Do I buy a property in Turkey in lira or in dollars


Turkey with a population of 84 million is one of the most beautiful countries in the world to live in. Owning a house, living, and having a holiday in Turkey is the dream of thousands of foreign investors. For foreigners who want to buy real estate in Turkey, the Turkish Government offers unique real estate purchase incentives. With the reciprocity law in 2012, the obstacles to foreigners purchasing real estate in Turkey were removed. In addition, the Turkish Government has provided foreign investors with many conveniences such as tax incentives, easy residence permits, and citizenship programs. In addition to all the conveniences offered by the Turkish government to foreigners, the temporary depreciation of the Turkish lira against the dollar is considered an important opportunity for foreign investors to purchase real estate in Turkey. A foreigner who wants to buy a property in Turkey in any foreign currency in dollars or euros can own real estate at a very affordable price due to the devaluation of the Turkish lira.

The Turkish lira is a valuable currency that has an important place in the international market from the first moment it was printed. The Turkish lira, which has had hard times in recent years due to political policies and the Covid-19 pandemic, has lost value against currencies such as the dollar and the euro. Of course, this loss of value is a temporary situation for Turkey, which has a strong economy. Although the current situation in the country is a difficult process for Turkish citizens, it offers unique opportunities for foreigners to use foreign currency. With the increasing exchange rate, real estate prices in Turkey have reached a very attractive level for foreigners. In 2021, foreign investors can buy a sea view flat in Istanbul, one of the world's largest metropolises, for 250.000 USD and apply for Turkish citizenship. By purchasing real estate in Turkey, foreigners can apply for Turkish citizenship with their families and benefit from the advantages of being Turkish citizens. A foreigner who acquires Turkish citizenship by investment in 2021 also has a Turkish passport and can travel to 110 countries without a visa.

For foreign investors who want to buy real estate in Turkey at affordable prices, the times when the exchange rate increases in Turkey are the best investment times. Buying a house in Turkey, which has the status of a developing country in the world, offers an investment opportunity that will make a lot of money in the future. Turkey is growing and getting stronger every year with its strong and stable economic policy.
