$5b Forex Increase and What It Means For Real Estate (and Overseas Investors!)

For overseas Pakistanis considering a real estate investment in their homeland, recent economic developments offer a compelling reason to take action. Pakistan’s foreign exchange reserves have witnessed a record increase of over $5 billion over the past fiscal year (FY24), and property investors are wondering what this means for their assets. 


Here at One Homes, we’re always looking out for our clients’ best interests, which is why we monitor and adapt to any developments: you can keep track of this on our blog. If you’re an overseas Pakistani looking to invest in a luxury apartment in Lahore or Islamabad, find out how the forex reserves affect you.


Understanding Foreign Exchange Reserves


Before diving into the implications, let’s understand what foreign exchange reserves are. A nation’s central bank holds these reserves, typically in the form of foreign currencies, bonds, and other financial instruments. A healthy level of forex reserves is a sign of stability in the exchange rate, which directly impacts overseas investments.


Pakistan’s foreign exchange reserves have seen a remarkable increase of over $5 billion in FY24. This positive trend is attributed to several factors, one of which is an improvement in trade balance, which also contributes to forex reserves.


Benefits for Real Estate Investors


A stronger forex reserve translates to several advantages for real estate investors. A stable exchange rate protects your investment by minimizing currency fluctuations. You’ll have a clearer understanding of the rupee value against your home currency, allowing for better financial planning.


Improved forex reserves also boost investor confidence in the economy. This translates to higher returns for overseas Pakistanis who buy property here.
