There is no denying that COVID-19 has turned 2020 on its head! If you were to roll the clock back 12 months, I am sure no one would have expected this year to unravel the way that it has. This has meant changes across many different industries, and the housing market is one of these. Below, we are going to take a look at some of the latest property trends in more detail.
More and more students are going for studio apartments
When it comes to student accommodation, there are many different options available. It was long considered the norm to live on campus or to share a property with 10 other people, yet times are changing.
We have noticed that more and more people are enquiring about studio apartments for students. There are a number of reasons why. Firstly, students are being health conscious in light of COVID-19. Not only this, but living alone enables students to be independent and to focus on their studies.
Looking for a paradise overseas? Alanya is thriving
Alanya real estate is an investment well worth considering; it can give you a slice of paradise that you can enjoy year-on-year. Not only will you be able to enjoy the beauty of Alanya, but also this is a popular spot with tourists, and so you are guaranteed to make a tidy profit if purchasing for investment purposes.
Alanya is a beach resort and it attracts a lot of tourists for a number of different reasons, including the historic heritage, natural attractions, and, of course, the beautiful Mediterranean climate. It is actually responsible for nine per cent of the tourism sector in Turkey, and 30 per cent of real estate purchases from foreigners. These statistics alone show that there is a lot of interest in the area, and so buying a property here would certainly be a wise decision. This is especially the case if you can find properties for sale in Alanya by the sea, as the views are breath-taking.
There are actually a lot of annual festivals that take place here because of the seaside position of the city. This includes the Alanya International Culture and Art Festival, the Tourism and Arts Festival, and the Alanya Jazz Days. Alanya is also home to the biggest waterpark in Europe, as well as the largest go-kart track in Turkey. There are many other outdoor tourist activities too, such as banana boating, parasailing, and windsurfing. Therefore, it’s not hard to see why regular tourists from the Netherlands, Russia, Germany, and Scandinavian countries visit Alanya during the warmer months, ensuring your property is always rented out.
Home offices are a top priority
This is another trend that has been sparked up because of COVID-19. With more people working from home than ever before, the need to have a space for a home office has become greater than ever. We have seen a lot of people convert some of their garden space into a home office.
So there you have it: an insight into the worldwide property market at the moment and some of the biggest trends.
