Investors sometimes are curious how they can find a property to buy at mytapu.com, because there are not many properties listed on the website…
The answer is pleasantly surprising, as you will discover below….
Looking for a property in Turkey? The typical way to find property in Turkey is to ‘walk–into’ or call a local estate agent, or to scan an agent’s website. The problem with this approach is, that most local agent’s follow a business procedure that is to their benefit, and not the buyer. This means they push all the risks onto the buyer, and focus on obtaining their commission.
What are the risks? Selling property without proper planning certificates, and requiring the buyer to pay a ‘reservation deposit’ before providing proof of title and legal status of the property, are two risks, for example…Most international agents rely on local agents, and follow these same practices, so the risks remain….
These are not the practices and procedures followed by local Turkish people when buying property. Instead they follow a more simple and risk averse approach. At mytapu.com, we use the same approach followed by locals, for the international buyers of Turkish property….
And it’s not only the purchasing procedures that are better at mytapu.com. The property sourcing procedures are better. When a buyer registers with mytapu.com, the buyer isn’t limited to purchasing a property just from those listed on the mytapu website- the buyer can find a property anywhere, with any agent, on any website- and mytapu.com will do the rest.
So how does a buyer know where to look? The answer depends on what they are looking for- type of property, locations, amenities, special considerations.
Yes, mytapu.com can help with that too- we have been advising buyers of Turkish real estate up and down the Turkish Riviera coast, and in Istanbul, since the late 1980’s- long before it became so fashionable.
And there’s more…! At mytapu.com, the Property Finders' Service provides buyers with three especially effective services to find the right property.
First, for exclusive luxury residences, we source from our own internal database of high-networth owners. These are the families that own and run Turkey’s largest industrial holding companies and investment banks, and their advisers, and executive suite personnel.
Hotel Apartment Investments Included
Second, for properties priced from EUR 35,000 to EUR 1.5 million, we source from our own internal database of 3,000 + international owners that we have provided services to over the preceding 10 years plus. This is a wide network that encompasses many professionals in the real estate sector in Turkey: mortgage bankers, attorneys, and other investors from tourism and other sectors.
Third, a researcher at mytapu.com scans the online property portals in Turkey to find the property meeting the buyer’s specifications.
The online portals are where 85%+ of all property transactions have been originating over the past few years.
Of course, the buyer may do this themselves, if they speak Turkish, but otherwise, mytapu.com is happy to provide this service.
No more worries about which agent, which website… mytapu.com provides better solutions all around.
