Leave the solution to us and you will find them all in the comments.
  • This type of residency is one of the short-term types of residency, KISA DÖNEM, which is granted as being valid for a specific period determined by the Immigration Department in Turkey , which generally grants all types of residency in Turkey, from tourist, family, commercial, student residency, work residency, and even humanitarian residency. There are many types and still are. There are some shapes coming out these days.
  • So, real estate residency is a right granted to every foreigner who buys a property in Turkey. As for the conditions, they are in our next paragraph. This residency permits its holder to move around and conduct his business in Turkish territory legally, and it means a legal permit granted for its holder to reside in Turkey in a safe and sound manner.

  • Real estate residency is one of the new types of residency offered in 2018, according to the regulations and laws that have been approved since then, but the updates related to it have become a worry for many who came to Turkey to obtain it, and the reason is that these updates are so numerous that they cannot be avoided these days. Therefore, you must have an expert with you who will provide you with correct advice in this regard, or a lawyer who will represent you in Turkish territory.

What are the conditions for real estate residency in Türkiye 2023?

First: The property purchased in exchange for residence is valid for residential purposes only!

  • What do we mean by that? The real estate that we purchased must be habitable and this is stipulated in the title deed document granted for it. The Immigration Department cannot provide a real estate residence permit in violation of this text. More simply put, there are only two types of title deed documents that can be obtained for real estate residency, which are the full ownership document. And the floor easement document.

  • These two documents are intended only for residential properties, and sometimes they may be in some commercial stores, and here you must pay attention and focus, because the clarification in the title deed must be written that the property is designated for housing, and anything less than that is illegal for real estate residence.
  • In the title deed document there is a box that explains the type of use. It may be a commercial property, or it may be a property designated for land. All of this is unacceptable, but the valid one for this residence is only the one designated for housing. Therefore, care must be taken to fulfill this condition, which is considered essential and an unacceptable defect. with it.
  • Damas Turk Real Estate Company explains this to you through its consultants in the event that the information has not reached you in the desired manner, and you can contact us through the means of communication available on the website. Colleagues will guide you and introduce you to the types of title deeds, and elaborate on the types that are compatible with real estate residency. 

Second: The value of the property must be at least $200,000

  • Before the beginning of 2022, the value was unconditional when purchasing the property in exchange for obtaining the real estate residency, but after months of that year and the noticeable increase in real estate prices, there became a number required to be achieved in order to obtain the real estate residency, and this value is 200 thousand dollars? But does it apply to all cities and regions? 
  • This value is only in the major cities in Turkey, such as Istanbul, Trabzon, Bursa , Ankara, Antalya , and others. As for the smaller cities, it is 50 thousand dollars. This law is in effect until the writing of this article, and the value may change at any time in light of the updates that occur regularly. My role in Turkey. 
  • There is a common mistake regarding this matter, which is buying a property worth $200,000 from the father and presenting it to him and his children along with the wife on a real estate residency, which is unacceptable, because the law says that for each person the value corresponding to the real estate residency must be $200,000, while the family may Real estate residency is not granted, but tourist residency is usually granted. 
  • So, $200,000 is the value of the property and in the name of the person requesting real estate residency. For example, the property cannot be in the name of two or more people, because the value of the property is distributed among them as if it were shares, and each person has an estimated share of the price of the property. For example, the value of the property is $100,000 in the name of the property. Two people, each person's share is only $50,000! 

Third: Is it possible to buy two properties worth $200,000 and obtain real estate residency?

  • Of course not, and this is a matter in which there has been great confusion and ambiguity, and this is unacceptable to the Turkish Immigration Department, as the law requires that it be one property with the value required for real estate residency. However, if there are two properties with this value, the application is rejected and real estate residency is not granted on its basis. 
  • In general, given the current prices in Turkey, it is very difficult to find a property for less than this value in cities where foreigners are present. Prices even exceed this value if they are in or near city centers, and the average real estate prices in Turkey for 100 square meters are more than 180 thousand dollars. 

Fourth: The presence of a real estate evaluation proving that the value of the property matches the required value 

  • What do we mean by that? Two years ago and more, the term real estate appraisal appeared widely in foreign sales. The real estate appraisal report in Turkey was defined by real estate appraisal companies as follows: “It is a detailed report on the condition of the property to be sold, in which the market price of the property is also presented. It is prepared by private companies whose specialty is appraising real estate in Turkey holds a license to do so, and this report is also called the real estate appraisal report.

  • Sometimes some people take advantage of foreigners' ignorance of real estate prices in the market, so they deliberately raise prices for the sake of deception and benefit. The real estate evaluation report in Turkey here gives us the real and logical price of the property, and on this basis the buyer applies in order to complete the process of purchasing the property and obtain real estate residency.
  • Therefore, before purchasing the property and in order to ensure that the true value of the property matches the required value, the presence of a real estate evaluation report has become a basic condition, and you can apply for it before purchasing the property if you want to ensure that it matches the true value, and to reduce falling victim to fraud and others, and we at Damas Turk provide you with the report. Before purchasing, to be 100% guaranteed.  

Fifth: Buying real estate in cities and available areas

  • What do we mean by that? After the increase in the number of foreigners in Turkey, there became areas and cities with a large density of these foreigners, due to their concentration in certain areas or places next to each other. This affected the increase in the population in those areas, affected the increase in traffic congestion in them, and finally affected the fabric. Turks in these areas. 

The most important and latest real estate projectsReal estate for sale in Türkiye

  • The solution was that every area in which the number of foreigners increased by 20% was completely closed to the presence of any foreigner except in exceptional cases, and obtaining real estate residency in these areas became dependent on the fact that the value of the foreigners there must be less than the mentioned percentage. 
  • Therefore, a basic condition before purchasing the property and in order to obtain it is to search for the areas available for foreigners to reside there under real estate residency in Turkey, or to seek the assistance of a real estate expert and consultant, just as we at Damas Turk Real Estate provide legal consultations through Turkish lawyers specialized in foreigners’ affairs .
