Renting seems the way to go and hopefully as we are looking more at the winter months it won’t be too expensiveWe were successful at it although it wasn't our primary plan when we bought the house, we kept our books and declared our taxes on line, there was a link to the Turkish Tax system just for this purpose, We also declared to the Inland revenue here.
We then decided to sell at the point Turkey was bringing in more and more legislation re short term rentals, which would have made it difficult to carry on, we had used a big UK company to advertise and had local assistance for the pool, cleaning and general repairs, I found managing that quite easy although as stated earlier there are some rogues about.
We also did ok on our sale, in fact very well, very much by luck than forward planning though.
If We had sold the same property today We would only get half in £s to what we sold for at the end of 2017 providing of course the TL value of the property hasn't doubled
If I was going back long term I would rent and get involved in nothing other than being lazy and chilling out.
If you wanted to buy, use regularly and take a few renters to cover standing and running costs when you don't need It, it can be done.Yes Would be good to know.
