About Fatih in Istanbul
As one of Istanbul’s top two districts, Fatih is also known as the old city, thanks to the Sultanahmet neighbourhood. Home to iconic attractions like the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque, Basilica cistern and hippodrome, it was the ruling capital centre of both the Ottoman and Byzantine empires. These days, its fame stands as Turkey’s most visited tourist attraction.
Neighbourhoods like Fener and Balat, known for their Jewish, Armenian and Greek heritage are also climbing in popularity as visitors head off the beaten track to discover Istanbul’s cultural heritage and identity. Whether you want a permanent year-round residence, buy-to-let tourism rental income, holiday home, or to make a mid to long-term investment, Fatih ticks all the boxes as a desirable location.
Property owners have instant access to cheap and frequent transport, shops, bars, and restaurants. Fatih’s geographical position makes it a key area for Fatih property buyers looking for stunning views of either the Golden Horn, Bosphorus strait of water or Marmara Sea. Gulhane Park, one of Istanbul’s most famous green spaces, also sits within the district, and homeowners love the peace and tranquillity it offers in among a busy city.
Real estate in Fatih
Such is Fatih’s developed status, the housing market includes many properties from off-plan, key-ready and resale studios, apartments, duplexes, and commercial real estate like hotels, and shops. On rare occasions, old Ottoman three storey mansions also come on the market, presenting an opportunity to own a slice of history. Given Faith’s popularity, the constant demand for homes evokes a higher price per square metre than other districts, yet buyers can still find some gems, and we often receive details of under-priced homes because the seller wants a quick sale.
