The List of Steps to Buying Property in Turkey 'the Local Way'...

Step 1: Advance Preparation

Step 2: Finding a Property

Step 3: Negotiating the Purchase: Due Diligence

Step 4: Conveyance of Title, Completion Payment & Discounts

A Comparison of Buying Procedures: The Agents Way vs The Local Way

Paying a Reservation Deposit or Part Payment ‘Locks the Buyer In’ …
Before Due Diligence, Legal Checks, Discounts, and Negotiating 'real' discounts…
And Beware...the Lawyers referred by Agents or Developers are most often working ’with’ the agents and NOT the Buyer...

This is the way so many foreign buyers have come to own Turkish property that is legally defective without permits, and paid 20% - 30% over market prices...

Local Turks do NOT buy property this way and neither should YOU...!


Buy Like a Local…. A Safer, Smarter, Better Way… the mytapu way

A reservation deposit’ doesn’t reserve anything…under Turkish Law a seller can not be forced to sell a property to a buyer, even with a contract ! 

The 'reservation deposit' is simply a misleading ruse for an Agent to obtain a partial commission in advance... and will cost the buyer time and legal fees to have it returned...

A real discount of 5% discount off a price marked-up in advance by 20% is not a 'real' discount... as the appraisal valuation report will prove...

‘Buying Like a Local’ means no reservation deposit, no price mark-up, no agent’s commission!

Buying a property is a substantial investment – making sensible precautions to protect that investment at the beginning of the buying process, is the smartest step to ensuring trouble-free outcome, at the end.
