Reasons Why You Should Buy a Used Car

According to a survey Pakistani’s spent more than 30-35 lacs on new vehicles. Meanwhile, according to a report, an average used car cost just over 10 lacs. That new car smell sure has expensive air freshener. Apart from this, there are many other reasons to buy a new car. At the same time, it makes sense to buy a used car it will save you from unwanted expenses.  I have compiled 10 reasons to buy a used car.

Save Money

First and the most obvious reason is saving money. You will save lacs by purchasing a used car. If your budget is tight and you can’t buy a new car, you will be able to buy a used car easily within that budget. It helps you to keep your budget maintained. But if you have money, you can use it somewhere else like buying something fancy or investing it somewhere reliable.

According to the survey report, your car cost decreased by 46% within 3 years. It does not matter who many miles you ride it around.


Buying a new car as an investment is a very bad idea. Cars last longer and longer but they still lose their value in a very short period of time.  While there are some models that can handle depreciation better than others. According to a report a car can lose up to 50% of its value within 9 years. So it is not a good idea to buy a new car.


If you buy a new car, you have a wide range of variety. You can choose according to your taste. According to a survey, every year approximately 300 models are offered on sale. We all have different taste. There are also chances that may be the car we want is not made anymore. But luckily we can find that model from the used car market. For examples, there are not many small pickups made nowadays but you can find a wide range of it from the used car market.


Remember the 1970’s vehicles? Those vehicles do not last long as compared to vehicles nowadays. According to a survey a car lifespan changes from 5 years to 11.5 years of age. The auto industry predicts that by 2020, the lifespan of automobiles increases by 15%.

Clearly, Modern vehicles are built to last longer, which means you can save your millions from buying a used car.

Lower Insurance Costs

Your car’s value is the main item that your insurance company considers. If you buy a new car, insurance costs too much but if you buy a used car it will also cost you lower insurance.

Cheaper Registration Fees

Older cars often cost less register fee but it also depends on where you live. There are some states that charged the same fee no matter what kind of car you are registering. But mostly vary their cost based on car’s weight, model, age, power etc. The used car also saved you from paying less tax as the used car price is low.

Final Consideration

Buying a used car is much riskier than buying a new car. Because you don’t know where the car has bee and how it was treated. And also there are no guarantees if a problem arises as compared to a new car.

There is an old saying: You don’t get something for anything? That also applies when you decided to save millions by buying a used car rather than a new car.

The good news is that today’s vehicles are better than ever. They are reliable and most importantly you can check the vehicle history report containing the important details about the car’s past.

Looking for Recommendation?

If you are looking for a car showroom near Islamabad and surrounding, i would like to recommend “The Car Spot” showroom in F-11 Markaz, Islamabad. It is the best showroom in the entire area. The prices of the vehicles are reasonable and the condition of the vehicles is excellent. If you want to define vehicles condition in  numbers, i will give it 9.5 over 10.  You can also find the latest models there. You can also try a demo ride. The car Spot showroom is a brand in that area. I myself bought 2 used cars from there during last 5 years. Both are working completely fine. There is no damage or hardware fault.

Tips to increase Fuel Economy of Your Car

The is the top rated question you will listen to every buyer what is the fuel consumption and economy of this car. Due to a high value in oil prices locally and globally, now people are more anxious about buying a car with tremendous fuel economy and mileage.

If you want to become a “hyper-miler”, then follow these tips I will help you to use the last drop of fuel in your tank.


  • A vehicle that is not maintained properly on a regular schedule will consume 20 percent more fuel. Most of us tolerate car maintenance and they complain about their fuel consumption.So if you go for a regular routine checkup then you can save 20-25 percent of fuel.
  • Make sure you have changed the oil in time and also have to change the air filter and spark plugs as well by replacing the air filter and spark plugs during a regular routine checkup not only helps your car last longer and helps your engine burn fuel more efficiently.
  • Underinflated tires burn more fuel. If tires are 7-9 pounds underinflated (a normal condition) rolling resistance of tires increases by 5-6 percent. SO you should check your tires pressure at least fortnightly or monthly because by doing so you can save 2-3 percent of your fuel which will lead to a good fuel average.
  • Make sure that the wheels are aligned properly because a bad wheel alignment may affect the fuel economy.
  • Whenever you put extra weight it automatically effects the engine and takes more power which means more fuel consumption. You should remove extra carrying kits such as roof boxes and bike racks and the extra luggage that is for no regular use. So always clean up your trunk.


