Halifax: International property bargains ‘can be found in Turkey’
There are international property bargains to be had in Turkey, according to the National Association of Estate Agents.
Property sales in the nation have taken something of a hit recently due to the recession, meaning that many sellers have lowered prices to tempt buyers, the body stated in its 2010 predictions for the global property market.
“In Turkey, bargains are to be had as developers try to encourage sales with significant discounts, particularly for cash buyers, and this trend will continue through 2010 in an attempt to mop up excess stock,” commented Richard Edgar, the association’s spokesperson for Turkey and the Caribbean.
“There is a glut of unsold properties providing some genuine and excellent bargains… with some offers of up to 40 per cent discount for cash buyers.”
Last month, it was reported that easyJet is launching a new flight from London Gatwick to Antayla in Turkey, which could help make the nation more attractive to people looking to purchase international property in the city.
