“The only question with wealth is what you do with it.”
John D. Rockefeller (1839–1937)

 
Switzerland is considered an exclusively prestigious country. The fabulous ski resorts, the fresh mountain air, the pristine environment, the excellent natural conditions, and the high quality of life all contribute to Switzerland’s appeal. For these reasons, Swiss real estate is in great demand.
 


We can help you purchase vacation real estate in Switzerland


According to Swiss law, foreigners who are not permanent residents, are not permitted to freely purchase real estate. Furthermore, the law prohibits Swiss citizens from purchasing real estate in their name for a foreign national, or with the money of a foreign national. This kind of transaction is invalid and will not be recognized.
Nevertheless, there are other options to purchase 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 / holiday property” status. This status guarantees considerable tax benefits, and the procedures for purchasing this kind of property are simplified for foreigners.
Essentially, as a foreign investor, you are permitted to purchase this category of real estate if your intent is to use the property for your own personal holiday home or temporary place of residence, but not to permanently lease to a third party.
 
The most liquid and popular areas among foreign investors are small villages in tourist and resort districts near Lake Geneva.
The map shows the regions of Switzerland where vacation home may be purchased: areas that are marked red denote areas where such properties are nearly impossible to find, while light green areas present difficulties, and green areas indicate areas where it is generally much easier to buy a holiday home.
 
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 provides additional possibilities to relocate, what is worth to discuss.
 
As part of its services, MB GROUP SWITZERLAND AG can take care of the details of the sale or purchase of a vacation property in line with your specific needs.
 


You can count on MB GROUP when it comes to the purchase of luxury holiday real estate – it will make your stay in Switzerland pleasant and comfortable.
