When you consider buying a property, financing is an important matter. Banks make it easier with their mortgage opportunities. Turkish banks supply mortgages to loanees up to 75% of the property value. The property value is audited by a sworn appraiser according to SPK (Turkish Capital Market Authority) regulations. This report contains a due-diligence, too. Read more about valuation reports.
Foreigners may get a loan of up to 50% of the property value. Foreigners choose USD or Euro currencies as it is more advantageous than TL since it already contains inflation rates.
