Re: House buying

I'm having a hard time believing this as my experience is that the rent vs. buy market in Switzerland is more or less in par. Are you really comparing apples with apples here? I.e. same area, same size etc. Are you taking all the "Nebenkosten" into consideration?

It looks like it will cost about CHF3000 per month to rent the sort of house we want, but only about 1500 per month to buy one and pay it off (based on CHF550k house, with a 20% deposit), given the relatively low interest rates.
