The acquisition of real estate in Switzerland is restricted by law. As a rule, all foreigners, who wish to acquire Swiss residential real estate, must obtain approval prior to their purchase. Such approval is relatively difficult to obtain without professional assistance.
For foreigners, who hold a Swiss residence permit, it is however possible to purchase house or apartment for their personal use. As a rule, the Swiss authorities may grant a residence permit to a foreign national, who has invested in setting up his own business, where he will work.
 
We at SWITZERLAND-4YOU are ready to provide you with a comprehensive solution for relocating to Switzerland within a reasonable timeframe:
we can elaborate a business
  plan that will meet legal
  requirements
we can prepare the set of
  documents needed to obtain
  permanent resident status
we can also speak with the
  local authorities on your
  behalf with regard to the
  residency status for you and
  your family members in
  connection with your
  business plan
 
In addition, there are other options to acquire Swiss real estate, for instance on the name of Swiss company.
 
 
The authorities in each Swiss canton have the right to define the districts in which real estate may be eligible for the "vacation property" status. This status guarantees considerable tax benefits, and the procedures for purchasing this kind of property are simplified for foreigners.
The most liquid and popular areas among foreign investors are small villages in tourist and resort districts near Lake Geneva.
 
While commercial real estate in Switzerland can be resold at any time, holiday properties must not be offered for resale for a period of five years after purchase (and sometimes longer).
Furthermore, purchasing a vacation property does not automatically entitle the buyer to permanent resident status in Switzerland, but definitely provides additional possibilities to relocate, what is worth to discuss.
 
We at SWITZERLAND-4YOU can take care of the details of the sale or purchase of a vacation property in line with your specific needs.
We are also ready to take on maintenance and management of your property and could organize its temporary lease, to speed up the loan re-payment.
 
 
 
 
 
Commercial real estate is exempt from Switzerland's restrictions on the purchase of real estate by foreign nationals. Foreign investors may purchase as many properties as they wish of practically any size. Furthermore, they are not obligated to obtain any permission from government offices in order to do so.
Foreigners may sell their commercial real estate whenever it is convenient without any restrictions, no matter how long they have owned it.
 
On the other hand, investment in such objects like commercial and office buildings, warehouses, retail spaces, restaurants, hotels and parking space is always popular on the Swiss market and bring investors stable yields (return on investment).
 
Commercial real estate in Switzerland is attractive primarily as a reliable means of capitalizing your assets (inflation is maintained at 1.5-2.0%, while net revenue from leasing properties can reach 7-8% of invested capital).
Moreover, the maintenance, tenant management, account management and taxes are all taken care of by a management company, which usually charges about 6–8% of the lease income.
As a rule, commercial real estate in Switzerland is purchased using mortgage loans (which are also extended to foreign investors).
 
 
 
 
If you need financing for your real estate purchase in Switzerland, we can
introduce you to bankers and schedule meetings to discuss loan options.
We can also schedule meetings with a notary public and provide full
legal support for your real estate transactions.
