Istanbul Property Guide

Istanbul is a vibrant city with so much to do. There are ruins and spectacular mosques for those who enjoy history, museums and galleries for culture vultures, and incredible malls and markets for shopaholics. Anyone seeking an investment property would do well here; Istanbul's young population are your prime rental target, and as the city gains more and more visitors each year, you are bound to see a return on your investment. It's not ideal for those seeking a holiday home or permanent home - unless you are avid city fans. You will have to contend with crowds and noise, and the nearest beaches will be crowded.

Our main tip for would-be Istanbul property investors: be wary of projects offering rental guarantee contracts. Most of these are not bank backed but merely promises extended by developers or agents with little enforceability. Having said that, in selective districts and within desirable projects, rental yields in excess of 6%pa can easily be achieved and very strong price appreciations can be expected. Istanbul is a difficult market to rationalise due to its sheer size and variety, therefore potential Istanbul property investors are best advised to talk to our Istanbul property specialists and obtain frank and objective analysis as to various development areas and projects on offer.
