Factors affecting the price of an apartment in Istanbul

Many factors play an important role in determining the price of the apartment to be sold in Istanbul, and the most important of these factors are:

Neighborhood or region:

Where there are very high-end areas where the price of a square meter exceeds 2000 dollars, where to buy an apartment of 100 square meters, in the style of two rooms and a hall, you may need an amount of 200 thousand dollars if the apartment is in the Sariyer area, for example.

Likewise, when we talk about an apartment for sale in Esenyurt, we will find that it is lower in price than an apartment for sale in Beylikdüzü with the same specifications and area.

Proximity to vital areas:

The price of the apartment in Istanbul increases whenever the apartment is close to transportation or vital projects, such as hospitals, bridges, universities, entertainment cities, commercial malls, the coast or the main squares in the same neighborhood..etc.

Apartments near the metro station, for example, are more valuable than apartments far from this station in the same neighborhood, so you can measure the cost and cheapness of apartments in Istanbul if they are in one area

Is the apartment in an apartment complex?

If the apartment is in one of the Istanbul complexes, its price will certainly be much more expensive than the prices of the apartments in the same neighborhood, but outside the residential complexes

This is due to the services provided by the complex, and the special specifications for housing in Istanbul complexes, where various service facilities, recreational facilities and many advantages that add touches of happiness and comfort to those wishing to live in Istanbul are available.

Apartment interior specifications:

Also, when looking at apartments for sale in Istanbul it must be taken into account that larger spaces, for example, are more expensive, and the location of the apartment in the building plays a role in determining its price. Apartments on the third and fourth floors are more valuable than apartments on the ground floor or basement.

In addition, the interior decoration of the apartment, the distribution of rooms, and many other interior features can be the important player in determining the price of the apartment


The view of the apartment plays an important role in determining its price, as the apartments overlooking the sea have a higher price than similar apartments, but they do not have this view.

Also, the view of the green spaces is a favorite feature for those looking for apartments for sale in Istanbul and thus they appreciate the importance of paying more money to own these features.
