Re: visiting very soon

Thanks Angela for the advice, my wife wants Alanya, that's why, I am sure Side would be better located, but again we will see.
So there won't be profit made on short holiday, which will leave us with maintenance fees, that are around 500-700 euros a year...quite a lot just to own an apartment.
I will keep my mind open to endless possibilities, but as it stands, I am starting to be a bit pessimistic.

I pay nothing like 500_700 euros a year .More like 230. Total in Bodrum area.
We can afford to lock it and leave it ,and just look forward to escaping the UK weather more or less when we like .( been doing that now for 14 years ) .lol.

Re: visiting very soon

I would consider 5 to 6 hundred a year reasonable , many pay much more . Our site is 98% Turkish and we pay this .

Re: visiting very soon

It depends entirely on what facilities there are and how many properties are sharing.

Re: visiting very soon

The reason why I consider the maintenance fees high is because that could be a nice one week all inc hotel, without having to worry about your property, let alone make your breakfast & dinner.

Anyone from Alanya who can share his/her own experience in owning a property and how life is in Alanya.

Rent long term to people that are relocating semi permanently to your area - NOT to holiday makers.

But then you can't use it in your own holiday time.

This is right .
Never bought with the view to rent 14 years ago .Far better than a hotel going to your own home from home.We have massive shared pool.

Precisely, after 14 yrs, so you must have made the right choice, it worked and still works for you, good luck and I wish I could say this now. But here I am a bit stuck with the idea that if things don't go accordingly then I have to chip in few hundred of every year. Sometimes you think money in the pocket better than thrown into the dark, then it's better invested then kept with some fat cats.
