Umraniye, on the Asian side of Istanbul, is growing and expanding at one of the fastest rates in Turkey. Buyers looking for real estate in Ümraniye Istanbul and apartments for sale in Istanbul Ümraniye are eager to sign on the dotted line to take advantage of a strategic location, as well as modern architecture befitting of an urban lifestyle.
It is hard to imagine bustling Umraniye in the past, yet it started life as a small village with a population of 1000. In the 1970s, the population grew even bigger when it became an industrial town. However, this day, it is more of a white-collar community, with many residents working in business and service sectors, therefore boosting the population count to 650.000 people. The developing district offers a good place to invest by buying flats in Ümraniye.
In the last decade, infrastructure was upgraded to cope with the expected demand of Umraniye property owners and shopping malls, sports centers, children’s park and culture centers have become core community features. Umraniye separates into 35 smaller neighborhoods and is surrounded by the famous Uskudar district to the west, of which it used to belong to till it expanded.
The price per square meter of property for sale in Ümraniye Istanbul is higher than other districts but understandable because it is a business and working hub. Umraniye, along with neighboring Ataşehir is also one of the locations covering the planned Istanbul Financial Centre, a mega project of Turkey to build an economic hub that will rival Wall Street in New York.
The demand by real estate investors keen to cash in on the mega-project, before it begins is partly responsible for driving prices up. However, working professionals and families can still find the affordable real estate in Ümraniye Istanbul, starting at roughly 95.000 Euros and including 24 month and 36 months credit. Villas in Ümraniye rarely feature in its real estate portfolio, yet people looking for apartments in Ümraniye for sale are tapping into the latest, modern styles of Turkey’s architectural trends. The developing district offers a good place to invest by buying an apartment or Umraniye villa for sale.
Umraniye is close to both Bosphorus bridges and while traffic jams are a common sight at rush hours, getting out and about is easy because of an excellent bus network. Foreign owners of property in Umraniye Istanbul also use Sabiha Gökçen airport, just 30 minutes away, that in recent years has modernized itself and increased year-round flight schedules to several countries. Otherwise, another favorite method of transport is quick and cheap ferries from nearby Üsküdar and Kadiköy, leaving every day to the European side of Istanbul.
Ümraniye has many small, local shops that still contribute towards a healthy community feel but large shopping malls now attract many people to buy Ümraniye apartments for sale because of their abundance of places to eat, shop and be entertained under one roof. Buyaka AVM on the outskirts of Umraniye features five floors with shops selling everything and anything from clothes to electronics to household goods.
Another favorite is Palladium sitting in nearby Ataşehir which has 190 shops as well as a 10-screen cinema. Of course, you can still take your pick because many more are within driving distance includes the home shopping store Ikea, Brandium, Novada, Water Garden and Real Meydan.
Given that Umraniye is part of Turkeys largest and busiest city, there is never a shortage of things to do, and every hobby enthusiast can indulge their passion. However, at the weekends, locals of Umraniye especially love Camlica hill, sitting nearby, that has a fantastic view of the Golden Horn and Bosphorus.
Another favorite weekend pursuit is to catch the ferry from Kadikoy to Princess Island, a place devoid of all the tell tales signs of city living. Famous for its car-free roads, and old Ottoman mansion architecture, seaside fish restaurants make a roaring trade from Istanbul property owners.
Families also enjoy the many leisurely pursuits of Aydos forest, a 30-minute drive away. Including picnics, paintball, and mountain biking, it's feeling of being at one with nature makes it easy to forget you are in Turkey’s largest city.
