The decreased amounts of investment should be attractive for the savvy applicants, with a moderate tolerance for risk. "Turkey is in a financial crisis, with the depreciation of the Turkish Lira, the real estate investors who invested five years ago lost many of their funds. Currently, with the effect of the crisis and the depreciation, available prices for real estate investment for pleasure or as an investment seems to offer a quite good upside potential in the medium term", the expert told to imidaily.com Turkey cannot offer the advantages of the Schengen visa but the fast-developing country is an E2-treaty signatory country, and it means that Turkish citizens can obtain the right to live in the United States through the E-2 individual investment visa.
