Turkey received bad press for many years regarding property sales and many investors were ripped off when Turkey first opened its doors to foreigners buying property there. Investors were lured by the unbelievably cheap property prices and many invested off plan. I personally know quite a few who lost their money but in all honesty they didn’t go through agents to find the best builders, they took the advice of the waiter at the local bar and as I have said many times, you wouldn’t do that in the UK so why do it in Turkey?
Off plan is when you pay your money upfront before the property is built or it’s paid in staged payments as the build progresses. It is true many buyers lost their money for various reasons, sometimes the builder went bust or he may have resold a property many times over. Therefore for many buyers they prefer to invest in key ready properties, a key ready property is literally as it says, the property is built and once you have paid for the property the key is yours and you are ready to move in.
Times have changed and with the Government implementing new rules and regulations, buying off plan is now regarded as a safe investment. Of course you need to find a reputable agent who has carried out their own due diligence in order to work with these developers. Always use a good agent and take advice from others who have bought through them. Generally you will pay more for a key ready property and for many the extra money outweighs the risk that they are concerned about. I am always asked is buying off plan a safe investment? The answer is yes as long as you buy with a reputable agent and use the services of a solicitor.
Nevertheless, some buyers still prefer to buy key ready properties as they would rather see a property already built and know exactly what they are getting for their money. There are many key ready properties for sale throughout Turkey and if you are an investor or holiday home buyer all you need to do first is to pick your location – once you have that, finding your ideal property is much easier than you think!
