Property in Turkey is rated third top place to buy according to A Place In The Sun and also gaining rave reviews from magazines, tabloids, and broadsheet media Turkey has certainly well and truly headed up the property radar.
Bucking the trend, Turkey?s property market is receiving more inquiries than 2007 although the market in the UK is under pressure a pattern is emerging and some countries, Turkey included is starting to see benefit from certain sectors.
The buy to let sector is one of those and the first time buyer is also looking at Turkey, the country is also steeped in history and culture and the prospect of culture shock should not be underestimated. Spend some time in Turkey if you intent to move there or even spend a lot of time there.
As in other developing countries Turkey is opening up with low cost airlines infrastructure, golf resorts and much more the tourism figures have been growing steadily over the past ten years and rapidly in the last few. Considering the still relatively low amount of budget airlines the buy to let and holiday market is still outpacing virtually all of its competitors. In fact Turkey was in fact ahead of the Canary islands.
Also given that finance seems to be more readily available in the Turkish property market perhaps a good hard look at investment opportunities is not a bad idea.
Turkey is a republic and is a bridge between Europe and Asia culturally it still has its roots firmly in the east however more than any of its neighbours it is integrating with the west. While Turkey is known for sandy beaches and sunshine it also has huge areas of mountains with stunning panorama and snowy peaks.
The Black sea coast is the least unspoilt of turkeys coastlines and is truly beautiful but the Mediterranean or Turquoise coast is both hotter and longer therefore has more visitors both local and foreign.
The southern coast of Turkey, which meets the Mediterranean Sea is the most popular of the two coastlines. It’s longer, hotter and livelier. The coastline is extremely attractive, the weather is reliably excellent and there’s plenty to see and do. Known as the “Turquoise coast”, due to the beautiful blue green waters, it is the destination of choice for many of Turkey’s holidaying natives, as well as hundreds of foreign visitors.
Every year, tourists from around Europe, and especially Britain, take advantage of the huge number of cheap holidays that appear in estate agent’s windows, holiday brochures and travel websites. Places such as the city of Antalya are deemed major playgrounds for tourists and serve as a base for several nearby attractions. The area has varied nightlife featuring everything from belly dancers to techno-music clubs that continue until sunrise; scuba diving including some wreck dives from the Bronze age, and an incredible cave system with underground lakes and caverns full of stalactites and stalagmites.
