Turkey Property Prices Increase In July

News Posted On: 24 August 2009

According to the, which compiles an index of Turkish real estate prices in conjunction with Garanti bank, Turkish property sale prices rose in 6 major cities in July, and rents were also up in several popular tourism locations.

The index found that the biggest rise of an impressive 3.65% was in Kocaeli, followed by Adana with an increase of 1.09%, Ankara came in third with a rise of 0.98% and Istanbul was also noted for its seeing price growth of 0.84%.

Rents were up 1.70% in Izmir, 1.24% in Adana, 1.2% in Istanbul and 0.24% in Ankara. In Kocaeli, were sale prices rose by the largest margin, rents fell by the largest margin of 1.84%, while in Bursa rents fell by 1.06%.

The report put the price rises down to the falling Turkish interest rates. With another rate cut this month it is likely that prices will therefore continue to rise.

The interest rates increase activity among domestic buyers, but also give foreign lifestyle buyers the chance to get a better deal on a mortgage if the property they want to buy is completed.

Director of overseas property portal Property said:

"We have seen interest in Turkey property fall back slightly since June when the Lira was incredibly weak against the Pound, though Turkey property is currently still almost 9% cheaper to British buyers than it was in April. Though overall activity has been falling there is increasing interest for resale properties in Turkey as people know that foreigners can get mortgages in Turkey only on completed properties."
