When considering a property purchase in the wonderful city of Istanbul, firstly you need to decide why you are buying and your budget, Is it for pure investment for capital appreciation or rental yields? or is it a lifestyle change or holiday home for you and your family?
Istanbul is like any other major city in the world, city centre and sea view properties come with a premium price tag, quite often with six-figure tags.
Scores of overseas investors have zoned in on the city over recent years purchasing properties all across the city, cashing in on both short and long term rentals. Keen-eyed investors are buying off plan properties at launch prices where property prices increase by at least 50% by the completion dates giving you guaranteed capital appreciation in very short space of time.
The are you choose is a very important factor along with your budget, home buyers with a high budget can purchase luxury Bosphorus properties, though low budget buyers should be looking in the new fashionable inner city areas of Beylikduzu, Esenyurt west of Ataturk International airport.
