Turkey’s Affordable Mediterranean Coast Retirement Spots

The Turkish Riviera is attracting expat retirees from throughout the world.

Sharing trips with friends and cashing in on rewards can make for a more affordable getaway

Retirees seeking an affordable cost of living and unspoiled, white-sand beaches should consider the Turkish Riviera.

Usually overlooked in favor of more established Mediterranean destinations, Turkey’s coast offers diverse, beautiful and affordable lifestyle options. Many villages and port towns along the “Turkish Riviera,” as this stretch along the Mediterranean is known, are already home to good numbers of expat retirees.

One attraction is the very low cost, both of living and of real estate. Compared with other Mediterranean retirement options, Turkey’s Turquoise Coast is a bargain. You could live here on a budget of $1,500 per month or less, including rent.

For this low cost, you get access to the warm seas, white-sand beaches and 300 days of sunshine every year. The people are friendly and hospitable, and the lifestyle is laid-back and low-key.

Turkey’s Mediterranean coast is relatively unspoiled, although in spots along this 1,000-mile stretch, you can find sleek resorts and modern medical facilities, sometimes just yards from the monumental remains of ancient Greece and Rome. Turkey is a place where the modern and the traditional are dramatically juxtaposed, making life here at once familiar and excitingly exotic. In the North Aegean region, you'll find sleepy villages where life is traditional and quiet, while small fishing ports like Side, Belek, Bodrum and Alanya have been transformed into international resorts with marinas and trendy clubs.

Russians are giving up their properties in Bulgaria for Turkey

Turkey and Greece are on track to replace Bulgaria as a top destination for property purchase of Russian-speaking customers. The previous wave of Russians who have bought Bulgarian real estate has decreased in proportion, say the observations of brokers who work with vacation properties.

"The positions of Bulgaria as a leading market for holiday homes in Russia is gradually moving slowly towards Turkey, Greece and other exotic destinations mainly in Asia such as Dubai, UAE. Currently the Bulgarian market is mainly attracting Russians with rather modest financial means. Their rich fellow citizens prefer to spend their money in Western Europe and mostly buy property in the UK, Germany, France or Spain.

The cause of the decline of the Russian real estate interest in Bulgaria may be sought in the events in Ukraine and the economic embargo imposed by of the EU on Moscow and vice versa. The devaluation of the Russian currency is also detrimental to the Bulgarian property market, say brokers. About two months ago, it became clear that the demand for Bulgarian properties in the most popular Russian search yandeks.ru fell by between 30% and 35%.

Yet there are still many Russians who are buying a second home for permanent residence in Bulgaria. "In the last year and a half sharp increase in the number of Russian-speaking clients who chose Bulgaria for a second home, mainly at the sea and mountain resorts of Bulgaria. They are looking mainly for not too large homes with a budget of around EUR 35,000 - EUR 45,000 on the Black Sea and around EUR 30,000 for the same in Bansko and other mountain resorts.

Real Estate In Turkey A Hot Favorite With Gulf Investors

Real estate in Turkey has been in the limelight for some time now and it is all because of the large amounts of money, which Gulf investors are pumping into the system. A considerable part of the billion dollars sector has come from the Middle East region.

According to the article on Turkish property, there are a large number of foreigners who are investing in Turkish real estate with the numbers increasing steadily. The number of real estate purchases made by overseas investors has increased by more than 40 percent in the last six moths. The real estate sector in the country has attracted investments larger than one billion dollars in the same time.

Significance of Gulf investors

Most of the large investments are coming from property buyers and investors in the Gulf countries. These are also the people who contribute significantly to the tourism revenue of the country. Turkey is a Muslim majority country and is a space that people from the Gulf are comfortable within, as compared to some Western locations. In addition to this, the recent surge in interest in Turkish soap operas has been responsible for the constantly increasing tourist numbers from the Middle East region.

Countries like Russia, Germany and Great Britain have been traditional buyers of beach and coastal properties in Turkey, but the Middle Eastern countries are now scrambling to get a piece of them. According to experts, there are two reasons for this upward trend.

One is that the real estate markets in Dubai have been slow and not performing optimally, making investment a tricky affair. Two is that places like Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar and Oman have been experiencing considerable cultural as well as political friction. Both these factors combine to make Turkish real estate an attractive investment avenue.

Going beyond Istanbul

Foreign investors are starting to look beyond properties in Istanbul and are moving to the suburbs that are developing at a very fast rate. Some of the most popular suburban choices include Antalya, Bodrum and Bursa. Antalya is becoming a rapid favorite for development of super luxury hotels and resorts. This is due to its distance from places that are popular among tourists, creating a quiet, serene and secluded atmosphere, much appreciated by the wealthy.

Foreign investments in Turkish real estate summed up to approximately over three billion dollars last year, a number that is only expected to be following an upward trend this year too. There has also been an increase in air traffic between the two regions due to the interest of the Gulf in Turkish real estate.

Making changes in ownership policies is one of the best decisions that the Turkish government has taken in the last few years, one that is showing great results for the real estate sector of the country.

Turkey third in world with 397 blue flagged beaches

Turkey has been chosen third in the world in 2014 with its 397 blue-flagged beaches, according to the Chamber of Shipping’s (DTO) İzmir Branch.

In 2012, the number of blue-flagged beaches in Turkey was 355, marinas 19 and yachts 13, while in 2013 the number of blue-flagged beaches numbered 383, marinas 21 and yachts 13.

An official from the DTO in İzmir said “it was a success for Turkey to be chosen third” from a total of 70 countries, which saw Spain topping the list with 573 beaches and Greece in second with 407.

The blue flag is a certification awarded by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) to countries that have beaches and marinas that meet its safety and environmental standards.

Due to the positive reputation associated with the blue flags, locals and international tourists tend to be attracted to blue flag beaches.

These flags are renewed every year and during their annual checks the sea water is tested every two weeks, lifeguards and security measures are monitored by the authorities. Environmental protection factors also contribute to the granting of the blue flags.

In Turkey, Antalya province has the highest number of blue-flagged beaches with 197; Muğla is next with 89 blue-flagged beaches, followed by İzmir with 43.
