Turkey home sales to foreigners soar 82pct in Jan

Homes sold in Turkey to foreign nationals soared 82 percent last month with Istanbul drawing most of the business, according to the latest figures from the country's statistics office.

A slide in the Turkish lira against the dollar to record lows last summer prompted a spike in demand for Turkish homes from foreign buyers though the currency has recovered about a third of losses since then.
