The Europeans put on the brakes in 2012
The Europeans, who buy many properties in Turkey despite the economic crisis, put on the brakes in 2012. In the regions including Fethiye, the foreigners bought more than 81 million square metres of real properties in August, but in the last twelve months they have bought only 9 million square metres of real property. The Europeans, who bought properties in big amounts in the last few years, have almost stopped.

The total amount of the real estates the foreigners have bought so far has risen from 19,000 to 20,000. The German and the English are the first to buy real properties in Turkey.
