Basic Requirements To Buying A Property In Turkey

Every country has a minimum set of rules to follow while purchasing a property. Likewise, Turkey has its requirements. The fulfillment of these rules will decide your permanent citizenship. Here are some basic requirements for purchasing a property in Turkey:

    • The Minimum value of the property should be $250,000. You can purchase either a single property or multiple properties. 
    • The official valuation of the property is done by the “Banking Supervision Board”.
    • Applicants who book their property in Turkey cannot sell it for 3 years. 


  • Any transfer or sale amount of the property will be done by bank transfers only.     


After you purchase a property, you can apply for a passport with all the relevant legal documents. You will be guided by a real estate agent on purchasing property along with getting a passport. The documents are submitted to the authorities. After verification, you will be handed your residence between 1 month and a passport within 4-6 months.
