The Daily Mail has once again testified to the rising popularity of Turkish property with British and global buyers with another sizeable feature on the country in its print and web editions. The title for the piece was a none-downtrodden: Turkey is a shore bet: The holiday home market is thriving on the Turquoise Coast.
The article quoted our very own director Julian Walker as saying:
‘There is a real buzz about Turkey. It’s emerged from recession and powered into 2010 as one of the world’s fastest-growing economies, attracting international investment on an unprecedented scale.’
And later in the article:
‘There is a sense that British buyers are becoming more familiar with Turkey. What’s more, the low-cost airlines easyJet and Jet2 have increased the frequency of flights, while Ryanair has signalled a desire to make Turkey the focus of its next round of expansion.
‘Taking it all into account, that is why Turkey is attracting today’s savvy and risk-averse overseas property buyers.’
The Daily Mail has already covered Turkey several times this year including to call Belek the next Algarve, and to comment on the amazing number of foreign owners of Antalya property. This, along with the positive economic data is all increasing confidence, which fuels popularity and sales, and creates a self-perpetuating cycle of growth for the overseas property market in Turkey.
