The top three buyers of Turkish real estate in the first quarter of 2022 included Iranians, Iraqis and Russians. Moreover, the Russians broke records in terms of the volume of transactions. Details with reference to the Turkish Institute of Statistics (TÜİK) were told by a Russian traveler on the Yandex.Zen channel.
According to the data, in the first quarter of 2022, Russian citizens bought 1,535 residential properties, which is 63.6% more than in the same period last year. According to her, there has never been such a rush demand for real estate in Alanya, Istanbul, Antalya and other regions. At the same time, experts enthusiastically assert that the figures for the second quarter will be even more pleasant.
“Alanya apartments are selling like hot cakes. Only the developer offered “odnushki” for 42 thousand euros [3.72 million rubles] (and now this is considered a low price) – they were immediately taken apart. In a week!” the blogger was surprised.
The most active buyers were citizens of Iran, Iraq and Russia. Also, the top ten included citizens of Germany, Kazakhstan and the Scandinavian countries. So, the Arabs mostly prefer not coastal resorts, but lively Istanbul. During this period, the Turks sold about 6,000 residential properties to representatives of the Arab countries. In addition, other cities were also in demand: Ankara, Trabzon, Samsun, Bursa. On the other hand, Russian and European emigrants, who are in short supply of sun and sea, choose the southern regions, in particular the province of Antalya.
“I bought a one-room apartment in August 2021 for 45 thousand euros [3.9 million rubles]. At the end of March, “odnushki” in my house were already sold for 65 thousand [5.66 million rubles]. Now all the apartments have been bought out,” the author noted.
As the Russian woman noted, Turkey is currently experiencing a real construction boom. “Land becomes more expensive, resorts develop, new projects appear every month. It's nice to see that the country is developing at such a pace. I wonder what Turkish resorts will look like in 5-10 years? It seems to me that Alanya is slowly turning into Dubai,” the tourist summed up.
