While British expats tend to favor Spain’s Costa Blanca and Costa del Sol, there is one destination where Brits should be able to get a good deal in 2022. Turkey is a fantastic choice for expats looking for a agreement on a property.
Christopher told Express.co.uk: “The Turkish Lira has collapsed by half against the British Pound over the past year, but will it tempt buyers?
“Sadly, that doesn’t quite translate to half-price Turkish property, but it does mean your UK pension will go even further.”
Some of the best areas for British expats in Turkey include Kusadasi or Altinkum on the coast.
Fethiye, Antalya and Dalaman have endless options for British expats looking for warm weather and pretty beaches.

Brits who choose to settle in Turkey can expect delicious food and thriving expat communities.
Expats willing to pay £ 120,000 for a villa in Fethiye should be able to buy a property with a swimming pool and landscaped gardens.
The cost of living is much lower in Turkey than in the UK, and expats should expect to pay less for groceries and restaurant meals.
The Turkish diet is a fusion of Mediterranean, Balkan and Middle Eastern cuisine and is very healthy in moderation.
DO NOT MISS
While Turkey may see its popularity rise with UK buyers, Christopher said he expects some old favorites to return.
He told Express.co.uk: “We expect the former Western European favorites to come back strongly in 2022.
“At Property Guides, we see that the British have saved a lot of money over the past two years.
“They are more than happy to spend some of that money on an immigration specialist to fill out visa forms to retire in France, Italy, Portugal or Spain.”
He added: “France has never lost its popularity despite Brexit or Covid. British buyers tend to opt for Brittany or the south of France.
Since Brexit, settling in the EU has become more complicated for British expats, but it is far from impossible.
Hiring specialist help in 2022 will help expats avoid pitfalls and find a visa that’s right for them.
Alternatively, the British could choose to buy a second home in an EU country to use during the winter months.
UK citizens are allowed to spend 90 out of 180 days in the EU and can therefore enjoy several months a year in their holiday home.
Christopher told Express.co.uk: “The United States is expected to return, as long as the flights continue in 2022.
“However, buyers may be put off by 25% higher prices in Florida than last year and a stronger US dollar.”
British expats could face higher prices if they are looking to buy property in the United States in 2022.
