Altintas the New Antalya Property Market District

Over 12 months, Altintas in Antalya has risen to fame in real estate markets, and the future looks even more promising. Despite being the new kid on the bloke, Altintas easily captures the attention of Turkish and foreign house buyers in Antalya. To prove the growing popularity, real estate values have risen a staggering 248% over just 12 months. Antalya is already popular with foreign property buyers. Thousands of people of various nationalities buy holiday homes and invest in real estate annually. Some also buy houses to retire and live in Antalya year-round, hence the famous reputation. We can understand the lure. Antalya has many attributes, including pristine beaches, an encompassing shopping and nightlife scene and gorgeous Mediterranean weather. But let's examine why Altintas is becoming the new favoured district for property purchases and what anyone looking at the area can expect.

                                                     About Altintas in Antalya

1: About Altintas in Antalya

Altintas neighbourhood sits in the Aksu district of Antalya, and the name translates into golden stone, which is apt for many real estate investors. With roughly 7000 people living there and covering 9.3 square kilometres, the average ages of the population are between 35 to 40, proving Altintas popular with working professionals and families. Altintas was only officially formed in 2008 and is bordered by the other Antalya districts of Muratpasa, Kepez, Dosemealti, Serik, and Burdur.

Sitting on the main Antalya – Alanya Road, Altintas is slightly inland, which for house buyers is ideal since this reflects lower prices per square meter when compared to other hot property districts like Lara Beach and Konyaalti. The additional advantage is Antalya airport, which opens for flights year-round, is just 5 kilometre or ten-minute drive away. Should you hamper after seaside strolls, the famous Lara beach district is just 5 kilometre and ten-minute drive in the opposite direction. Altintas belongs to the Aksu region that excels in two main areas of industry; agriculture and tourism, both of which make the area attractive to investors.


2: About Tourism in Aksu

Altogether 33 hotels with bed capacities of 35,000 provide bases for tourism, but this figure is expected to rise, given the now-established high profile of Altintas. In addition, some developments where apartments are for sale have taken the hotel concept, where investors can receive rental incomes by only using their apartments for specific periods each year. Regarding attractions, Altintas sits close to two of Aksu's major tourist spots.

Perge Ancient Ruins: This ancient 12th-century BC city was prominent during Byzantine, Roman and Hellenistic times, and Alexander the Great also stayed. In addition, Perge was a centre for Christianity where Saint Paul preached during Byzantine rule. Hence Perge commands respect from religious pilgrims, historians and tourists. Excavated landmarks include the 12,000-seater theatre, the 27,000-seater stadium, city walls, fountains, agora, acropolis, necropolis, and basilica.

Kursunlu Waterfall: One of Aksu's prettiest places of natural beauty, the 18-meter-high Kursunlu waterfall connects to seven small ponds within a 2-kilometre canyon. This nationally protected park makes a great day out with picnic areas and varieties of flora and fauna. Other family-friendly areas include walking paths, playgrounds, and restaurants.

3: About Agriculture in Aksu

Agriculture is another strong industry in the Aksu region that produces vegetables and citrus fruits. Fifteen firms specialise in seeds and saplings sent all over Turkey. Such is the ideal weather climate; the Aksu region also excels in producing ornamental and botanical plants.

4: Real Estate Trends in Altintas

So, why has Altintas suddenly taken off as the hottest place to buy property in Antalya? Well, for several reasons. Konyaalti and Lara beachside districts have been the most desirable for years. Sitting east of Antalya's old city, the Blue Flag Lara Beach earns fame for the long stretch of sand and large, all-inclusive themed hotels. While Lara Beach sits in the east, Konyaalti, further west, has attracted more attention over the last five years, thanks to numerous local projects to upgrade and sustain the infrastructure that boosted tourism and housing markets. The problem was that high demand and low supply massively drove prices up, and both Lara and Konyaalti beach districts became out of the budget for mainstream property buyers.

The land of available land for building also drove developers in Antalya to look for other regions, and Altintas was perfect. Masses of available land and the inland location kept prices per square meter low. Seeing different opportunities to rejuvenate and add another dimension to the Aksu housing market, developers employed the best architects to design large lifestyle complexes. Many complexes in Altintas have landscaped gardens, swimming pools, playgrounds and family-friendly areas to relax. Twin the housing development with Altintas’s close location to everything and anything, along with tourism, and it is easy to understand why property buyers are falling in love with Altintas.
