Ways to get Turkish citizenship through real estate investment in Turkey

Gaining Turkish citizenship through real estate investment is a two-fold investment for two reasons: first, the person will become a Turkish citizen with full access to all the state rights; and second, if the person chooses the right neighborhood and property, he will benefit by 30% of the property's total worth after at least three years. What are the requirements for gaining Turkish citizenship through real estate investment? This calls for extremely careful consideration and consultation.
