The purchase of a holiday home must be both carefully and well thought through. Therefore it is important that you, as an interested buyer, consider as many important aspects as possible.
Consider questions such as:
Type: Apartment, penthouse or villa?
This is usually a matter regarding the size of investment you wish to make. As a general rule villas are located more secluded than apartments and penthouses. In return villas will often have a more quiet location. And with an apartment or penthouse you will often have access to facilities, shopping as well as cheaper price per square meter.
Size: How many bedrooms are required?
The vast majority of all holiday homes are built as so-called 2+1 apartments with two bedrooms and combined living room / kitchen (American kitchen). It is also the most popular type of apartment. But units with one bedroom (1+1) or 3 bedrooms (3+1) can easily be found.
For more than 3 bedrooms a penthouse must be considered. Since penthouse apartments are located on the top floors of the building the views are often fantastic just as most penthouses gives you access to a private roof terrace.
Location: City center, close to the beach or in a quiet residential area?
The most popular is often a combination of the above. That means a location just outside the city center in the suburbs of the city. This will provide a quiet location with easy access to shopping as well as easy transportation to the beach and city center.
Price levels and financing: What is the maximum budget and is financing needed?
It is possible to finance your Turkish holiday home through both Turkish and domestic banks.
