Frequently asked questions
Buying Swiss Real Estate as a Swiss Citizen
Swiss citizens – whether residing in Switzerland or abroad – are generally entitled to purchase a residential property for rental. In the case of Swiss citizens residing abroad, the final decision as to whether a particular property can be purchased for rental is subject to the cantonal authorities.
Purchase of Swiss real estate as a non-Swiss citizen
If you are a foreign national residing in Switzerland, your center of life (residence) is in Switzerland, and you have a valid C or B permit, the purchase of a property for rental is not excluded.
The purchase process usually proceeds as follows:
- Evaluation of the available equity
- Search for suitable property
- Due diligence of the property
- Contract negotiation
- Obtaining a mortgage
- Conclusion of contract
- Transfer of ownership
For more information on the process, please see below.
Swiss residential real estate is a sought-after investment and is suitable as a medium to long-term investment. Unlike other asset classes, the Swiss real estate market is relatively stable.
For more information, please see below.
The most important aspects of selling a property are:
- Determination of the selling price
- Compilation of a sales documentation
- Developing the market image and advertising the property
- Viewing the property with prospective buyers
- Negotiation with the buyers & drawing up of the sales contract
- Conclusion of the contract with notarization and entry in the land register
You can find the whole process below.
A professional partner takes on time-consuming work and has the appropriate know-how and network. An independent real estate sale, on the other hand, can be more cost-effective.
You can find all the advantages and disadvantages of selling with a professional partner here.
A realistic sales value can be evaluated with a market value estimate. Usually, the capitalized earnings value method is used.
Crowdhouse applies three methods for the valuation of real estate:
- the capitalization rate method (determination of the income value by means of the capitalization rate)
- the net asset value (consisting of the land value and the current market value of the building)
- the DCF approach (determination of value based on the discounted free cash flow at the time of valuation)
The following taxes and fees apply when selling a property:
- Notary and land registry fees: These are usually borne equally by the buyer and the seller. They are regulated by cantonal law.
- Property transfer tax: These are levied on the sale. The amount and existence of these taxes depend on the canton.
- Real estate gains tax: This depends on the amount of the realized gain and the holding period of the property.
Crowdhouse - the marketplace for investment properties
Crowdhouse started in 2015 as a real estate crowdinvesting provider and has quickly established real estate co-ownership as an investment alternative in the Swiss real estate market. Over the past years, the company has evolved on various levels. Today, Crowdhouse is the largest and most significant Swiss transaction platform for income properties and offers digital solutions along the entire value chain.
Buy and sell investment properties
What originally started as a co-ownership platform is now a fully comprehensive marketplace for income properties. On crowdhouse.com/switzerland you can easily buy multi-family homes, invest in real estate as well as sell income properties. With our free online valuation for multi-family houses and our professional property management, we also offer you additional services for your investment property.
Investment properties and everything that goes with it
We regularly publish up-to-date, informative and entertaining articles on the subject of income-producing real estate. For example, you can find out in our media center how to calculate gross yields, determine any real estate taxes such as real estate tax or property transfer tax, what to look out for in a real estate valuation or what the new money market mortgage SARON stands for.
