Understanding The Background Of Property Consultancy in Turkey
Property consultancy has always been a primary need all around the globe, especially for those coming from other countries. Not only finding the right property for your need, but also issues such as looking into the up to date pricing, (although Turkish version is always valid according to civil courts) signing a bilingual lease agreement, taking the right consultancy services for your rent renewal, even finding daily help for simple things such as cleaning or renewing your lock can be solved through the humble property consultant that you will hire.
What a Property Consultant Do?
A property consultant’s job is not to take you to a tour in the city for viewings of every single option in the market. On the contrary, after a brief description to your demand, your consultant should be able to arrange you a short list of options and save your time and effort.
Giving specific details in regard to your demand to your consultant is essential. You might be looking for a unit with private security, a normal apartment or residence in a tower or within a residential compound. I can be furnished or not; or only with white goods. All such details determine the end result of your research and save you time, money and effort.
How Much Will I Pay to the Property Consultant?
Maximum agency fee that you will need to pay to your property consultant is 12% of the annual rent amount for leasing and 3% for sales. Of course, these amounts are open to negotiation depending on the market conditions. Any commercial need’s consultancy would be subject to a formal invoice, which will result with an additional 18% VAT of the agency fee.
Whatever the final fee you may agree on with your property consultant would be, always keep in mind that your consultant will make you save time and money as long as your dialogue is result-oriented.
