“Istanbul residents wanted to be closer to nature and the sea during the epidemic process”
Speaking in the statement, Hurriyet Emlak Co-General Manager Zeynep Tandogan stated that they observed that Beykoz and Sariyer, especially Beykoz and Sariyer, from the districts of Istanbul, were constantly valued last year, ‘The search for housing in these two districts saw the highest level of the last 5 years during the epidemic. These searches peaked in May and June. The high demand has also increased the prices in the region.”
Stating that Istanbul residents wanted to be closer to nature and the sea during the epidemic process in which they stayed in their homes, Tandogan noted that the districts that are within walking distance to the beach are particularly attractive.
Tandogan said that the sales figures of villas with gardens in Beykoz and Sariyer increased by more than 100% and that the recent earthquakes have also encouraged low-rise living.
Touching on the big change in rental housing prices, Tandogan said:
The demand for rental houses in Bagcilar, Gaziosmanpasa, Esenyurt, and Avcilar has increased enormously in the last year. The most important reason for this is urban transformation. Families whose homes are in urban transformation in these regions or nearby areas have increased the demand for rental houses. As the number of rental houses decreased, rents increased. Pandemic also has a high impact on this. So much so that, as the start of new construction was delayed due to the pandemic, it became difficult to find rental houses in these regions. Especially in Bagcilar, the rent increase for houses close to the metro and tram has increased the average considerably. When we look at Basaksehir, Bahcesehir side of this district is mostly white-collar. People who started working from home started to move to more comfortable homes and the market became active. Basaksehir Cam and Sakura City Hospital, the first stage of which was opened in Basaksehir on April 20, also caused an increase in house prices in the surrounding area.
When we look at Atasehir, which is the district with the highest price increase on the Anatolian Side, we again see the effect of pandemic and earthquake fear. The abundance of new buildings in Atasehir attracted families who were afraid of earthquakes and lived in old buildings on the Anatolian side to these areas. On the other hand, it has become an attractive region for those who want to spend a lot of time at home and move to more comfortable homes during the pandemic process.”
