Oceanwide Properties are focusing on retirement in Turkey throughout February. With the days that retirees headed to Spain, France and Portugal now dwindling, and the number of elderly ex-pat residents in Turkey on the increase, it appears the favored new trend is to spend your golden years here on Turkey’s sunny shores.
“Over the past few years, many of our clients have been British retirees looking to make their pensions stretch further” says Suleyman Akbay, MD at Oceanwide Properties. “Spain, France and Portugal used to attract the majority looking to retire abroad, but we are now seeing far more Brits and Europeans looking towards Turkey for retirement. I would say main lures are the lower costs of living, warmer climate, heathcare and amount of reasonably priced Turkish property for sale“.
There are many reasons to consider Turkey for retirement. Here are our top five;
1. Affordable Turkish properties
Oceanwide Properties have fully furnished apartments for sale in Fethiye for as little as £43,000, our cheapest villa in Ovacik at present is just £45,995. This is a far cry from the price tags on properties in the eurozone like Spain and France. It is a far more manageable outlay for many looking for a laid back life abroad.
