When I started looking at apartments in Istanbul, I was really surprised by all the choices that I had. I knew that there were several places that had apartments in Istanbul for sale, but I had no idea there were as many as there are. I found this out by visiting a local real estate website that has listings for all kinds of properties, from villad and apartments to pieces of land and other commercial properties. I was only interested in the apartments, and it was easy to search only for the ones that were within my price range at the time.
I found one that is not too far from a shopping mall and a lot of restaurants as well as the subway and other places that I knew I would use or frequent on a regular basis. I also liked all the amenities that are included in the apartment that I decided to get. The amenities inside the apartment are really nice, but I liked the social ones as well. There are several swimming pools, all located indoors, and there is a Turkish bath and sauna too. There is even a basketball court and tennis court along with a fitness center.
The apartment itself is gorgeous. I knew this even before going to look in person because of all the pictures I was able to look at on the website. I knew it was where I wanted to be, especially at the price it was being offered at. I even had two different payment options. I was able to either pay 20 percent of the total cost up front, and then do 48 months of equal payments. Alternatively, I could get a 12 percent discount if I just paid for it all upfront in cash. It was easy to decided to do that, because it is significant savings!
