Turkey shows an increase in housing with the creation of a favourable environment for foreign investment, especially in recent years. The interest of foreigners has further increased with the introduction of Turkish citizenship by investment. Recently, increasing demand has reached record levels. As it seen from this case, Turkey’s investment potential is very high. Turkey’s financial and cultural centre of Istanbul is ranked first in housing investment potential.
Real estate investments are particularly concentrated in districts such as Başakşehir, Esenyurt and Çekmeköy, where the land stock is higher than other districts. Then, It increases towards districts such as Kadıköy, Beyoğlu, Kağıthane, Kartal and Maltepe. First of all, it should be observed where the companies that make housing projects attach importance to the districts of Istanbul which will increase in value. In this regard, districts such as Ataşehir, Bayrampaşa, Esenler, Beyoğlu, Kadıköy and Maltepe stand out among the new places that first draw attention.
Likewise, places such as Sancaktepe, Ümraniye, Kozyatağı, Büyükdere, Kartal, Topkapı, Yenibosna and Basın Ekspres take part among the regions that are valued by further increasing the existing transportation potential with new projects.
Valuable districts far from the center
When the districts of Istanbul which will be increased in value are examined, it is seen that the places located in the Bosphorus and its surroundings, which can be considered as the centre of the city, stand out in the past years. It is thought that the places outside the city centre will increase in value with Marmaray, Metrobus and similar new rail system projects. Among these, some places have become the centre of interest especially with Istanbul Airport and Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge.
Areas such as Beykoz, Sarıyer, Eyüp, Gaziosmanpaşa, Esenler, and Küçükçekmece draw attention because they are places where transportation connections meet with passage and connection roads Places such as Silivri and Büyükçekmece are expected to increase in value soon. It is predicted that these regions will gain a much greater speed with the implementation of the Halkalı-Kapıkule high- speed train line project.
