Questions about selling

My team and I will be happy to help you.

Selling investment property: what you should know

An investment property is a property that is intended to generate a positive return. The focus is on generating income. As the owner of the property, you generate this income by renting out the property. You do not use or occupy the property yourself, but rent it out to third parties.

A return is only generated if the annual rental income is higher than the expenses for the property. Current expenses include, for example, renovation costs, management costs and interest on any mortgage. The purchase price of the property as well as the ancillary purchase costs are to be recorded as non-recurring costs. The aim of an income property is to pay the mortgage interest and other running costs through the income from renting and then to generate surpluses or a profit. An income property can thus be used for capital appreciation or as passive income.

Selling an investment property: Price determination

To determine a realistic selling price for your income property, you should have a market value appraisal performed. Different valuation methods can be used for a market value estimate. Since the yield is usually the most important factor for the buyer of an investment property, the capitalized earnings value method is usually used to determine the value.

For more on real estate appraisal and the different methods, see the real estate appraisal blog article.

Taxes and fees when you sell an income property

When you sell your income property, you may incur the following taxes and fees:

  • Notary and land registry fees for income properties: regulated by canton, usually borne equally by buyer and seller.
  • Real estate transfer tax for investment properties: the amount or existence of this tax depends on the canton; it is levied on the sale.
  • Real estate profit tax for investment properties: depends on the holding period of the investment property as well as the amount of the realized profit.
