Top Tips for Investing in Commercial Real Estate in Bursa 

There are some key points to consider while purchasing a commercial property for your business. 

• The number of customers determines your income, be visible! 

The location is a major fact that affects your income in two aspects. 

First, your rental income from the tenant depends on the location. It will be more profitable if a property is located on the main road, in the city center or a highly demanded touristic spot. The population increases in parallel with the number of construction. In the long haul, newly developing regions in Bursa are also very promising. 

The second aspect is that a place with high visibility and accessibility will increase the number of customers. Your local real estate agent with great market knowledge will be familiar with all commercial properties that have high demand potential. 

• Lack of knowledge about financial opportunities and payment options will cost you money and time

Construction companies usually cooperate with well-established real estate companies. They arrange seasonal discounts, payment plans with a small amount of downpayment and installments, etc.

You will be informed about flexible payment options while working with a professional real estate company. This way you can make a room in your budget for decorations and other necessities. 

• Analyze the local market for no regrets. 

You may wonder what do we mean by “analyzing the local market”?

We suggest you analyze the market before getting into the big-budget enterprise. After becoming a property owner you may wonder if there is a better option, even if you have all the information out in the online browsers. 

In this case, online sources may not be enough to be familiar with the local sector. Working with a professional advisor also comes in handy at this point. These experts will help you to find the best option in the local market. A professional real estate agent will be familiar with the new projects, resale properties, discounted options, and up-and-coming investment regions.

But how does this great potential become a reason for profitable commercial investment in Bursa? And also, in which ways can you profit if you buy a commercial property? Let’s discuss the advantages of investing in commercial real estate in Bursa. 

• Your property will be more valuable when you want to sell it. 

The number of construction and values of properties is always increasing in Turkey due to the high interest from local and foreign visitors. Especially in Bursa, the major industrial and touristic city in Marmara after İstanbul, the properties are worth more each passing year. Increasing property values is one of the major benefits of investing in commercial real estate in Bursa. 

In January 2020, the average value of a commercial property per sqm was 3.639 TL. In comparison, the average value of a commercial unit per sqm increased to 7.318 TL in January 2022. 

The values nearly doubled themselves within 2 years and that shows great profit opportunity. But it is important to keep in mind that the value can vary depending on the location, space, design, and features of your real estate.

• High interest in the city is perfect for retail businesses.

The city is famous for its top-quality silk products as well as its historical background. As a former Byzantine city and the first Ottoman capital, the city is filled with cultural heritage. The exquisite architectural ruins which were inherited from both of these greatest empires surround the city. In multiple aspects, Bursa attracts thousands of local and foreign travelers. 

In 2021, 32.9% of the foreign tourists and 56.7% of the local visitors traveled to Bursa. This high touristic demand creates a great investment opportunity with high-income potential for your new retail business.

• It is easy to find a corporate tenant to secure your rental income.

Bursa is a multicultural metropolitan city with 17 districts and 3 million residents. After İstanbul, Bursa comes in second as a city with the highest number of worldwide-known companies in the Marmara region.
