An overview of the Swiss property market
Is the Swiss property market a good investment? How easy is it to find property? These are all questions which you, as a potential buyer, must be asking yourself before starting your property hunt.
How to find a house in Switzerland
Switzerland has a housing shortage, so be aware it might take some time to find your dream property and start your search before moving. You might want to rent in the location that interests you before considering buying.
How to buy property in Switzerland
Buying property in Switzerland is quite simple and straightforward compared to other European countries. Once you have found a property, the acquisition process can begin.
Financing your Swiss property
Mortgages in Switzerland are mainly provided by the banking sector, although pension funds and state entities can also give them out. Mortgages can easily be obtained by foreigners provided you meet the basic criteria.
What your property will cost you
Financing the original purchase of your property is not the only expense that you will be confronted with; day-to-day running costs can also be a burden. Taxes and utilities must both be paid regularly, and can be quite expensive at times.
