Turkey property grew in popularity by an astonishing 154% according to the latest figures on property searches by British people on overseas property portal Property Index. The figures echo our own statistics released earlier this month, which showed a major increase in searches for Turkey property Q1 2009 compared to Q4 2008.
Turkey has been named several times recently in the top ten destinations for tourism. Turkey is also rapidly growing into one of the most popular countries with overseas property buyers, despite the credit crunch gloom.
The rising popularity of Turkish property is evidenced by the amount of press coverage it is getting.
Last week the Daily Mail published a feature on the rising number of people buying retirement property in Turkey, and interviewed our own Julian Walker. Our recent statistics having shown property in the south and south west of Turkey as seeing the fastest and biggest rise in popularity.
HomesOverseas will feature us and Turkey next month, and this month’s A Place in the Sun is arguably focussed on Turkey.
The popularity of property in Turkey is unsurprising to those in the know. With high quality properties available from under £20,000 and well over 20million visitors per year, and an economy proving resistant to the credit-crunch, we see Turkey’s growing popularity continuing well into the future.
