Real estate is one of the most lucrative and efficient ways of investing your money. The profit that results as a result of it is most of the time quite remarkable. However, it is a risky one as well and requires a lot of courage, patience, and capital from the investor. Yet, the trend is mostly seen on the positive side and is highly encouraged that if you have enough money and are looking to invest somewhere, real estate is one of the best choices. Since it requires less physical effort and can result in a great return of your initial amount.
It is an excellent custom of successful businessmen that one of their key investment is in real estate. There are several ways that you can invest your money in real estate, but given below are some of the most popular and profitable modes.
1. Buy and Sell a property
The most common mean of investing in real estate is to buy and sell a property. Since in a country like Pakistan, the land rates gradually increase with time. The prices are even increased 2 to 3 times the initial value within a decade or even a year or two. For example, if we take a look on the property rates in Islamabad, it has been seen that prices have increased from 55% to even 100% in modern societies and areas of Islamabad like DHA, Bahria Town, Sector S-11, F-7, etc. in the last two to three years. Similarly, this trend is seen in most of the major cities of Pakistan.
Property in Islamabad is generally always on a high since the city is the capital of Pakistan, and its peaceful environment attracts the attention of most people, and more people are looking to invest there. However, this does not mean that other cities of Pakistan are lacking behind. The same trend is followed almost everywhere.
There are several kinds of real estate property that you can buy and sell; for example, you can either buy and sell a plot, a house, a plaza, or even a building. The rates and the profit of each are different, and the time required in generating that profit might be different as well. For instance, plots are generally cheaper than houses, so it is easier to buy and sell. Most people opt to buy and sell plots since they are usually less expensive and can produce good returns since houses can’t be kept for long periods.
2. Buy and Rent a property
The second most common thing that is done by most of the people is buying and renting a property. The property could be anything a house, apartment, or a shop. It is a common practice by most of the people that they buy a double-unit house, they keep one for themselves and rent the other. In this way, they get to kill two birds in one arrow, i.e., have the comfort of their own home as well a good return of their investment. Similarly, many people buy commercial property such as shops, plazas, etc. Instead of using these shops for their own business, they rent the shops and enjoy the money generating from their rent. Regardless of this, many people opt to buy houses only to rent them, while some purchase buildings at a commercial area like along the main road, keep the top for living purposes and build shops at the bottom to rent them. Hence, there are several choices to choose from, and one may be suitable for some, and others might not. Therefore, you should do in-depth research before choosing one.

3. Buy a plot, build and sale
Another thing that you can do is to buy a plot, make it and deal. You are sure to get a good profit out of your investment. Many professionals follow this trend for investing in real estate. They generally look for plots at a negotiable rate and buy them. Then they either have their labor or workforce, or they hire a constructor to build a house, plaza, or whatever on that land, and then they sell the unit for the right amount of money. In this way, they can get a considerable profit out of their initial investment.
This kind of investment in real estate generally takes a lot of time, physical effort, and it is a risky one as well. Since, after building something on the land, there is no surety, that the one you make is likely to get sold quickly or at the amount that you desired. Hence, this kind of investment is generally avoided by common-man.
4. Buy, renovate and sale
Another trend usually followed by professionals is that they buy an old house or building, renovate it and sell them for a good amount of money. However, this kind of investment is also a risky one and is generally avoided by most people. It also requires a lot of back-hand capital, but if done professionally can result in a good return.
Investing in real estate has different categories and levels; a different type of investment is suited for different kinds of people. But, for a general summary, if you are a common-businessman or a worker and are looking for investing in real estate than you should either choose to buy a plot and sell it in the future or buy a house, shop, etc. and rent them since, this kind of investment is generally easy, requires less initial capital. While the last above-mentioned last categories usually are for those people who are professionals in the field of real-estate.
