Anyone interested in overseas property in general for whatever reason, will have read at least 1 article on Turkish property this week, and potentially a lot more.
Turkish property is most definitely one of the most talked about markets in the industry press at the moment.
It is little wonder; we have written several times about the fantastic value for money afforded by Turkish properties, because of the low prices mixed with high-quality and a large (and thriving) off plan sector.
Then you have the fact that tourism suffered only a slight set-back in 2009 (after bringing over 28million visitors in 2008) and if the wide range of new flights are anything to go by 2010 looks like being a good year for Turkish tourism. The fact that Antalya received record numbers of visitors in January and February also supports this theory. According to reports this combination is leading to rental yields of 6% on Turkish holiday villas.
Speaking of new flights to Turkey, the increasing accessibility is a strength behind buying Turkish property in itself; during the last 18 months many flights have been reduced and even cancelled, and as a result potential property investors and buyers have been advised to research how accessible their chosen region is and could be in the future before shelling out.
Turkey has no fears in this respect. There have been no flights to Turkey cancelled that we have heard of, and many flights added, as you can see from our flights section on this blog. We are currently marketing property in Turkey at prices starting from £25k, why not take a look and see what all the fuss is about.
