Alanya district of the Antalya attracts foreigner buyers
According to research conducted by the Alanya Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ALTSO), Antalya region ranks first in the total number of foreigners who have bought property with 24.4 percent of the total.
The research also shows that Alanya is the district of Antalya foreigners prefer the most. Antalya has witnessed the sale of 17,850 houses to the foreigners, 12,331 of which are located in Alanya. However, the district is not so popular for land sales; the number of land sales to foreigners is 20,903, only 501 of which were in Alanya. This comprises only 2.4 percent of the total number of land sales.
“The results of the research by ALTSO show that Alanya is the most favourite place for foreigners to purchase houses in Turkey, while the district is not as much preferred for the purchase of land,” said Kerim Taç, chairman of the Alanya Chamber of Commerce and Industry, who noted that there is no need to worry about property sales to foreigners. “Foreign people preferring Antalya and Alanya to invest in will contribute to the further development of the district. We hope that the new regulations will facilitate us to make good use of this opportunity,” added Taç.
