We asked expats what a typical home or apartment in Turkey is like. They answered...

"Expat homes and apartments in Turkey tend to be modern and comfortable, with many featuring balconies or terraces with views of the city or sea. Many expats choose to live in larger cities such as Istanbul, Ankara, and Izmir, where they can find a variety of housing options, from luxury apartments to more affordable options. Expat homes and apartments typically come with all the necessary amenities, such as air conditioning, internet access, and modern appliances. Additionally, many expats choose to live in gated communities, which offer additional security and amenities such as swimming pools and gyms," remarked another expat who made the move to Turkey.

"3 bed modern Apartment, centrally located on a compound. Most expats go for compound living as all the facilities are there (swimming pools, shops, tennis etc.) and also because it is an easier enviornment to make friends. There are many compounds that have villas also with the same facilities," explained one expat living in Istanbul, Turkey.
