Why Buy Property in Kemer, Antalya
There are many reasons for house-hunters in Turkey to buy property in Kemer, Antalya. This small upmarket resort town sits on Turkey's Mediterranean coast. Fronted by the Mediterranean Sea and backed by the Taurus Mountains, Kemer does not receive as much attention in the Turkish property market as the neighbouring Antalya city centre.
Yet, those who want a small, coastal resort for their property purchase, rather than bustling urban landscapes, should look at it. As well as earning top marks for tourism, expat communities of various nationalities have purchased villas and settled there, proving high worth. So, let us look at why put Kemer on your list of potential destinations when buying property in Antalya.
Why Buy Property in Kemer, Antalya
1: International Air Travel from Many Countries
Every house buyer in Turkey wants good flight schedules to get to their property as often as possible. In the case of Kemer, nearby Antalya International Airport steps up to the podium as one of three touristic air travel hubs serving the Mediterranean and Aegean Turkey. Operating full summer schedules from and to hundreds of destinations, the airport operates during winter and connects to Istanbul's new airport. Antalya airport sits just 50 minutes away from Kemer resort, having won numerous awards.
2: Local Amenities
Another thing that Kemer does exceptionally well is local amenities, including bars, shops, restaurants, and transport links. Our clients have one remark in common: Kemer's impeccably cleanliness, from the streets to upmarket cafes to the town fountain and landmarks. But, of course, being touristic, restaurants come into the limelight, and residents and holidaymakers have many international menus to choose from, alongside traditional Turkish venues.
3: Distance to Antalya City Centre
Of course, if you want even more choice, Antalya city centre is just within hours' drive away. You will find extensive shopping malls like Antalya Migros alongside your quaint boutiques and artisan workshops in Kaleici's old town district. Antalya city centre also pushes boundaries in upmarket restaurants and clubs. We love spending days wandering around Antalya city centre because of various attractions and places to chill out, including Konyaalti residential area.
4: Beaches and Tourist Attractions
Oh my! If you love long stretches of beaches, then be wowed in Kemer. There are many to choose from, and one of our favourites is Goynuk. Most beaches that receive tourists also host water sports to keep kids entertained. You also have numerous tourist attractions to get away from sandy beaches, including the famous Mount Tahtali cable car ride and the nearby Aspendos ruins. We love to head out on daily boat trips or jump onboard a jeep safari during summer.
5: Property in Kemer
Property in Kemer offers beautiful surroundings and privacy, with views of the towering Taurus Mountains, attracting many visitors every year. Some buy property either as holiday homes, investment properties, or permanent homes to live in Kemer all year round. Apartments for sale in Kemer sit within modern complexes with excellent communal facilities of swimming pools, children's playgrounds, landscaped gardens and 24-hour security. Villas for sale in Kemer are either older style bargain properties in need of renovation or new luxury villas on private plots or set in small private complexes. Unfortunately, properties don't offer sea views because of surrounding landscapes, but some include stunning nature and mountain views. Expect a healthy property portfolio to choose from.
6: Rental Opportunity
Investors will be pleased to know apartments and villas in Kemer offer excellent rental yields bringing as much as 7% to 9% per annum. As Kemer slowly becomes popular year-round, prices will rise on average 10% annual. Of course, if you let out your villa in Kemer, you need to adhere to laws, pay rental income and market the home. But buy-to-let investors will be pleased with what Kemer offers for rental potential.
7: Long Term Property Investment
Anyone looking to flip houses or make quick money in the Turkish property market will be disappointed. But if you want an ideal mid to long term investment, villas for sale in Kemer fit the bill. Take one look at Kemer's property market, then compare prices to places like Spain, Portugal, or France, and you will see many benefits in prices per square meter. Additionally, Turkey has a lower cost of living and property maintenance fees.
One stigma some holiday resorts in Turkey have is attracting only one nationality. For example, Aegean Altinkum mainly lures in British holidaymakers and expats looking at property for sale in Turkey. On the other hand, Kemer attracts many European tourists and expats who vary from nationality to nationality. This all blends into a mini-United Nations, with much cultural influence alongside traditional Turkish heritage.
9: Climate ad Weather
Turkey has several different climate zones. For hot summers and mild winters, Kemer delivers in abundance. This also makes it perfect should you want to move to Kemer in later life. In August, summer temperatures peak, and property buyers spend January sitting on terraces in just a T-shirt. The weather makes it worth looking at villas for sale in Kemer – Antalya.
