Why Turkey?

Its diverse beauty, with a history of modernity and sophistication, that's Turkey. The city of Istanbul, which has the continents of Asia and Europe with its originality, beauty, and splendor, became an important tourist destination.

Turkey's prosperity at all levels has been encouraging to attract all kinds of investments and attracted many businesses from all over the world. Turkey has thus proven to be one of the world's strongest economies.

On the other hand, the stabilization of Turkey's political position played a major role, especially after the 2018 elections, in gaining the confidence of foreign investments. Turkey has maintained its democratic political entity despite the crises that have not affected its internal security and regional stability.

Then came a series of additional incentives, such as the possibility of getting Turkish citizenship, has had a positive impact on the Turkish real estate market, attracting large numbers of those wishing to take advantage of these important advantages.

What real estate do foreigners have the right to invest?

Article 35 of the Turkish Property Law, 2012, on property rights, concerning the ownership of foreigners in Turkey, provides that a foreigner is entitled to own property on the condition that what he buys is immovable and is not located within a military zone or any land belonging to the State in general.

Some laws have been enacted for certain nationalities, which have been given the right to buy property specifically for housing.

How and where to choose your best property?

The answer to this question differs depending on the need of those who ask, but it is indisputable that beauty in Turkey is not exclusive to one place to another and Turkey’s regions and its cities have received a great diversity.

Every city in Turkey has its own advantage. If you want to get closer to the center of the economy, the city of Istanbul is the capital of the Turkish economy, its beating heart, and for anyone looking for rest and recreation, his options will be various in Istanbul and other cities.

Is it now the best time to buy an apartment in Turkey?

The Turkish real estate market has maintained its price stability. Today's exchange rates in Turkey have not reflected the selling price of new residences significantly.

If we adopt the data for February mainly in the comparison over the past years compared to the current year, we see a rise in prices of new apartments for the year 2018 compared to the price in the previous year 2017, equivalent to 3.52% ...

While the increase in this year 2019 was only 2.62 % over the year 2018.

If we compare the period 2018 - 2019 2017 - 2018 we notice that the only type of property whose price has increased is: 1 + 1 apartments and the increase in the price of these apartments is equivalent to 1.71 % to 2.13 % because of high demands for apartments of this type.

A number of contractors recently pointed out that the current period is the most appropriate time for those who want to buy an apartment in Turkey, stressing that the high cost of the property resulting from the high dollar exchange rate did not reflect on the prices of apartments equally, so the winner is the one who buys A house in this period, taking advantage of the current situation of the real estate market, which was not affected by the high dollar exchange rate.

Law of Ownership in Turkey

Is it right to say that the prices of apartments were not affected by the high dollar exchange?

A number of specialists have compared real estate prices, benefiting from advertisements, and depending on the new home price index published by the Reıdın Real Estate Investment and GYODER Real Estate Investment & Property Association as a benchmark for comparison.

Comparing the prices of real estate and apartments in recent years and the like this year, it was clear that the increase in apartment prices has seen a slight increase, which makes the idea of owning an apartment in Turkey a good idea, and a successful investment now.

Tips for owning a property in Turkey

With the advancement of real estate systems in Turkey, there are some tips for those interested in buying their new property, which may help them select the best option.

Choose your real estate agent carefully, the right choice will give you the credibility and trust you need in a country you do not know.

You can do a little research on the Internet to help you choose the right agent, consider others evaluation the company's performance, and how much confidence it gained from their former customers by reading comments and assessments on social media.

Looking for the agent's history in the real estate market, and ensure the quality of services provided before and after the sale.

Choose the location that suits you best, study available transport options, and discover the facilities and services surrounding your chosen property. These options add value to your new property.

Choose the right time to buy your property. It may be best to stay away from the peak season, ensuring that you have many options available to compare. The peak is often during the summer months, for example, where people change their places of residence after establishing a new family, or change the place of their work, or even to change children's schools and universities.

Choosing the right time, away from peak times, not only gives you more options; it may help lower the price of the property as well.

Be aware of documents relating to the contract for buying your new house. It is very important to check what is actually contained in the official real estate documents.

Some agents may seek quick profit by claiming ownership of a property and trying to sell it at a higher price while trying to do another purchase from their actual owner or even trying to sell the same property to several buyers with the aim of catching the highest price among them, or other purposes of fraud and illegal ways.

We recommend you to choose projects that provide a smart home system, with advanced technical capabilities, shortening the time and carrying out vital tasks on behalf of their owners according to the latest industrial smart systems.
