Frequently asked questions

What are the building codes?

At the local building authority you can clarify in which building zone the desired property is located, which building regulations apply, whether an extension would be possible and whether a larger building project is planned in the vicinity. Our sales team has many years of experience and will be happy to assist you with the clarifications.

What purchase price is realistic for me?

A good budget planning is the basis for the real estate purchase. The possible amount is usually determined in cooperation with the bank.

Do I need financial reserves?

To be prepared for negative surprises, you should build up reserves. Sooner or later, a property will incur maintenance and repair costs. It makes sense to measure the reserves on the basis of the imputed interest rate of 5 percent.

Which mortgage should I choose?

The long-term fixed-rate mortgage offers a certain degree of financial security, but it can also pose major risks if life circumstances change in the short term. Early termination could be followed by expensive prepayment penalties. A detailed discussion with a financial advisor is recommended.

Do you have to pay property tax?

The tax rate is used to calculate the property tax, which is proportional to the property. The property tax is levied at annual intervals for the entire year. The amount varies from municipality to municipality, but is usually between 0.2% and 1.8%. Some cantons (e.g. Zurich) do not charge property taxes.

How is a property taxed?

Wealth tax and imputed rental value

How much equity do I need to bring with me?

At least 20 percent of the property costs must be financed with equity, of which 10 percent must consist of "real" equity, i.e. not from the 2nd pillar. A mortgage can be taken out for the remaining 80 percent. However, the higher the equity ratio, the lower the interest burden and the better the affordability.

How to calculate the portability?

A maximum of one third of the income may be made up of the interest costs, the amortization of the 2nd mortgage and the maintenance costs combined. An imputed interest rate of 5 percent is used to calculate the interest costs. Possible interest rate increases are thus taken into account in the calculation of long-term affordability.

What is the tax rate of the municipality?

There are massive differences and ultimately can have an impact on the attractiveness of a property. In low-tax communities, sales prices are often higher, which somewhat offsets the differences in purchase financing.
