I am always surprised when I look at real estate prices in the Valaisan and Vaudois Alps. You can find places for very cheap (by Swiss standards). Sure, in the big-name ski stations (e.g., Verbier, Zermatt) real estate prices are comparable to prices in big Swiss cities, but once you look at more minor stations you can find a lot of cheap places (e.g, many 1 bedrooms in the 200k range). Understanding the nuances of Swiss real estate is certainly not my forté so maybe this forum can illuminate me…
- Shouldn’t Lex Weber make prices go up in ski towns as supply will be limited to current inventory?
- Why are prices in Berner Oberland mountain towns significantly higher than in similar places in Valais?
- Why do more people not buy and rent out their secondary home for when they are not using it?
- Are there some costs related to owning a flat in a ski village that are not obvious?
- Is it complicated for one to buy an existing flat/villa for use as a secondary residence in a commune where Lex Weber applies?
