Again the first two were OK but didn't tick enough boxes to be contenders. I was beginning to think
Finding the perfect house within our budget was not going to happen. Then we went to see the last house. We hadn't even got through the garden gate but knew this was the house for us, it has everything we could have hoped for and more. A large mature established garden
swimming pool, 4 bedrooms, and mountain views to die for, the villa is surrounded by farmland, one Side is an expansive orchard, to the other side is open fields for grazing cattle.
And yet it is only a 10 minutes walk into the centre of uzumlu village. It was over our intended budget, but we desperately wanted that house. So we put in a sensible offer, and after a tense 16 hour wait got the news that our offer had been accepted. I would just like to thank all on this site who have contributed advice on buying turkish property and other subjects relating to turkish living.
We now look forward to spending our retirement living in turkey.
Best regards.
russ/lynda.
congratulations and enjoy

how much did you buy the house for if you don't mind me asking?

Re: new house new life.

There are so many horror stories about Turkish estate agents (emlaks) but when a sale goes smoothly and the agent does his job well, then these stories rarely make the news.Therefore I would like to take this opportunity to thank the agents involved in the purchase of our new home in uzumlu. Ocean wide properties based in fethiye were our agents. The owner sulyman, his colleagues sarah and Emre were brilliant all the way through the sale. Not only did they complete the house sale but they helped us set up bank accounts, they sorted out the utility bills and helped us set up direct debits.they arranged for a translator and accompanied us to the tapu office. Also thanks to the previous owners William and Sandra who took the time to show us how everything in the house worked.A big thanks to all involved.

Re: new house new life.

We were the same. I took two months off work, rented a place roughly where we wanted to live. We looked at a lot lot of places. We looked at two places in turkbuku, really nice properties, you think I have arrived, but no paperwork, reassured not an issue by the owner. my wife's cousins, husband was also looking for a property in the same area. He said don't touch. No Iskan. He is a property developer in Istanbul. But it was so cheap!!!!! And now you know why.
No Tapu, No Iskan, don't touch. We bought our place in Torba last year. All paperwork in place, nothing owed to the state. I hopefully get there in three weeks time. Enjoy your home. enjoy Turkey and the people.
