What are Turkey's Top Real Estate Investment Areas in 2022?

With global inflation rising and the COVID crisis and its variants entering third year, investment in the real estate sector by 2022 has proved to be a haven for those wishing to save their money value from significantly higher inflation levels.

Turkey's real estate sector was the most distinctive in the global real estate market in 2021. Real estate in Turkey has maintained its purchasing value through a significant rise in prices exceeding 100%, in parallel with high demand rates and an active movement of buying and selling by Turkish and foreign citizens.

During the pre-2021 periods, property owners in Turkey made significant gains on the value of their properties in many Turkish provinces by 2022, led by Istanbul, demonstrating the theory of safe real estate investment in Turkey.

In this regard, rental revenues in Turkey have increased over the past year and at the beginning of this year, increasing the reliability of investors in the real estate investment sector, which is adapted to high inflation rates and is resistant to various economic crises.

Based on the above, real estate ownership experts have chosen the most important and best Turkish regions and cities that achieve profitability in real estate investment, as follows:

1. Istanbul

Istanbul is associated with high investment value and is the first city in terms of investment value in all sectors in general and the real estate sector in particular.

According to real estate reports issued by official authorities in Turkey, the rate of increase in real estate prices in Istanbul in 2021 was 95%, while the international real estate agency Knight Frank monitored Istanbul's position in the ninth place in the world value of investment globally.

Experts are likely to blame the increase in real estate prices in Istanbul for the high prices of imported raw materials due to the low exchange rates of the Turkish lira, as well as increased demand rates from Turks and foreigners, especially after the reduction of bank interest rates by the Central Bank of Turkey.

Over the past five years, statistics have shown that real estate prices for sale and purchase and rental revenue have increased in Istanbul's real estate market over the past five years.

Experts, therefore, report that Istanbul is one of the first major cities to be on the throne of Turkish cities in terms of investment feasibility in the Turkish real estate market.

In the past two years, Imtilak Real Estate ownership has noted an increase in real estate prices in the city, reaching a minimum of 8% and a maximum of 23%.
