Owning Property in Uzumlu: Permanent Living or Summer Retreat
For decades, Turks have lived in the village, and when Turkey made it legally possible for foreigners to own real estate, other nationalities flocked there. Brits are among the most prominent of fans, but it also appeals to Europeans. Some foreign house owners retired there, and now live there all year round, while others use it as a summer retreat. If you have plans to move to there permanently, our extensive expat guide listing all details like how to apply for residency permits, healthcare and adapting to the culture change will help.
Prices of Houses for Sale in Uzumlu
Apartments rarely appear on the Uzumlu real estate market, just because the price per square metre means large villas with private pools are a fraction of the cost, that they sell for in other more prominent areas of Turkey. Uzumlu is also unique because it features bungalows which are a rarity in modern Turkish building styles. Old houses needing renovation start at roughly GBP 50,000 but for another 50 grand, buyers get a modern, three-bedroom villa with private pool and car parking. The high end of the market ends at roughly GBP 300,000 for homes with luxury features like the traditional stonework, a nostalgic trace of Mediterranean Turkey’s history.
