Bodrum the Pearl of the Aegean Coast
Turkey Homes: Promoting the Exquisite Bodrum
Turkey Homes are stepping up their game by placing the spotlight on the exquisite Bodrum peninsula of Turkey. Their headquarters, based in the bustling metropolis of London, are using various social media websites and British newspapers to highlight the delights of Bodrum and prove why it is an exclusive and stunning destination for investors and lifestyle seekers.
The owner, Tolga Ertukel, who has worked in the Turkish property industry for fifteen years is keen to point out to potential investors the overwhelming advantages of the Bodrum property market. He says the excellent value per square metre of property and potential capital growth for luxury penthouses, apartments and villas is advantageous over other areas in the country where there is little potential for development and change.
He is also keen to inform potential buyers building a buy-to-let investment portfolio that Bodrum is ahead of the game having firmly established itself in the tourism market. Especially the exquisite new Palmarina now is fully operational in Bodrum’s new pearl Yalikavak, this is the new district that is competing against the likes of St. Tropez of South of France when it comes to luxury yacht and boat owners. Yalikavak the new St Tropez offers the worldwide visitors what Bodrum is all about: the new brand, luxury shopping, stunning Riviera lifestyle and more.
A Pinnacle Hub of the Turkish Riviera
Attracting buyers with an interest in sailing has been easy for Turkey Homes, although the Turkish Riviera has other destinations to offer but, still, nothing beats the yachting scene in Bodrum focused on upmarket clientele of Europe and Aegean coast lovers.
Sailing clientele are specifically interested in the properties in Bodrum where prices start from an average of $100,000 for a two-bedroom apartment with a magnificent view over the Aegean waters and head to the other scale of the market, as seen in the $750,000 4-bedroom luxury villas close to the water’s edge.
Promoting Bodrum to the International Market
The diversity of neighbourhoods within the Bodrum Peninsula is the main theme of Turkey Homes' promotion. Breaking their portfolio down into Yalikavak, Turkbuku, Gundogan, Torba, Gumusluk they point out that luxury shopping, up-market eateries and exquisite nightlife choices of each district reflect the Riviera lifestyle that many overseas property investors are desperately searching for.
Tolga, who spends his time between Turkey and the UK, is proud to say that he has never had a buyer who disliked the Bodrum peninsula. “Everyone falls in love with Bodrum, especially the Europeans and Scandinavians and the only reason they love it is not just because of the sun, sea and climate it’s the lifestyle and Bodrum way of living.
Our British and European clients tend to gravitate towards the Yalikavak and Gumusluk districts, although some love the vibrancy of the Bodrum Town centre. They always quote the airport, frequency of flights, beaches and restaurant facilities as benefits, but say, the main reason for choosing the peninsula is that it provides everything they always imagined a life in the sun would be like.”
What Does future hold for the Turkish Property Market?
Although recent news articles are suggesting a dismal year is in store for Turkey regarding tourism, Tolga Ertukel is confident that the Turkish property market will not be affected.
“Most people considering buying property in Turkey already have knowledge and experience of what it is like because they have visited the country numerous times. Whereas the tourism industry is affected by people hesitant to come for the first time, property buyers are like repeat holidaymakers who have already done their research and know that the doom and gloom attitude so often featured in mainstream newspapers is a far cry from reality.
Bodrum peninsula now matches the likes of South of France and Italy as the new upmarket destination accommodating all walks of life and we are confident that Bodrum will continue to be the ideal destination not only for the foreign buyers but also ever so popular with professional Turks.”
