Real Estate in Pakistan

By Betsy Burlingame

Last updated on Feb 06, 2023

Summary: An expat looking to buy a home in Pakistan should begin by researching the local real estate market and familiarizing themselves with the different types of properties available. They should also consider their budget and the type of amenities they are looking for in a home. Homes in Pakistan typically include amenities such as air conditioning, a kitchen, and a bathroom. Some homes may also include a balcony, a garden, or a terrace. Foreigners are allowed to own property in Pakistan, but there are certain restrictions. For example, foreigners are not allowed to own agricultural land, and they must obtain permission from the government before purchasing any property.

How do I find a place to live in Pakistan?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"The best way to find a place to live in Pakistan is to start by researching the different cities and towns in the country. You can look at online listings for rental properties, or contact local real estate agents to help you find a suitable place. Additionally, you can ask friends and family who live in Pakistan for advice and recommendations. Once you have narrowed down your search, you can visit the area to get a better feel for the neighborhood and to make sure it meets your needs," said one person in Pakistan.

"We lived in Defence as this was close to my husband's place of employment, had a lot of green space, was quiet and has residents who were used to seeing foreigners. We used a real estate company, Deal Makers to find our apartment.
