Buying real estate is one of the safest investment methods, as well as the best long-term investment. The real estate market is a safe haven for investors and venture capitalists when we compare it to the stock or cryptocurrency markets, for example, which is a risky game.

Also, the investment returns on real estate are great in the long run, as the population is increasing and the demand for real estate continues to grow. The longer you keep the properties, the more valuable they are and the more profit you will earn when appraising and evaluating the property. One of the biggest advantages of owning investment properties is the constant and regular rental return, unlike the stock market or cryptocurrency, when you invest in tangible assets, you will not be at the mercy of the volatile market forces that are able to reduce your net worth overnight, your house or apartment is a physical proof of your investment, tangible assets certainly outweigh the intangible. Owning a property guarantees you a stable and regular monthly income that will continue to increase over time, along with the growth in the capital value of the property.

In addition, anyone can invest in real estate, as investing in real estate does not require any special skills, all you have to do is deal with a reliable real estate company and communicate with a real estate consultant who has long experience and knowledge of all the details of laws, projects and areas suitable for investment.

What are the best 5 areas for real estate investment in Istanbul?

Turkey has become the preferred destination for investors in the recent period, as all elements of successful and profitable investment apply to it. The Turkish economy has achieved qualitative leaps and remarkable growth. This growth included most areas and sectors within the Turkish economy. The most important of these sectors was the real estate sector in Turkey, which is achieving rising growth and massive success that attracts investors to invest in real estate in Turkey. According to the Kuwaiti newspaper, Al-Anbaa, during the past years, Turkey attracted foreign investments amounting to 10 billion dollars, including 4 billion dollars for the construction sector alone.

Here are the top 5 promising and suitable areas for real estate investment in Istanbul in 2021:


  1.  Sisli area 

A central area, it is the vibrant heart of Istanbul, the center of business and luxury projects. It is one of the oldest areas of Istanbul and includes the most famous and most prestigious neighborhoods of Istanbul, such as Nisantasi neighborhood and Bomonti neighborhood. Sisli is also characterized by the presence of the most luxurious international hotels such as the Hilton and Ritz-Carlton, and it is also the choice of tourists where there are shopping centers that contain shops and boutiques of the most famous international brands, such as Zorlu Center Mall, Istinye Park Mall and Cevahir Mall.

The area is characterized by its proximity to the Bosphorus, and most of Sisli's projects and towers have a wonderful view of the Bosphorus, which is a competitive advantage as it is the only central area on the European side of Istanbul that includes apartments overlooking the Bosphorus.

Sisli is also one of the most fully serviced areas in terms of public transportation. The Metrobus line, the most important means of transportation in Istanbul, passes through it. It also has a share of infrastructure projects such as tunnels and bridges that facilitate access to and from the area, in addition to the availability of basic services. For the residents, it has a number of universities that provide the best educational services, luxurious hospitals and other basics that the residents need.

The most important factors that make Sisli a highly desirable area is that it is the best option for investment, as it includes relatively few new projects, and therefore real estate prices are constantly rising, demand is high and supply is low.
