In a recent analysis by Mr. Nasri Gondal, CEO of Gondal Group of Marketing, a seasoned professional with over two decades of experience in Pakistan’s real estate market, three critical factors have been identified as contributing to the property market crash. Let’s delve into these reasons to gain a deeper understanding of the dynamics at play.

Proliferation of Social Media and Fraudulent Marketing:

The advent of social media platforms has revolutionized the way information is disseminated, including within the real estate sector. However, with increased connectivity came a surge in fraudulent marketing practices. Before the era of social media, instances of fraud in real estate were relatively rare. However, the ease of spreading misinformation through platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram has created fertile ground for unscrupulous individuals to exploit unsuspecting investors.

1-Careless Decision

Instead of conducting thorough investigations into properties and developers, many individuals relied solely on social media posts and advertisements to inform their investment decisions. This lack of scrutiny created an environment ripe for exploitation, as opportunistic builders capitalized on the naivety of investors to market projects with no intention of delivering on their promises.


2-Failure to Deliver on Promises:

Linked closely to the previous point is the rampant failure of developers to deliver on their promises. Buoyed by the unchecked proliferation of fraudulent marketing tactics and the gullibility of investors, many builders embarked on projects with little intention of seeing them through to completion. Instead, their primary aim was to lure investors with enticing advertisements and then abscond with their funds, leaving behind a trail of unfinished projects and disillusioned buyers.

3-Lack of Law Enforcement

Despite existing laws, the failure to implement them effectively paved the way for widespread malpractice. Thousands of individuals, drawn by the allure of lucrative returns, invested in property files with the promise of future plots. Regrettably, many of these investments never materialized, leaving countless individuals disenfranchised and disillusioned

4-Political Instability and Investor Distrust:

During previous administrations perceived as foreign-friendly, overseas Pakistanis displayed a greater inclination towards investing in property within the country. However, the current political climate has ushered in an era of uncertainty, eroding trust and confidence among overseas investors. As a result, the influx of foreign investment vital for sustaining the property market has dwindled, exacerbating the crisis.


The confluence of factors elucidated by Mr. Nasir Gondal underscores the intricate challenges plaguing the Pakistan property market. From regulatory shortcomings and political instability to investor distrust, the landscape is fraught with obstacles that necessitate immediate attention and remedial action. As stakeholders strive to navigate these turbulent waters, concerted efforts towards enhancing law enforcement, restoring investor confidence, and fostering political stability are imperative.
