Reasons To Buy Property In Turkey

August 11, 2011Article by Ray Withers

What do we all look for when buying a property abroad?

We all deep down dream of owning a property abroad (if we’re honest with ourselves), lying out in the sunshine all afternoon, eating Turkish delight until the sun goes down. If we all had the opportunity to snatch up a property in Turkey with guaranteed returns on investments would we really want to turn it down?

What does Turkey have to offer us?

With over 300 days of sunshine a year, the warm climate which ranging from March to November is a great reason to invest in buying a property in Turkey. Stunning scenery and beautiful beaches in my opinion Turkey has something to offer everyone.

Eating out in Turkey is never a chore. How much did you pay for your meal for the two last week? Cut that bill in half, and then in half again Turkey. The overall cost of living is tiny compared to the UK.

Turkey is a modern country with a young population. This is a country that is taking its place at the forefront of modern economics (one of the fastest growing economies) and society, and it intends to stay there too.

Here’s an interesting fact –

Modern properties in Turkey now all conform to EU standards and regulations. Turkey is in the process of applying to join the European Union and is expected to complete the process in the next few years.
The majority of people visiting will prefer to rent an apartment in the city for a few weeks at a time as opposed to staying in hotels; this means that there is more money to be made by anyone who owns a modern Istanbul property.

Finally Istanbul has an excellent transport system which makes it very attractive to people who have relocated to Turkey for work. The city also has about two international airports making it easy for the frequent visitor. There are many exciting reasons to invest in a property in Turkey.
