Bodrum property is the silent killer of destinations; no noise no fuss, but more foreign property buyers to the square miles than many of its competitors. When it comes to Turkey, and other holiday home/holiday home investment (AKA fly to let) investment destinations, the package is very simple:
Find a destination with growing tourism, close to a well serviced airport and with a long season. If property also happens to be cheap in that place then you are definitely on to a winner, and you are onto a winner in Bodrum.
Bodrum International Airport is one of the best services airports in Turkey, with regular flights from airports across the UK and Europe, including a wide array of budget flights.
Located on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, Bodrum gets a solid 300 days of sunshine per year, giving it a very long season, and even better the resort areas are alive all year round, so if you want to rent out your property in peak times and use it in low season, you won't be stuck in a baron wasteland -- you would be surprised how many people have been caught out with this one, you ask a Brit how he would enjoy a two week holiday without a pint of milk for his tea.
Of course, all that only matters if you plan to rent out your property, if you don't you can be far less choosy when it comes to destinations. However, as most people who buy an overseas property will want to rent it out at least some of the time when they are not using it, if only just to keep it aired, we felt it best to cover this aspect first.
However, whether you plan to rent out your property or not, you are still looking for the same thing; it stands to reason that a place with growing tourism is an attractive place to holiday. 300 days of sunshine and a well serviced airport within minutes is a plus to everyone.
On top of that Bodrum is packed with attractions, including something for everyone. On top of the sun, sea and sand, you have culture and historical sites like Myndos Gate and the Bodrum Amphitheatre, as well as the chance to learn how archaeologists work at the Institute of Nautical Archaeology (INA). This is of course on top of the activities including horse riding, diving and boat trips that can be taken from the gorgeous marina, and a wide array of shops and restaurants.
