In this blog, we  are updating the list of top five new housing societies 2020! In 2020’s list, “Top City” and “Faisal Hills” made it to our exclusive list, while other three; Capital Smart City, Eighteen Islamabad and Multi-Garden B-17 are still part of our top 5 pick and we are sharing updates of these societies too. In this blog, you will get all the updated information regarding upcoming housing societies. Here are top five projects among the new housing societies in Islamabad. First, let’s see the criteria that top five projects rate best at.

What Makes a Housing Society Good?

In the midst of many attractive options of new housing societies that are being developed in Islamabad, to choose the best one among them can be a daunting task for an investor and end-consumer.

No need to worry! Islamabad Projects is here for you. We do the research for you and consult the best real estate experts in the market so you can make an informed decision while sitting in the comfort of your own home.

We have picked five top performing housing projects among the relatively newly launched projects. Before we delve into the list of top five projects, let’s review what makes a housing project good in the real estate market.

Location, Location!

Yes, location of the project is a key success factor for any real estate project, be it a commercial mall or a calm residential housing society.

Being closer to the city center and famous landmarks such as airport, main highways, public transport, etc. are the two main elements of a good location because these bring traffic to the new project, causing an increase in demand.

Sound Developer

The ability of the developer to deliver the project on time and under budget is reflected in the existing portfolio of the developing company.

The developer’s goodwill in the market and history of delivering timely projects play a major role in creating the goodwill of their new project.

Stage of NOC

To save yourself from loss, make sure you invest in an RDA or CDA approved society. Once a society receives an NOC, consider it a green signal for you to invest.

Speed of Development Work

Relying on NOC alone is not enough, the speed and quality of development work also matters a lot in determining the future prospects of a project.

A housing society or mall can have the legal approval and the required NOC and still remain a piece of unusable land for years.

So, make sure you compare the development work progress with benchmark projects and the market, especially, if you are hoping for early possession.

Marketing Campaign

Strong marketing of a project increases its credibility and authenticity in the minds of the general public and investors.

In the real estate sector, once a project is approved by the respective development authority (such as RDA or CDA) and has completed all the legal formalities, only then it is allowed to do mass marketing.

So, if you’re seeing their ads on the TV or billboards across the city, it is highly likely that it’s a trustworthy project.

High Liquidity

Liquidity is the ability of an asset to be converted into cash. In simple words, there is a buyer for your asset in the market should you choose to exit from your investment.

A project that has a high rate of selling/purchasing in the market is considered to be liquid and it is true for projects that have a good reputation in the market.

    What is the price of 5 marla plot and villa in eighteen Islamabad project

    • Islamabad Projects

      Eighteen Islamabad only sells villas, no plots. The minimum size of villa in Eighteen Islamabad is 10 marla whose price starts from over Rs. 4 crore.

      However, Eighteen Islamabad also offers apartments 1 bed, 2-bed, 3-bed and studio. Check out the details here.

  • Mohammad Khan

    A great article! Happy to see so many new housing societies popping up around every corner. I am very interested in Eighteen but all my friends are talking about a project called Taj Residencia. Apparently Centaurus Mall 2 will be inside it. Does anyone know if its true and/or worth making an investment in? Thanks

    • Islamabad Projects

      Thank you for your feedback Mr. Khan. If you compare Eighteen Islamabad and Taj Residencia, you will certainly find Eighteen Islamabad more attractive. However, the comparison is not fair; it is like comparing apples to oranges.

      Eighteen Islamabad is offering fully furnished villas and apartments while Taj Residencia is primarily selling plots.

      The vision of Eighteen Islamabad is much more elite and high-class. Their location is ideal. The development work and construction has been happening at a very fast pace at Eighteen. Overall, market is quite optimistic about the success of the project. Of course, it is also more expensive.

      It is true that Centaurus Mall 2 is planned to be inside Taj Residencia. The developer of this society is the same as the developer of The Centaurus Mall. However, while Taj Residencia has been one of the popular real estate projects in the last year, market has been down for this project for the past couple of months. Development work has been slow, investors are waiting for an exit, and liquidity (sale / purchase) has been low. In short, market is a little less confident about this project right now. It is better to wait a little to see the progress before investing.

      In short, from investment point of view, we would recommend to consider a project that has higher liquidity. As an investor, it is important to consider the sell-ability of the product. In the case of Eighteen Islamabad, it is a great investment as a rental property. Being a high-end society, rents will be high. However, resale will be difficult due to higher price, so, not recommended as a short-term investment. If you are looking for a short-term investment, a commercial file in Capital Smart City is a great option. Capital Smart City has very high liquidity in the market and their development work is happening at the fastest pace in Islamabad. Another great option for both short-term and rental investment is to buy a shop in a mall such as Gulberg Mall & Signature Living and Magnus Mall.
