Sisli is an upscale and highly sought-after cosmopolitan district in Istanbul on the European side, bordering with other well-known districts such as Besiktas to the east, Sariyer to the north, and Beyoglu to the south. Sisli is a preferred destination of Istanbul’s real estate market due to its central location, proximity to historical landmarks, high rental returns, superior local amenities, and great transportation links. Known as an entertainment center and for its upscale hotels, restaurants, and bars, and popular for its high-end shopping centers, including the Cevahir mall, Trump AVM, and the exclusive quarters of Nisantasi offering an all-around privileged lifestyle of high standards.
Abdi İpekçi Street in Nisantasi is Turkey's most expensive shopping street. Property prices in Sisli tend to be considerably higher than in the other districts. It's important to weigh these factors while deciding on which area to buy property in Istanbul. If the aim is investing in a trendy central location regardless of the high prices, then the Sisli district may be the right location. However, if the aim is buying a property and realizing a capital gain in a relatively short period, then we may suggest some alternative districts in Istanbul instead.
