Many situations can affect the duration. For example, the fact that the real estate is key-ready or is under construction has a significant effect on the duration. If it is key-ready, you complete the process within 5 to 7 days.

Then, you obtain a tax number. It is required for financial transactions. We open a bank account on your behalf to make your payments. It can be used later for automatic bill payments.

Bodrum White ® is an expert in buying property in Bodrum and citizenship by investment. We are with you at every stage of the process. So you can get all the benefits of buying property in Bodrum.

Applying for Turkish Citizenship is not a complicated process if you work with professional real estate agents. The citizenship program in Turkey brings a good profit with a high return on investment. You can feel the peaceful atmosphere of the country as a citizen. The cost of living is low when compared to European countries. Turkey offers a luxurious lifestyle at reasonable prices. It makes you feel privileged.

Also, a Turkish passport has lots of advantages. For example, you can have dual citizenship. It provides full medical rights and free education. You have visa-free access to 111 countries. You can see more advantages from the Benefits of a Turkish Passport.

If you cannot afford the program, you can apply for a residence permit. You buy a home, and then you get a permit for two years. It can be renewed at the end of every two years. You can apply for citizenship after staying in Turkey for five years with a residence permit.

Choose an Established Real Estate Company

We always recommend working with a professional real estate agency. It is crucial because you may encounter scam attempts.

For example, the house shown to you may differ from the house you purchased. You may overpay. You find out later that the condition of the house you bought is not good. There are so many unfortunates like these.

Let’s say you find a good property. But, if you make mistakes in official procedures, you will have to start all over again. At that time, the seller can refuse or change the price.

You should also work with a legally established company. Everyone can sell property, such as taxi drivers, receptionists, waiters, or travel agents. They have generally a brother, friend, or uncle who builds or sells real estate. They work for them on a commission basis. They are not an established agency. These sellers have no interest in protecting the rights of buyers.

So, we know that mutual trust and healthy communication are important. Our expert team keeps you informed at every step of the process.

We also help you after the process is over. Our customers have the privilege of benefiting from our Before and After-Sales Services. We are with you from getting utility subscriptions to decorating your home.
