Total of 624,769 housing units sold in January June period, according to TurkStat data.

A total of 624,769 residential properties in Turkey were sold in the first half of 2020, the country's statistical authority announced on Tuesday.
Housing sales increased 23.5% or 118,973 units in the six-month period year-on-year, according to the Turkish Statistical Institute (TurkStat) data.
During the first six months of this year, 197,772 new housing units were sold, while the remaining were second-hand sales.
Istanbul -- Turkey's largest city by population and a top tourist center -- took the lion's share in housing sales with 106,311 units over the same period.
Official data showed the capital Ankara and the Aegean province of Izmir followed Istanbul with 69,078 and 39,331 housing sales, respectively.
Mortgaged housing sales were recorded at 266,734 -- a 42.5% share of all sales over the same period.
In June, housing sales increased rapidly by 109.7% to reach 190,012 units -- 58,632 new and around 131,400 second-hand -- on a yearly basis.
Turkish state-lenders lowered interest rates for housing loans in June -- 0.64% for new houses and 0.74% for second-hand houses -- and extended loan's maturity up to 15 years.
Treasury and Finance Minister Berat Albayrak said low interest rates took effect and housing sales last month reached the historical high recorded in any June so far.
The minister tweeted that housing sector also influences 250 subsectors.
House sales to foreigners
In January-June, 14,262 housing units were bought by foreigners, down from 19,952 units from the first half of 2019.

Iranian citizens were top buyers of Turkish properties with 2,628 housing sales. Iraqis, Chinese, Azerbaijanis, and Russians were among the top five.
