It is difficult to mention a specific price. Whether in Istanbul or in other Turkish cities, it is difficult to have a fixed price because prices change due to many factors, which are as follows:
1 - The location of the apartment, its proximity, and its distance from the city and its center.

If you intend to search for luxury apartments for sale in Istanbul for real estate investment, you have done the right thing for several reasons, the most important of which are:
The demand for it is large and continuous, meaning that it can be rented easily.
Their prices are constantly increasing, which guarantees you a high profit.
Close to the most important infrastructure projects.
Recently, the latest and most prestigious urban projects have been built in it.
The Turkish government pays special attention to it and is working to develop it.
It provides a lot of public transportation that connects it with other areas.
In view of the large foreign influx into the real estate market in Turkey and the increase in the desire of foreigners to own property in Turkey, the Turkish government did not hesitate to provide all the many facilities it could, which met with tremendous resonance with the investor public, and the most important thing it provided (Installment apartments).
Not all people have the ability to pay the price of the property in one go or have cash for it, and therefore it is natural for them to look for alternative solutions that enable them to buy in a way that suits them, and no better than the installment offers that make the buyer pay for the property in convenient and spaced stages and installments.
Many construction companies offer long-term offers that may exceed 36 months, and it should be noted that they are safe and guaranteed and you do not have to worry about them at all.
We have two main ways to buy installment apartments in Turkey and you are free to choose between them, but not before you see the details of each of them, in the next paragraph we will talk about them in detail.
You can buy directly through one of the famous and reliable construction companies in Istanbul, and after you choose the one that is right for you, a contract is organized in which all the items that have been agreed upon are included, the most important of which is the price and delivery date.
Did you know that the idea of buying an apartment under construction is wonderful, as the prices increase after the construction work is completed by between 30% and 70%, and this puts you in front of a large profit if you want to sell it in the future.
The second option for buying an apartment in installments is to choose one of the banks that had previously purchased the apartment from the construction company and put a mortgage sign on it that is not raised until after the full price is paid.
Before you choose one of the two methods, let us tell you that the first method does not entail any interest, unlike the second, but in return, the second gives you longer years to pay the installments.
One of the common desires of people, investors, foreigners and even local residents is to buy an apartment overlooking the Bosphorus. There is nothing more beautiful than waking up and falling asleep to the smell of the sea and the scene of flowing water, and this is if you want to live and stay, but if you want to invest in real estate, trust that you will get high and continuous profits. This type of apartments is difficult to find without tenants, especially in the tourist seasons, as the demand for them is very large. Add to your information that if you want to sell it, it will be very easy.
You should know that investing in apartments overlooking the sea is very safe, as their prices remain fixed and are constantly increasing, meaning that they do not decrease and are not affected by any crises or price fluctuations.
If you look at the real estate sales statistics issued by the Turkish Statistics Authority, you will find that Istanbul is the best seller at all, what is the reason behind that in your opinion?
Before we start listing the advantages of owning real estate in Istanbul, let us point out a very important aspect, which is that the general advantages have combined with the advantages of this city, so it was the first destination for everyone looking for excellence, and through the following paragraph we chose to refer to its most important privileges:
1 - Whoever buys a property in Turkey for housing will be able to apply for a real estate residence permit, which is considered one of the most important types of residence at all, due to the ease of obtaining it and the possibility of renewing it as long as the foreigner is the owner of the property.

2 - Turkish citizenship can be obtained in return for the price of the property being 250 thousand US dollars, and this feature is considered the most important, and in this context we must note a very important matter, which is that within a few days the decision issued by the Turkish government will be implemented, which provides for raising the minimum threshold for the appropriate property for citizenship to four hundred thousand dollars.
3 - Immediately after obtaining Turkish citizenship, you can apply for a passport, which is considered one of the most powerful passports in the world, and according to the agency specialized in classifying passports globally, it is ranked 37th in the world.
