Re: House Hunting

We used PPS Bodrum (Carol) to sell our Gundogan house some years ago without issue and we used Albatross (Murat) and Umut (opposite Kavakli in Yalikavak if still there) both worked hard but in the end I had a cash buyer contact me direct, he believed his cash offers were being cut by a 3rd agent before being forwarded to me, we never received a similar offer from the agent so there may well be something in that, no names as i have little proof other than the buyer paying a lot more than any offers receive via this agent. Good luck !

Re: House Hunting

I have a house in the area and I'd be reluctant to recommend any agent

There's lots of property for sale but finding out a realistic price is almost impossible. You can be sure that a foreigner will always pay more , and sometimes substantially more,than a Turk.

It would be interesting to see 2 people set up a 'sting' operation. One posing as seller and one as buyer to see if the agreed prices differ

Try looking for a private seller on the sahibinden website.

Re: House Hunting

You can't beat driving round and looking for for sale 'satılık' signs, also if you like the look of a site, then ask the gatekeeper if there are any properties for sale. We did this for 5 solid weeks.

Re: House Hunting

We used Hayati at Myndos Emlak in Gumbet to sell both of our houses and the buyers were told the exact price we wanted both times as we were there when it was discussed. He went above and beyond to help and he speaks English/Turkish. He has properties in all areas of the penninsular, worth a look.
