Kolat evleri

Hi, we have just returned from Bodrum where we spent three days looking for properties. We really like Kolat Evleri, I think it also goes by the name of Gardens of Gundogan. Beautiful, well-planned compound with good quality houses and facilities. Does anyone know about this site? Our query is mainly that it was launched two years ago but they have sold only less than half of the properties. We also saw Azure villas but what a let down that site was. Hardly any villa has seaview and rooms are tiny and to go to garden you need to go through one of the bedrooms. We had singled out this site while at home but once visiting it, it was a letdown. We are serious buyers, and advice would be really welcome.

Re: Kolat evleri

Very good builders.
Over the last few years they have built 3 different sites and all of the first two smaller sites sold and are now well established sites with lovely gardens etc.
..............just takes a bit of time in this economic climate to sell.
Especially as this is the biggest project they have done.

Thank you Lynne. This is good to hear. Do you have any info on Heredot site? I know it is a bit older site but we have stayed there as summer tenants and like it too. I heard there was at some point some issues with the paperwork.

We had a house on Heredot which we sold a few years ago, Half had an Iskan and half didnt, that was resolved after we left from what I was told.

Re: Kolat evleri

Hi Mokkapala, I know quite a few owners on Heredot and all their tapus and iskans are now sorted out. Not saying that means all but certainly most of them.
Kolat site is nearer to the village which is always a big plus for renting out.
Cheers
Lynne

Re: Kolat evleri

You certainly did the right thing by going out to see these site,s . It really is asking for trouble buying without going to look . Plus I would beware of buying on a site with a lot of empty properties as it only means who has bought will have to pay the maintenance for the whole site . You can better the builder of the unsold properties wont pay LOL.
I rember seeing a TV article on a luxury site in Spain with beautiful properties . There were only a few Brits living there and the whole place was starting to run down as there was no one to pay the site maintenance .

Re: Kolat evleri

Thank you so much for the replies. Yes we flew out last week to look at properties. We live in Dubai. Plan is for me and our kids to stay in Bodrum two months in the summer. My husband is Turkish. Kolat site for us seemed really great, ticked a lot of boxes. I also would look at schools for summer camps and saw some exist in Yalikavak and Gokcebel. The reason for summer camps is to enhance the kids' Turkish. I visited Ted Koleji too but I would be happier to find even a smaller school more local to Gundogan.

Re: Kolat evleri

Lynne, I have noticed you have connections to property management. Do you offer these services? We would ideally look at renting the house we buy for holiday makers at least for April, May, September etc. Do you think there would be demand in those months?

Re: Kolat evleri

Hi Mokkapala
Turkish visitors want rentals approx June 15 to Sep 15th and will rent for up to 3 months. Also nearer to the centre of the village the more chance of rental.
Outside of those dates you would need to use something like a rental website to attract visitors from other parts of the world.
Flights direct to Bodrum airport from the UK begin roughly 1st April and end Oct 30th. Also the weather from Nov to March is not as good and more chance of rain.

Re: Kolat evleri

Hi
I own a Villa in Herodot since the site was built.
There were some problems with the site
at the beginning . There are no longer any issues with this site and
it is extremely well managed and a lovely site to be an
owner on. While it started with a lot of UK owners this has
changed over the years and there are now many
Turkish owners. It is also quite good for rental particularly
in the summer months. There have been quite a few sold
over the years. Some owners I know who sold
their Villas used Arzu Aegan Coast Properties and were very happy with
the process and service. She will
probably know if any are for sale currently.
Good luck with your search.
