The return on real estate investment in Turkey

The return on real estate investment in Turkey is one of the most important features that motivate foreign investors to invest in Turkey, where there are many projects, including residential and commercial projects, which are distributed throughout the cities of Turkey.

The method of calculating the return on investment of a property is different according to the types of the investment, as in real estate investment the capital invested in the property remains the same and the value does not change, but on the contrary if you choose the right real estate opportunity, this may increase the value of the property, which means increase the capital, for example, in the case of investing in a property with a guaranteed investment return of 6% for 5 years, the investor receives 30% of the value of the property.

If the investment site is promising, that is, real estate prices are set to increase, the investor gets an investment return from reselling the property in that area, bringing the real estate investment return to between 70% and 100% of the value of the original investment.
