Can foreigners buy Land in Istanbul?
The Turkish word for land is arsa, and plots for sale come on the market all the time. You can only buy plots for building, not agriculture. In addition, blueprint plans for the build must be submitted within two years, and the final development completed within five. As an experienced real estate agent in Istanbul, call us to discuss the rules and regulations of buying land in Istanbul.
Prices vary depending on location and easy access to places like the coastline or major highways. An average starting price is 50,000 GBP going right up to six digits. We recommend browsing our portfolio to see examples of what is on the market, and also to get an idea of what to pay because at this stage of the purchase, it is important to make sure you don’t pay over the odds. Our local agents have excellent insight into the market, how much other plots are selling for, projected ten-year investment plans, and building regulations.
Where to Buy Land in Istanbul
There are many districts with plots for sale on the European side because there is more development happening there. Silivri is an excellent place to start for budget buyers. Many residents of the main city centre own holiday homes in the area and often head there at the weekends. It sits six kilometres from the E80 highway and seven kilometres from the coastline. Catalca is another destination with affordable prices per square metre for land for sale in Istanbul. Alongside the exclusive lifestyle it offers, many plots have stunning forest and landscape views.
Meanwhile for lakeside living, look to Sapanca, on the Asian side, which is one hour’s drive from the city centre. An up-and-coming area with much potential for either building a summer villa or year-round residence is Buyukcekmece. Known for its long coastline and many shopping malls, it seems far distant from an urban lifestyle. Another place for a coastline lifestyle is Kilyos Beach.
