In general, the Turkish economy depends at the forefront on investment, mainly foreign, and is considered one of the essential investment sectors in Turkey, the real estate investment sector.

The emergence and decline of the Corona pandemic, in addition to the crisis of the rise of the US dollar against the Turkish lira, greatly affected all economic sectors in Turkey, the most important of which is real estate investment. Given the recent real estate prices in Turkey, it can be noted the many hikes that affected Turkish real estate prices late last year 2021, And it is continuing at a faster pace since the early days of the current year 2022.
According to the Research and Studies Center of the Turkish Bahcesehir University BETAM, Istanbul real estate prices alone rose by 105.6% in 2021. This rise is not only due to the decline in the exchange rate of the Turkish currency against foreign currencies, led by the dollar. In addition, the high inflation rate (consumer price index) reached 36.8%, according to the Turkish Statistical Authority, in the last month of the previous year on an annual basis, but also as Turkey approaches the year 2023.
