Why buy an apartment building?

An apartment building (often referred to as a block of flats) is in great demand in Switzerland, especially as an investment. There are good reasons for this – while shares and numerous other asset classes are subject to regular market fluctuations, the market for apartment buildings is relatively stable. This market stability makes an apartment building in Switzerland an attractive investment – not only for institutional investors, but also for private investors.

In addition, an apartment building has several apartments. Compared to a single-family house or a condominium, they offer the advantage of risk diversification. If, after purchasing a house with 8 apartments, one or two apartments are vacant in the meantime, the owner still generates income.

With the current low-interest environment, it becomes even more interesting to buy a multi-family house. Rarely before could borrowed capital be obtained at such a low interest rate. This gives investors the opportunity – taking out a relatively inexpensive mortgage – to multiply your return in relation to the (equity) capital invested.

What equity is needed to buy a multifamily home?

The amount of equity needed to buy a multifamily property depends on its size and purchase price. For private investors, a reasonable investment volume starts at around CHF 2 million. Since January 2020, investment properties can be mortgaged up to a maximum of 75%, which means that the minimum equity requirement is now 25%. So if the desired apartment building has a purchase price of CHF 2 million, at least CHF 500,000 of equity is required for the purchase.

Where is it suitable to buy an apartment building (location)?

Before buying a multi-family house as an investment, the goals associated with the purchase should be clear: Are you aiming for the highest possible return and accepting any fluctuations for this? Or do you want to generate a somewhat lower, but stable, passive income? Based on the desired result, different locations are suitable for the purchase of a MFA.

On the Swiss real estate market, a basic distinction is made between A and B locations. While apartment buildings in A locations usually have a high rental stability, the yield is somewhat lower because the costs for the apartment building are usually higher. Multi-family buildings in B locations are usually somewhat less expensive, which is why they also allow for higher yields. At the same time, renting can be more difficult, which increases the risk of vacancies. When buying building land as well as when buying a multi-family house with the idea of a conversion, the utilization rate plays a major role. Depending on the condition of the property, it is also worthwhile to compare the heating systems and, if necessary, to strive for an energetic renovation. Insurance coverage for the property should also not be forgotten. 

It is therefore worth taking a closer look at the various regions of Switzerland and checking the location of the desired apartment building before buying.
