Coronavirus Effects on Real Estate Industry

Coronavirus has affected every aspect of life. This is creating economic primacy. The nature of government’s response to the disease is changing everyday due to which people are experiences uncertainty. Will Coronavirus effects the real estate sector? The answer is definitely yes. There are many factors that are effecting on real estate sector. Directly or indirectly we look at them sequentially. Sale and Purchase is extremely Low Customer who wants to buy or sell property is getting information through phone or social media but cannot come to office or visit the site. Government is preventing from gatherings due to the increasing threat of corona and that’s right. But because of that fear customer is still implementing on see and wait. Real Estate Market Trend Islamabad’s property sector has the highest turnout in March and April. Property Expo was held during those months which meant booking a new project, especially in real estate. There was a lot of activities to seen in the month of March and April (due to Ramdan) in the real estate sector. Overseas Investment As the coronavirus has become a global pandemic so overseas Pakistani’s are also affecting by it. They are seeking information but still waiting for the situation to get better in Pakistan. About thirty percent investment in the real estate sector of Rawalpindi and Islamabad is from overseas Pakistani’s those who didn’t cancel the purchase but postponed. Trend of Prices Nothing can be said about price reductions or overpricing because of the lockdown, the sale of property is not still possible it will be known only after the market opens. Even before the market closed, the market was not trending very fast. Therefore, prices are unlikely to fall even after the property office opens. State Bank of Pakistan lowers interest rates and lowers rates on stock exchange investor may prefer to invest in property. Due to the lower interest rate by State Bank of Pakistan along with the lowest rate by stock exchange, investor may prefer to invest in property which can also improve prices.  Afterwards Impacts The immediate impact of the virus may be increasing the rates of dollar and gold. Because it was happening in past in an epidemic, war or uncertainty but that happens temporarily. Prices go up to normal rates as soon as the uncertainty ends. Eventually everything will return to normal, all walks of life will be good but some people may not be with us. Coronavirus has changed the story in 2020. The virus will be controlled but in every aspect of society, its effects will be visible. And a new story will start in 2021.

Bahria Towns Joint Venture with Government of Pakistan

Prime Minister Imran Khan inaugurated the much awaited housing project on Thursday for general public. This project is known as Naya Pakistan Housing Project (NPHP) presented by PTI’s government. This project is initiated from the land of Phulgaran, a land where Bahria Town have already started its housing scheme. The land of Phulgaran for this project is bought form Bahria Town management under a reasonable price. Wasim Bajwa told this during inauguration, who is currently the director general of the Federal Government Employees Housing Foundation. According to this scheme 18500 housing units and apartments will be constructed and provided to lower income class on the basis of mortgage in the first phase. Mr. Bajwa told that 1785 Kanal of land has been taken from Bahria Town Management for the purpose of Naya Pakistan Housing Project.Other than that management of Bahria Town will construct 10,000 housing units for Naya Pakistan Housing Project on the same piece of land. And the cost of land will be return to Bahria management after the selling of housing units. Moreover Mr. Bajwa added under Corporate Social Responsibility (CSP) that project is being developed with the collaboration of Bahria Town. It’s absolutely for general public.On easy installment plan monthly installment of Rs10, 000 will be provided to individuals from the banks who are engaged to this policy such as House Building Finance Corporation (HBFC).Prime Minister Khan Addresses to General Public:During the inaugurating of the project Prime Minister Khan said that, one of the biggest hurdles in the way to execute housing program is the non-existence of foreclosure laws. Since there are defaults in laws so the banks does not sell out the mortgaged properties.For the satisfaction of the mortgage debt, Foreclosure is a tonic that is available to a creditor to proceed. But sadly in Pakistan foreclosure is only considered as a right of mortgagee to sell out mortgaged property to enforce the protected debt.We are facing lack houses problem just because banks do not give loans to the general public for housing, while if we talk about other countries, banks in India give 10% housing loans, banks in Malaysia give 30%  and UK banks give 90%  for construction of houses.Imran Khan added that this project will execute through public-private partnership because at this time government is running out of money and can’t execute this project lonely. Moreover Prime Minister said that out of 18,500 housing units, 10,000 houses are going to be constructed for those who had no money to construct their own houses. This project will be completed in the coming 5 years.  Prime Minister added that government also planned to transform informal settlements (katchi abadis) into well-planned housing schemes in all the areas of Pakistan, according to the plan half of the area will be converted into commercial centers and half will be converted into low price apartments that will be given to the inhabitants of the katchi abadis, ultimately they could also have their own houses.  Imran Khan said that overseas investors also want to invest for the housing scheme in Pakistan. And this is just the beginning of a housing era where all of those who can’t even imagine to have their own house will get it as per commitment of the government.
