Tips On Selling A Property in Turkey

If you are a foreign Turkish property owner with a vacation home or an expat residing in the country permanently, you may decide to sell at some point for personal or financial reasons. Naturally, you’ll want to learn how to sell your home in Turkey quickly and for the best price possible.


Because your Turkish property is one of your most important net worth assets, it is critical to re-enter the Turkish real estate market properly informed. We have assisted many foreign property owners in Turkey in selling their homes, and there are unique reasons why some sell faster than others and why some owners obtain the price they want without having to accept offers.


What is the Best Way to Sell a House in Turkey?

There are some suggestions below to help you sell your property fast and for the price you desire, but there are two things you should be aware of.


1: Some older Turkish homes lack an Iskan door (habitation certificate.) In certain circumstances, these residences have higher utility charges, which immediately deters purchasers. Furthermore, Turkish banks will not lend money to those who do not have an Iskan, thus you are limited to a certain segment of the housing market. If you sell your home in Turkey without an Iskan, potential purchasers will demand a significant discount to cover the expense of qualifying for one.


2: Second, if everything is in order and your property is well-maintained as well as priced correctly, be prepared to sell swiftly. Houses in Turkey are sold at a faster rate than in other nations, and if your buyer is a Turk with immediate cash, the transaction will take only one to two days at most. (If you can’t be in Turkey for the transaction, talk to us about power of attorney.)

Prepare the necessary paperwork

Gather all of the documents you’ll need to sell your home, including title deeds, an Iskan (habitation certificate), a notarized passport, a Turkish tax number, and two passport pictures. You’ll also need to produce proof of current council tax and, if applicable, apartment aidat payments at the time of sale.


Jobs in Maintenance

Complete all maintenance tasks, such as fixing leaking faucets, removing gunk from shower heads, and repairing damaged cabinets. Is the house in need of a fresh coat of paint? A deep clean of the furniture, storage cabinets, drapes, walls, and floors is also a good idea at this time.



A property that purchasers can’t imagine as their own is the biggest turnoff for them. Place all family photographs and personal objects in a safe place. De-clutter your home at the same time. All of these will go a long way toward assisting the buyer in seeing the home as their own.


Photographs taken by professionals

Professional images highlight the property’s greatest features and pique potential buyers’ attention right away. A professional photographer is worth the money if your photography abilities aren’t up to pace.


Unique Selling Proposition

Unique selling features include a wide balcony, separate kitchen, fitted closets, double glazing, security bars, and a hot water boiler. Make a list of your home’s distinguishing features that set it apart from other houses on the market. Sell Property in Turkey fast by international Marketing
