2Base Estate Agency

Welcome to this

2nd edition

Dear reader,

Welcome to this 2nd edition

of our online magazine.

We are very pleased with the

positive reception that our first

magazine got and hope you

will enjoy this first magazine of

2018 just as much.

As always we have collected the

best stories and information

from our blog as well as social

medias and added beautiful

properties and other relevant

information for those of your

following the property

market in Turkey.

Also we have added a new

section to the magazine that we

call "Recommended by 2Base".

Here we gathered a list of

places in and around Alanya

that we believe are worth

visiting.

We have done so without

looking if the place is big, small,

well-known, unknown,

expensive, cheap,

Turkish, international or is

found at page 1, 2 or nowhere

in the tourist brochures.

Only criteria is that at least one

staff here at 2Base has approved

the place.

Our hope is that the list can be an

inspiration for you to try out new

places and have even more good

experiences here in Alanya.

Should you know of a place that

deserves to be on the list we are

more than happy to hear from

you.

What the crystal ball has to say

about the coming year no one

knows and we can only guess.

What we do know is that 2Base

is celebrating our 15th year as

estate agent in Alanya.

At our place the coffee is always

hot and everyone is welcome for

a chat about whatever is on your

mind.

Before you dive into the magazine

and start reading we want to take

the chance to wish you all a

happy new year and we hope to

see you all very soon in Alanya.

On behalf of everyone here at

2Base.

Fenerbahce from Istanbul.

Unfortunately Fenerbahce ended up leaving Alanya with all

3 points even though Alanyaspors biggest supporter was on

the stands to cheer for the local heroes.

Recycling in Alanya

Alanya is among the best municipalities in

Turkey in terms of recycling waste.

Recycling collection points were expanded in

recent years and now there are a total of 10,041

recycling and waste collection points.

While 15 thousand tons of packaging waste was

collected in 2015, this figure was 26 thousand

tons in 2016.

According to mayor of Alanya Mr. Yücel the

efforts will continue and that clean, local

environment in Alanya is on the top of the

agenda.

Biggest social area project in Alanya.

The park location is in Büyükhasbahçe district,

near Seyir Terası north side of Alanya. The project

has two side, one side is for picnic areas and

second side has cafeteria, playground, local

shops, walking platform with watching corners

and amfiteatr for 400 people. The park will be

50.000 m2.

The park will have amazing Alanya view. Not far

from city center and it will be fully designed park

with many facilities. The project still under

construction and hopefully this year it will be

ready.

Our monthly inspection visits are in process

and Gülüzar is getting ready for visits of this

month.

The rain season has started so apartment visits

are very important.

Did you

know that..

Saint Nicholas, known as Santa Claus all

over the world, was born in Patara, an

important Lycian town on the

Mediterranean coast of Turkey.

He was called a Santa Claus because he

was a priest known for his charity.

We hope that this will end the discussion

once and for all: Santa is from Turkey, not

Finland, Greenland or any other land.

We have just completed an unusual title deed

transaction at the land registry office in

Alanya.

Due to seller being a total of 10 people and

several of them have had namechanges since

the initial deeds were issued and since one of

the buyers

was a foreigner the paper work was a bit

more

complicated and comprehensive that usual.

A title deed transaction can normally be

completed in a maximum of 3 or 4 days - and

at times even faster - this time it took at

couple of weeks.

In the end a total of 67 signatures at the land

registry office in Alanya was requried.

Sunset in Alanya can be

more than beautiful.

Luckily the 10 sellers were all represented by

just one person via power of attornies.

In case they had all been presents to sign for

themselves in person, the required number of

signatures would have been approximately

166

Obtaining deed got even faster + new

payment procedures for electricity

To obtain the title deed for your Turkish

holiday home is a swift and pretty

straightforward procedure.

Not that we recommend anyone trying to do this

themselves, but for those of us doing this on a

daily basis the rules, regulations and procedures

are fairly easy to deal with.

And now a new update to the Turkish laws has

made it even simpler.

As you can see on the picture it was a front page

story in the local press.

Previously any building needed to be approved for

sale to foreigners by the Turkish military.

This to prevent foreigners buying property in zones

of military interest, land zones or other restricted

areas where foreigners can not buy a property.

In Alanya for example this has always been a pro

forma process, since there are no such restricted

areas.