Driving Techniques:

  • Use the cruise control when appropriate, because on highway cruise control can save up to 4-5 percent of your fuel.
  • Don’t let the car be idle for more than 30 seconds because it may consume 1-1.5 liters from 4 liters of fuel per hour. Modern engine consumes less fuel turning off and restarting the engine than idling for some time.
  • When the engine is cold you should on the engine for at least 20 seconds this will build oil pressure, and you can drive away. But due to lack of knowledge, some of us start the engine and drove the car which leads up 100 percent fuel wastage.
  • Drive in a highest possible gear without putting pressure on the engine, this is a fuel efficient way of driving. If you travel in fast ways on low gears then it can consume 40-45 percent of more fuel. For example, if you are driving at a speed of 60-70 km/h, a vehicle will use more fuel in third gear then it would be in fifth gear.
  • Drive in smoothly and a smarter way. By applying slow throttle and avoiding heavy breaks, so you can reduce fuel consumption.
  • While driving doesn’t put your left foot on brake paddle. The little pressure might put “mechanical drag” on components. This may result in additional fuel usage to overcome this dragging.
  • Always choose a silk and a smooth road, because if the roads are uneven it will affect the fuel mileage.
  • Sometime when the roof and the windows are down it creates aerodynamic drag that causes an engine to work harder, as a result, it affects the fuel economy.
  • Use the motor oil that supports or suite your car, the engine is designed to work with best specific type. If you use heavier weight oil, then it might create friction and cause the engine to work harder and burn more fuel.
  • You should check your fuel cap seal sometimes it is broken down, and it allows oxygen to leak into the fuel This causes an excessive air to enter into the engine, as a result, it pulls fuel from the tank, and it automatically affects your fuel average.



These are the instruction that will help you in fuel economy, you should overcome these issue, and it will help you out to have a better fuel economy. You don’t have to buy a brand new fuel-efficient car to save you on fuel. There is plenty you can do to increase your fuel average, and by using these tips it will help you to save lots of money.

How to Maintain Your House When it’s Not in Use

Majority of us have a vacation house where we spend our summer with family and friends. Also, some buy houses with an extra income or investment. In either case, that house remains vacant for a longer period. During that time, due to storms or dust homes face damage as there is no one to detect the problem in time and repair it. And repairing can charge you in thousands as well as the value of the house also decrease. One must take steps to protect your vacation and investment house even when you are not there for the care. I am going to share some steps how to protect your house form such damage.

Inspect and Clean Monthly

Best thing is to go to your house every month for cleaning. Fix a day for it. And prepare a checklist for the work. It does not take much time. You can do it by yourself if you have time.

You need to make a checklist for kitchen, doors, terrace, cracks, gutter, and driveway especially.

Hire a caretaker

If you don’t have time for cleaning by yourself please hire a reliable caretaker for your house. Caretakers should be reliable so he/she can do it properly even when you are not there. Please ensure that caretaker is reliable by verifying his/her documents.

Caretaker duties should include regular cleaning of the house, taking care of the utilities, keeping outdoor clean and if there is any issue he/she should have to inform you of time. Also, you need to check the house on vacations.

Give House for Rent

The best way to save your vacation house form damage is to give it on rent. You will also earn from it. First, you need to register a proper rental agreement and all facts to avoid any false situation in future. As the house is your vacation house, you need to define the rental period so that you can also use it in summer.

Another advantage of renting your home is, it will stay in use when you don’t have time for it.

Keep Things Under Cover

If your house keeps vacant for months, you must take care of everything inside it. Keep your home windows closed and locked. Also, cover the future with sheets to prevent it from dust and any damage. Keep your windows and doors sealed to prevent dust from coming in.

Install a Security System

Another good way to keep a check on you vacant or vacation house when you are not there is through security cameras or security system that notifies you in case of any break-in or storm. There are many surveillance systems with wide range devices to do it properly but it costs you much.

How Can Izloo Classified Help?

Types of Properties to Avoid while Buying

You cannot buy any property without research. It needs proper research and many factors considered before buying. Factors like location, market value, facilities and other real estate factors. Following are some factors you should have to avoid while buying the property.

Don’t go for undeveloped areas

It is the era of housing societies in real estate. Don’t buy any property in under construction housing society. As there is no guarantee of proper development plans and documentation. Sometimes, people start housing societies without legal documentation and it costs you, your money as well as time.

