Financial Plan Before Purchasing a Property in Turkey

If you plan to buy a holiday home while you are in Turkey, we recommend you to check your financial status before your arrival.
Whether you plan to visit Turkey to buy or just research, you must know what your financial situation is.
Payment options for buying a ready home or a home that is under construction stage differ. A general rule is that the terms of payment and the purchase price go hand in hand.

Generally, it is not necessary to have access to large sums of cash. In most cases, it works to make the payment by bank transfer after you have put a cash deposit to secure your purchase. However, if you expect to have access to your purchase amount during your visit, then check with your bank before you travel. Ask your bank how long it takes to release your funds from your account and make a possible transfer to Turkey.
If you would like to make your purchase with a loan, we recommend you to discuss this with your credit issuer and ask for a written confirmation of the amount you can loan and the timeframe within which the amount can be distributed.
It is also possible to take out a loan in a Turkish bank, we work with one of Turkey's leading banks - Deniz Bank.
