The official collector rates of plots in phase 8 is very low as compared to phase 5 and 6, this also adds up to high trading activity in phase 8.  There is huge gap between market value and official collector rate of plots in DHA as is all properties in PAKISTAN), but at the same time phases other than phase 8 are all populated and well populated making it more secure and harmonious.
