Basaksehir is a district on the European side of Istanbul. It was created in 2008 after separating from Kucukcekmece due to its growing size and increasing demographic figure. With a population of slightly less than half a million, Basaksehir is today a residential area that has become a popular destination for young workers looking for affordable rent in an area that is relatively close to their workplace.
There are many reasons that have made Basaksehir so appealing to foreign investors. We can name a few, starting with the huge numbers of real estate projects and infrastructure development that have taken place in the last few years. This has led to a major increase in size and population which made Başakşehir a vibrant area with its standalone daily life amenities. If you’re a foreigner and you are looking for a residential area that has relatively newer and recently-constructed projects and a fresh infrastructure, then Başakşehir might be the right place for you. And it’s not just that; if you’re also looking for tenants after investing in Basaksehir or might just consider resale within a certain period, that won’t be a problem. In fact, the value of property in Basaksehir is continuously increasing due to the growing interest in the area and the infrastructure developments. Finding rent is also easy due to its closeness to the other areas of Istanbul and connections to the highways and public transportation system.
Basakşehir is connected to the other regions of Istanbul, mainly through the Basin Express, TEM Highway, and the Northern Marmara Motorway. As for public transportation, you can easily access central areas in Istanbul by using the metro line. If you buy property in Basaksehir, you won’t just have one but two metro lines available, the M3 and the recently constructed and highly advanced M9 Metro line, which will connect you to the M1 line and therefore the rest of Istanbul’s transportation system. This will enable you to get from Basaksehir to Taksim in less than 45 minutes, making very distant regions seem so close!
