This was accompanied by the issuance of a package of laws that attract foreign investors to its various sectors .
The real estate sector in Turkey , which has received a large share of the economic renaissance , has become the focus of attention of investors from all over the world . Besides , the Turkish real estate sector has received the largest share of the laws that encourage investment . Perhaps the most important one is tax cuts , and granting Turkish citizenship in exchange for a real estate investment of $ 250.000 .
With the increase in demand for buying Turkish real estate by foreign nationalities , we face the following question : What is the reason for some nationalities going to buy real estate in Turkey ?
