What is the average cost of housing in Turkey?
If you are thinking about moving to Turkey, cost of living in probably a key consideration. Expats commented about the cost of housing...
"The cost of housing in Turkey varies depending on the location and type of property. Generally, the cost of renting an apartment in a city center is higher than in the suburbs, while the cost of buying a house is higher in the suburbs than in the city center. On average, the cost of renting an apartment in Turkey is relatively affordable, while the cost of buying a house is slightly more expensive," remarked another expat in Turkey.
"Lower--because in the States I paid rent. My husband had his own home so there's no rent. Yay! However, even if we did pay rent it would be cheaper than back in the US. A person can find a nice apt. for anywhere between 450 to 600 Turkish lira. But 500 TL seems to be more of the average in our neighborhood," said a member in Izmir, Turkey.
