Districts of Antalya Dominating the Property Market
Collectively, the districts of Antalya form Turkey’s second most popular destination for foreign tourism and house sales. The region is going from strength to strength as each month shows its appeal to overseas house buyers and holidaymakers is at an all-time high.
So far, from January to March, various nationalities purchased a staggering 1899 properties including apartments, villas, and commercial premises. These sales occurred all over the region. Antalya’s central hub is the city centre, but surrounding coastal resorts like Belek, Kemer, Side, Alanya, Cirali, and Kalkan also fall within the boundary lines.
Reasons for its roaring success are clear. 600-kilometre coastline with sandy beaches, stunning views and Mediterranean climate garner attention. However, tourism excellence and a laid-back lifestyle found nowhere else in the country boosts its esteemed reputation worldwide.
As Turkey’s top touristic hub, Antalya excels at hospitality and professionalism, whether it is mainstream holiday packages, luxury all-inclusive hotels or five-star Turkish Riviera sailing. Last, diversity shines through in shopping, nightlife and dining out scenes that outrival significant cities in Turkey and other countries.
Attracting both budget and luxury house buyers, Antalya’s cosmopolitan ambience is the perfect base. However, which districts drive the property market, and proving to be more popular than others?
5 Districts of Antalya For House Buyers to Consider
1. Alanya: The Growing Star
Real estate investors have their eye on Alanya, at Antalya’s eastern tip. A growing tourism industry attracts nationalities from many countries, and this popularity carries through to the real estate market. Neighbourhoods like Mahmutlar and Avsallar lead the way with affordable prices per square meter, offering much capital appreciation potential for owners willing to hold on to their property long term.
2. Belek: Where Golfing Homes Region Supreme
As Turkey’s golfing capital, Belek’s reputation stems around the sport, yet the town is about much more than that. Known for its five stars plus spa and wellness hotels, the beachfront also commands much respect from locals and holidaymakers.
Once hosting the G20 summit, Belek has a quiet residential feel, despite its popularity, hence it is perfect for people looking to live there all year round. If you want to buy property in Belek, it is worth looking at the centre but also Kadriye neighbourhood that offers much future potential in terms of house values.
3. Kemer: A District with Potential
Impeccably clean and well laid out Kemer is another district with residential vibes. During summer, it’s a party hub, and while this dies down in winter, it’s close and easy access to the main Antalya city centre, and surrounding tourist attractions makes it an all-rounder particularly attracting European investors. As well as the centre, neighbourhoods to consider include Camyuva, Arslanbucak, and Goynuk.
4. Kalkan: Antalya’s Luxury District
Speak to any Turkish Riviera expert, and they will have nothing but glowing praise for Kalkan, sitting in the heart of Turkey’s southern coastline. The name, synonymous with luxury lifestyles, also lends weight to modern, architectural designed villas showing perfect views of the Mediterranean Sea alongside an exclusive lifestyle. Kalkan breaks down into six separate neighbourhoods, all of which offer something unique from Kiziltas’s amazing views to millionaire mansions in Komurluk.
5. Antalya City Centre: The Main Hub
The city centre attracts many buyers who want the all-encompassing transport, shopping, and nightlife scenes but three areas stand out. Buyers with a higher budget often look at Konyaalti, and Lara Beach, so they can tap into Turkey’s seaside lifestyle. Standing among the top ten beaches in Turkey, their beauty is hard to deny. Meanwhile, lower budget house hunters often opt for the Kepez district. Keeping a central location, it is the most desirable residential area to live in.
