How to Choose an Apartment in Islamabad 


Moving into a new space is equally exciting and stressful. You want everything of Properties For Sale in Islamabad to be perfect from location to price and other amenities. Based on my experience, before finding an apartment and signing a contract, there are a few things that you must understand.


So many details can easily make us lose track, so let us serve you guide for finding your ideal apartment


Focus on Location


Location is the foremost important thing while searching for a flat. If you are looking for a place near to your workplace, educational institute or family, then make sure that you find a place that is a few minutes’ drive away. Take into account the traffic during rush hour. A journey of 10 minutes can turn into 30 minutes due to traffic jam. To be on safe side, you can use GPS and track the traffic and time yourself.

Moreover, find a place that has a view of your choice. If you are looking for a peaceful area in Islamabad then you can search for an apartment in sector E. that sector of Islamabad is full of lush green beauty and free from industrialization. Khudadad heights are located in this sector and offer flats at reasonable prices for sale and rent.


Find ideal layout


Depending upon the needs and size of your family, you can choose the layout or dimensions of the flat. Always keep your needs in view and then decide which type of apartment suits you. If you enjoy hosting parties and get together then keep an eye for a larger area designated to lounge or entertainment area.


Focus on space


During apartment and home tours, record every detail of the property. Notice that if the paint needs freshening or not, look for damages and make sure that landlord takes note of it as well. There are high chances that he can dismiss himself from the responsibility of repairing damages once you sign the contract. It is better to discuss these matters with him before time so that he will too know that these damages aren’t your fault.


Furthermore, while examining the flat, pay close attention to storage space in your apartment. There should be enough space to cater to your need.

  1. You May Have Less Residential Space:The benefits of a balcony depend upon the size of the balcony as well as the size of the apartment. Usually, a balcony is beneficial only if the available residential space in the apartment is sufficient for your needs. Otherwise, a balcony may occupied additional space and leave you with less residential space. 
  2. It May Affects Your Privacy:you can not enjoy full privacy at the balcony of your apartment as your neighbors may observe you.
  3. Safety Issues: The existence of a balcony can rise many safety issues if you have kids in your family. 
  4. Rules of the Society:The rules of housing society may restrict to spend time on the balcony of your apartment. You may not be able to hang over there. 


I hope these pros and cons of a balcony will help you to make your decision. The benefits of a balcony may overweight the demerits as you can easily overcome the demerits of having a balcony. But one thing to remember, the final choice of an apartment must be according to your personal preferences as preferences for a balcony can vary from person to person. If you are living in Islamabad, the balcony of your apartment can offer you the eye-catching views of Margala hills. Apartments in the E-11 sector must be your first choice to live if you love the natural beauties of Islamabad.
