For the best part of two decades, Istanbul has been the success story of Turkish property. International buyers, increasingly from the Middle East, flooded into the vibrant ‘gateway to the west’, lured by a new crop of luxury homes, a boom in prices—and stunning waterfront views.

As a result, property price growth has averaged 23.6% per year since 2010.
