Turkey has a mind boggling taxes on cars. That's why this country has the most expensive cars in the world. It is impossible to buy a Volkswagen Golf 1.4 with 250.000 TL. It is probably around 450.000 TL.

Because of the earthquake that happened last year and ongoing economic crisis in Turkey you can't find a decent 1 bedroom apartment in city center under 2000 TL and 3 bedrooms are probably going to be around 3500-4000 TL.

It's hard to guage up to date prices in Izmir especially when everything changes so quickly.But since corona prices have dropped drastically since fewer businesses are open.I don't believe Izmir tourism will be back for many years people afraid to visit anywhere and staying at home is the new norm.

cost of living in IZMIR for a family of four is much higher then above estimation.if you want to live as an upper medium class then this family shall provide at least 8000 TL per month (rent included).and if you have children ,for private education and universities you shall pay much more.

Generally speaking; Salaries are not capable to cover expenses. So, the question is "How can they survive?" The answer is most of the people use bank loans, sell their estates, and so on! On the other hand, there are more than two people working monthly or daily in a house. Life is going on in this way.

Prices for car, communication,alcohol and basic utilities have changed a lot. Simply you cant buy golf for 150k TL

There's strange but! These are average statistics for both expenses and salary, but average salary is lower than average costs. Then how do people afford living there? Do all of them only get the chance to continue living without saving or investing? Correct me if I'm mistaken, please.

Apartment/flat prices have improved last years. İzmir is more affordable compared to İstanbul.
