some of the best projects to live at istanbul 2020
Buying a property with the aim of housing in Istanbul is completely different from buying a property for investment. We previously wrote about the 10 best investment projects in Istanbul 2021.
In fact, when we want to talk about the best housing project in Istanbul, it may seem that the task is not only difficult, but impossible, because the residential property has advantages that vary in importance according to the needs of the buyer, as there was one goal in investment, whether in the short or long term, but in housing, priorities differ from a person to another, in today's article we will draw attention to some important points that must be taken into consideration when choosing a property for the purpose of housing in Istanbul.
What are the questions that must be answered when deciding to buy a property in Istanbul?
1. Is the property required for housing or investment?
It is one of the most ambiguous questions that we face with some customers about finding a clear answer to it, so we often hear I want a suitable property for housing and investment at the same time, and in fact, such an option is only available in very few projects, not exceeding the number of ten, while we at Right Home Company have more than 270 projects all over Istanbul, some of them suitable for housing and others for investment.
The investment real estate whose goal is to profit, for that, the location and the status of the project are the main factors in choosing the right property. As for the size, view, and the number of rooms, they are not essential matters in investment real estate.
As for the residential real estate, it has specifications that suit each person separately. Some want the bustling life in the city center, others prefer quiet homes in the countryside with sea views, and another may prefer cheap properties that are as close as possible to the workplace regardless of the size and recreational facilities available within the project and there are many examples will be detailed later.
2. What is the right location for you to live in Istanbul?
Do you have a job in a specific area that you prefer to reach on foot or with a driving time of less than 15 minutes? Or do you like to rely on very advanced public transportation in Istanbul, as you can go 25 km in a time not exceeding 20 minutes by public transport, and thus you can live far from your work and near the public transport station in the area that you deem appropriate?
Do you have children considering your home near their schools or universities?
Does your business depend a lot on traveling and therefore do you need a home with easy access to the airport?
Whatever your needs, if you can choose the right location with the help of a professional real estate consultant, you have already cut more than half the way in your trip to buy a residential property in Istanbul, but in any case, even if you do not have an answer to this question, you can proceed to the rest of the questions and when answered, the answer will be automatically for this question.
3. What is the sufficient area for you and how many rooms are required?
When buying a property with the aim of housing, this means that the possibility of reselling it will be very small, even after several years, you have to choose a property with a suitable area for your needs and the needs of your family in the present and near future.
Also determining the number of rooms is an important issue, so sometimes we find a 125 square meter apartment consisting of two rooms, a large living room, two bathrooms, and a large balcony, and this same apartment can form three rooms and a living room with fewer spaces, there is no better option than one, but there is a more suitable option for your needs than others.
Also, the number of bathrooms, and is the kitchen closed or open, are important matters for finding the right fit for you when choosing an apartment for the purpose of housing.
4. What is your budget to buy this property in the form of a minimum and a maximum?
This question is the main focus that can be relied upon for both the real estate consultant and the buyer, as the real estate consultant can, when determining the required area and budget, propose the appropriate areas to the buyer, and the buyer can inversely benefit from the evaluation of areas in choosing the appropriate budget to buy his property.
Today everyone realizes that the pricing of new real estate is done by the developers who own the project and is agreed upon between real estate brokerage companies and developers so that commissions are taken upon sale from the developer and not from the buyer (while in resale properties both the seller and the buyer pays a commission to the brokerage company) and thus there is no longer. Any concern about disclosing your real budget, this will help the real estate consultant in finding suitable offers for your budget directly, sometimes when the budget is disclosed you can be advised by the real estate consultant that may change your plan drastically for the better, in the end, you will not pay any amount before you are fully convinced that this real estate is the best fit for your needs.
5. The adjacent neighbourhood and services within the residential complex:
These details are not of great importance when buying an investment property, but it is very important if your goal is to live and settle in this property, here we do not mean near or far transportation and education and health centres where these points were discussed when choosing the location of the property above, we are here discussing the fact that is the residential neighbourhood suitable for you and your family in terms of harmony and safety?
Will your children find a nurturing environment for them? Would you feel safe leaving your home?
This leads us to the importance of services within the complex itself. Are they sufficient and appropriate for you?
Are the safety and surveillance rules actually enforced 24/7?
Many details that our real estate consultant can begin by introducing you to just submit your request and answer the above questions.
To simplify this process, we will be satisfied with these points above and we will look at some examples of distinctive residential projects and what are the specifications that they have.
