Due to the free fall of the Turkish lira, this is the perfect time for prospective buyers to buy property at a favorable price in Turkey!

From 1995 many Dutch and Belgians bought real estate in Mahmutlar. What at the time was mainly known as a farming village near the most visited resort Alanya located on the Turkish Riviera, has now become a fully-fledged city in 2019.

The popularity among Dutch and Belgian investors at the time was among other things, the Gazipa┼ča airport that was undergoing construction. Located only 26 kilometers away, it has been operational for years and many price fighters are negotiating to operate more and more flights.

If you head to the local market, you can purchase almost all vegetables and fruit for an entire week with a mere ten euros. There are a few things you must try such as, the homemade butter, the farm-fresh eggs or the pure olive oil. With the current exchange rate of the Turkish Lira, the cost of living is around 30 percent compared to what you would spend in the Benelux.

In other words:
Life in Turkey is a 70 percent cheaper, so ideal for retired people.

More and more often we see older people coming to Turkey to hibernate. Alanya and Mahmutlar are ideal because most roads are very flat, perfect if you have difficulty walking. The infrastructure in Mahmutlar has been greatly improved in the last 10 years.

Exercising in the open air is fully possible, also directly on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. Staying at home is often more expensive. With the tourist visa you can stay in Turkey for a maximum of 90 days within a period of 180 days. If you want to stay longer, you can also qualify for a residence permit (Ikamet) with your rental contract or proof of ownership of a home.

There is a diverse range of properties in Mahmutlar. From the beginning of 2000, supervision of construction companies has been tightened. The municipality of Alanya wants to form its own province and does not accept illegal or poor construction. The municipality invests a lot in a clean living environment with many activities for the residents.

Due to the free fall of the Turkish lira, this is the perfect time for prospective buyers to buy property at a favorable price in Turkey. A relatively low price for optimal living enjoyment, low living costs and plenty of sunshine are pre-eminently the ingredients for retired people who want to enjoy life. In addition, do not forget the bustling cities, the delicious cuisine, the unprecedented beauty of nature and the rich culture, and then realize that Turkey is a different country than the many prejudices make us suspect.
