  • It can be any kind of real estate (house, apartment, villa, store, office or land.)
  • You can buy one or more properties to fulfill the minimum worth requirement.
  • You should get an appraisal for each real estate from approved appraisers. We help you find the correct real estate and get the appraisal report for you.
  • You should declare and sign a statement at the Property Registry Office that you will not sell the property for 3 years.

What are the expected costs for the program other than the real estate price?

  • The expenses such as real estate agent fees, Property Office Registry fees, citizenship application fees, appraisal fees for each property, and notary public fees are 6-7% percent of the sale price of the property. These expenses will depend on the number of properties.

The advantage of the Turkish Citizenship Program is twofold: You not only invest in the passport but make a profitable real estate investment.

Prices of residential properties in Izmir has increased by 16.5% in the last 12 months, which makes Izmir the second most profitable city among 150 global cities according to an independent report by Knight and Frank.

Please see our link about the benefits of real estate investment in Izmir Turkey.

When you rent the property, the average return on investment (ROI) is 20 years in Turkey.

However, it is possible to find properties with a return on investment (ROI) of less than 18 years in Izmir.

Our team is experienced at finding properties with high expected appreciation and low return on investment.

We should note that the 400,000 USD Real Estate investment limit can be increased or the program may cease anytime and this is a limited-time opportunity. Therefore interested parties should act fast. To get more information please contact us at +90(544)288-5280 or yusuf@ateskanlaw.com
