“We will also Highlight Turkey’s Advantages in Health, Education and Tourism”
Stating that the main purpose of the Home Turkey Home campaign is to explain the real estate opportunities in Turkey to international investors accurately and comprehensively, GIGDER Founding Board Member Haluk Hasanoğlu said, “Our campaign will not only bring forward the importance of real estate investment to the agenda, but also highlight the advantages of our country in the health, education and tourism sectors.”
Bringing together the sector stakeholders that the real estate sector has needed for many years, GIGDER is a non-governmental organization that enables the sector to deal with its problems through its primary interlocutor… The Housing Construction Committee of the Istanbul Chamber of Commerce, which is one of the largest chambers of commerce in the world with its 81 committees and more than 400 thousand members, carries out joint studies with non-governmental organizations and other stakeholders in order to overcome the problems and difficulties faced by the sector.
It is a very important gain for the sector that these two important organizations join forces with ‘Home Turkey Home’ for the work that is of utmost importance for the sector, especially for foreign citizens to acquire property in Turkey, and which will facilitate international investors’ purchase.
The main purpose of the Home Turkey Home campaign, which is a long-term and quite comprehensive project, is to explain the real estate opportunities in Turkey to international investors in an accurate and comprehensible way. Our campaign will not only bring forward the importance of real estate investment to the agenda, but also highlight the advantages of our country in the health, education and tourism sectors. In this context, we will continue our efforts to convey Turkey’s investment potential to international investors in the long term, by providing up-to-date information at all times.
The first factor for our country to be preferred by foreign investors is our strong economy and affordable real estate prices. In addition, there is a lot of variety, especially in real estate. In line with the work carried out by both the Istanbul Chamber of Commerce and GIGDER in Turkey, property acquisition processes can be realized much faster and easier than before for foreigners.
Turkey has become a centre of attraction for international investors due to its geographical location and transportation infrastructure. Although real estate sales to foreigners decreased by 10.3 percent from 45 thousand 483 to 40 thousand 812 in 2020 compared to the previous year, despite the difficult conditions of the pandemic, the second highest sales figure in history was reached. International investors do not give up on investing under any circumstances. In terms of foreign investors, our target in 2021 is to reach a sales figure above that of 2020.
