Well… AG is big. So if you drive far enough, you get cheap prices. ZG is small so anywhere in the canton you’re close to Zug right?
We are pretty set on not having a car and don’t want to spend a long time commuting, so living in a town on the Zürich-Basel line is a must. Prices are higher there. Plus (for the same reasons), we want to live at walking distance from the train station, Migros, restaurants, etc. So that’s an even smaller inventory and therefore even higher prices. We are lucky enough to live in such an apartment now and would only move to something that also fits these conditions…
We would have 0 interest in living in the places listed by @xorfish (no offense…) even if they were half the price.
Anyway, I would appreciate it if we could keep this thread dedicated to financing real estate by pledging a portfolio of stocks, the financial advantages and the risk. Not trying to be rude or anything
