The new Netflix release, ‘Empires Rising: Ottoman’ is achieving notable new ‘firsts’ for the Istanbul and Turkish film industry. During the first full week of streaming, the six episode drama-documentary ranked 4th among top trending TV shows in the United States overall, briefly 2nd among Netflix shows, and 6th in binge viewing.
The impact of positive media projection upon property values in a specific location needs no explanation: the examples are evidenced far and wide. The more important question is whether that success is repeatable. If so, then Istanbul as a property investment location could well be on its way to assuming the status of a top global investment location, on par with the likes of Miami, London, Hong Kong, etc.
The production is notable for its apparent success in unifying different international audiences for Turkish productions, having grown over the last five years through the Middle East, and then Spain, Latin & South America. Achieving Netflix international objectives, Ottoman Rising is capturing viewing audiences in Northern Europe and North America, extending around the world to include India and Asia.
So the question remains, what potential is there for a repeat success? This article examines the issues more closely: funding, location, production, and of course the amazing Turkish actors and actresses involved... read more here!

Here's the deal...
Citizenship with Real Estate Investment...
Minimum of $250,000 invested in property, for one family ....
Turkish Passports and all rights of a Turkish Citizen...
No Minimum Annual Residency or Other Requirements...
Investors, these official Turkish governmental agency websites guide your investment & citizenship procedures. Everything else required to manage both processes safely and securely, is supported by the expert knowledge, the years of market experience, and the extensive private networks, provided for you by the Team at mytapu.com, professional foreign investors in Turkey for 31 years, since 1988
Investors, the FIRST Step of the investment process is to complete the Advance Preparations: registrations for Tax ID, Foreign ID, Bank Accounts, Authorisations, etc. This will put you in position to close the deal on a property purchase with negotiated price discounts by making a full completion payment quickly and safely, thus securing ownership cost-effectively, and with least risk. Ask the Team at mytapu to assist you with the Advance Preparations: these can be done while visiting Turkey, or can be done remotely, where you are at, now.
Email to Buy@mytapu.com.
The alternative ? The alternative is to be ‘drawn in’ to a part payment (‘reservation deposit, part payment, etc). This alternative will:a) Increase your costs and risks;
Without Advance Preparations, you will be pressured into paying a ‘reservation deposit’ or other part payment: DO NOT. Why? Read more here about why NOT to pay a reservation deposit, or part payment. Local Turkish buyers do NOT buy property this way, and do NOT pay reservation deposits. If YOU want to buy the same way, like a local Turk, read ‘The Guide’ explaining ‘How to Buy Like a Local’. Send an email to Buy@mytapu.com and ask for a Free copy of ‘The Guide, How to Buy Like a Local’.

...an 'off-market' buying opportunity at a 15% discount to other surrounding properties of similar size, of lower quality and less desirable positioning (see above). These are the market conditions to uncover liquidity driven distress sales. Finding these types of properties is what bargain hunting is all about...!
If you do not speak Turkish, and do not search using the Turkish language, what you will find is pages and pages of websites designed only to lure non-Turkish speaking foreign buyers. These are the websites of english speaking agents. They do not do business with local Turkish buyers, because no Turk will deal with them. These agents want to do business in a specific way (that is to their advantage) that is only possible with unsuspecting foreign buyers. No local Turkish buyers will buy property this way... (continue reading).
Using the internet to scan English speaking websites of property agents in Turkey is fine for ‘window shopping’, but to then start your property purchase procedure that way, is a mistake. If you do, the agent will lock you into their ‘marked-up’ prices with a falsely named ‘reservation deposit’, and what follows afterwards, is a long story of things you wish you had known before you paid, but didn’t find out until later.

