Where to buy property for sale in Turkey?

 Turkey not only attracts millions of holidaymakers every year, but it has become a popular spot for international tourists that became property buyers as well. There is a mix of Homebuyers looking for retirement homes (or at least long winters) or people who decide to live permanently in Turkey. It’s cheaper to live there than some of our other favorite holiday countries in Europe, and some people think Turks are friendlier compared to other countries too. Turkey has a series of cities and distinctive seaside resorts along its 700-kilometer Aegean/Mediterranean coastline from Çesme in the north to Alanya. These are by far the most popular places to buy Real Estate in Turkey.

There are also cities that combine beach life with classical history, such as Çeşme and Bodrum, which have sites of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The beaches and waters of the Aegean Coast have notable admirers including David Beckham, Bill Gates and many others. However, Turkey is not just about the beaches. It has ski resorts not far from Bursa and adventure people can do activities like rafting, hiking and paragliding. Until the 1920s, much of the Aegean coast was inhabited jointly by Greeks and Turks, and the mix of styles can be very appealing, especially in old fishing villages like Çesme. Property seekers have also ventured into other coastal areas, for example green towns like Urla.

Although the Aegean coast does have the most popular and easiest places to buy property in Turkey in relation to our English-speaking agents, lawyers and professionals, there are alternatives. The Black Sea coast is rainier and has more mountains, and the old port city of Trabzon has attracted some adventurous property buyers as well.

There is a vast number of foreigners who are purchasing properties for sale in Istanbul. Although Istanbul is a popular metropolis, many find it an overwhelming city to live in. The dense city with the highest population of Turkish cities makes it a bit difficult to live in. Traffic jams, air pollution, and criminality rates caused a big influx of people to move to İzmir. Recently Izmir has become an investment hotspot among local property buyers as ass well as foreign property buyers. İzmir has the same facilities as Istanbul but it is just more comfortable to live in. The population is less than a third of Istanbul and it has nearby coastal resorts like Urla, Çeşme. Overall, there is much more nature, less pollution, and the culture in Izmir is a bit more modern. Furthermore, the cost of living is lower in comparison with Istanbul. Another reason why Real Estate in Izmir and Apartments for sale in Izmir are popular is because the city is a perfect combination between the east and west.

Which Nationalities are Buying Property for sale in Turkey?

There are different nationalities of property buyers in Turkey. The largest group of property buyers in Istanbul are native-born Iranians, Iraqis and Arabs. In Alanya one can find an overwhelming number of Russian real estate buyers. With over 10,000 Brits making their home in Fethiye, they are tempted by the large communities of Brits where they can easily socialize.

Which Nationalities are buying property for sale in Izmir?

The city of İzmir has a rich history with a very mixed population from different regions. People from Greece, Bulgaria, Russia, Europe and many other countries are calling İzmir their home for decades. This makes Izmir a very diverse and vibrant city. Izmir has the youngest population of Turkey because of some big universities and the modern mindset of the culture in İzmir.

Since Izmir is suitable to live in all year around it is not really popular among mass tourism similar like Alanya. The Coastal town Çeşme is considered the “Saint Tropez” of Turkey and the high society of Istanbul and Izmir is hanging around here. Overall, we can say that the number of foreigners in İzmir and Çeşme is quite low in comparison with other well-known destinations. This makes the area still very authentic and unique.
