It cannot be overlooked that the fluctuation of the value of the Turkish lira against the US dollar or other foreign currencies will greatly  affect your decision to buy real estate in Turkey.
When the lira collapses against the dollar automatically, real estate prices will rise, and the main reason for this is the rise in the prices of raw construction materials because Turkey imports them from abroad.
There are those who see this as negative, but the reality is otherwise, as it is an opportunity for smart people, where it is necessary to rush to sell and take advantage of the price difference that resulted between the two stages of buying and selling.
In general, what can be said here is that there is no loss with real estate if this is what worries you, even if its value decreases, you have to wait for a period of time for it to improve.

We have previously indicated that the change in the value of the Turkish lira does not necessarily have a negative impact, and at the same time its negative dimensions cannot be denied. The Turkish investor is considered one of the most affected by it, because all his money is in the local currency. As for the foreign investor, his money is in US dollars and according to the law he must buy real estate in Turkey According to the local currency, that is, he is obliged to sell the dollars in his possession.

This period calls for caution, so it is necessary to deal with a reliable real estate company that has good relations with construction companies to provide you with the best real estate opportunities and high discounts.
Before you choose the company that you will deal with, ask about its reputation in the market and take an idea of ​​the services it provides, as you can communicate with clients who have previously dealt with it.

4 – Will real estate completely lose its value when the price of the Turkish lira drops against foreign currencies?

Some believe that when the value of the Turkish lira changes, real estate will lose its value. Is this true? Of course, but it does not lose its value in full, as there are no losses with real estate, and it can recover its value quickly with the improvement of the value of the lira.

5 – Are rents in Turkey affected by the value of the Turkish lira?

Of course, real estate rental prices in Turkey also rise when the price of the Turkish lira changes. In this context, it should be noted that it has risen significantly due to the decline in the demand for purchase against the increase in demand for rent.
(This circumstance is a great opportunity for investors who prefer to invest their real estate by leasing it).

3 – The political and economic conditions and Turkey’s relations with the European Union, the Arab countries and the Gulf states also played a role in the development of the Turkish lira.
What we can say here is that the Turkish lira was resistant to all these crises and was able to deviate from the expectations of many economists and analysts.
