The same applies to the beautiful view of the property, which makes the price of the property greater than the property with a less beautiful and attractive view, and therefore its role is taken into consideration.

– property servicing

Servicing the area in which the property is located and the modernity of the service infrastructure of public services, including public transportation, Internet services, electricity and water services, the presence of medical centers, the presence of schools and universities and other government services or services of private centers are among the factors that determine real estate prices in Istanbul


-The floor of the property

Most of the properties are in the form of floors, and each property consists of several floors, including 4 floors, 6 floors, and up to 10 floors, and this is due to the type and location of the property. Investors are always looking for properties that have a low floor due to the buyer’s family, as it may contain a disabled, sick or old person who cannot go up the stairs, even if the property is equipped with electric elevators, some people do not prefer this type of real estate and therefore the floor is one of the factors that play a role in determining the price of the property.

3- The growing demand for real estate

The urban development witnessed by the real estate sector in Istanbul and the continuation of the Turkish citizenship program in return for the purchase of real estate whose price is not less than 400 thousand US dollars, and also due to the development of infrastructure and its containment of the most important projects that have won international ranks, led to an increase in the demand that the markets are exposed to by foreign and Arab investors, and consequently, the increase in demand has a significant impact on determining the general price of the property.

4-Way  of  purchasing

The method of buying real estate is one of the factors affecting the determination of the general price of the property. Buying real estate in installments differs from buying it with direct cash payment. Real estate companies in Istanbul that offer special offers for the sale of real estate in installments are considered to be more expensive than companies that sell real estate in cash.

The relationship of the development of the market movement with the factors affecting the price of the property

Therefore, this continuation of these facilities will increase the number of investors in the coming years, which means the continuation of the rise.
