What applies to VIP housing in Turkey

It must be admitted that the concepts of “VIP” and “eliteness” were brought to Turkey by residents of European countries. Therefore, such a division in the Turkish Republic appeared only in the 21st century, when the borders became more open.

Today, the luxury housing market is actively developing and there are more and more offers. But each agency can have its own concept of eliteness - it is rare. Therefore, we first define what refers to VIP - housing in the general sense.

  1. Foreigners call almost all private houses villas. But villas are already an expensive version of a regular house. On the territory of an elite villa, various entertainment facilities can be located: swimming pools, sports grounds, tennis courts. As well as gardens and private access to the beach.

The status of the villa is strongly influenced by its location. Solitude, proximity to the sea and at the same time developed infrastructure make housing more expensive.

  1. A penthouse is an expensive apartment option. The status adds the location on the top floor and the area of ​​the apartment itself. Often one penthouse in area occupies the entire floor. In addition, such housing may have a special exit to the equipped roof of the building.

The status and cost of a penthouse also depends on the area in which it is located.

  1. Luxury apartments are apartments with a large area and location in an elite complex. As a rule, the infrastructure of luxury apartments is comparable to the hotel service. This may include spas, 24/7 security, etc. Some VIP complexes even include a free restaurant.

The cost of villas, penthouses and apartments largely depends on the complex. The more solid the complex, the higher the price. The fact is that developers are trying to build VIP housing in Turkey in residential complexes, additionally equipping it with infrastructure:

Such real estate naturally becomes much more expensive and solid. Therefore, it belongs to the elite real estate in Turkey.

Advantages of luxury real estate in Alanya

Naturally, the advantages of a luxury apartment or house are much greater than the disadvantages.


  1. Quality. In the construction of luxury real estate, developers use the most expensive equipment and materials. For example, granite flooring, modern technology and furniture - all this can be found in the expensive segment.

Cons of luxury housing in Alanya:

  2. Taxes. The second minus comes from the first. The annual property tax in Turkey is approximately 0.6% of the cadastral value. It turns out that the more expensive the housing, the more money you give. At the same time, one should not forget about a one-time tax when buying an apartment or house - 4% of the cadastral value.
  3. Payment for service. The expensive residential complex has a very developed infrastructure and services. But for this, too, you have to pay annually or monthly. After all, the cost of living in Turkey depends on your needs. The amount for the maintenance of the territory in an elite complex (the so-called aydat) is on average 40 euros.
