AUTUMN IN ALANYA

Autumn has started and we enjoy the best time of the year. Day temperatures still rise above 30 degrees. At night it cools down but summer feeling is still there, at least we do not need airconditioning anymore to sleep. So far we are happy with a good season and it looks like this will remain until the beginning of November as long as all charter flights continue. The current exchange rate makes it for tourists now even more attractive.

Alanya s 15th international jazz festival will be held from 27th until 30 th of September at the red tower area in the center. Entrance is free. The detailed program can be found on:  www.alanya.bel.tr  website of the municipality of Alanya that organizes the jazz festival.

NEW LAW AND CHANCE FOR FOREIGNERS OBTAINING TURKISH NATIONALITY

Turkey has reduced required limits for foreigners to acquire Turkish citizenship to encourage investment, according to new regulations published in the country's Official Gazette. The lower limit of fixed capital investments to acquire Turkish citizenship for foreigners is reduced to $500,000 from $2 million. Foreigners who own real estate in Turkey worth a minimum $250,000, instead of $1 million, can avail Turkish citizenship. The deposit requirement of minimum $3 million in Turkish banks is also lowered to $500,000. The regulation also covers foreigners who deposit a minimum of $3 million in Turkish banks. A similar regulation applies to those foreign investors who hold government-issued bonds worth at least $500 thousand which are not diversified for three years. Foreigners who generate jobs for minimum 50 people, -- previous requirement was 100 people -- also will be able to take Turkish citizenship, the gazette said.

The record was in 2014 than 42 million tourists visited Turkey. We hope this dream will come true as it will give a strong impulse for the Turkish economy.

DEAR CUSTOMERS ( June 2017 )
We hereby send you warm and summerly greetings from beautiful Alanya – Everything is nice and quiet – There is peace and the tourists are slowly returning. In the office everything is also as always. Right now we are in the middle of Ramadan – which will continue until 25th of June. When Ramadan ends there will be a big celebration with gifts and sweets for the children. When the celebration is happening many people are having a holiday, and travels from the big cities to amongst other places like Alanya to celebrate, relax and enjoy the holidays. All banks and public offices are closed on 26th and 27th of June. At the office of Panorama we are also closed on Monday 26th of June.

Everything is peaceful and the tourists are returning – The Turkish Lira is very weak, which gives you a big advantage when you are using European currency. That way you can save a lot of money. We are selling houses, but as you all know it is buyers’ market right now. There are great opportunities to make a good investment in a nice villa or apartment.

Regarding news from Alanya we can mention that the submarine that should have started last year have now begun working with the tourist. www.denizaltiturkiye.com The road which will make it easier to go around in the city traffic are still being built.

The beach season is open and both locals and tourists are starting to sunbath. So along with the spring, many of us are making plans for a vacation.

NO WORRY TO COME TO TURKEY AND ALANYA….

1 click on the media and you are flooded with a lot of negative news from Turkey. Yes we do know that the Turkish president is doing quite offensive statements. But Alanya is a tourist resort and you can do all the things you used to do as always and enjoy your holiday home. The sun, the beach, the restaurants and bars. No one will bother you unless you are insisting talking about politics…...

REFERENDUM IN TURKEY

On Sunday April 16th the Turks will have to vote again. This time for a referendum on the presidential system. Around 55 million Turkish people will go to the polls. One can vote yes or no. Until this date you will see the propaganda campaign in all its glory in Turkey and as you know in many European countries where Turks can vote. Whatever the outcome may be, we all hope for peace and stability……and economic progress for the country.

BEST WISHES FOR 2017
We all wish you a healthy and happy 2017.  For Turkey we wish more peace and stability both economically and politically.  For Alanya we wish and hope for a raise in demand both to the real estate sector and tourism sector.

WINTER IN ALANYA
For several weeks Alanya is facing an exceptionally cold winter with lots of rainfall and even lots of snow in the mountains! It was a surprise both to the locals and the foreign homeowners who spent their winter holidays in Alanya. And yes, we manage to celebrate a white Christmas in the mountains near Alanya. Obviously good for nature, with all the rainfall and positive for the coming up hot summer.

CABLE CAR TO ALANYAS CASTLE
Alanya will have a new attraction, and this is currently being built. No this time  no apartments but a cable car to Alanyas castle! The plan is that it should be ready in May 2017. Buses may no longer drive up.  Cable car will leave near the Kleopatra beach at Damlatas. The municipality is working on its cultural heritage and the castle is nominated for UNESCOS World heritage.      

