Regional information

Situated in the historic Bahcekoy town of Sariyer, this authentic region has a past going back as far as Suleyman the magnificient. The Belgrade forest was named by Sultan Suleyman himself, after settling in the region after returning from Belgrade.

Today Bahcekoy maintains its exclusive past, and is primarily occupied by elite families of Istanbul. As is the case with the majority of Sariyer, the demographics of the region are exceptionally high.

Bahcekoy is filled with private compounds of this type, with absolutely no high density construction permitted. Its proximity to the Bosphorous, and all types of amenities ensure Bahcekoy will remain an exclusive region for generations to come.

Investment information

Sariyer is home to the most expensive real estate not just in Istanbul, but probably in the world. With Bosphorus front villas changing hands for over 80 million dollars, Sariyer is up there with Champs-Elysees, Paris and Hampstead, London. With the most of Sariyer falling into a protected zone of Forests and the Bosphorus protection zone, supply of genuinely high grade homes is limited. Bosphorus front villas rarely change hands, and construction is limited in general to two storeys.

Very rarely, in areas like Maslak, and Seyrantepe, tall skyscrapers have been allowed - yet these will be restricted to a very small number. Hence upon completion, high quality complexes will be in short supply, yet demand remains very high.

This has pushed prices in the region, and this means rental yield is below the Istanbul average. A purchase in this region from an investment aspect will be based on the capital appreciation, and not the yield. Expect excellent capital appreciation in the double digits each year, and expect to be able to sell your home here a lot sooner than other regions of Istanbul.