Most building already had the approval but sometimes

a property was sold in a building that never

got this military approval and so we had to apply

for this which would delay the entire title deed

process for several weeks.

any building in the area.

Be aware of new procedures for paying electricity

And now what we have your attention please

be aware of a minor but important change that

electricity company CLK Akdeniz has

implemented.

Until now your electric meter had a subscription

number.

Unfortunately this number was only unique to the

lcoal area of your house, so within a short distance

two electric meters could hold the same subscription

number.

Therefor CLK Akdeniz has added a new number

to all electric meters, which is a kind of a account

number.

Going forward this account number will be used to

identify your electric meter subscription.

The new account number is printed on your

electric invoice that you receive every month.

For those of you who use their Turkish bank for

automatic payment of electricity it is a good idea

to check if your bank is still paying the monthly bill

after this update.

Good news is that all such restrictions has been

removed from the Alanya area and the military

permission is no longer needed for foreigners in

For those of you who let 2Base take care of the

bills, we of course have it all under control

Certified agents are not

always competent

Lets be honest!

To establish a real estate agency in Alanya

does not require a lot. Neither any higher

education nor special skills or requirements

are needed.

Only demand that you must fulfill is to

complete an evening training course, which

takes no more than a couple of weeks.

So it is far from a comprehensive education

to teach you about important subjects such

as buying contracts, financial security of the

payment or guidelines for moral and ethics as

an estate agent.

Not that long ago we actually had an

interesting experience where the responsible

person for issuing licenses for estate agents in

Alanya proudly told us about all the good he

had done for the sector in Alanya which was

making it even easier to get the permission to

open a real estate agency and get the needed

license.

In our opinion he should have spend his time

and influence by securing and highering the

quality of the sector but it shows how

unfortunate the entire sector and agents are

thinking - which is thinking of themselves and

not of you as a customer.

This has created an overflow of authorized

estate agents in Alanya but a lack of those

who are competent and qualified.

At 2Base we believe that it pays of to be a bit

different and we always think of the customer

before thinking of ourselves.

We believe this will end up securing us more

sales and more customers.

28


Turkeyblog.2base.com

But how do you choose the right estate agent

in Alanya when not even a real estate

certificate will guarantee you a qualified and

competent agent?

We suggest that you take a look at some of the

following factors.

Company or private person

Is the estate agent a part of a company with an

office and colleges, or is the person working

more as a private person?

We recommend you to only use agents that are

a part of a company with access to an office (as

in his own office and not just an office that he

"borrows" from a friend just for the occasion)

and by that also an organization that can assist,

help and support the estate agent during the

entire process.

References

Does the estate agent and his company have

good references and do you know others who

did also use this agent and his company?

Communication

If English is not your mother tongue or you do

not fell completely comfortable communicating

in English you should use an agent that speaks

your mother tongue.

Information

Do you automatically receive the information

that you need or are you only informed when

asking?

Make sure that your estate agent is informing

you from A to Z and that you dont have to ask

for everything all the time.

Gut feeling

Take a deep breath, use your common sense

and ask yourself the question: What does my

gut feeling tell me about the agent and would

i trust this person if we where to do business

in my home country?

We are often contacted by property buyers

who have been offered properties from waiters,

jewelers or persons who themselves

think they are competent estate agents.

Usually none of them are and the buyer feels

this and contacts us so that a professional

company can be involved in the trade.

Unfortunately we are sometimes also contacted

by those who did not contact us from

the beginning and therefor ended up in problems

and now wants our help to solve their

problems.

When it comes to choosing an estate agent in

Alanya you must be very critical and only deal

with agents that you absolutely trust and who

besides talking can also put actions behind

their words.

Unfortunately it is not enough that the

agent is authorized and holds a real estate

license.

You must also make sure that the person is

competent.

When that person is found the way to your

dream property has become a lot easier...

Here are a couple of examples on information

that you should always get in written and without

having ask.

- Sales presentation of the property.

- Financial overview of the property including

an overview showing all expenses and trade

costs.

- Overview that shows how the trade will progress

and what the time line is.

- Buyers guide that will inform you about all

general aspects of buying a property in Turkey.

Vocabulary for property in Turkey

Even the process is more or less the same,

purchasing a property in Turkey is of course

different then doing so in your home country.

One of the biggest differences are actually the

language since Turkish can be a bit hard to

understand for most.

