Housing societies are urban settlements that are developed by the government or private developers. These societies are meant to provide residential and commercial plots to new settlers of a city. Pakistan is undergoing a major real estate transformation. The current government has introduced a series of reforms and tax relief packages that are meant to document Pakistan’s real estate sector. Due to the current upward trend in Pakistan’s real estate market, there a myriad of new housing societies have sprung up. These housing societies are set to be developed by private developers and offer some of the best facilities.

Islamabad is currently abuzz with the launching of new housing societies. The city, like the rest of Pakistan’s other metropolitans, is also witnessing exponential growth in the real estate sector. Due to this uplift in the real estate sector of the city, the housing society business is booming. People at large like to invest in housing societies because of their affordability and easy installment plans. However, there are certain factors such as developer’s repute, regulatory development authority approval, and location, etc. that come into play when investing in a housing society. An ideal housing society should be RDA / CDA approved and the developer should enjoy a good reputation in the real estate market.
