Prominent areas for Apartments Sales in Istanbul
The Sisli area in European Istanbul revolves around business and shopping malls, yet desirable neighbourhoods have plenty to offer apartment buyers. Bomonti, a district undergoing renovation and an overhaul of its urban planning structure attracts real estate investors looking for long term capital appreciation. Its late entry to modernising its real estate portfolio has also kept prices down, making it ideal for budget buyers.
The other neighbourhood, Nisantasi suits luxury buyers. As an upmarket region, the lifestyle revolves around hedonism and comfort, and some penthouses in the area are stunning examples of idyllic and luxurious homes. Another alternative for luxury apartment buyers is prestigious Cihangir, a neighbourhood with a reputation engrained in the arts, culture and social scenes.
Besiktas on the shores of the Bosphorus is high profile and ideal for people who want great transport links or to be in the heart of the business centre, Levent. Sitting on either side of the Golden Horn, buyers looking at apartments for sale in Fatih and Beyoglu should expect to pay a higher price per square meter because these districts are the hearts of old and new Istanbul. However, their charming portfolio includes original, unique homes for urban city fans.
Urban regeneration has transformed Eyup into a famous conservative district while Beylikduzu attracts investors with its low prices per square metre and future potential. Over on the Asian side of Istanbul, areas dominating the market include Pendik, Kartal and high profile Uskudar.
