Going for it!!

  • Well after many years of dithering, we have finally decided to bite the bullet and buy a small bolt hole in Kalkan, looking for 2 bed apartment £60,000 tops. Must say looking through the real estate listings I am started to get very excited! We will be visiting Kalkan for our usual 2 week summer break next month so hopefully we will have lots of viewings lined up by then............ Just wondering, when buying in Kalkan is it customary, as in the UK, to put in an offer? Anyone got any guidance? Must say the idea of this being the last time we stay in someone else's villa and visiting our favourite destination a few times a year is very appealing!

  • Well done! You won't regret it. We bit the bullet at the end of last summer and have already enjoyed 3 trips in our very own bolt hole! We put in a cheeky offer on ours which wasn't accepted but ended up agreeing around 5% below the asking price. I'm always on the lookout still and there are a few bargains out there! Good luck.

  • It's a buyers market at the moment, so just go for it.  You can always increase your offer! We bought 11 years ago and have never once regretted it.  Never tire of going to our second home.  Good luck, I'm sure you will love it just as much as we love ours.

  • Wow SturdySteve - go for it! We have been surprised at how smoothly it has gone, our estate agent and solicitor were fantastic and really guided us through the process, not too scary at all, looking forward to visiting our new place several times next year!!

    • Sezkalkan: Holly - you may be better off starting off a post under 'general discussion' on the right hand side, but generally the weather is great in October - mid 20's with plenty of sunshine. Maybe the odd bit of rain, but doesn't normally last too long.  A little cooler in the evenings, so pack a pashmina.  It seems very safe. All of us Kalkan nutters hvae been coming all year and more than once too!  Go for it
