Turkey's economy shows rapid growth

Calis, Fethiye, Turkey

The Turkish General Directorate of Land Registry has released figures showing 32,000 UK buyers investing in Turkish property. "These figures are remarkable and very exciting for the future of Turkey and those who invest in her", says Suleyman Akbay of Oceanwide Properties, experts in Turkish homes.

The Turkish Government is actively promoting foreign investment by concentrating their energies and money on the infrastructure including roads and airports with a view to future admission into the EU.

Added Suleyman, "There are many advantages to purchasing a property in Turkey, including the fact that there aren't any capital gains taxes to be paid, if the property is owned for over five years. Recently approved new mortgage laws to make it easier to purchase and of course prices of homes are extraordinarily low compared like for like with many other European countries. All of which is creating a boom time in the property market. Buyers looking for somewhere to retire, holiday home, or investment should seriously consider Turkey as a safe investment country and with a promise of an even greater future".

British retailer Tesco will continue its investments in the Turkish retail sector and German fast food chain Hoons has announced its entry to Turkey with a three-year investment plan, involving 50 restaurants and 1,000 new jobs.

Concluded Suleyman, "Turkey is now becoming a highly desirable place in which to invest. With average price increases between 12 % and 30% depending on the region, this is a good place in which to take a foothold."
