Detailed Real Estate Buying Process in Turkey

1. Preparing a Wish List & Finding the Property

You need to define your expectations for your desired property. Just focusing on price may mislead your property search. It would be better to contact a professional real estate agency to get a location selection. If an agent understands your purpose and your criteria well, it will be easy to find a property that matches your wish list.

2. Arranging Viewing Tour

After you select the properties that suit you, you need to visit the property. You may need to see the environment and experience the atmosphere of this new district. The photos might be illusive in the internet ads. Many people decide when they see the property for the first time if it is good or not!

TEKCE offers TeleProperty service. You may visit the property via an online call like WhatsApp, Zoom, etc. We drive to the property from the central points of the city and let you understand the location and the property itself. 40% of our sales are completed through online viewing tours.

3. Agreeing on Sales Conditions

The terms of the agreement are negotiated with the seller for the property you have chosen, and the payment terms are agreed upon.

4. Making Deposit Payment

When the terms of the agreement are met, you should pay the deposit to reserve the property and fix the price. This payment is usually 5,000 USD or EURO.

5. Signing the Contract

The contract is signed after examining and agreeing the terms of the agreement. The company's in-house property lawyers will guide the buyer and seller to prepare the sales contract on agreed terms.

6. Obtaining Tax Number

You need a Turkish tax number to complete the property purchase. TEKCE team will be guiding you to get your tax number.

7. Opening a Bank Account

You should open a bank account for money transfers for the buying process and payment of utility bills, etc. after you get your property. Required documents for opening a bank account are a passport copy and passport translation at the notary. A utility bill is mandatory; your name and your residential address must be on a utility bill.
