Real estate price growth in Turkiye for 2024

It is widely acknowledged that Turkish market has always been attracting real estate investors. In 2023, prices for properties registered a staggering growth rate of 86.46%. According to our experts’ opinion, the trend of quick growth of real estate prices will continue in 2024 as well.

This will be majorly caused by the composition of these factors:

  • growth of land price,
  • high demand on rental market,
  • rise in the cost of construction materials,
  • continuing urbanization and development of major cities owing to various infrastructural projects.

Market situation

There are key factors, that influence and direct the situation on the Turkish market nowadays.

Price growth for 2022

2022 was marked by high activity in the residential real estate market. It was the times of historic growth of prices. Thus, September-October 2022 experienced an increase in price of up to incredible 200%.

In accordance with some data, Istanbul, Antalya, Mersin, Ankara, and Bursa were the most popular destinations among buyers in 2022. The purchasers were predominantly from Russia, Iran, Iraq, Germany, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine.

Decrease in the pace of construction

The number of construction projects under construction in Turkiye is decreasing significantly. The tendency started in the pandemic period. According to the Turkish Statistical Institute (TUIK), 7 years ago, 1.4 million construction licenses were issued, in 2021, the number decreased to 725 thousand, in 2022, to 695.8 thousand, in 2023, it fell to 520 thousand.

Another push factor for this decrease was the earthquake, that happened in February 2023. After that, many construction companies engaged in general constructing were sent to build houses on the area stroke by the devastating earthquake. Thus, the Turkish construction industry grew slightly in 2023 due to the reconstruction of buildings and infrastructure, which had been damaged.

The current trend is that the predominant part of residential properties in Turkiye is secondary housing, since new buildings are becoming unaffordable for locals, that’s why developers are reducing new projects. It is worth suggesting that, ultimately, it will lead to price increase of secondary real estate and shortage of housing in perspective.

Price growth for construction

Construction expenses are keeping on growing. This year, rebar prices grew by 41%, prices for concrete grew by 134%, cement – by 147%.

The cost for labor is also going up. Thus, the minimum wage was risen by the President of Turkiye. So, the salaries of construction specialists, such as designers, engineers, have increased, too.

Forecast for 2024

Experts at One World forecast further overall growth for 2024. The value and price of real estate will rise. Moreover, the development of various regions is predicted. What is necessary to specify is that investors are going to show interest not only in residential real estate, but also in commercial real estate and land purchases.

It is incredibly crucial that in its efforts to balance economy, nowadays the country is increasing foreign direct investment, implementing infrastructure projects, that will prospectively lead to the real-estate boom. Thus, tax incentives, facilitated property buying processes for foreigners, CBI programs have also been initiated by the government to foster the market.

Undoubtedly, the increase in prices will not cover all the regions of Turkiye. More price increases will supposedly occur in the areas with high tourism attractiveness rather than in less developed and rural regions, where prices may even experience a slight decrease.

There are some risks, that affect the further development of this dynamic sphere. Namely, political instability, economic crisis, currency fluctuation are among the biggest today’s challenges for Turkiye. However, despite difficulties, Turkiye will carry on being one of the most attractive real estate markets in the coming period, making it possible for investors to benefit largely from substantial returns through real-estate investment opportunities.
