Demand Accumulated with Pandemic Increases the Expected Increase in Housing Sales with the Fall of Interest
There was an expectation for an increase in housing sales due to falling interest rates. This increase was over 200% according to Tuik data. The main reason for this is that the demand that started before the panel was interrupted by the pandemic. The monthly sales that should be between 120 and 130 thousand levels are between 40 and 50 thousand in the pandemic period. With this accumulated demand, sales were realized as we expected with the low interest rate announced by the public banks. We see that the biggest part of this increase is sales of mortgaged housing.
Zero Housing Achieves at 3 / 1rd of Organic Demand
In zero housing figures, the situation is at the rate of 2,5/3 of the last 1 years. This situation shows us that the production of new houses is currently below the organic need, because the new housing is not being produced.

What did we do in the last 10-15 years when we talked about Istanbul? We transformed the factory lands in Kartal, Ümraniye, Kağıthane-Cendere, Topkapı and Bayrampaşa into houses. Press Ekpress in the same way. Unfortunately, we have finished these industrial areas roughly in the coming period, 90-95 percent of these lands turned into houses; There is a shortage of producing land in the places we will call the first and second regions of the city where they can reach without losing time in traffic.
“Housing Price Increase will accelerate between Kartal Courthouse and Press Express”
How are we going to produce this land in this region now? With urban transformation; However, it is difficult and long time to produce land based on urban transformation. Expectations of land owners and legislation prevent the process from proceeding fast as desired and expected. Unfortunately, the difficulty of producing land in the city center in Istanbul, where people can reach without losing much time in traffic, will unfortunately accelerate the price increases in the area between Kartal courthouse and Basın Ekspres. ”
