Top 5 Benefits of Naya Pakistan Housing Program:
Start of Public Housing in Pakistan
Pakistan is a nation where public housing was not included in the government policies. Indeed there were some efforts to provide the affordable housing by the government but the scale was so small that the general public couldn’t benefit these limited initiatives. Mostly housing schemes were launched by private developers who sold the plots or houses on installments. But first time in Pakistan the government has started the mother of all housing schemes; 5 Million Homes.
Best Solution to Housing Crisis
The housing crisis has reached an alarming level in Pakistan. We need 12 million new housing units to solve the housing shortage. Pakistan needs 1 million new housing units every year but we are building just 100,000 homes annually. Five million affordable homes will solve the housing crisis in Pakistan. Pakistani population is increasing by five million every year that needs one million houses. In long term, this affordable housing initiatives will end the housing issues in Pakistan.
Economy will Boost
The construction industry is associated with 40 other industries. The construction of 5 million affordable housing units will benefit many industries from brick kilns to PVC pipes factories. This is the largest public project in the history of Pakistan. If we use all local materials for the construction of five million houses, it can start the Pakistani Industrial Revolution. This mega project will not only boost the economy of Pakistan but millions of jobs will be created.
Relief for Home Buyers
Buying a home is a distant dream in Pakistan. Due to un-affordable home prices, the numbers of renters are increasing whereas home ownership is in decline. Many low to middle-class people who were struggling to buy a home will get relief. Now it is very easy to buy a home as prices are very low and people have to pay the money through mortgages. Therefore 5 million affordable homes are like jackpots for genuine home buyers.
Property Prices will Cool
Property prices are very high in Pakistan. Even many professionals can’t buy a decent home. The construction of 5 million homes will crash the property prices across Pakistan, as most people will prefer to buy government houses. But the people who will not get the allotment of government homes will be able to buy homes in the private sector at very affordable rates. Therefore the construction of affordable homes will stabilize the overheated property market.
