|Some of the questions we
have been asked, and we keep adding to this list - first, property
Q: How long
does it take to find our dream home?
A: As long as it takes.
Q: Once we
have found it, how long does all the legal paperwork take?
A: Less than a day.
Q: How long
before we get the official deeds to our new home?
A: Depending on overall demand, the deeds can take up to 13
weeks to come back.
Q: How much
deposit do we need to pay, and in what currency?
A: The amount depends on what is agreed between you and the
vendor. This can be anything - £1k, 25%, even (but rarely)
the full amount - Turkey is no different to anywhere else,
and money talks - we have sold houses at amazing prices where
the buyers can put the cash on the table there and then, but
this isn't the norm. Deposits can be in Sterling, Turkish
Lira, Euro's. "Off Plan" and New developments can
offer attractive stage payments over various lengths of time,
while the project is being completed.
Q: If we change
our minds, will we forfeit our deposit?
A: Definitely, Yes! Not to us, to the vendor. This is why
we run a completely 'pressure free' agency. We won't take
you anywhere near the Government Notary Offices to do the
paperwork until you are absolutely sure.
Q: Do you
know your stuff?
A: The most important people, our clients will agree that
we certainly do. You can ask them yourself!
Q: Will we
see a good range of properties?
A: Of course. We are tied to no developer. We can show you
everything in our area that meets your budget and personal
requirements. All the major developers work closely with Taurean.
They don't all deal with all agents - so you may not see the
full range elsewhere.
Q: How do
we know you will find us the property that is right for us,
rather than right for you?
A: Because we know Calis Beach, we live in Calis Beach (NOT
together!) and because we live there, we will be seeing you
year in, year out - and eating in the same restaurants as
you. We don't need unhappy customers in our home town! You
might shout at us when we are showing new clients around,
and that might be a little bad for business. Not many agents
live in Calis.
Q: How can
we speak to past clients, to get an independent view?
A: Please use the contact form to request this.
Q: We need
to know a little more about you before we arrange to come
out and see you - can you help?
A: You can call us (00 90 252 6132377) to discuss anything
and everything to do with buying a property in Turkey. We
also run the Calis Beach Resort Information Website - a trifling
little affair with just 1,000,000 hits a month. Our lives
are laid bare in the Calis Beach Discussion Forums there,
feel free to browse or sign up as a member and say hello.
Of course, if you would like to ask anything specific, feel
free to do so using the contact form on this site. We do try
not to be a little more than a couple of people you meet for
the first time knowing nothing about - after all, would you
really want to transfer tens of thousands of pounds to someone
you know next to nothing about?
