Turkish property 'very good value'
30 June 2009 07:43
Property in Turkey could offer Brits great value for money, leaving plenty of spare cash over for the travel insurance cover to jet off regularly to their new holiday home.
Elisabeth Dobson, head of private clients at World First, said that property buyers find the country very good value as its legal tender is not the euro.
She went on to comment that people could "live very comfortably" with no other income apart from the state pension.
Figures from Conti show that mortgage applications for properties in Turkey have gone up by 65 per cent in the first five months of the year when compared to the last five months of 2008.
Online travel company youtravel.com recently reported that it has seen "double-digit growth" for bookings to Turkey.
In total, bookings to Bodrum are up by 11 per cent, with the number of people choosing to head to Dalaman for a break up by 21 per cent.
