The average rental prices in Turkey increased to 159 percent in the month of October 2022, reported the Hurriyet Daily News. A combined study conducted by the Center for Economic and Social Research (BETAM) at Bahcesehir University and sahibinden.com, a classified advertisements platform, indicated that rentals rose to 62.2 TL per square meter on average this year. 

In Istanbul, Ankara, and Izmir the annual rent increase was 145.6 percent, 168.4 percent, and 158.6 percent, respectively. However, on average, the annual rental increase moderated from 166.4 percent in September this year. 

The average rentals per square meter are 42.9 Turkish Lira in Ankara, 62.1 Turkish Lira for Izmir, and 88.8 Turkish Lira for Istanbul properties. 

The demands of landlords renting homes are beyond the expectations of tenants. Some landlords are even asking tenants to bring a civil servant cosigner, someone with a fixed income, which is a requirement that a tenant cannot meet. A real estate agent in Ankara confirmed that 7 out of 10 people looking for apartments are coming back empty-handed as they fail to find a cosigner for the property they wish to rent. 

The government in Turkey is taking strides to increase the number of houses to control the rise in rental prices in the country. A project called ‘My first home, my first workplace project’ was announced in November 2022, and 500.000 houses are being built, including 50.000 workplaces in 81 provinces.
