It’s that time of the month again, and the top ten properties for September reveal some interesting trends, and confirm some others.
First of all the dominance of Altinkum continues, despite of the fact that the average price range of the most popular properties continues to increase, now to around £165,000.
Altinkum has 4 properties in the top 10, starting with number 1. ALT371 is a four bedroom 200 square metre furnished resale villa walking distance from the sea for £85,000.
Next we step down to £47,946 for a 2 bedroom new build apartment a little way back from the seas and into the shops and restaurants of Bodrum. This is a great little property, because it has a great balcony, with views out over the roofs of the traditional Turkish style properties to the sea.
The third most popular property is the priciest of the top 10 at £779,000 and this clearly displays the changing buyer profile to those looking to spend more for their second home in Turkey; in previous months the priciest properties have traditionally been at the bottom of the table — all good news for the Turkish property market. This solid price tag buys you an incredible 5 bedroom 480 square metre furnished villa in Kalkan, with private pool and garden. Even better are the views, you can just imagine stopping your swim to admire the gorgeous sea views.
Property number 4 is my personal favourite of this top 10, because it offers incredible value for money. This 3 bedroom Fethiye resale apartment might be a five minute walk to the beach, but it offers exceptional views out over the harbour and its gorgeous yachts and out across the ocean. All for £139,000.
For those who want to be right by the beach without a huge budget you won’t want to miss out on number 5, a 2 bedroom 88 square metre apartment walking distance to the sea in Altinkum for just £40,000.
Number 6 shows why Altinkum is famous for its low property prices and exceptional value for money, for just a little more than the previous property, you get a private pool and gorgeous views out over the city to the sea, which is a fifteen minute walk away. A powerful 3 bedroom resale villa for just £69,000.
Number 7 is another bargain apartment in Altinkum with incredible views out over the ocean from the huge bay windows. For just over £56k you get a 78 square meter 2 bed 2 bathroom apartment with communal pool and gardens just 5 minutes drive from the beach.
Number 8, FET361 is like something out of a fairy tale; gorgeous architecture sets apart this development of 3 145 square meter new build 3 bedroom villas, all with private pools and gardens, and all for just £129,000.
Spacious 81 square meter 2 bedroom apartments in Side are the 9th most popular property on the Spot Blue website this month. A communal pool and gardens as well as the fact that the development is just 10 minutes from the sea all add to the appeal of these apartments.
And the 10th most popular is an absolute dream boat, 200 square meters of luxury Kalkan villa, furnished and complete with 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, private pool, private gardens, a garage and all just 15 minutes from the sea, for the surprisingly low £299,000.
