Abstract: The current study examines the effect of factors influencing the prices of real estate in Quetta city. Hypothetically, this study is based upon five observed factors(urbanization, refugees’ influx, monetary, lack of investment alternatives and inflow of foreign remittances) in relation to the prices of real estate. Questionnaire developed on the basis of above variables were administered to a heterogeneous sample of 50property dealers and Quetta Development Authority.

The results revealed that the prices of real estate in the region have been on an increasing trend and strong influence of all variables especially of government’s monetary and fiscal polices and urbanization was found significant on the prices of real estate in Quetta.
