Who are we?

Housing Developers and Investors Organization (KONUTDER) was found on 9th June 2011 by 16 big housing producers of Turkey and 47 real persons representing these producers. KONUTDER members, who play an important role for producing branded residences in a considerable amount in Turkey, have put their signature under building over 200 thousand residences so far. The member companies of KONUTDER who provide approximately 3 billion dollars per annum for Turkish economy provide employment opportunity to approximately 30 thousand people directly or indirectly.

KONUTDER was found as a platform that will make the sound of this sector louder and that eliminate all complications for a healthy growing. While housing sector has made a lot of progress with the projects developed within each period, it also faces so much trouble including the structural or cyclical problems. The solution of the troubles requires a broad-based partnership. KONUTDER take the required steps to overcome these troubles, act commonly with share holders and make attempts to provide the appropriate conditions that mean maximum benefit for all consumers. KONUTDER have been a respectable non-governmental organization in which specific companies that make business in this sector, have common goals and share common troubles are banded together for the first time. We have started to handle the issues that we cannot solve individually and that make acting together mandatory. We think that the development for civilized living areas is possible with corporate and professional investors and that there is a requirement for providing a consistent and sustainable investment ambience for this to happen. And we also are aware that one or two bad examples which are among the companies making business in this sector may provide a huge loss of trust and damage to this sector. So we intend to become a specific structure where the housing developer and investor companies have self discipline and also where these structures make all specifications comply with minimum quality standards without the necessity of public intervention for both short and long terms.
