Those Who Owned Land in These Cities Won

Pandemics, shocking earthquakes, economic crises and wars…

 In all this gray atmosphere, lands that offer value increases that make investors happy and the opportunity to live in touch with nature continue to be one of the most preferred investment tools. Investors set their sights on the land due to reasons such as increases in housing prices, access to housing becoming increasingly impossible, and new settlers who want an isolated life turning to natural life. These cities brought the most profit in non-residential real estate purchases, which is a rising trend.

These Cities Are the Center of Attraction in the Land

According to the news published in Ekonomist magazine, Istanbul, Izmir, Çanakkale, Tekirdağ, Bursa, Balıkesir, Kırklareli, Edirne, Kocaeli, Yalova and Bilecik are among the cities that have earned the most for their owners in the last 3 years.

Stating that there are price increases of up to 150% throughout Turkey, officials underline that the rising value of the land will continue for a long time.

Other data included in the research is that Urla, Çeşme, Dikili, Güzelbahçe, Foça in İzmir, Arnavutköy in Istanbul, Çınarcık in Yalova, and locations close to the Gulf in Kocaeli are among the regions where square meter prices of field and land increased the most.

Locations such as Tayakadin, Yeniköy, Durusu, Karaburun, Uskumruköy, Boyalık, Terkos are among the regions most affected by the increasing trend in land prices in the region, which started with the Istanbul Airport, Northern Marmara Highway and Canal Istanbul projects. Foça and Dikili districts in Izmir, which stands out with its turquoise beaches, important ports and large industrial volume, are among the locations that gained the most value with factors such as the opening of Foça Marina and the acceleration of the construction of Çandarlı port. In addition to Kocaeli and Bursa, which are at the top of the list in land purchases with their proximity to Istanbul and developed industries, Çanakkale, Thrace, Balıkesir and Bilecik have been among the cities that provide the most profit to investors.
