People are more likely to move into areas that are closer to job opportunities. The more people prefer areas like this, the greater is the price for rent. So, investing in areas with more opportunities will offer you a long-term benefit.
For instance, investing in a plot for sale in Islamabad provides more benefit because it has a lot of job opportunities available that attract attention of buyers.
3. Location is key
While talking about opportunities of areas, we also need to consider the locality and amenities available. Most buyers looking for homes prefer a plot for sale in an area where there are good schools, universities, hospitals and parks nearby. It is important to note that people also prefer good road conditions and transportation availabilities in the area. This can be observed by taking the following example. DHA Peshawar plots have more user interest because it is a developed area with most amenities nearby.

Thus, always consider the security condition of an area before you invest in it.
5. Size and Condition
When buying a property for investment, make sure to go for plots and properties smaller in size. This is because most people are just looking for a 2-3-bedroom place. These properties are within the price range of a larger number of people. Larger properties are much more expensive. Very few people actually rent or buy large properties. That is why smaller properties offer you a greater benefit and investment return.
Along with property size, keep an eye on the condition of the property you are buying, whether it be a plot or house. If the condition is poor, you will have to invest extra amount to make the property habitable. Then you will have to consider this extra amount for rent too. It is a better idea to invest in properties that need little to no renovation. This way you can put it up for rent as quick as possible and earn from it. It will also make life easier for you since you won’t have to spend extra time or money on the property.
Looking at a property whether you are considering buying it for yourself or just as an investment opportunity is a very big and important decision. With a decision that big, it is only appropriate that you give the decision ample time and actually analyze different properties before putting in the money. Considering the above things while buying a property increase the chances of that property being actually beneficial for you.
These factors are important whether you are looking for a home or just an investment. That’s because they analyze the living conditions of a property and its area. Good conditions are important in both cases.
