One of the most important provisions of the Turkish Constitution is that it allows a foreigner to own real estate in Turkey remotely and through the Internet without the need for personal presence, and all of this is within regular procedures.
Recently, online real estate sales have increased due to the preventive measures imposed due to the Coronavirus. Travel and movement between countries are no longer available. As a result, many construction companies have tended to sell their properties this way and are committed to providing all guarantees that reassure the customer.
But how can a property be purchased in this way? What motivates many people to follow? Many details related to this matter can be found in the following lines.
Steps to follow when buying property online in Turkey:
1- Real estate investigation:
First, whoever buys a property online should write to the construction company or the seller to inquire about the property and its advantages and to know the essential details. The most critical information that must be presented in this regard is the area in which the property is located, the area of the property, and its price.
2 - View the property and see some of the available options:
The real estate company dealing with it must inform the customer about the most critical options in the real estate market in Turkey that fit his desires and his financial budget. Therefore, viewing the property and its details through a video is essential.
3- Acquisition procedures:
After the property is selected, an agency must be sent to the real estate company or broker through the Turkish embassy or consulate in the buyer's country. Then the real estate authority will undertake all legal procedures, organize papers, and negotiate the right and price and the delivery date. Finally, the contract will be signed and the first payment sent of its price through the bank.
In the next stage, the real estate company will register the title deed in the buyer's name and then send copies of all signed contracts and papers to the person concerned.