Still a lot of Turkish words are surviving without

translation when the topic is property in Turkey

which can make if hard to understand exactly

what is going on and what the exact meaning is.

This is why we have made this vocabulary for

property in Turkey that covers the Turkish words

that are often used without being translated.

Kapıcı // Caretaker

Görevli // Also caretaker but a bit more polite

Yönetici // Administrator

Ferdi iskan // Habitation certificate and permission

to use the apartment

Ön iskan // Approval of the building permission

and that all authorities involved have approved

the building.

Sigorta // Insurance

Belediye // Municipality

Tapu // Title deed

Tapu ofisi // Land registry office

Ipotek // Mortgage

Aidat // Owners union fee

Uydu // Satellite dish

Vergi dairesi // Tax office

Kara defteri // Decision book and protocol book

Oy // Vote

Vekalet // Power of attorney

Iki tane soğuk Efes, lütfen // Two cold Efes beer,

please. The perfect way to celebrate a successful

property investment.

Are some words missing from the list?

Then send us a message and we will add it

immediately..

This is how you find Alanyas

biggest shops!

Shopping is and will always be very popular

way of spending time.

If not for you then at least for someone you

know really well :-)

So we have made a quick guide to the biggest

shops and shopping centers in Alanya.

There are actually a lot more than you think.

We have also included links to Google Maps,

so that you can start navigating to your new

favorite shop in just a single click.

Don`t forget that Google Maps allows you to

download an area allowing you to view the

map and navigate without having access to the

Internet.

This can be done via the Google Maps

application on your phone.

But lets get started with the list.

Alanyum

Shoppingcenter in Cikcilli in two floors with a

variety of shops and a supermarket.

Also cinema and several fast food restaurant.

Kipa

The biggest supermarket in town and located

in Cikcilli.

82 Sali Pazar

Everything for your kitchen and house.

It is cheap and mostly plastic.

Located next to Kipa in Cikcilli.

Koctas

Turkish version of Ikea.

Located at the 35m road in Oba.

Tekzen

Like Koctas but smaller and with cheaper

selection.

Next to Kipa.

Metro

Like you know it but also open for

private persons.

Located in Oba.

A good place for buying fresh fish, meat and

foreign groceries. Also sell electronics.

Vatan Computer

All you need in electronics.

35m street

At the 35m road from Kipa and all the way to

Tosmur there are many difference furniture

stores.

In the center of Alanya from the post office

This is in general a good area for shopping

and sipping coffee.

Megamall Konakli

Shopping center with a broad variety of shops

and cafes.

Nova Mall Manavgat

One hour drive away in Manavgat.

Plenty of shops and a place where you can

easily spend several hours.

All there is left to say is "shop `till you drop"

shopping bags by yourself, then you did not

shop enough!

4 great activities for kids on a

rainy day in Alanya

Even that most advertisement about

Alanya claims the opposite the sun

does actually not shine all the time.

Yes, we know.

It might come as a shocking surprise but at

times we do get both rainy, grey, stormy and

windy days in Alanya.

Number 2 - Eat some pop corn

There are several cinemas in Alanya showing

both foreign and Turkish movies. So on a rainy

day catching a movie is definitely a great idea.

Just be aware that some movies are dubbed,

while others run in original language with

Turkish subtitles.

For a list of cinemas and what is showing

check out this link: www.orneksinemalari.com

The big question is what to do when the sun

decides to take a break.

Especially kids can be very inpatient and

hard to entertain when outdoor activities

are limited.

We have therefor made a list of 4 great

activities for kids on a rainy day in Alanya.

Number 1 - Play the flipper machine

All kids loves game lands and luckily one is to

be found in the shopping center

"ALANYUM" easy accesible on the 35 meter

road in Cikcilli. The 3 storey shopping center

has a foot court and gameland on the

topfloor. Here you will find all kinds of

arcade games, flipper

machines, air hockey and other entertaining

games and activities for kids of all ages.

Number 3 - Be cultural

Admitted, this one might not be exactly what

your kids would love to do. So we recommend

making them accept it by promising pizza and

cola afterwards.Because for this third idea we

want you to visit the archaeological museum

of Alanya, which is situated close to the waterpark

in the city center at the Damlatas Cave

area.This museum has a small but fine indoor

collection that is worth a visit.

Number 4 - road rage

Just out of the city on the Kestel-side of the

Dim River you will find an indoor go-cart circuit.

