In a recent meeting with Tolga Ertukel, the director of Turkey Homes real estate company based in London, UK, he gave Fethiye Times his expert opinion on the Fethiye real estate market for 2018…and all looks to be very promising indeed.

Tolga told us – ‘‘Fethiye has had a vibrant real estate market for many years, especially amongst British nationals and Turkish people who also enjoy the Fethiye region for annual summer holidays. Many have bought second homes here. Despite all the ups & downs of the market, we, as a company, have expanded our business, moved in to our new office just off the Kordon below the Cafe Park Teras and increased our property consultants for the Fethiye area. The strong GBP conversion against the Turkish Lira has given the Turkey Homes website an increasing number of hits, and we are receiving more and more interest from British buyers as this current conversion rate gives much better deals on property than in previous years, which is also excellent news for locals.’’

During our meeting with Tolga, he talked about the main reasons British buyers choose Fethiye when seeking to purchase holiday homes, permanent homes, and buy-to-let investment properties.


Fethiye Town, including the residential areas, Taşyaka, Patlangıç, Karagözler etc, are all great areas for consideration. They are all close to the centre of town and have excellent access to the whole of the Fethiye area and beaches. There are a plethora of everyday amenities within walking distance which are active throughout the year.

Property prices are slightly higher in Karagözler due to its close proximity to the marina and stunning sea views.

Taşyaka, with its great value-for-money range of properties,  is an all time favourite for the local Fethiye community. The addition of quality newly built apartment complexes  offering a small range of on-site facilities, attract many British and European buyers too.

Çalış Beach

The holiday resort of Çalış Beach is another popular area. Close to the centre of Fethiye but with a host of local amenities, making the area perfect for year-round living as well as holidays with its wonderful stretch of beach.

A huge investment has been made into the new promenade from Çalış to Fethiye centre and harbour. As a result, we are seeing further development and expansion with high quality modern/contemporary villas and apartments that feature sophisticated smart home technology and easy access to the main road. This is adding value to our business in marketing Çalış to a much wider audience.

The peaceful village of Ovacık is ideal for investors looking for high summer rental yields. It is also a popular location for ex-pats who live there all year-round. The village has a selection of shops, restaurants and bars providing limited winter amenities.

Property in Ovacık has become much more luxurious over recent years with developers feeding a demand for quality homes, yet prices are still very competitive compared to others areas around Turkey’s southern coastline.

Tolga further adds

Our Fethiye office works closely with three of the top construction companies in Fethiye and regularly market their projects to a worldwide audience. This ensures our clients have alternative options before they make their final decision. Our advice to clients of Turkey Homes is to make sure they do plenty of research when buying property in Fethiye. The area sees many new developers promising low prices and quality builds that match top construction companies, however, some of these unknown developers will cut corners. We take great care and diligence in introducing our clients to reputable constructions companies with an excellent record in the business’’
