Is Buying Property in Turkey a Good Investment?

Turkey has in August, 2012 abolished Property Law restricting foreign property purchases. According to that law the citizens of countries which allows Turkish citizens to buy property, would buy in Turkey. Shortly, we call it simply "Reciprocity Rule". With the abolishment of this reciprocity rule, property investment opportunities have greatly increased in the country. Turkey's new "Property Law" also allows all foreigners to purchase up to 60 hectares of land.
