Attention When Buying Turkey Housing For Sale Under 50k 20k 10k
WHAT TO PAY ATTENTION TO WHEN BUYING CHEAP PROPERTY IN TURKEY
In Turkey, foreign national buyers usually pay attention to the kitchen and tiles. Turkish iClassified striking, "the first thing to pay attention to is corrosion, cracks and moisture in the elements of the carrier system of the old buildings, where 10 million people in Istanbul live in apartments/houses over 17-30 years old," was said.
Turkish iClassified who reminds us that Turkey is located in the earthquake zone, pointed out that cracks in the filling walls of the building during the earthquake were not structural damage, and suggested that the citizens who will buy the house find out who did the structural design project, go down to the basement and see if there are corrosion, cracks and moisture in the elements of the carrier system.
Drawing attention to frequent earthquakes in Istanbul Turkey, advised foreigner citizens who will buy cheap homes in Istanbul to choose safe buildings.
DAMAGE MUST REMAIN AT A LEVEL THAT DOES NOT RISK LIFE SAFETY
A doctor who noted that it is more accurate to say that buildings are safe than solid Just because a building was damaged during an earthquake doesn't mean it's not safe. For example, a residential type building can get damaged during an earthquake. But it is important that this damage is not severe, that it remains at a level that can be repaired and does not risk the safety of life. We call it a controlled damage performance target. The building is safe if the controlled damage during the design earthquake provides the target level of performance, he said.
BEAM AND COLUMN DAMAGE SHOULD BE CONSIDERED
He noted that as civil engineers specializing in structural design in buildings, they can control where and what type of damage will occur. We expect damage to the beams that hit, especially the ones that we designed as ductile. In the column and bearing curtains, it is not possible to prevent damage in the part where it is connected to the foundation. But we'd like it to be limited there. We aim to avoid any column or curtain damage on the upper floors. His columns were more powerful than the beams.
DON'T WORRY ABOUT FILLING THE WALL
A doctor who said that there is no need to worry about the filling walls that are damaged after the earthquake, we saw buildings that had damaged the embankment wall. People are afraid to see cracks in the filling wall from the outside, but this is not structural damage. Unfortunately, in the recent Izmir earthquake, we saw that the filling walls of buildings that are already in a weak state in their current form were negatively affected by this when they were removed. However, in a building designed according to the regulations, with the right engineering service, the right carrier system setup, filling wall damage is secondary damage. Said not to worry about these types of damages.
IT'S NOT THAT THE HOUSE IS SAFE, IT'S THE KITCHEN, IT'S THE TILES
He noted that buyers who want to buy a house in Turkey for under 20k must pay more attention to architectural elements. The Kitchen cabinet, bathroom, ceramics of the house are more interested. Even if the house is bought from within the site, the features of the site go beyond the features of the House. But whether it is safe from earthquakes is hardly questioned, he said.
The damage testing can be performed for buildings... continued his words as follows:
Now our software and computer capabilities allow a building to be modeled in its current form and analyzed under real earthquake records. In the Turkish building earthquake regulation published in 2018, it is written in detail how to make these accounts. After determining the current characteristics of the building through field studies, we establish an analytical model and experience the earthquake that the building will be exposed to, so to speak. You can think of it as car crash tests. At the end of the analysis, we see what kind of damage can occur in which element of the carrier system and determine the level of performance of the building. Apart from simpler methods used for different purposes, this is the most reliable method used all over the world.
CONSIDERATIONS WHEN BUYING A CHEAP HOUSE IN TURKEY
Turkish iClassified who lists what should be considered when buying a home in Turkey. Each building has a structural design project. We have to ask who did the structural design project. We can contact the company that made the project and try to get to know the company from the web pages. I suggest they examine that structural design project with a civil engineer. They can examine the structure of the carrier system, which is the most important issue in earthquake safety, through the project. You also need to make some observations. Be sure to go down to the basement of the buildings. Because in basements, you can see problems such as corrosion (corrosion of iron, wear) that the elements of the bearing system are exposed to. If cracks have formed in the bearing system elements in the basement, if the column curtain Irons have been exposed, if they have been subjected to corrosion, stay away from this building. Due to corrosion, the bearing system elements have lost their properties or have been damaged. It's important to know them, to see them, was said.
