Real estate investment returns in Turkey compared to other investments

When asked about the returns of real estate investment in Turkey, its amount, percentage, etc..., you may find answers that cause more confusion, between marketing sources far from logic, that dazzle you with unusual numbers, to sell you the illusion before they sell you the property.

Or among other sources and answers that tell you about immature experiences, trying to keep you away from this market.

In pursuit of accuracy and credibility, we, Imtilak Real Estate, find it is necessary to clarify some points objectively and unambiguously, based on our leading position in the Turkish real estate sector, and our experience spanning more than 10 years, and through a professional team that is the largest and most qualified in the field of Turkish real estate.

Is real estate investment in Turkey recommended?

Statistics issued by the Turkish Statistical Institutions show the amount of demand for the real estate market of all kinds until recent years have witnessed huge numbers in real estate sales, which indicates the dynamic market reality, especially in hot real estate areas near mega projects, transportation, business centers, etc.

If we check these statistics, we will notice the importance of this investment sector in Turkey, especially in the major cities whose prices have recorded rapid increases during the past two years.

Someone might think: This is nothing but a real estate boom or bubble!

Here the clear answer to this point comes to you from a holistic view of the real estate market in Turkey, buying, selling, and renting, to notice directly how weak the supply is in the face of increasing demand, and the urgent need for more real estate product that meets the growing need.

Is real estate investment in Turkey profitable?

To begin with, before answering this question; we should declare that not all real estate is on the same scale, and a property in a remote area cannot be treated as a property in a hot spot in the real estate market.

Hence, you must know that the right choice of property intelligently is the final judgment in answering this question.

Therefore, the quality of your choice of property may allow you to profit more than you expect, quoting from experiences we have experienced in which the rates of price increase within a very short period amounted to approximately 30% of the price of the property itself, and this is undoubtedly related to the investor’s intelligence and his successful choice.

Despite the global Coronavirus crisis, the real estate sector was the least affected economic sector in Turkey, to the extent that the wave of closures contributed to rising real estate prices due to the delay in the implementation of many projects, which led to an increase in demand with a decrease in implementation.

Where the rental prices of apartments in Istanbul and many other cities recorded increases, sometimes reaching more than 70%, in parallel with the Coronavirus crisis and the decline in the exchange rate of the Turkish lira. The vitality of the Turkish real estate market is also shown by the new home price index in Turkey for December 2021, which has increased by 115.10% since the beginning of its study in 2010. Not to mention the dozens of other statistics and studies that real estate ownership carries in its news and blog from its official sources in a neutral manner.

This type of comparison is not without prejudice, given the fluctuations in the markets, the effects of inflation, and the exchange rate of the lira sometimes being unbalanced, and there are reasons and causes that play with the criteria and balances of investments.
