  • Research the area and region you intend to invest in thoroughly - visits to the region are strongly recommended.
  • Know why you are buying the property - personal use, investment or both.
  • Know what your budget is and make sure you allow for additional costs over and above the property price (Agents Fees, Taxes etc)
  • Stick by the decisions you have made in terms of requirements
  • Ensure your financial arrangements are in place and funds are available - shop around for finance and consider all options.
  • Ensure the agent(s) / developer(s) you chose to deal with are a registered company and registered with the local Estate Agents Association.
  • Make use of your time in Kusadasi getting to know the area and what it has to offer and inspect a good range of properties before making your decision.
  • If you are considering buying within a new development, research the background of the Developers and Builders and make sure you are comfortable with their credentials before signing any documentation or paying any deposits.

Our website and services have been designed with the intending purchaser in mind. We have endeavoured to provide you with comprehensive information regarding Turkey, The Kusadasi Area and the process and legalities of property investment in Turkey.

Once you have decided that Turkey and the Kusadasi area is the right location to find your place in the sun, our role is to:

Talk through your requirements including:

  • Accommodation needs - number of bedrooms, bathrooms etc.
  • Type of Property - Villa, Apartment
  • Additional requirements - Swimming Pool, Garden, Air conditioning etc.
  • Reasons for buying - personal use or investment or both.
  • How often do you intend to use the property yourself
  • Do you intend renting it on a short or long term basis
  • Location preferences
  • Your budget (don't forget to factor in additional costs)
  • Time frame from search to purchase

Based on this knowledge, we will gather a number of properties that we feel best suit your requirements and arrange to send full details to you.

At this point, we would strongly recommend that you visit Kusadasi – inspection trips are available all year round with direct flights from April till early November and an Istanbul stop off other months.  Many of our customers include property viewing as part of their one or two week package holiday. Please contact us directly if you require further information or view our Inspection Flights page.

Whilst some of our customers in the past have bought property for investment without visiting Turkey, in our experience, an inspection trip and personal viewing will ensure that you are 100% happy with your decision.

Once in Turkey, we will arrange a number of property viewings where you will be personally guided through your chosen properties to view by one of our property consultants - this part of the process should be enjoyable, informative and we guarantee you there will be no pressure put on you to make a quick decision.

Many customers do decide to buy whilst in Turkey but others prefer to make that decision at home and either return to Turkey at a later date to complete their purchase or appoint a Power of Attorney to complete the final buying process on their behalf. We respect this decision and will only proceed with an agreement at the pace suitable and comfortable to our clients.

Once you have made your decision and identified the property you wish to purchase, we will guide you through the buying process and personally manage all procedures and processes on your behalf.