This is great fun for the older part of the

family.Just remember to drive carefully and

take care of each other. May the best driver

win

So a rainy day in Alanya does not have to mean

less fun - just a little less sun.

Best places for having your

coffee in Alanya

Even that Turkey is a real "tea-drinkers"

Especially the younger generations has accepted

coffee, and cafe-visits with friends are getting

increasingly popular.

This is no different in Alanya where several of

the bigger European coffee chains has established

themselves side by side with the local coffee

shops.

We therefor want to provide you with this miniguide

to the best places for having your coffee in

Alanya.

Starbucks at the Atatürk statue

on the main street

We of course have to start with Starbucks, who

has several coffee shops in Alanya.

The very first opened is situated close to the

Atatürk statue on the main street, in an area

where several coffee shops and cafes are found

side by side.

Besides the usual selection in freshly brewed

coffee drinks also cakes and sandwiches are

served - just as we know it from other Starbucks

Coffee shops around the word.

May we recommend the simple, black and

always freshly brewed filter coffee...

Robert's Coffee at Damlatas/ Cleopatra beach

With beautiful and nice decor this is one of the

absolute top cafes in Alanya.

If you enjoy sitting enjoying life at a cafe, a visit

to Robert's Coffe at Damlatas is a must when

visiting Alanya.

Also food, snacks and cakes are served, so

Robert's Coffee is always worth a visit, that can

easily be combined with beaching or a walk in

the nearby park and recreational area.

Shakespeare Bistro at the Atatürk statue at

the main street/ eastern beach

Another popular cafe is Shakespeare Coffee &

Bistro, where also music are played during

weekends.

Sit at the street side and watch daily life as it

happens, or relax inside in the cozy and

appealing cafe area.

And not to forget: The pizza at Shakespeare in

Alanya is really, really good and the place is also

open for evening dinner.

Juice and Friends

Located behind Starbucks at the Atatürk statue

Juice and Friends is tugged nicely away from the

noisy main street. Modern contemporary interior

and menu that also offers various and freshly

made juices.

The place might not be easy to find but it is surely

a great place for both local and foreigners.

Tip

A lot of restaurants do not serve real coffee,

but instead powder coffee/ instant coffee.

Do therefor always remember to ask the

waiter how the coffee in the restaurant is

made, to avoid the disappointment of having

a instant coffee served after a nice meal.

Instead go to one of real coffee places and

get a freshly brewed coffee there...

In Turkey coffee will never be as popular as tea.

But one thing is for sure. A freshly brewed cup

of your favorite coffee drink is always to find in

Alanya.

OUR BLOG

Who celebrates christmas in Alanya?

The obvious answer to the question is

"everyone that lives here does"...

For most people Christmas is more of an event

than a religious thing meaning that it is - but of

course in its own way - celebrated by everyone

even in a Muslim country like Turkey.

Also no shop in Turkey is blind to the

commercial aspect of Christmas so currently all

shopping is accompanied by Christmas

decorations and jingle bells.

Some even claim that Santa actually comes from

Turkey and not the North pole, Finland, Greenland

or anywhere else.

With that said celebrating Christmas in Alanya

is of course very different than celebrating it

at home. The special Christmas mood that you

find in your home country can not be replicated

anywhere, no matter how hard you try.

People who choose to travel to Alanya during the

holidays do so because they want to get away

from all the Christmas activities at home, so they

surely do not mind.

And all of us living permanently here in Alanya do

not have same expectations to Christmas as we

would normally have.

Instead we make Christmas our own way and try

to mix some of the traditions we know from home

with the opportunities that are available in Alanya.

Most of the Christmas food you can actually cook

more or less like you would do it at home. Some

ingredients might not exactly be the same, but it

is more or less possible to cook at full Christmas

meal just like the one your mother would have

cooked for you.

Unless you want to drive to the mountains and

cut down a tree, you might have to settle for a

plastic one and you for sure wont get any snow.

It might get cold, windy and rainy but snow is

definitely never going to happen in Alanya.

Plenty of restaurants offer Christmas dinners and

entertainment, but we recommend staying at

home since we believe that Christmas is best

celebrated at home.

In the end it is all about what works for you but

our best recommendation is to take the best of

your home Christmas, adjust it to living abroad

and then spice it up with what Alanya has to offer.

One of our favorite traditions is to follow Santa

deliver his presents all over the world via the

googlofficial Santa Tracker
