For those of you searching for a holiday home or wanting to invest in a property in Turkey a great way of buying a first home is by investing in a resale property. This is an ideal way of purchasing a property because generally they are more affordable than a new build apartment or villa. Another advantage is that often resale properties in Turkey come fully furnished thus saving on furniture packages.
Now, you may think you don’t want to have some else’s furniture but consider this, if the sellers have only used their property a couple of times a year over the past 5 years say, that mean the furniture has only been used a maximum of 10 times. Its food for thought isn’t it? Especially when you think about the white goods, the washing machine, fridge/freezer and cooker are virtually brand new.
Buying a resale property in Turkey also means that all the little problems that occur with most new builds have already been sorted out. Leaking taps will have been fixed or any electric problems have been sorted out. It’s a bit like buying a used car that has very little mileage on the clock, the body work is in excellent condition, no scratches on the paint work and is less than a year old; it offers excellent value for money.
The chances are air con units will have been fitted to all rooms, which is a godsend during the summer months, mosquito nets will also have been fitted and there will be lampshades in all rooms too. All of these items add up when buying a brand new property so to be able to purchase a property with all of these items included in the price is a massive saving for you.
Another expense is curtains, blinds and sun protection curtains. Usually there is a back curtain which looks like a shower curtain (comes in all colours) this is perfect for hot days when it completely blocks the sun out from the room. In front of this is often a decorative lace curtain which basically looks pretty and if you wish you can then have a normal curtain as you would in the UK. To curtain an apartment can be pricey to curtain a villa is even more expensive, so a resale once again offers great value.
Resale properties in Turkey – are a mix of apartments, duplexes, penthouses and villas. Usually owners of apartment’s upgrade to a villa or invest in a different location in Turkey for a change of scenery. Apartments start at 1 or 2 bedrooms, a duplex offers 3 or 4 bedrooms, a penthouse is usually 4 & 5 bedrooms and villas normally start at 3 to possibly 7+ bedrooms.
Resale apartments, duplexes and penthouses in Turkey – can be part of a small block of apartments with or without a communal pool however they are generally close to the beach so maybe a pool isn’t always necessary. Or apartments can be found on sprawling complexes with communal pools, a bar, restaurant, gym, children’s play area and a games room, again these apartments are usually close to beaches so the choice is yours.
Resale villas in Turkey – if your family is larger or you simply want more space, a villa is the better option for you. They can be part of complex of villas or stand alone in their own grounds or you can buy a semi detached villa. Villas which are part of a complex sometimes have private pools and a large communal pool which you can use. A stand alone villa will more often than not have its own good sized pool set in landscaped gardens. A semi detached villa is a great option if you want to share the upkeep of a pool but want mainly privacy, the chances of you being on holiday when the other owners are out is minimal.
Luxury resale property in Turkey – this is where you hit the jackpot, beautiful luxurious re sale properties are a gem to find, sometimes the owner takes all the furniture with them on their move but sometimes they don’t! Obviously buyers who invest in luxury properties in Turkey also decorate tastefully with beautiful furniture and accessories. Only the very best white goods packages have been bought including air con units and mostly the properties don’t even look like they have been lived in.
If you’re looking to grab yourself an absolute bargain, invest in resale property in Turkey!
