36.8 million Foreign visitors arriving in 2014. 5.7% growth in average tourism spends in the last five years. 16.3% increase in house sales in December 2014, compared to the previous year. There is no denying it; the Turkish property market is looking hot.
And as 2015 begins to shine the spotlight even more sharply on this growing market, there is one location that is standing out more than all the rest, and not just in Turkey, worldwide. Istanbul is fast gaining an enviable reputation as one of the world’s top tourist destinations, with Trip Advisor ranking it in prime position in its ‘Top 25 World Destinations’ as part of the 2014 Travellers’ Choice Awards, a deserving accolade for a location where ’Europe and Asia meet… where breathtaking ancient architecture coexists with modern restaurants and nightlife.”
A melting pot of history and culture, as well as being a thriving financial centre, the resounding success of Turkey’s largest city has led to a flourishing property market, ripe for investment and increasingly so. Dynamic property company, Universal21, in recognising this, has been successfully working in the South-West region of Istanbul for 7 years and has grown to become proud of its status as the market leader in this field.
With a proven track record of bringing to market a diverse range of major projects in the city, Universal21 is highly experienced and knowledgeable on, the Turkish property market and offers total turnkey rental management services to those buying in Istanbul for investment and those buying for lifestyle reasons alike.
With this wealth of experience behind them, Director of Universal21, AdilYaman, is sure that 2015 is already on track to be an even more exciting year,
“Istanbul is a renowned transcontinental city that has grown to become the planet’s go-to destination. This has meant that great opportunities have emerged for people investing in the local property market and we are fortunate to be able to help people in this through our wide range of property projects, from studio, one or two bed apartments, through to large, exclusive detached villas.
“With growing tourist numbers and greater development in the property market already being recorded this year, it is clear that 2015 is going to build, further still, on this enviable reputation and we look forward to what it will bring for Universal21 and our clients.”
Further to this increasing success, both for Istanbul and Universal21, the company has announced the appointment of leading property PR agency, AB Property Marketing to further grow their presence in the market.
