Default Advice pls on selling property in Turkey

Hello people,

Hoping someone can help us here. My husband and I, after much deliberation have decided to go gung ho to try and sell our property in Turkey. I posted about it on an earlier thread here but its basically a one bedroom apartvilla in a 5* star resort called Goldcity in Alanya, Turkey.

We sold our 3 bed semi here in Galway a couple of years back and have been renting ever since but hope to buy later this year if we could and get settled in a permanent home with our three smallies.
Selling this property would put us in a better negotiating position and free up some much needed cash.

I know Turkey is actually quite a stable place to invest and the resort is top quality and also we are very realistic about the price so hope it will work out!

We are completely clueless about how to go about it though. We toyed with this idea last year and stupidly paid some 'Advertising' money up front (250) to a company I see mentioned on this site a few times, but have not heard from them since! So we would really appreciate some direction about where to advertise and what agents to source (obviously one that has no upfront charge...)

Thanks in advance

Could I suggest you check out this site www.turkishliving.com? There are lots of properties for sale there and some estate agents recommended, and some warnings.

Hi Alana,

I'm in the same position as you re selling Goldcity property and have also paid 250 + Vat to a company that said they had good success selling properties in Turkey and Bulgaria. Likewise - great attention from them until I had paid the advertising fee and then impossible to contact them. If you'd like to contact me maybe we could share ideas / experiences with a view to getting our properties sold. I love my apartment and Goldcity complex but haven't been able to visit because my parnter is now incapacitated and unable to travel abroad.

Hi Furzy,

So we're both suckers!

I am in contact with an agent in Mahmutlar at the moment and the first viewing of our apartment for potential buyers is happening this afternoon so fingers crossed!

We just have a one-bedroomed apartvilla but it looks like we will have to take quite a loss to sell it.

I have learned alot in the process so far and I can certainly share this with you.

I don't see a facility to 'PM' someone (Private Message) - so not sure how best to contact you?