So, also go for developed areas and reputed projects like DHA.

Check out the Facilities

The most important factor is security when it comes to facilities. People should only go for the housing societies where proper security and maintenance is provided. This feature is necessary because of the current circumstances of the country.

Another important factor is the area with low crime ratio.  According to agents, buyer and investors always search for areas of security and personal safety.

Check Noise levels & Convenience

Always buy property where the noise level is minimum or the area has low traffic. Commercial areas are not suitable for homes because of the high traffic and noise. Homes near schools are also a bad idea. You should have to face traffic jam issue in Moring and afternoon and also it is hard for you to maintain the outdoor area.

Avoid Property near a drain

According to research, the worst scenario is buying property to the location near an open drain. You will face sanitary risks if you buy property new an open drain. It also costs you health issues.

Projects Failure in Pakistan

According to a survey Multipurpose Cooperative Housing Society, NADRA Employees Cooperative Housing Society, Islamic University Staff Cooperative Housing Society, Banks Employees Cooperative Housing Society, Christian Multipurpose Cooperative Housing Society, Rail Garden Employees Cooperative Housing Society and the Baltistan Cooperative Housing Society, Islamabad failed because of liquidation problem. All these projects are from the year 2017 and failed before their launch.

Other major reasons for housing projects failure are low cost and bribe culture. Due to these reasons, several projects failed in Karachi. Due to bribe culture, the cost of the projects increased and people can’t afford it.

These are the main factors that one should have to consider before buying a property. If you want to share some new factors please share in comments.

How to keep Your Apartment Warm in winters

How to keep Your Apartment Warm in winters

As we all know the weather condition of Pakistan. It is extremely hot in summers and cold in winters as the average room temperature is about 4 degrees to 5 degrees during winters. This kind of temperature is a very big problem for the people living in apartments. As we all know due to gas shortage we also can’t use heaters to control room temperature. I am going to share some tips which I used to keep my room and apartment warm in winters. Hope you will like it.

Close the Doors properly

The idea is to stop ventilation of any kind. Close all the doors and windows tightly and be sure you have stopped any kind of ventilation. You can also fill the space near windows with silicone for good results. This is the easiest and affordable way of insulating your apartment.

Use Thick Curtains

Thick Curtains protect your apartment from losing heat through the windows. Curtains with the thermal lining are cheap and affordable. You can also use double curtains for good results.

Clockwise Fan rotation

No one knows this little apartment hacks. If you want to keep the room warmer, make sure that your fans have a high speed and clockwise rotation. Clockwise rotation pulls the cool breeze up and mixes it with warm air and then warmer air pushed down and you feel warmer.

Let the sunlight come in

Sunlight is the ideal and free source of heat and it also keeps your apartment warmer. On a sunny day in winter, open all the blinds, doors, curtains and let the sunlight come in as much as possible. The natural light warms up the entire apartment. When the rooms become warmer, close the curtains, blinds, and doors. This will trap the heat inside and you can keep your apartment warmer for many hours.

Furniture Position

Another tip is “use of proper placement of furniture”. If you are using heater, radiator or any fireplace. Place the furniture in distance because furniture absorbs and block heat and you cannot keep your room warm.

So, these are some ways I used to keep my room warmer in winters. Which one do you like most? What are some other methods you are using or have used in past to keep your home warmer? Share your precious views with us in the comments section.

Top 5 Mistakes Property Buyers Make the First Time

So you have decided to buy a property and it is a very big deal if you are new to real estate business. Real estate is a market with many ups & downs and a lot of procedures need to be followed and checked before any kind of agreement. First of all, the buyer needs to do research on the property, documents, market trend and market value of the property. Here I am going to define some common mistakes that buyers male first time and also going to tell you how they can be prevented in the first place.

Assuming You Can Afford  

First and the most important factor is “money” when you are planning to buy a property. At first, you need to define your budget. Most of the buyers do not look into the long-term when buying a property in installments. And if you want to buy a property in installments please check your saving as the income may change with time and there is a possibility you can’t afford the installments in future. So, do not buy a property on an installment that will take a large portion of your income. Research the property which is available in smaller installments and that will help you to fix your budget and you will also be able to save some for future.

Not Checking the Market Trends

This is the most common mistake by buyers. They don’t research deeply on the market trend of the area they are planning to buy. If you want to buy a property in any area it is good if you go through the last year performance of the project to see how is the overall property market and also is there a market interest in that area.
