Investments in Turkish property: statistics and perspectives

January 7, 2006 is the date that changed the image of Turkey for tourists. The law № 5444 on "property purchase by foreigners in Turkey" was enacted. In later years, this law was developed and changed providing new opportunities which include:
• the abolition of minimum property cost for getting residence permit;
• simplification of property registration procedure and getting TAPU;
• the right to purchase the land both within the city and rural areas.

So, Turkey has become valuable for its investment attractiveness. According to the World Investment Project Survey which is formed by the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) Turkey was the fourteenth among the most investment attractive countries in 2013.
