Defining a good locality is pretty easy, as the image that instantly pops up in your head is of a green, serene and clean area. Safety, proximity and connectivity to important areas also are points which need a closer look when choosing the place of refuge.

Also chosen as the best place to live with family, DHA harbours 5-10 marla houses, which can cost anything between 30 thousand PKR to 2 lakhs PKR.
Lying slightly high on the ambit, the E-11 district of Islamabad opens at a rate of 75 thousand PKR for a 5 marla accommodation and at 85 PKR for a 10 marla house.
