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 to begin your property purchase procedure, which is to put yourself into the same position as a local Turkish buyer, and to buy the property with the same procedure as a local Turkish buyer (no ‘reservation deposit’ …! ). To do this requires some advance preparation: local registrations, bank account opening, authorisations etc. And if you are a Citizenship Investor, this is the time to establish the relationship with the Citizenship application processing agent.
Ask the Team at mytapu.com how they can guide and assist you with these Advance Preparations for Purchase: it is cheaper and more easily done when you are visiting Turkey, but can also be done without visiting Turkey. Once the Advance Preparations have been done, you are then in position to purchase property the same advantageous way as local Turks. And then you have options: searching the English speaking agents’ websites; buying from the ‘for sale by owner’ Turkish language portals; or using a Property Finding Service to search even more channels. No matter which way you choose to move forward with your purchase, you are now in a position to avoid the ‘reservation deposit’ scam, and the Team at mytapu.com can provide you guidance on that too, as well as how to negotiate price discounts.
And for Citizenship investors, the mytapu.com way, ensures that all aspects of your purchase are coordinated and managed effectively for your Citizenship application procedure.
