Advantages of buying real estate in Turkey in installments

There is no doubt that the installment service provides the owner of the money with an opportunity that he will not have to freeze the capital he owns due to the purchase of a property.

Is it possible to buy a property in Turkey with a bank loan? 

One of the advantages of real estate investment in Turkey is the possibility of buying real estate through a bank loan, where the bank, instead of you, buys the property and pays its financial value. The property is registered in the name of the investor, then a mortgage sign is placed on the property by the bank, and when the investor or property owner finishes paying the full value of the installments to the bank, the bank immediately raises the mortgage sign on the property.


Advantages of buying a property in Turkey through the bank:

The process of buying real estate in Turkey through a bank loan is characterized by the low amount required per month for the installment, compared to other methods, where the repayment periods are long-term, starting from five years and may last for ten years sometimes in some banks, but there is a defect in this method, which is the increase in the total value of the property compared to other methods that include direct installments through a construction company.
