real estate sector is seeing a shift in the investment, from plots to high rise buildings.

In the past, the real estate sector of major cities like Karachi, Lahore or Islamabad/Rawalpindi witnessed the high rise buildings where the residential space was very less and there was always issues of accommodation. These high rise buildings are preferred as these type of investments are always less costly and also feature a great number of facilities and amenities under the same roof.

Which option is better for investment, high rise buildings or plots?

We will now discuss which option is better for investment by the general public.

Investment in high rise buildings:

Investment in high rise buildings has become more popular as the residential space is decreasing in the country and people are facing accommodation shortages. The shortages of land has led to development of the residential societies on the agricultural land. But as this had created the food shortages in the country.

The developers of the real estate had come up with the solution of the high rise buildings where a large number of people can be accommodated in a small space without being congested.

High rise buildings can be as high as the infrastructure allows the buildings to be. In some countries it can be as high to even 100 floors but in Pakistan 10 to 15 floors in major cities are common for residential purposes.

On each floor, two to three units are available which can accommodate three families easily at once. Due to this, the prices are low for investment in high rise buildings. The people with low budget for residential purposes can easily invest in the high rise buildings anywhere. High rise buildings are now present in every new residential society which offers every amenity and facility of the international standards.

Some residential societies are also offering multi-purpose projects which are also featuring the commercial shops too. These types of high rise buildings are being quite preferred as the residents can easily avail the benefits of commercial area just under their apartment and under the same roof in the high rise buildings.

One of the big advantage of investment in the high rise buildings is that the apartments can be given on rent. Earning stable monthly rent is a very wise choice made by investing in the high rise buildings. This type of earnings does not have to be involved every day, like any other type of earning.

People who invest in plots believe that they can have greater privacy by living in houses, not in apartments where people don’t have much privacy.

Some people also prefer low rise buildings or plot as they don’t have to care for the maintenance of the properties. There is no need to maintain, repaint or any other maintenance including the whole house.

Size of the family also matters greatly in the decision of investing. If someone lives with old parents, his preference will be to live in a house made on the plot, not in the high rise buildings. Some people in Pakistan don’t like using elevators or taking stairs. So the other options always is investment in plots.

Residential societies like Bahria Town, DHA, Bahria Orchard Lahore, New Metro City, LDA City, Lake City Lahore, Victoria City, Liberty Lands and many more are offering a number of plots in different sizes ranging from 5 Marla plot to 2 Kanal plot in residential category.


In conclusion, we can say that if anyone is confused about they should invest or which option is better for investment, high rise buildings or plots; it depends on the budget available for investment. And if anyone is investing solely for the residential purposes, the size of the family matters too.
