It is to buy your home before the developer has finished building it or even before construction has begun. In return, you can secure a brand-new home for a relatively small deposit, and you can have a word in the design and build. And buying a property off-plan in Turkey is alluring. Prices are lower, and the buyers are being charmed by the design and the layout of the project planned.
