If you are considering buying property in Turkey but are not sure if this is the right move, we can make sure it is the right one and also provide helpful advice for a hassle-free purchase. Evidence of Turkey’s popularity as a destination for holiday homes or permanent residences is in the statistics. In 2019, foreigners bought 45,000 thousand apartments and villas. Communities of immigrants scattered around towns, cities, and villages are also thriving, which now stand as a worthy competitor to other countries for overseas living.
In our business as Best House Turkey, people often ask us if foreigners can buy property in Turkey. The answer always resonates, yes. Thousands of foreign nationals legally own apartments, villas, land, and commercial real estate. Foreigners can buy a property and own 30 hectares or up to 10% of the territory, except in military zones designated by the government. With that in mind, let’s hear from Yasin Us, CEO of Best House Turkey, on how a first-time buyer can get started.
