Real Estate

Turkey’s real estate market has been booming over the past several years, particularly as foreign investor interest has increased in Turkish real property, in conjunction with the European Union accession process. Recently, legislation has been enacted to provide benefits from the mortgage system in Turkey, which has opened a new era in Turkey’s real estate sector.
