BEYLÜKDÜZÜ LEADER IN HOUSING SEARCH RANKING

The province where rents decreased the most was Antalya with 6 percent.
Beylikdüzü was the leader in the housing search ranking among districts, followed by Çankaya and Bursa Osmangazi.
“DEMAND FOR DISTRICTS WITH THE POTENTIAL TO BECOME A PROVINCE IS INCREASING”
Emlakjet Chief Executive (CEO) Tolga İdikat, whose evaluations on the subject were included in the statement, talked about the research they conducted on the districts that have been on the public agenda for a while and have the expectation of becoming a province.
Stating that according to the answers they received from Emlakjet participants, there is an expectation of being a province mostly for Alanya and Bandırma districts, İdikat said:
“There is also an opinion that the value of real estate will increase if the districts in question become provinces. According to the compilation we made from our own data, acting with this expectation, we see that the sales and rental price increases in the said districts are upward, except for Alanya. In addition, in our survey, the participants’ interest in these districts “There is also an enthusiasm for investment. Alanya is a district where seasonal price fluctuations occur every year. Therefore, although it is the district with the highest potential to become a province, the price change for sale and rental is negative. The most important reason for this is that we are entering the winter months.”
Talking about the decline in housing sales, İdikat said that those who want to buy a house continue to expect a low-interest loan campaign, and that if such a campaign is implemented, sales will increase.
Emlakjet Prestige Plus member Şengül Güler also gave information about the latest developments in the Bandırma real estate market.
Noting that the rental housing portfolio in the region has come to a halt and there is a slowdown in housing for sale, Güler explained that the demand for land and fields in the district and the interest of investors from Istanbul are increasing day by day.
Meryem Güngör from Emlakjet Premium member Pier Alanya office stated that there is currently a stagnation in the Alanya market and said, “The high housing loan interest rates have brought the demand to a halt. We can also show the closure of some regions to foreign sales as the reason for this.”
