Bargain Brits look to Turkey

With so much bargain property, it’s little wonder investors and Brits still have sights firmly set on Turkey.

We all love a bargain, so it’s no surprise that Turkey remains a hugely popular choice with anyone looking to buy property in the sunshine. Some people might have been put off by recent political events in the country, but those who know about buying property abroad will tell you that this is exactly the right time to bag a bargain. Turkey is continuing to attract wealthy investors every day, and it’s easy to find a big, modern property with sensational sea views for well under £100,000. You can download a comprehensive guide to buying property in Turkey here.

Being outside the EU, buy a property in Turkey and you won’t need to worry what happens with the upcoming Brexit negotiations on immigration either. Unfortunately, even though Turkey doesn’t have the euro, the Referendum result has seen your pound get you a few fewer Turkish lira in recent months, so you need to think sensibly about how to transfer currency to make the purchase. You could choose to send your payments with the help of your high street bank, but then you’d be subjected to transfer fees, poor exchange rates, and often long waiting times before money reaches the allotted account.

You can keep even more money in your pocket by enlisting the services of a currency expert who specialises in helping people to buy in Turkey. MoveAgain recommends Smart Currency Exchange for all your currency needs.

They know how important your budget is, and can help you save further through a service called a ‘Forward Contract’. Exchange rates fluctuate by the second, sometimes by a small amount, sometimes significantly, and when that happens the price of your property can shoot up or down in the blink of an eye. These forward contracts allow you to secure an exchange rate that you’re happy to trade at for up to a year, which allows you to budget effectively, as you’ll always know the exact amount of lira you’ll get for your pounds. Just because your Fethiye flat or Bodrum bolthole is already a bargain, don’t neglect to get a proper currency strategy in place – just think of all the fun things you could buy for your new home with the savings you’ll make.
