Would you buy a property in the UK without knowing in advance what the actual price will be on completion ?
Probably not! ...
Just a brief glance at the wide range of media and web sites focusing on homes abroad, leaves one in no doubt that the variety and value of property available on international markets from a UK perspective is simply breathtaking.
And, completing on a property purchase and in particular, the process of currency dealing and transferring money overseas is quite easy even the first time, the exciting part is to know when to exchange your currency and for how much.
In general, when buying or selling Turkish property if the price is in turkish lira 'turk lirasi' then you probably should explore all of the options available to you concerning money exchange, especially where a few cents on the daily rate can save you many thousands of euro.
The same applies to people buying or selling high value assets such as cars or yachts.
The best advice is to get the right currency exchange rate at the beginning and plan ahead because at some stage, you will need to transfer money overseas to complete your transaction.
