For Investors’ Capital... 

For Advisory Consultants’ Brand Value….
Commission ‘Gold Fever’ is Everywhere…

Inflated Transaction Costs are the Biggest Risk…

Brand Reputation of Advisors is being Destroyed…

With transactions costs of Citizenship by Investment in Turkey ranging as high as 20% or more, the true costs are investor dissatisfaction and accompanying brand reputation damage of advising consultants.

Real Estate CIP CBI Investors Warning: Beware these Signs...

CIP Consultants in Turkey Corrupted by Commissions

Blinded by commission 'gold fever' international citizenship consultancy firms and the local Turkish counterparts they delegate to, are incapable of providing professional investment advice about how to manage various investment risks. These include the Turkish Lira currency risk, duration risk (3 years), liquidity risks, counter-party risks, contract risks, and the whole extensive range of risks related to purchasing a single residential property, or a commercial property. Instead, their incentives are focused on misleading tactics to capture real estate commissions. For example, the latest tricks are to mislead investors with simple lies (click here to read more) that a property is 'safe' to buy once a Conformity Certificate, and Eksper Appraisal Rapor, have been received, or that an 'Approval' has been received,

Turkey: Citizenship Investment Program via Purchase of Real Estate Property: Professional Investment Consulting Services at

Turkish Citizenship can be a viable and cost effective choice but only with professional guidance from investment advisers, that are governed by requirements to provide professional investment advice.  This enables an investor to manage ALL risks and reduce costs, saving thousands, as much as 20% on the investment. Following advice from real estate agents or citizenship consultants that are selling Turkish property will have the opposite result, costing thousands more than is necessary or reasonable, ie, instant capital loss..


Key Points:

  • Turkey has the Lowest Capital Cost, and lowest Tax Rates (zero) for non-resident citizens.
  • Turkey, Malta, and Cyprus have the highest implementation costs (hidden and visible) without careful professional due diligence.
  • Portugal and Greece offer Residency programs (not Citizenship) for similar capital costs. 
  • Bulgaria (EU) has the lowest implementation costs, lowest capital cost (50% finance) , for the shortest application period (12-14 months) , and the lowest residency tax rates (10%) . Apply before end 2020, because the program may be revised. South West Bulgaria is two hours drive from Istanbul, as fast as Istanbul suburbs, and shares cultural similarities with Turkey. Turkish is the second language, and many Turkish investors utilize the many advantages. The real estate investment outlook in South West Bulgaria is better than other alternatives mentioned.
  • Turkish Citizenship offers a route to US E-2 Visas for Indian Citizens...

Netflix TV mini-series 'Rise of Empires: Ottoman' tops international ratings, increasing foreign demand for property in Istanbul
Netflix TV mini-series 'Rise of Empires: Ottoman'

Turkish Film & TV Exports Rank 2nd behind US Globally...

The new Netflix release, ‘Empires Rising: Ottoman’ is achieving notable new ‘firsts’ for the Istanbul and Turkish film industry. During the first full week of streaming, the six episode drama-documentary ranked 4th among top trending TV shows in the United States overall, briefly 2nd among Netflix shows, and 6th in binge viewing.

The impact of positive media projection upon property values in a specific location needs no explanation: the examples are evidenced far and wide. The more important question is whether that success is repeatable. If so, then Istanbul as a property investment location could well be on its way to assuming the status of a top global investment location, on par with the likes of Miami, London, Hong Kong, etc.

The production is notable for its apparent success in unifying different international audiences for Turkish productions, having grown over the last five years through the Middle East, and then Spain, Latin & South America. Achieving Netflix international objectives, Ottoman Rising is capturing viewing audiences in Northern Europe and North America, extending around the world to include India and Asia.

So the question remains, what potential is there for a repeat success? This article examines the issues more closely: funding, location, production, and of course the amazing Turkish actors and actresses involved... read more here!

The FIRST Step of the Investment Process…

Investors, the FIRST Step of the investment process is to complete the Advance Preparations: registrations for Tax ID, Foreign ID, Bank Accounts, Authorisations, etc. This will put you in position to close the deal on a property purchase with negotiated price discounts by making a full completion payment quickly and safely, thus securing ownership cost-effectively, and with least risk. Ask the Team at mytapu to assist you with the Advance Preparations: these can be done while visiting Turkey, or can be done remotely, where you are at, now.

Reservation Deposits for Buying Turkish Property: Advance Preparation is the Solution..

The alternative ? The alternative is to be ‘drawn in’ to a part payment (‘reservation deposit, part payment, etc). This alternative will:

 a) Increase your costs and risks;
 b) Weaken your negotiating position,
 c) Prevent achieving maximum discount; 
 d) Increase costs of legal protections to protect your part payment & legally bind the seller; 
 e) Increase the risks of hidden non-disclosure of information: the things you wish you had known about before, but only found out afterwards. 

Without Advance Preparations, you will be pressured into paying a ‘reservation deposit’ or other part payment: DO NOT.  Why? Read more here about why NOT to pay a reservation deposit, or part payment. Local Turkish buyers do NOT buy property this way, and do NOT pay reservation deposits. If YOU want to buy the same way, like a local Turk, read ‘The Guide’ explaining ‘How to Buy Like a Local’. Send an email to and ask for a Free copy of ‘The Guide, How to Buy Like a Local’.

Scanning the Internet, Searching for Property…?

If you do not speak Turkish, and do not search using the Turkish language, what you will find is pages and pages of websites designed only to lure non-Turkish speaking foreign buyers. These are the websites of english speaking agents. They do not do business with local Turkish buyers, because no Turk will deal with them. These agents want to do business in a specific way (that is to their advantage) that is only possible with unsuspecting foreign buyers. No local Turkish buyers will buy property this way... (continue reading).


