One criteria for the foreign investors in order to buy real estate in Turkey, is the location. So, cities along the Mediteranean coast, such as Konyaalti, Lara, Kemer, Alanya, Serik, Side and Bogazkent, are among their favorites. All the above were stated by the Chairman of the Real Estate Chamber, Seref Saglam, who also claimed that real estate sales to foreign buyers, are still continuing. Moreover, sales to downtown are also among their preferences.
Near to all the above cities, is located the famous Antalya. Seref Saglam, believes that, Antalya lost some of its potential investors, due to the lack of land and high interest rates in housing loans. So currently, a minor recession has been noticed. Nevertheless, Russians continue to buy Turkish real estate in Antalya, living peacefully with the locals, despite the rumors for the opposite.
Along with the Russians, Canadians, Germans, Norwegians, Saudis, Dutch and Americans, are some of the foreing buyers, who prefer to invest in the lands of Turkey.
