I personally think first and foremost that perspective buyers who are looking to buy in a foreign country don’t understand the affordability of property for sale in Turkey. Is it a secret? Yes, it probably is due to the fact that buyers will see the prices in Turkey and not believe them. There have been many times buyers have asked me what the real price is, basically because they don’t believe the prices they see on web portals are true.
Obviously if you see something for a ridiculously low price, then of course you must question it and I would always recommend you use a trusted agent in your search for a property whether it’s for a holiday home, an investment or a possible future retirement home. Buyers are astounded at the prices as currently for a 2 bedroom apartment on the Aegean coast you will pay from as little as £32,500 it is on a well kept complex with a communal swimming pool, landscaped gardens and 24 hour security. I would say that is exceptional value for money and I forgot to mention it’s just a 10 minute stroll to the beach.
The secret is if a buyer hasn’t visited Turkey before, they may not be aware of the affordable prices especially if compared to property in Europe. You may or may not be surprised to know that so often, a buyer will have visited Turkey for their holidays, loved it and seen the value for money properties for sale. They then return home and begin making enquiries and that’s great, but they need to return quickly to view and buy. Yes I understand they want to gather as much information as possible but how can we say the prices will remain the same until next year when they visit again?
Ok its time to reveal the secret of Turkey but I will warn you now, it’s nothing secretive and for those of us who know Turkey well, you can soon unlock this secret within a few days of visiting. Its not just about the property for sale, it’s about the climate, the scenic views, the fabulous beaches, historical sites, the delicious cuisine, the sights, sounds and aromas of the cities including the beautiful Mosques and the haunting prayer callings and its about the local, warm and friendly people. Turkey lures you in and yes it is full of eastern promise and it’s a Turkish delight and its one to be savoured and cherished.
Turkey is one of those countries that keeps pulling you back like a magnet, there is nowhere like it for many reasons. In some ways buying property there is a bonus it’s not really the secret charm that is Turkey itself. Regular flights help too with all the main destinations and resorts having International Airports close by, usually within a 1 hour transfer from airport to resort. Another plus is you don’t need to fly long haul as Turkey is just a 4 hour flight from the UK and other European countries. It’s a fact some resorts are likened to the Caribbean with picture postcard beaches and many of them are Blue Flag status.
Another bonus is the exchange rate from Great British Pounds (GBP) To Turkish Lira (TL) currently its worth a staggering 8.4 which means when you exchange your GBP you are getting a lot back in TL. It entitles you to enjoy your holiday and splash you’re hard earned cash. If you are retired and want to live in Turkey you are able to draw your pension it is not a problem and you can then exchange your GBP for TL it will afford you a very nice lifestyle.
Currently the banks offer from 10% interest on your savings which means you can bank a lump sum and you are able to withdraw the interest on a monthly basis if you wish. The banks offer different interest rates and you can negotiate a good rate with them it is worth your time and energy visiting the different banks to see what their offer is to you. It is also a good idea to not put all your money in to one bank, spread your money around for the most attractive deals.
When you invest in Turkish property for sale you not only get a beautiful property to live in, you’re getting a superb lifestyle in the sun. This is what we work and strive for and you deserve this piece of heaven.
