Real estate sales to foreigner boomed in Turkey.
With the new legislations, cutting the minimum investment amount to get the Turkish citizenship boosted the Turkish real estate market.
According to Turkish Statistical Institute ( TUIK ), compare to last year, sales to foreigner has been increased by 87%.
New investment opportunities such as dropping the investment amount of getting Turkish citizenship to 250.000 USD in September 2018, helped a lot to boost the sales to foreigners.

Mr Abdullat Koc, board member of PropertyTR has mentioned that foreign real estate buyers were very much motivated with the new attractions of Turkish Passport and as a result invested heavily.
Mr Koc also added that real estate in Turkey got cheaper in USD terms and advantages of having Turkish passport played significant role in the booming demand from overseas property buyers.
Mr Khalil Kouki who is one of the senior real estate expert at PropertyTR says “Over the last couple of years, the real estate market in Turkey picked up attraction for Foreign Investors due to several reasons: buyers took advantage of the depreciation of the Currency specially in the last nine months. Another important factor played a major role in this boom is the decision of the government to decrease the amount of money for people who want to apply for Turkish citizenship through buying properties. Those factors have encouraged investors to accelerate their decision to make the purchases but the main factor is their faith in the Turkish economy and the future of the country so they see it as an opportunity to make the highest profit "
