Investment Opportunities During Political Unrest

Political Unrest is not a special event in Pakistan. In the history of more than 70 years, the political instability has become a not so special event in the country. Political unrest affects every sector of the country’s economy whether it is related to Stock trade markets or the real estate market. The effect is quite negative as investors have started to withdraw their investment during such time from the market and start saving to save some money for the unstable times or for not losing the entire investment due to loss.

Investment Opportunities During Political Unrest

Due to loss of investment, there has been a dip in the market of the real estate sector. Some of the reasons are as follows:

Short Term Recession:

The previous government had helped the real estate sector a lot by introducing some growth policies for this sector. But now as the government has changed and so has the investors’ wishes. Now the investors want to gain quick and easy profits over night. As this sector is going through a short run recession, short term profits are not possible.

The investors who have invested in the real estate properties should hold the investment and not try to sale it. Wherever you have invested you should try to retain it as the long term profits are still being expected and the value of the properties will be multiplied more than once if you hold the properties now.

Rising Dollar Rates:

Due to the inflation and the receding value of the Pakistani rupee, the US Dollar ($) has been reaching its all-time high now. The investors have started to withdraw investment from real estate sector and now investing in USD. Due to this, USD is rising at a continuous rate and real estate sector has been seeing loss.

Investors should try to invest in our country so that the capital does not move out of the country and help the economy to stand back into a better position.

The USD reserves should be put into banks so that some of the foreign reserves of our country rises. By taking money out of the economy is considered a big loss. Even a small amount can create a big impact on the economy and also the living standards of the country.

Launch of new projects:

Although, the rate of launching new real estate projects has been low right now, but these are still being launched. The management of these projects also make their own feasibility reports to portray the profits they can make by launching in the market. It they don’t see potential in the market, they would not launch. This shows us that still the market is still quite potential for investment.

More profit in Real Estate than in USD:

Investor who are thinking that due to increasing USD value, they should invest in it more than real estate but it is only for short term. To gain profits in this way is very difficult process as the USD value is also unstable and investors will have to take right decisions at the right time.

If anyone buys USD thinking that it will benefit him more than real estate property, then the following calculations should be considered a well.

If anyone sell the property of PKR 1.5 Crore and converts into USD, he will get approximately $75,000 revenue and a profit of PKR 7 to 8 Lac. Even if we double this amount, up to 15 Lac, Investors can gain more than this by just holding their properties in the real estate sector.

Perfect time for investment in Real Estate:

As the real estate sector is losing its value right now, it is the perfect time for investment in this sector as the prices are not high now. It is a fact that real estate will not completely lose its value and make the investors dirt poor. Real Estate will be again on its feet in a short time again. Investors should make the investment decisions right now as they can have the expensive properties in low rates right now.

Investors should invest in small amounts to mitigate the risks and hold the properties so that they can make most out of their investment. The easiest way for investment are the installment projects.
