Investing in Istanbul

An investment in Istanbul is one of the surest ways to place your money in the property market in Turkey. As Turkey’s commercial hub/ capital, there is a constant increase in demand for properties. Istanbul likewise has some of the most modern units. The only challenge about life in Istanbul that people often complain about is how crowded it is as people flock in and out of the city. You will agree that in itself is good news for property investors.

Here are some reasons that count

  • Istanbul has many Turkey heritage sites and tourist attraction centres. This means there will be constant movement in and out of the city. The famous Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque attract thousands of visitors annually. Let alone other sites, such as the Galata Tower, the Miniaturk, the Bosphorus bridge, etc., cause city traffic. These historic hotspots guarantee that properties purchased in the area will have constant visitors.
  • Istanbul is likewise the ex-pat centre in Turkey. It is the most populous of Turkey’s cities with the highest expatriate population, with about one and a half million ex-pats settling in the town alone. The thing about ex-pats and luxury apartments is that they patronise this category of properties a lot, so turnover is inevitable.
  • Lastly, real estate in Istanbul is always accentuating; being the capital hub, many businesses, expatriates and economic activities continue to take place daily, and that causes an improvement in the creation of wealth, many of which will be invested in a shelter.

Investing in Istanbul is an old trend that will always continue because the city is a honey spot with many attractions, job opportunities, a fair and decent life at a reasonable cost and quite open to all walks of people (Although Muslims are the majority).