FLIGHTS TO GAZIPASA AIRPORT
There are plenty of charter flights scheduled to Gazipasa airport this summer. So far we  have found: Corendon to Amsterdam, Neckerman to Eindhoven and Amsterdam, Tui fly to Amsterdam, Tuifly to Belgium, Germania to Bremen, Dusseldorf and Hamburg and to Denmark Sunweb to Billund, Copenhagen, Suncharter to Aalborg and Billund and Airnavia to Aalborg and Billund. Sure there will be more to several destinations like Russia. Of course the regular daily flights with Pegasus and Turkish airlines via Istanbul will remain too. 

PLANS TO SELL YOUR PROPERTY
If you plan to sell your property, Panorama can provide a cost-free valuation at all times.  From our extensive network there will always be a demand for real estate.  

EXHANGE RATE TURKISH LIRA
The exchange rate of the Turkish lira in comparison to the Euro, Dollar etc is extremely high meaning at the moment one can enjoy a very cheap holiday in Turkey, as local expenses are very low. It will probably take some time for tourism to recover, meaning that you will be able to benefit from this and to travel and book trips in Turkey even in peak season for very low prices. 
Winter openingtimes of our office in Alanya are from Monday to Saturday from 09.00 to 17.00, please visit us, you are welcome at any time.

DEAR CUSTOMERS
END OF SUMMER 2016

The winterseason has started in Alanya but we still experience mild sunny weather with temperatures during the day above 20 degrees. Tourism sector should accept 2016 as a lost year but now we focus on a better 2017. The Turkish ministry of culture and tourism will work hard to reach its goal of getting 50 million tourists to Turkey with an income of 50 billion dollars by the start of 2023, government is willing to reach their target.     

REAL ESTATE SECTOR

The real estate sector is also suffering under the recession. We must be very creative to find potential buyers, and now we are focusing a lot on the Turkish market. We now carry a large advertising campaign on a leading Turkish website.  There is a demand from the Turkish market for affordable apartments. Especially for the brave and smart there are now good deals to close as it is a buyers market.

CHRISTMAS MARKET IN ALANYA

The 7th international Christmas market will take place in Alanya on December 4t h from 10.00 to 20.00, with many Christmas decorations, Christmas food and a real Santa. If you are around do not miss it.

PRIVATE SERVICE PACKAGE 

For those having a service package with us we have already started to control your properties twice  a month. In this way you can be sure thay your home is in good hands.

HOLIDAYS IN ALANYA

In Turkey, we look back on a turbulent and hectic year. The media was very negative on Turkey and cautionary. The perception here locally was totally different! Alanya and the wider region is quiet and peaceful there is no cause for concern not to come.  Beside that the foreign currency exchange rates are very beneficial for you which means daily expenses are even cheaper now. Also good 4 and 5 star hotels now offering good deals for those who prefer to stay in a hotel. We now hope for economic recovery and stability in politics for Turkey so that everyone can enjoy this beautiful country.

DEAR CUSTOMERS
TURKEY

Life in Turkey continues and meanwhile we have recovered a bit from the shock of the failed coup of last July 15. The coup was organised by a group called FETO (internal group within the the army). In the big cities the population get together in the squares to defend  democracy fortunately it proceeds peacefully. Of course we are very relieved that the coup failed and soon we hope for more peace and stability in Turkey.

ALANYA

In Alanya a few hundred people come together every night to defend democracy at the Ataturk square. The tourists are move freely, there are no restrictions anywhere. The atmosphere is pleasant in Alanya, yes it is quiet everywhere and everyone has time for you. Many hotels run at low capacity and occupancy rate, some hotels are even closed.

STATE OF EMERGENCY

The government has issued a state of emergency for three months. This is a necessary political action and offers for tourists more safety.

REAL ESTATE MARKET

Many foreigners now wish to sell, however it is not an easy time to sell. Despite there are Turkish buyers in the market now who take advantage of good deals. Right now it is precisely a buyers market as many good deals are available.

ANTALYA AIRPORT

If you depart from Antalya airport, take account of additional security checks, so better to leave a little earlier.

EXPO 2016

Expo 2016 is open until 30 October and definitely worth a visit. There are many exhibitions, concerts and cultural events. Check it out at: www.expo2016.org.tr

YOUR SECOND HOME

We hope you will continue to come to Turkey to enjoy your beloved second home in the sun. Now it is the hottest time of the year, slowly slowly it will cool down after August and the most beautiful months of the year are to come.

CLOSING DOWN MAHMUTLAR OFFICE
The results obtained from our office in Mahmutlar of 2015 are not as we expected mainly because of failing Russian demand. On top of that the coming crisis on the Russian market in 2016 made us decide to close the office in Mahmutlar per 01.02.2016. Of course anyone can reach us as usual in our already existing office in Alanya. For those who visited our office in Mahmutlar you are welcome at any time to visit us in Alanya. Thank for your understanding. Looking forward seeing you in 2016.
