Bahria Town Phase 1 is the most lucrative investment location in Islamabad’s property market, new research shows.

Pakistan’s best real estate website, Lamudi.pk, has released new data showing the most popular areas with home-buyers and property investors. The list, drawn from search behavior on the Lamudi.pk website, is based on trends regarding houses and plots in Islamabad in 2014.

Saad Arshed, Country Director of Lamudi.pk, said: “Islamabad has bounced back from the slump seen in the local property market following political unrest in 2014. With the capital’s real estate sector set to stabilize this year, the city’s investment outlook has dramatically improved.”
