Conclusion: Where to Invest in DHA Islamabad?

The purpose of this article is to provide you with basic brief information on all sectors of DHA.

Short-term investment

We recommend DHA valley. Various factors revolve around DHA valley which includes price fluctuations, development, and demand/supply factors. You can also invest for longer terms if you can wait to see results after potential development.

Garden City is another short-term option. Prices are going to rise soon.

Medium-Term Investment:

DHA Phase 2 & Garden City (DHA Phase 3) is preferred. DHA Phase 4 is feasible especially due to lower prices.

For Residence only, DHA Phase is the best choice. The blocks situated near Islamabad Highway are the central blocks like D, E, G, J, etc.

Long-term investment:

DHA Phase 2 Extension and DHA Valley are the best options to consider. DHA Phase 3 has yet to be the gain trust of its investors. However, you can retain it for a longer period too.
