The question is either directly between investors who have dealt with these companies before and who have experience in the field of real estate companies or indirectly through asking via social media and websites that explain the work of each company and the conditions necessary to work with it, and then communicate with this company directly without a real estate broker between the two parties. The communication between the company and the investor is done by visiting the company.
This stage takes place after communicating with the real estate company, which takes the required specifications in the apartment for the investor, such as the location of the apartment, its view, its area, and the features in it.
At this stage, the real estate company, after taking the required specifications from the investor, displays the apartments available for sale in the Sisli area, which contain the specifications required from the investor, and these apartments are presented to him electronically via photos or videos.
Here the investor visits the apartments that were selected by the real estate company. This allows him to examine the apartment well before buying it and see its features on the ground and its defects that some companies may not show in an attempt to deceive the buyer, especially if he is a foreigner or does not have experience in buying apartments in this area.
At this stage, the investor chooses one of the apartments that has been recommended by the real estate company and after visiting it on the ground and seeing its specifications, choosing the appropriate apartment, and consulting with the family, the investor informs the company of the apartment he wants to buy, and then the purchase process begins officially.
The buyer concludes a purchase contract between him and the owner of the property through the real estate company, which sets specific terms of the contract through which the parties are bound by these terms and decisions set in the text of the contract, and then a small amount of the price of the apartment is estimated in percentage and called the deposit, which is evidence of the confirmation of the purchase.
The buyer should not sign the contract before carefully reading and studying its terms, because signing the contract means never breaching it.
At this stage, the ownership of the apartment is transferred from the old owner to the new owner. This is done by extracting the title deed papers of the apartment, which is accompanied by handing over the keys to the apartment after paying the full amount agreed upon between the two parties.
The property transfer tax that is paid in government departments for real estate taxes is also paid in addition to some additional fees by the buyer related to the purchase process, accompanied by the payment of annual taxes for owning a property or value-added tax, and the tax for opening water and electricity meters, which is paid once in a lifetime.
