Integration Through Mobility

Şenyapılı, Tansı
The aim of this article is to determine the basic principles of a theory to cover the most prominent problem witnessed in the physical dimension of the urbanization process, namely "squatter housing" and "marginal sector" of underdeveloped countries which lives in this type of housing. First, we shall review the theoretical background for viewing urbanization in developing countries and then take a new stance for examining the interrelationships in economic and physical space in the formation of squatter housing. Using our basic hypothesis that relations in economic space are the main determinants for patterns and relationships in other spaces, we shall draw on the results of a survey conducted by the author in Giiltepe, a squatter housing district in Istanbul, to trace retrospectively the interplay between job mobility and housing.


Mortgage systems and the adaptation of mortgage system in Turkey : analyzing the housing loans
Çobandağ, Melike; Yılmaz, Özlem; Department of Business Administration (2010)
An efficient housing finance system has significant importance both in meeting the housing needs of individuals and in reinforcing the development of the construction, finance and other related sectors of an economy. Today, developed countries have advanced housing finance systems in which funds flow from savers to home-buyers by the mortgage markets. On the other hand, despite its recognized economic and social importance, housing finance often remains under-developed in developing countries mainly due to ...
Analyzing Housing Market Dynamics using Linear and non-Parametric Models
Yılmaz, Bilgi; Yerlikaya Özkurt, Fatma; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe (2018-10-07)
This paper analyzes the dynamic effect of macroeconomic indicators, such as financial and commodity market indicators on national housing markets. Furthermore, it does not only focus on the impact of the variables but also introduces a variety of models that based on the generalized linear models and multivariate adaptive regression splines. The models help us to identify the macroeconomic drivers of housing markets. Since the US has an adequate housing market data, the empirical analysis within the paper f...
Exploring House Price Dynamics: An Agent-Based Simulation with Behavioral Heterogeneity
Ozbakan, Tolga A.; Kale, Serdar; Dikmen Toker, İrem (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-08-01)
The objective of this study is to contribute to the understanding of price formations in housing markets through an agent-based simulation that conceptualizes insights from behavioral economics. For this purpose, the study uses a prominent real estate market model as a benchmark and extends it to account for (1) behavioral heterogeneity and (2) dynamic agent interaction. The validation of the model is carried out by using real data from the Turkish housing market. The results show that the introduction of a...
Failure of Waqfs to Adjust Rental Rates to Prices; Structural Impairment or Managerial Rigidity
Orbay, Kayhan (2017-01-01)
It is widely held view in the waqf studies that waqf institutions could not maintain their urban properties nor increase their rental income in line with price increases due to structural impairment and managerial rigidity. I argue in this paper that imperial waqfs did have ways of adapting and increasing their rent income. However, economic and commercial developments, disasters, external and coercive factors constricting the financial capacity of waqfs led to the loss of urban properties and income. Never...
Urban form, public life and urbanity: A study on Sakarya Pedestrian Area in Ankara
Coşkuner, Utku; Bilsel, Fatma Cânâ; Department of Architecture (2021-9)
Decision-making processes related with the physical arrangements and the urban form affect the city's social structure at a certain extent. In return, social transformations most obviously take the stage on the public spaces of cities that are open-to-all spaces of urban culture and are the main reason why cities define spaces of freedom. Besides the direct relationship it establishes with the public spaces of the city, the public realm is an intangible concept shaped by how the urbanites develop their comm...
