"Investments to the sector increase as the opportunities increase"
Indicating his satisfaction with the interest of foreign investors to the new project pre-publicity and existing projects in Dubai Cityscape Global 2015 and his opinions related to the trade fair, Soyak Holding CEO M. Emre Çamlıbel said, "We are expecting an important growth globally for the real estate sector especially in the emerging markets until the year 2020 with the impact of swift urbanization and demographic changes, as well as an increase in the investments made to the sector. Turkey is a country with several advantages for the foreign investors with its growing economy, demographic properties, qualified labor, investment climate open for innovations, geographical position, Europe's energy corridor, low tax rates, and the high domestic market share." Stating that the Turkish real estate sector will receive a new global dimension with the projects such as Istanbul Finance Center, 3rd bridge and new airport, Çamlıbel continued, "As a brand carrying out works that bring sustainability and innovation together, through the Dubai Cityscape Global 2015 trade fair we entered to the Middle East market with high dynamics. We believe that we found the opportunity in here to share both the existing projects on sale and the details of our Northern Bahçeşehir project with the foreign investors."
Pointing out that the interest of Gulf has increased with the increase in US dollar exchange rate, Çamlıbel said, "Residence permit, housing loan for foreigners, and sales bureaucracy related to the foreigners are the three issues that are very important for us. Government's support is needed for these three issues in order to make the demand from the Gulf sustainable. If a considerable improvement is provided related to these three issues, then the level of real estate based foreign capital entry would quickly increase from 4-5 billion dollars level to 10-15 billion dollars level. Foreigners buying a house in Turkey make a general contribution to the economy by traveling to Turkey using Turkish airline companies, buying goods from our country, and visiting the other cities as tourists. In addition to this, please note that the industrial production is supported as the materials produced in our country are used while producing the houses sold to the foreigners. Contribution of house sales to the foreigners both to the tourism and employment should not be ignored."
