Main Steps of Buying Property in Turkey
1: Preparing Your Wish List
One of your first steps is to prepare your wish list. In order for us to provide you a better service, you need to answer questions such as for what purpose you will buy the house, which region you prefer, what are the main features of the property, etc.
Istanbul Homes has gathered the most valuable and best properties in Turkey. For this reason, the list should be prepared as thoroughly as possible in order to make the matching that most suits you.
If your wish list is ready, you are ready for the next step, a viewing tour. Our representative will continue to send you some offers till your arrival in order to finalize your wish list.
2: Viewing Tour
Now it is time to plan your trip to Turkey to see how it feels to live here.
Our Sales Agent who speaks your language will pick you up from your hotel, make a short presentation in our office and then your viewing tour will begin. We will listen carefully to all your questions and requests so that we can show you 3 or 4 properties that best suit your wishes and desires.
Also, no need to wait for this process to come to Turkey! Thanks to the TeleProperty service we are offering, you can also arrange a virtual viewing tour.
With TeleProperty, you will have the chance to visit the property and ask questions directly to the owner without leaving your home.
3: Paying a Deposit and Signing the Sales Agreement
After choosing the property you would like to buy, the final price is determined and the payment plan is created clearly.
An average deposit of 5,000 USD / EUR must be paid to commit your purchase of the property and to reserve it.
Working directly with the buyer and the seller, we do not include any intermediaries. We make sure that every detail is reviewed and mutually agreed before the contract is signed.
We make sure you to get your property under the following conditions;
• The exact one is shown to you • From the actual seller • Debt-free • Under mutually agreed conditions
We prepare the official sales contract, which includes all the details, in your preferred language. The down payment should be made within 1 to 4 weeks after signing the agreement. The amount is on average between 30% and 50% of the sales price. The remaining amount is paid at the title deed conveyance stage.
4: Legal Procedures
There are some necessary formal procedures for the purchase to be finalized. You will need a Turkish tax number first. Your passport will be enough to get a tax number. We will support you in the rest of the process.
Another thing you will need is a bank account. We will open this account for you, where you will make all the payments related to the purchase. You can also use this account for your service subscriptions later. All you need to open a bank account is a copy of your passport and an invoice proving your address in your country.
A valuation report will be required in all property sales to foreign buyers in Turkey to confirm the actual value of the property. We work with our state-approved partners for an accurate and safe assessment.
If you do not want to be here in this process, you can give us, your lawyer or legal representative power of attorney.
5: Signing the Title Deed and Moving
We came to the last and most beautiful step. You are ready to get your title deed and move to your fancy home. Again, you don't need to be here to get your title. Just send us a power of attorney.
Coming to this stage means that all final payment is completed and all taxes are paid. Congratulations! Now you have a property in Turkey.
