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.
The best that can happen is that your search takes you on a journey to view 10, 100, or perhaps 1,000 properties. Viewing 10,000 this way is a lot of work. But is this really the best way to find the property you want?
Consider this: there are more than 1,000,000 properties on the market for sale in Istanbul alone, and more than 2,000,000 in all of Turkey: these english speaking websites only provide glimpses of a small fraction.
Searching the web to view properties is a good way to get a general idea with ‘window shopping’, but is it really the smartest way to find a property to buy ?
Instead, consider the alternative: using a Property Finding Service. This is the way to have your own personal assistant do all the searching for you, in Turkish language, and provide you a short list of properties meeting your criteria, to consider and choose from. And there’s more: the Property Finding Service will search the main sources of property transactions in Turkey that you will never find and navigate without using the Turkish language, AND the Property Finder Service will also guide you as to the relative merits of different locations, provide insights on legal checks, real market prices (not the ‘marked-up prices’ on English language websites), and guide you in avoiding the pitfalls, tricks, and traps used by agents.
