    In addition to the investment, actually it depends on your needs. If you want to purchase it and come to Turkey for the summer holidays, it is advisable to look for summer cities like Antalya, Aydın and İzmir, etc. And also these cities are also better options for you If you dont like the crowd. On the other hand, if you want to purchase it and will come only for shopping, real estates from big cities like İstanbul and Ankara are good choices. If you only want to make investment instead of also living inside, it is advisable to purchase real estate away from the city centers of big cities. In my opinion, the most growth potential exists in these areas since big cities are spreading to larger areas with new projects every day.

    Choosing the city that you wish to make your real estate investment is truly important in a country like Turkey that has diverse regional economic dynamics. Turkey is an emerging market where real estate prices in certain cities see an increase over the years and most properties have a high resale values, while investments in some cities do not come back with the same results. One should also consider whether or not they want to reside in the property that they purchased for investment purposes and the question becomes even more complex. According to recently published statistics, out of the 40,616 properties sold to foreigners in 2019, 18,207 of them were in Istanbul and Antalya came second with 7,994. If you compare the size of the two cities, it is apparent that Antalya is a major interest for foreign investors, and with 1/6 the population of Istanbul, it certainly has room for growth.