How to Begin Your Property Purchase in Turkey

Using the internet to scan English speaking websites of property agents in Turkey is fine for ‘window shopping’, but to then start your property purchase procedure that way, is a mistake. If you do, the agent will lock you into their ‘marked-up’ prices with a falsely named ‘reservation deposit’, and what follows afterwards, is a long story of things you wish you had known before you paid, but didn’t find out until later.


Instead, there is a better way... (continue reading)... 

 Reality Check...

Surfing the Web Looking at Agents’ Websites for Property to Buy…? 

Time for a Reality Check…


 Do You Know…?

a) English language internet search engines are full of agents websites… but Turks don’t use them to buy: why would you…?
b) These english language websites are offering property to foreigners with hidden price mark-ups of 10%-20% and more…
c) Agents will tell you the Eksper Appraisal Reports value property 20-30% below the real price -they say this to hide their mark-ups
d) If you pay $250,000 for a property from an agent, and the Appraised Value is 20-30% less, you will not qualify for Citizenship
e) Purchasing from an Agent that marks prices up 20% means paying $300,000 for a property with an appraised value of $250,000.
f) More than 85% of property transactions in Turkey do not originate with agents, but with on-line portals ....
g) On these Turkish language portals, owners sell directly to buyers with NO agent in between… Turks do, and so can you...!

h) Turks do not use agents… if an agent is involved, most Turks simply will go elsewhere and find a different property….


Buying a property through on-line english language website agents is not smart… and will cost you BIG…

1) Buy Like a Local, using the Investors’ Tool-Kit at, with Turkish language help for non-Turkish speakers
2) Choose from a complete range of professional investment services
3) Search and find the best deals from the whole market (not just a few agents listings)
4) Apply all the required precautions to ensure buying safe and secure
5) Coordinate the property purchase procedure with the Citizenship Application procedure
6) Save $10,000 to $30,000 by avoiding agents’ hidden price mark-ups*
7) Save $ 7,500 in agents’ commissions*
8) Save $5,000 in stamp tax by ensuring the agent’s client, the seller, pays his share*

*Assuming a $250,000 purchase for Citizenship Application

Citizenship Property Investor Services Turkey

  Property Finder Services...

To find the property meeting your family's needs, the Professional Property Finders at provide a complete service:

Preparation of Fact Finding Report that details those requirements and the specific locations in Istanbul or elsewhere covering all coastal locations in Turkey that match.

 Identifying, presenting and arranging viewings of the properties in Istanbul and all coastal regions of Turkey. Providing the legal oversight to make sure the property is legal and the risks of transferring title, and conveyance, are properly managed.  

How does a Property Finder reduce a buyers cost of purchase?

 And Why this MUST be done for Citizenship Investors...

First a property finder negotiates a sales price down to save costs- so the buyer isn’t subsiding the agent’s commission as paid by the seller from a marked-up purchase price, which is otherwise the real situation, hidden from view.... 


Second, a property finder does the specific things required on each transaction to ensure the buyers’ rights and interests are protected, and for each of these tasks, charges simple reasonable fee. In this way the buyer is assured the work will be done on necessary things that need doing , without worrying about the much higher legal costs of having to pay for things to get done after the purchase is completed (the usual outcome).  


Misrepresentation – to ensure the property buyer is not mislead by agents regarding a properties location, legal documentation, and other matters. 

Legal Documentation- ensuring a property has the permits and documentation that shows  the property is legally compliant. 


Purchasing Procedures- to prevent agent’s leading the buyer down a path which places all the risk on the buyer and can result in a costly outcome, often requiring thousands of EUR in legal fees to rectify.


Deposits- to ensure the buyer is not required to pay a 'reservation' deposit and to if necessary, to ensure it is not done so without a legally valid contract.


Legal Contracts- to prevent the practice of agent's contracts which  do not protect the buyers deposit or rights and are not executed in a legally valid manner.


Valuations- to provide valid appraisal reports  essential for Citizenship investors , avoiding agents  common practice of arriving at their own valuations based on nothing more than a whim for sales purposes, while all along a legal and appraised valuation report is never discussed or mentioned.

Payment & Banking- to advise and assist the buyer in establishing bank accounts and arranging payment documentation for the property purchase.


High pressure tactics- to reduce the effect of psychological tricks and sales tactics used by agents to get a deposit.


A professional Property Finder knows not just which questions to ask, and which issues to check, but knows where to get the documentary proof, and how to cross check and apply it, under different circumstances.  This is especially important because every property purchase transaction is different, which is because Turkey is only slowly moving towards the type of standardisation that is common in many more developed countries.

Answer: The proof must be by bank transfer or banking documentary payment showing payment details. The value of the payment in Turkish Lira is calculated in US Dollars at the Central Bank’s effective rate on the date of the application. The proof of amount invested is confirmed by a licensed Appraisal Company, that submits an independent valuation of the property. Appraised values have been known to differ by as much as 20% from the sales prices charged by agents and developers, which is because they inflate their sales prices with top-ups above market prices as commission additions,  and so it is very important to ensure your purchase price is not inflated by these top-up commissions, and is at market value. A purchase of a property for $250,000 that is appraised at a valuation of 20% less would be only $200,000,and insufficient for Citizenship application. In other words, buying a property that is priced at 20% over market valuations would mean it is necessary to buy at a price of $312,500 or more, to qualify for the minimum investment of $250,000.
