The real estate market of Istanbul is in a constant development and this development does not seem to stop, at least for now. Both local and foreign investors have been more and more interested in luxury villas and apartments in the recent years. If you are considering the very same thing, here are some things to look for when buying a villa in Istanbul city.
Main features first. You may want to check the size of the rooms, windows and the floor plan of the villa for instance. It is quite necessary before you all bring your furniture to your new property in Istanbul. How many bedrooms and bathrooms you would like to have? What about the kitchen features? It is better for you to make a detailed plan depending on your special needs so that you can find your future dream villa.
Heating and cooling systems. Make sure that these systems do not have any problem or do not need any fixings so that you will not come across with any problems during winter and summer. If you do not check these systems, you may have to deal with some future expenses since the fixing of these kind of systems are quite expensive.
The location of the villa. As known, Istanbul is one of the biggest cities in the world that consists of many different areas inside of it. You should look through the areas so as to find the perfect neighborhood for your property. In this city, the villas are generally located on the districts like Buyukcekmece, Kucukcekmece, Gurpinar that are a little bit far away from the city center. However, you can find many beautiful luxury villas in central districts like Etiler as well.
Outside of the property. Does the villa that you found has a garden or not? Is it a big garden? This things may seem like not a big deal but it is highly important since if the villa has a garden you should keep in your mind that the garden needs to be maintained carefully. As an another outside feature, it is better to check the roof and its age, you would not want to have some problems in the future when the harsh conditions of the winter come. Plus, find out which way does the villa face? North or South? You may need to check the property at different times of the day before you make up on your mind about buying it.
