Most Pakistanis in Karachi rent apartments as their primary place of residence. However as the economy grows more and more people are interested in buying property. This increased interest makes overall property values rise. The neighborhood of Bahadurabad is no exception. The purchase price of an apartment or house here is on the rise and compared to newer developments such as Bahria Town they are relatively expensive. But compared to other more central parts of the city such as Clifton and DHA Phase 8 Bahadurabad is very cost-effective.
For those who are not ready to buy house but still want to upgrade from an apartment there are also houses for rent in Bahadurabad though less so. Renting a house here is very affordable and average rents per square yard are close to the averages for more expensive neighborhoods like Clifton.
The relatively low cost of houses for sale in Bahadurabad Karachi makes it a very attractive neighborhood to invest. Another attractive aspect of Bahadurabad is its highly centralized and self-sufficient layout. It is centered upon the intersection of the Alamgir Road and the Bahadur Shah Zafar Road. Situated at this intersection is the famed Bahadurabad Market which draws people from around the city of Karachi.
Due the presence of the market at the center of the neighborhood Bahadurabad has a very commercial aspect. However it is also a popular residential area that has many schools and mosques nearby. The Saylani Welfare Masjid and the Qurtaba Masjid are Bahadurabad's most central mosques and are located on either side of Alamgir Road. Among the many schools in Bahadurabad there are several Montessori and international schools for both boys and girls and all age levels. The neighborhood has a good mix of residential and commercial spaces. This plus the relatively low cost of houses make it a good investment and a great place to live.