With more than 30 years experience of living and doing business in Turkey and Istanbul, our advisors have the local knowledge and insights that are relevant to foreigners moving to Turkey, including many relevant aspects of Turkish Living that are often overlooked by local Turkish advisors.
To find the property meeting your family's needs, the Professional Property Finders at mytapu.com provide a complete service:
Preparation of Fact Finding Report that details those requirements and the specific locations in Istanbul or elsewhere covering all coastal locations in Turkey that match.
Identifying, presenting and arranging viewings of the properties in Istanbul and all coastal regions of Turkey. Providing the legal oversight to make sure the property is legal and the risks of transferring title, and conveyance, are properly managed.
How does a Property Finder reduce a buyers cost of purchase?
First a property finder negotiates a sales price down to save costs- so the buyer isn’t subsiding the agent’s commission as paid by the seller from a marked-up purchase price, which is otherwise the real situation, hidden from view....
Second, a property finder does the specific things required on each transaction to ensure the buyers’ rights and interests are protected, and for each of these tasks, charges simple reasonable fee. In this way the buyer is assured the work will be done on necessary things that need doing , without worrying about the much higher legal costs of having to pay for things to get done after the purchase is completed (the usual outcome).
Misrepresentation – to ensure the property buyer is not mislead by agents regarding a properties location, legal documentation, and other matters.
Legal Documentation- ensuring a property has the permits and documentation that shows the property is legally compliant.
Purchasing Procedures- to prevent agent’s leading the buyer down a path which places all the risk on the buyer and can result in a costly outcome, often requiring thousands of EUR in legal fees to rectify.
Deposits- to ensure the buyer is not required to pay a 'reservation' deposit and to if necessary, to ensure it is not done so without a legally valid contract.
Legal Contracts- to prevent the practice of agent's contracts which do not protect the buyers deposit or rights and are not executed in a legally valid manner.
Valuations- to provide valid appraisal reports essential for Citizenship investors , avoiding agents common practice of arriving at their own valuations based on nothing more than a whim for sales purposes, while all along a legal and appraised valuation report is never discussed or mentioned.
Payment & Banking- to advise and assist the buyer in establishing bank accounts and arranging payment documentation for the property purchase.
High pressure tactics- to reduce the effect of psychological tricks and sales tactics used by agents to get a deposit.
A professional Property Finder knows not just which questions to ask, and which issues to check, but knows where to get the documentary proof, and how to cross check and apply it, under different circumstances. This is especially important because every property purchase transaction is different, which is because Turkey is only slowly moving towards the type of standardisation that is common in many more developed countries.

The Process of obtaining Citizenship in Turkey
by investing in property is relatively simple.
The following Frequently asked Questions (FAQs)
will provide answers to many of the issues requiring clarification.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)- Citizenship Property Investment Türkiye
1) Are there checks on a person’s background? Answer: During the process a check on an individual’s suitability will be conducted. This is a check for criminal records and similar things that may dis-qualify an applicant, for the reason that the applicant is a threat to national security. No financial information or declarations of asset or income are required.
2) Are there any restrictions on the property invested in? Answer: Any type of real estate ownership is acceptable, commercial, rental, etc with the requirement that the investor not sell the property for three years, and this is evidenced by a notation placed next to the ownership registration details at the Land Registry, and he record of this accompanies the application.
3) Is the application process complicated? Answer: This is a newly established 'Fast Track' process and is relatively simple and straight-forward, the application just has to be checked and confirmed by three government administrations for coordination and issue of Citizenship and Passport documentation: Tapu Office, the General Directorate of Land Registry and Cadastre, and the Ministry of interior.

- 4 passport-size photos of each member of family
- Birth certificates
- Residence permit or valid Tourist Visa Stamp in your passport
- Documents proving your relationships (marriage license)
- Application tax payment receipt
- Application Form
-Proof of Investment
4) Do I need to deal with the application process myself in Turkey?
Answer: No, you do not need to be in Turkey, or deal with the application yourself, as it can be done by granting Power of Attorney to a local representative appointed to follow the process for you, for example appointed by mytapu.com; however you may follow it yourself in Turkey, if you choose, with the guidance provided by mytapu.com.
5) Is the application for a whole family to obtain Citizenship?
Answer: For head of Family of and all dependents (disabled children above 18 years) and minors under age of 18 on application date.
6) How long do I have to wait to receive my Turkish Passport?
Answer: The procedure is expected to take 3-6 months, while the government agencies coordinate their document processing.
7) Do I need to renounce my existing citizenship?
Answer: No- dual citizenship is acceptable in Turkey.
8) Can I live in Turkey before my Citizenship is granted?
Answer: Yes, with a Residence Permit, granted upon completion of investment, a simple procedure commonly used by foreign property owners in Turkey, or more simply, on a Tourist Visa. There is no requirement to spend a certain numbers of days or time in Turkey.
9) How much is the minimum investment?
Answer: $ 250,000 equivalent in Turkish Lira, for one or more properties totalling more than $250,000, with one application for all.
Answer: The proof must be by bank transfer or banking documentary payment showing payment details. The value of the payment in Turkish Lira is calculated in US Dollars at the Central Bank’s effective rate on the date of the application. The proof of amount invested is confirmed by a licensed Appraisal Company, that submits an independent valuation of the property. Appraised values have been known to differ by as much as 20% from the sales prices charged by agents and developers, which is because they inflate their sales prices with top-ups above market prices as commission additions, and so it is very important to ensure your purchase price is not inflated by these top-up commissions, and is at market value. A purchase of a property for $250,000 that is appraised at a valuation of 20% less would be only $200,000,and insufficient for Citizenship application. In other words, buying a property that is priced at 20% over market valuations would mean it is necessary to buy at a price of $312,500 or more, to qualify for the minimum investment of $250,000.
