Turkey Sees 22% Spike in Property Sales from Foreign Home Buyers

Turkey saw a 22% spike in home sales to foreign buyers in 2017, according to a year-end report from the Turkish Statistical Institute, or Turk Stat.

In January 2017, the government enacted a new initiative whereby foreigners could get Turkish citizenship in exchange for buying a home for the equivalent of US$1 million or more.

Interviewing A Billion Dollar Company CEO, Engineer Dr Sani Sener of TAV Companies

By Gediz Karaca, MSc * - Without the benefit of experience in business management, it can be easy to underestimate the importance of the decision-making processes in companies. These processes can appear easy to master when judged by the standard of their respective results. As a young businessman with limited experience, I would argue that decision-making is indeed one of the trickiest duties of all.

Young professionals have much to learn and benefit from senior business people’s experience in these matters: how to behave, how to forecast, and how to make successful business-critical decisions without suffering significant losses.
