Agro Farming Scheme vs. Gulberg Islamabad

People have always found owning a farmhouse in a scenic location surrounded by natural greenery fascinating. In the past, the elite class considered farmhouses a status symbol; only the super-rich could afford one. However, in present times, particularly after the pandemic, farmhouses have become a more feasible option for retirement homes, second homes, or weekend getaways. Interestingly, Islamabad’s farmhouses exhibit promising capital gains and high rental income, helping the farmhouse culture thrive in twin cities.
