I'm a bit confused by this thread and the posted comments.This is a question about cost of living in Turkey not the amount of interest you will get.The cost of living/inflation figures are given out each month by the central bank when they set interest rates.The figures have been remarkably steady for some while and before that were much higher.Back to the interest question...its not a lot of good getting higher interest rates if your bills and shopping are shooting up at a similar rate,so there is at least a small silver lining on the horizon,just think what it would be like if prices were going through the roof and interest rates were low!!!
We have a house with a pool. Water and electric are around 150tl a month for both. Food is biggest outlay and whilst that is different for everyone depending on size of family etc, its around 700tl a month for us 2
Hope that helps
