Bodrum property is an investor’s and holiday home investor’s dream. The most important thing to state perhaps is that Bodrum has its own international airport, which means that you can fly into a 20 minute radius of your holiday home in Bodrum. Quietly and unashamedly Bodrum airport has built up an impressive coverage, with especially heavy coverage from UK airports and many other European destinations. The airport is of course a benefit to owners of holiday homes in Bodrum, because they don’t have far to travel before they can start relaxing. But what is a benefit to holiday home owners, is also a benefit to investors, because being close to an airport massively widens your rental pool. People who have to travel miles to the airport they fly out from will only consider holiday accommodation within a few minutes of the airport they arrive at, and that is only one way that it extends the rental pool. Of course the wider the rental pool, the higher the occupancy, and the higher the occupancy the higher the rental yield.
The weather in Bodrum is most certainly another draw, as Turkey is lucky enough to enjoy 300 days of sunshine per year. The length of the summer season is definitely a factor in the appeal of property in Bodrum to holiday home buyers, holiday home investors and pure investors. The longer the season the more weeks you can rent out the property for or the longer you can holiday in it yourself. Many holiday home investors like to wait till low season to have their own use of the property, and finding a place that is warm in low season is a must for them. But the biggest draw of Bodrum property to most buyers is the low prices, and therefore the massive value for money on offer. Property in Bodrum is not the cheapest in Turkey, but this is expected because of the airport and its naturally beautiful coastal surroundings.
