A remarkable rise in real estate prices in Turkey during the past months is due to the increase in demand in many Turkish states, especially Istanbul, in return for a decrease in supply, amid expectations of a further rise in 2022.

The demand for real estate purchases in areas close to services and major infrastructure projects has increased, as a result of the high growth rate of the Turkish economy, in addition to the many advantages that foreign investors obtain when owning real estate in Turkey.

In this article from Taksim Real Estate, we explain the reasons for the recent rise in house prices in Turkey, and the extent of its impact on real estate sales in the country, so read on.

Reasons for increasing real estate prices in Turkey

As we mentioned earlier, the increase in the price of real estate in Turkey is due to the increased demand by Turks and foreigners alike, and if we talk about the reasons for the increase in foreign investors, especially Arabs, to buy a property in Turkey, the most prominent of them are the following:

• The facilities provided by the Turkish government to investors, including the real estate appraisal document, and the abolition of the reciprocity law.

• Discounts and tax exemptions when buying a property in Turkey.

• Major infrastructure projects, such as the Istanbul Canal Project and Istanbul's Third Airport.

• The social and political stability in the Republic of Turkey.

• The possibility of a foreigner obtaining real estate residency or Turkish citizenship when buying a property there.

Real estate sales in Turkey in light of rising prices

House prices in Turkey increased during the third quarter of previous  year 2021 by 37%, compared to the same period of 2020, and the highest rise were Aydin, Mugla, and Balıkesir, respectively.

During this period, about 396,328 homes were sold in the Turkish states, with home sales increasing in 2021, by 26% compared to the same period last year, according to the latest report of the endeksa platform.

Real estate sales to foreigners also increased by 43% compared to the same period in 2020, where 16,991 housing units were sold to foreigners, with home sales to foreigners achieving 60%, an increase of 43% compared to the same period of the previous year.

Will real estate prices rise in Turkey in 2022?

Local real estate market experts expect a further rise in the price of real estate in Turkey during the current year 2022, as a result of the increased demand for purchase, in addition to the high exchange rate of the US dollar against the Turkish lira.

With this rise, Turkey remains the ideal destination for foreigners wishing to invest in real estate; this is because the prices of housing units are very low compared to other Arab and European countries.

This was a quick presentation of real estate prices in Turkey, and the reasons for its prosperity, with a presentation of the real estate market experts' view of prices in the future.

What is the property transfer tax in Turkey?

When considering buying property in Istanbul or other cities, it is necessary to know everything related to real estate taxes in Turkey, such as the one-off property transfer tax, in addition to annual taxes such as the profit tax, and monthly taxes such as the income tax.

Real estate taxes in Turkey are levied at the same value on both the Turkish citizen and the foreign investor, and there are no additional taxes for foreigners when investing in real estate in Turkey, whether on transfer of ownership, sale or inheritance.

In this article from Taksim Real Estate Consulting, we showcase the property transfer tax in Turkey, its rate, how it is calculated, in addition to the documents required to complete the property transfer procedures; Follow with us.

What is the property transfer tax in Turkey?

This is a tax imposed at the time of registration of the property at the Land Registry Department, known as the Title Deed in Turkey, estimated at 4% of the value of the property, paid by both the buyer and the seller..

However, it is traditionally the case that only the buyer pays the property tax, unless otherwise agreed between the two parties.

It should be noted that this tax is linked to the transfer of ownership of the property; therefore, legal heirs pay it when registering the title deed in their name instead of the deceased owner, as part of the inheritance procedures in Turkey.

Additional costs when transferring ownership of the title deed

From 2021 onwards, an additional service charge of 23.50 Turkish liras has been levied for the revolving fund, in addition to the 171.25 Turkish liras, to be paid equally between the seller and the buyer, unless otherwise agreed.

How are property transfer taxes calculated?

Property transfer tax charge = the purchase amount of the title deed x the specified tax rate + 194.75 liras additional service charge. Example:

If the price of the property is registered in the title deed at a value of 100 thousand Turkish liras, the transfer tax is equal to:

 (100,000 x 0.4) + 194.75 = 4194.75 Turkish Liras, to be paid in equal parts by the seller and the buyer, unless there is an agreement that stipulates otherwise.

Documents required for the transfer of ownership of real estate in Turkey

The procedures for transferring ownership of real estate in Turkey require the submission of a set of documents, both for the seller and the buyer, which are as follows:

Documents required from the seller of the property:

1. Original or copy of title deed

2. A personal photo

3. Original and copy of identity card or passport

 4. Earthquake insurance document (DASK)

5. Property valuation document

            Documents required from the buyer:

         1.Two (2) personal photos

             2.Original and copy of passport translated and certified by a notary.

 

If a real estate agent is acting on behalf of the seller or buyer, he/she is required to present an official power of attorney certified by a notary.

This presentation has been a comprehensive overview of everything related to the property transfer tax in Turkey, and the required documents; in the aim that the procedures to own a real estate unit are completed.
