DHA Lahore:

This poshest region of all doesn't have an excessive number of condo structures. Finding economical lodgings here will be really tough.

However, in most commercial areas of the region, the upper floors of business structures are leased for residential use. To discover these spaces you should do a little legwork. These structures have 1-room spaces with a monthly rent starting from PKR 20,000, which may not sound too sparing but rather it is when compared with rents in rest of the area – a little portion of a home will cost at least PKR 50,000 month to month.


It has a couple of top-notch business and private areas. Liberty and MM Alam Road are the center points of commercial centers – mostly featuring renowned national and global brands. Property costs in Gulberg are cosmologically high. However, there are two pockets of residential areas you may want to investigate.

To start with is the Ghalib Market and Gurumangat Road range. It has condo structures, and also the best floors of business structures that are very reasonable. Ghalib Market has pads accessible for as low as PKR 15,000. At that point, there is a building named Ali Apartments in Akram Park that has 3-room flats for PKR 20,000-25,000.

The other affordable territory in Gulberg is the patch of old settlements in Canal Park close to Main Market. It has some residential buildings with 1-, 2-, and 3-room flats, with extremely reasonable rates: PKR 12,000 to be precise. Ashraf Building is one such reasonable private complex which has all essential necessities available in an extremely cost-effective manner.

The rest of Gulberg has a small apartment which star from PKR 45,000.

Model Town:

Throughout the years, it was the decision of the upper class of Lahore since it was far from the buzzing about of the city. It is still a fastidiously planned area and offers a peaceful living environment. Normally, property costs are high here.

Affordable homes here can be found in International Market and Central Flats of Block N. The residential building in central flats are very old and comprise of small rooms. A room here would cost you somewhere between PKR 4,000 to 10,000 a month.

To save money on the lease and different costs, I would propose leasing a 2-or 3-room condo and offer the space to your friends. Not only will it be sparing, but more fun as well.

So these were the territories that you could investigate for a more reasonable residence. If you have any suggestions, please leave a comment down below.
