Are overseas property investments the best bet?

August 10, 2011Article by Ray Withers

According to research more Brits would rather invest in properties abroad now rather than in the UK.   It has been found that interest in buying property overseas is now preferred to that of property in the UK, with 67 per cent of respondents saying it is a good time to make a foreign investment and 65 per cent actually considering doing so.  Property in USA generated the most responses, followed by property in Turkey and then property in Portugal. Here at Property Frontiers, having extensively researched the Turkish real estate market, we have established exclusive relationships with reputable developers and secured a number of diverse and exceptional investment properties in Turkey.

The economic capital of Istanbul is offering particularly good property investment opportunities, on the back of soaring tourism levels. Research has shown that tourist volumes in Istanbul having increased by 30per cent so far in 2011 compared to the same period last year.

Istanbul is still seen by many as the cultural heart of Turkey even if it’s not the capital; it is where the majority of business takes place with the largest sea port in Turkey being in Istanbul.

Istanbul Property has great investment potential with its growing population and economic growth leading to high price rises in recent years.  Ray Withers, Director of Property Frontiers says. “Istanbul in particular is a great opportunity for investments, especially with Turkeys Q1 GDP results this year showing it’s the fastest growing economy in the world.  Property as an investment is a very shrewd choice.” The UK now has some strong competition.
