Among the fifteen Turkish provinces that have access to the black sea (except Istanbul), Trabzon has many specialties that give it a unique position in Turkey and the whole region. The amazing and wonderful nature would be the first to attract anyone to Trabzon, the thick dark green forests on the mountains, the dark blue sea, the green fields, the waterfalls, the clear beautiful lakes, all make a fascinating combination that makes people eager to visit or live in. Its irresistible beauty has been successfully attracting people to live in Trabzon for more than four thousand years till our days. The city was an important part of all the states that governed it, like Romans, Bezants, and Ottomans. Trabzon had a special position in each of those states, sometimes as a capital, and sometimes as a commercial city, and as a gateway between the east and the west through its seaport, and by hosting the caravans traveling to the Far East, which used to pass by or settle in the city. In our days, additional to tourism, crops like “tea and hazelnut” and their products form a big part of the city’s income, added to some other animal products and honey.
Trabzon is based on a valley next to the sea and at the foot of a series of mountains, this made the city expand in a horizontal way along the coast, and in a vertical way by having more floors in its buildings. In the city center, there is a majority of low to mid-rise buildings with four to six floors, except for a few old neighborhoods where we can find lower buildings or single old houses. New and modern complexes had been constructed in the extended parts of the city in the last few years. While villa options are more spread higher in the mountains escaping the city crowds and getting a special view of the city and the sea. We can also find some shore houses that enjoy direct access to the sea.
Apartment options of one-bedroom size or more are available in the city buildings at the center and the outer neighborhoods. Either it is a single building or a residential complex, buildings in Trabzon are not very close to each other, and the chances of getting a sea view are high for most of the apartments. Modern residential complexes are more found in the expansions of the city rather than the center. "Yomra" district in the east and "Akcaabat" in the west are good examples.
Although the sea view is usually the most attractive view and people prefer to live closer to the sea to get a better and more open sea view. The situation is not exactly the same in Trabzon, where you can get farther or higher from the sea to get a better view. Villas are available more in the inner and higher sides of the city towards the mountains, where the buildings are less, life is calm, and the view is better. Villas of various sizes can be found single or within complexes.
People dreaming of coming back to nature and natural lifestyle would find what they are looking for in Trabzon, where they can be closer to the plants, waters, sky, and weather. The beautiful natural combination of forest and sea or lake view is at its best in the top of the mountains of Trabzon and this is where the most luxurious properties are located. Mid-size villas or big villas with multiple floors are found single or within complexes and may have gardens, pools, facilities, and all with high-quality finishing.
Trabzon has a long history as a commercial city and has an international port and an international airport, which made it the main trading hub in the region. This made the city a suitable place for hundreds of companies’ headquarters and branches. Commercial properties of all categories can be found in Trabzon, offices, shops, cafes, restaurants, workshops, factories, stores, whole floors or buildings, which reflects the variability of business activities in the city.
Offices in Trabzon are available mainly in the center of the city, which could be found in some old commercial buildings or new modern business centers. Variable options of shops and stores are available in the big industrial, commercial, and tourist city. Restaurants and cafes, furniture and appliances stores, supermarkets, workshops, and others. Each of the previously mentioned commercial or industrial activities is part of the market needs and demands in Trabzon.
Trabzon and some of its neighbors in the east part of The Black Sea like Rize are the main producers of Tea and Turkey, thanks to the humid atmosphere and the rainy weather that Tea tree prefers. Turkey is the world’s eighth in producing Tea. Trabzon lands are growing another worldwide important crop "Hazelnut", from which Turkey is producing more than 70 percent of the world’s total production. Factories of tea, hazelnut, or hazelnut oil, and many other industries locally and worldwide are depending on these crops in their production. People interested in farming or industries related to it may find good opportunities in Trabzon lands or factories. Lands options also include the residential lands which are available in different locations in the city, and are found in various sizes and features fitting personal buildings or big developments.

Having a commercial property in the city center or on the main connecting roads of the province would for sure be profitable in both short and long terms. Investing in modern residential projects would also be a good investment in the growing city that longs for more of these developments.
