    The UK has a reciprocal arrangement with Turkey so the buying process is straightforward. Turkey allows foreigners to purchase property provided Turks can purchase property in the buyer’s country. The Turkish real estate sector, offers greater opportunities to investors,in the last decades.
    The entry of global actors into the real estate market is increasing the competitiveness of the sector, while massive mergers and acquisitions taking place help its expansion and overall growth rates. As Turkey progresses in its EU membership, the essential legislative reforms introduced have made investing in the real estate market even easier and more profitable. The amendments to the Land Registry Law, the Draft Mortgage Law and the redrafting of tax laws are also designed to improve the competitiveness of the Turkish property sector.

    Turkey Real Estate

    The real estate business in turkey doesn’t suffer because the Turkish government provides them an opportunity to get investment from foreign investors. Most of the companies have gone on record and have praised the Turkish regime and their commitment to make the country’s economy a beacon of hope for all the people in the world. However, they want the government to further lower the restrictions that are applied on foreigners coming to the country. It is their suggestion that the stay period for the foreigners needs to the increased from only 3 months to at least 5 to 10 years. According to them, Turkey has a massive chance in the existing conditions to boost its economy and become an economical force as the Arab investors are taking keen interest in buying properties here. The proposed change in laws is going to help Turkey in alluring more investors to come here and buy properties bringing with them new opportunities of business as well.

    Is the Investment Really Worth it?

    The views of the Turkish developers are not that misguided as some people might think. The foreign investment is really proving to be a very valuable thing for the Turkish economy which is going through its golden periods these days. The numbers also back up their claim that many Arab investors buying property in Istanbul are willing to buy more if the rules are relaxed a bit further. According to reports, only in the month of May last year, the investment made in the Turkish real estate by foreign investors amounted to $1.1 billion which is four times the investment that was made in the whole year of 2011. The bulk of this investment came from the Arab and GCC countries and this is only the beginning of it. If the rules are eased up a bit further, there is every chance that the investors are going to start investing in the long term as well which would mean even greater investments.

    What Lies Ahead

    The reason why the Turkish government is a bit hesitant about increasing the period of stay of the foreigners is that in their eyes, the value of the Turkish citizenship is very high and they do not want to give it up any time soon. It is the view of the government that they are going to ease up the rules bit and bit only and are going to monitor how the investments come in. If the studies show that the investments in the real estate business are really increasing with the easing of the laws then there definitely will be changes made in the system and the Arab investors buying property in Istanbul are going to be provided Turkish citizenship. The current scenario looks set for Turkey’s real estate business to receive a lot of investment in the coming days if the laws are in fact bent that much that the investors are provided Turkish citizenship. This would provide the investors a lot of incentive and they would look to buy more properties in the country which would mean even more investment for this sector.
