Buying a resale property directly from the owner or a reputable Real Estate agent such as Summer Home has distinct advantages over buying a new home. Turkey is a country with many different areas in which to live. Istanbul is popular with young, trendy types looking to work in a busy metropolis, but areas in the West and South of Turkey tend to attract foreigners looking for a laid back, tranquil way of life.
Furniture- Most resale properties come complete with furniture, crockery, cutlery and white goods. This not only saves you money and time but means you can quite often move straight in.
Cheaper- Land prices in Turkey have increased significantly this year and as a result, new buildings now cost more. Resale properties can be purchased at bargain prices and there is the potential to negotiate with the owner, saving yourself money.
Established Areas- most resale properties come up for sale in fully developed areas. This means that the neighbourhood is established with all the infrastructure and transport links in place.
Location- your chosen location may not have new developments but will have a list of resale properties that are quick and easy for you to view.
Style- Buying new means that quite often, all the properties look the same, whereas buying a resale means that you can look for a property with a personality and unique style. Traditional stone-built houses tend to be out of the main tourist areas in slightly quieter villages. By buying a pre-loved home, you can personalise it by extending or remodelling to your requirements. Older properties also tend to have a garden.
