How do I find real estate agencies?
  1. Specify, developer or agency? If only the builder, keep looking.
  2. Ask to send you scans of their company's registration documents, certificates and licenses.
  3. Make a test call to the office phone number of the company in North Cyprus (it starts with the country code + 90-392) and call the employee with whom you are communicating with the phone.
How do I choose a property?
  1. View the already constructed objects of the same builder (if there are none, look for another developer).
  2. Look at the quality of construction and finishing of previously constructed objects of the same builder to know exactly what quality awaits you.
  3. Check the presence of water and electricity meters for already constructed objects (if they do not exist, look for another developer).
  4. Evaluate the work of the management company. If the already constructed complex is managed poorly, your property will have the same history, then you need to look for another object and another developer.
  5. Get from your agency a full list of costs for the acquisition and maintenance of real estate with a signature and a seal of their company. The acquisition cost is approximately 10% of the value of the property. And there are costs for its maintenance. It is necessary to have this information before you make a purchasing decision so that these expenses do not become an unpleasantly expensive surprise for you in the near future. If these costs are hidden or silenced by you, safely change the agency at this stage of your work and look for another.
