How to choose a property in Alanya?

Alanya is especially attractive for foreigners who want to buy an apartment in Turkey. And it is not surprising, because this is one of the most beautiful and developed Turkish cities. Real estate here is relatively inexpensive, and the high level of infrastructure and service is extremely delightful.

It is important to understand that there are certain risks to be aware of. Therefore, the specialists of the agency "Gold Ahiskali" have collected the necessary information for you and prepared this article.

District selection

Speaking about Alanya, we mean not only the city itself, but also its wonderful provinces. Which area is better to choose? It all depends on your preferences, goals, requirements, financial capabilities and lifestyle.

Before making a choice, answer yourself the following questions.

  • Are you planning to buy an apartment to live in it all year round or have a rest during the season? 
  • Do you need a property to make a profitable investment? 
  • What kind of vacation do you prefer? 
  • Do you have minor children? 
  • Do you like sandy or pebble beaches? 
  • Are you planning to move here for permanent residence? 
  • How much are you willing to spend?

To find the most convenient and profitable option, it is best to contact a trusted agency. With a good reputation, excellent prospects and positive references.

Alanya center

Very nice area with well developed service. There are interesting sights here. All the necessary infrastructure is within walking distance. The closer to the sea, the more expensive the apartments are.

There are not many new buildings here, since almost the entire territory is already built up. If you are looking for a modern residential complex with all possible entertainment, then it is better to pay attention to one of the suburbs.

It is in the center that the famous Cleopatra beach is located, the beauty of which is still legendary.

Avsallar

Quiet and calm town, clean beaches, fresh air. The new residences are located some distance from the sea, but their infrastructure is impressive. The service level is very high. Apartments can be found to suit all tastes, from studios to penthouses and duplexes.

Mahmutlar

One of the most cost effective suburbs. New buildings here are growing like mushrooms after rain, which makes it possible to conclude a profitable deal even at the construction stage.

Mahmutlar has everything that foreign investors and those who want to move to warmer regions with their families can wish for. The cost of real estate is quite affordable. You can find both inexpensive and luxurious options.

Kargicak

A picturesque area with stunning nature - the views from the balconies and terraces will enchant you. There is a large selection of luxury residential complexes offering a truly high standard of living.

Around the majestic mountains, banana and orange plantations, clean air, impeccable cleanliness and beauty of the beaches. The city is located not far from the center, but it has everything you need for rest and life.

Oba

One of the most prestigious options, which borders directly on the center of Alanya. It can be reached on foot in just 10 minutes along the lively promenade. Mostly Turks and Europeans live here. The service is perfectly adapted for both tourists and foreigners who want to settle on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea.

And then there is Kestel, Demirtash, Cikcilli. It doesn't matter if you choose the center or suburb of Alanya. Impeccable ecology, amazing nature, gorgeous beaches and comfortable accommodation are already waiting for you. Just be very careful when making a deal.

Dishonest realtors and scammers

Turkey is a mysterious country for tourists and investors. Without knowing the Turkish language and laws, you can find yourself in a difficult situation. Remember!

  • High-quality and promising real estate in Alanya cannot be cheap. If you are offered to buy an apartment that costs less than 30 thousand euros, then most likely you will have to spend a lot on repairs. 
  • The sale of mortgaged housing is another of the frequent manipulations. In order not to get into a mess, carefully check all documents and assess the risks. 
  • Free translators - they are offered exclusively by scammers. How can you understand everything the seller is talking about without knowing the language? Qualified realtors work with specially trained translators. And all the documentation is in Russian. 
  • Reduced rates - often the seller tries to convince the buyer to conclude a deal, deliberately lowering the cost of after-sales service. 
  • Residential area - before buying, specify what part of the living area is made up of balconies and terraces. Sellers often forget to mention this.

And one more thing - never pay before you see your future home and sign the contract. Do not trust video filming if it is offered by the owner or some intermediary. The risk of fraud is high.

It is best to use the free tour to Turkey service to see firsthand the housing, be it a resale or a new building. You can see the city and its provinces, appreciate all the delights of the future life.

If you need an apartment in Alanya, it is best to contact a real estate agency, where you will be provided not only with the services of an interpreter and a lawyer accompanying the transaction from start to finish, but also with bank guarantees.

Buying an apartment in Alanya under construction

Buying an apartment in Alanya with an interest-free installment plan is an interesting prospect, don't you agree? Indeed, many developers offer the most favorable conditions in new residential complexes during the construction phase. But it is important to understand that even this option is associated with certain risks.

First, the company can go bankrupt before the end of construction. And then your prospects will remain in dreams. To avoid this, you need competent support - cooperation with a real estate agency.

Secondly, by making a deal directly with the developer, you can be sold mortgaged property. Like this? Often the facility itself is built on land that belongs to another person. Some of the apartments in the residential complex may belong to the owner of the land plot. But they will forget to tell you about it. Check all documents very carefully before purchasing.

Verification of documents for real estate in Turkey

What documents must the developer present to prove the legality of the future transaction?

  • TAPU is a certificate of ownership, the main official document. 
  • ISKAN is an act of putting a house into operation, a technical passport of an object. Before signing the contract, make sure that there are no pitfalls. 
  • IPOTEK - mortgage encumbrance imposed by the bank on the owner who did not have time to repay the loan in full. 
  • ICRA - real estate arrest, which is imposed as a result of legal disputes or for debts.

These two documents can only be obtained with the help of a lawyer or at the request of the seller. Don't forget about them.

Checking documentation without knowing Turkish is not the right position for a buyer. But as we said earlier, a dubious translator will also not be able to become competent support in this matter.

There is another way - to film everything, so that in the future you can prove your case. But you should know that for this you need to obtain special permission. Without it, video filming is not only invalid in court, but is also considered illegal.

Apartment maintenance in Turkey, expenses and taxes

The high standard of living in the Turkish provinces comes with some additional costs that foreign buyers need to be aware of.

  • Tax at registration of the transaction, which is 4% of the cost of housing, as well as state duty. 
  • Annual tax - up to 0.2% of the value of real estate. 
  • State insurance DASK - compulsory, 40 euros per year. 
  • Utilities - electricity, water. 
  • Aydat - payment for the maintenance of the residential complex and its infrastructure.

Aydat is a payment that foreign investors, including those from Russia, often do not know about. Choosing a luxury residential complex with a water park, several swimming pools, a spa complex, large parking lots and an abundance of entertainment, be prepared that the monthly subscription will be quite solid.
