"Turkey is the gateway between east and west"
LIVE BETWEEN EUROPE AND ASIA
Turkey, the only nation which can claim to have one foot in Europe whilst having the other firmly in Asia, truly is the gateway to the east and west. With diverse landscapes from mountains to salt plains and the warm Mediterranean Sea, Turkey is a country with a lot to offer.
Having a property in Turkey means you can enjoy 300 sunny days a year. It’s no surprise that social gatherings and day to day activity tends to happen outdoors. With all the focus being on the outdoors, meeting, eating and drinking (except during Ramadan), walking, beaches and sailing are all high on the list of activities. Turkey also offers residents good value for money, affordable health care and a vibrant culture.
What types of properties are available?
Turkey has properties to suit the tastes of any buyer, from city center apartments both new and old, detached villas along the stunning coastline, suburban homes skirting the bustling cities of Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir and Bursa and unique countryside cottages.
What does an expat need in order to buy in TURKEY?
Foreign nationals are allowed to buy property anywhere in Turkey except for military zones.
The gates of citizenship are open to foreigners who buy a house in Turkey. According to the Turkish citizenship program, foreigners who buy real estate for €210,000 or more can become Turkish citizens immediately, with their families being granted Turkish passports as well.
In contrast to the European market, the acquisition cost of an apartment or house in Turkey is very low.
