How many properties are allowed for a foreigner to own in Turkey?
Among the most common questions among those interested in real estate in Turkey is the number of properties that a foreigner can own. Is the field open to him, or are there restrictions that must be adhered to?
In this regard, we must point out that despite the facilities provided by the Turkish government and the flexibility of Turkish laws, there are certain restrictions that must be adhered to, which are as follows:
1 - A foreigner is not entitled to own more than thirty hectares in Turkey and in its various regions.
2 - If the number of real estate sold to foreigners in a certain area or town exceeds 10% of its total area, the Directorate of Land Registry stops granting licenses.
3 - One of the points that it is important to adhere to is that the property should not be located within a security or military area.
Steps to buy a property in Turkey:
If you intend to search for a property for sale in Turkey, you should see the steps that must be followed first. Your commitment to them is the first step in order to achieve the results and success that you hope to reach. Below we remind you of all the steps.
The first step: Find what suits you from the property that suits you:
In order to find the right property for you, you must specify its goal (Do you want to settle and reside? Or do you seek to start a safe real estate investment? Or do you prefer to obtain Turkish citizenship?)
- If you want to live, you can see the specifications of real estate in Turkey and its advantages, and then choose what suits you and in line with your financial budget.

- If you want to obtain Turkish citizenship, you must look for a property that fits the conditions stipulated in the Turkish constitution (the minimum value of which should be two hundred and fifty thousand US dollars, in addition to a pledge not to sell it before three years have passed since the date of its purchase).
Step Two: What is your source of financing for the purchase of the property?
After you have found the right property for you, Know that you are faced with three possibilities:
1 - The first possibility is that the price of the property is available to you, and you can pay its value directly and in one payment.
2 - The second possibility is that your financial balance is not commensurate with the value of the property and you need to resort to borrowing the amount from a bank in Turkey.
3 - The third possibility is that you resort to a construction company to buy a property in installments and pay comfortably over a period of years.
Step Three: Hire a Reliable Real Estate Agent:
One of the biggest mistakes that a buyer may make when searching for real estate for sale in Turkey is to rely on himself in the search and avoid using a real estate agent or company.
The real estate agent guarantees that you will get the best properties for sale at great prices, as a result of his great experience in the field of real estate in Turkey. If you are alone, it is easy to be a victim of real estate fraud, especially if this is your first experience in buying real estate.

The most important notes when owning real estate in Turkey:
1 - For a profitable real estate investment, be sure to buy a property in a privileged location (close to public services - close to transportation - schools - health institutions - tourist attractions).
2 - Check the legal status of the property (are there restrictions or problems arising from it, such as mortgage or other problems), you must review the Directorate of Land Registry.
3 - If you want to live in a quiet area away from the noise, do not look in the city center (it is preferable to go to rural or remote areas).
4 - Residential real estate is more distinguished than commercial real estate for real estate investment, as it is superior to it in several aspects, firstly, the ease of renting it because the demand for it is large, and secondly, the ease of selling if you want it in the future.
