Property Maintenance Costs in Turkey

The purchase of a house or apartment always entails expenses for its maintenance. Real estate in Turkey is no exception. Russian citizens who are happy to buy housing in this warm country do not always think about how much it will cost them a new property after purchase.

It should be noted that maintaining Turkish real estate is somewhat cheaper than, for example, Spanish. Real estate tax in Turkey is lower, the cost of utilities is less. However, to completely avoid the costs will not work. Foreign citizens who have bought a home in Turkey pay the same taxes and fees as the locals.

Property tax
This type of fees depends on the type of real estate – whether it is residential or commercial, it is a house or apartment, an economy class or a luxury segment. In general, the tax amount on an apartment, villa, house or apartment ranges from 0.1% to 0.2% of its value. The minimum amount is paid by residents of small cities and towns, and those who live in large urban centers – shell out to the maximum. However, the cadastral value of housing is often much lower than the real one, and therefore the tax is not large. Continue reading

How we decided to buy an apartment on the Costa Daurada

There were several reasons for this. Firstly, I learned about the real-estate crisis in 2008–2013, which has hit a price crisis. in this country. It continues now, although, in fairness, we note that prices are no longer as “tasty” as before, when apartments could be bought at half price from their real value.

Secondly, the number of sunny days at any point on the Mediterranean coast is more than 300 days, for our person it is just a paradise.

Thirdly, I realized that it is not necessary to buy a penthouse on the seashore for a couple of hundred thousand euros – there are cheaper options in small towns some distance from the coast at a price 2-3 times cheaper.

Fourth, here you can take a mortgage even to a non-resident at a ridiculous interest. I will add to these reasons the normal infrastructure in the cities of the coast, safety and delicious cuisine. And then my mother-in-law died, leaving a 3-room apartment in the center of Yekaterinburg, which can be sold. In general, they knocked out their resources, multiplied by a huge desire to buy a house in Spain, and began to search. Continue reading
