Flat availability after the month of October?

Hi,

My husband and I will be moving to Zurich soon.

I searched for apartments on homegate.ch, and the ones we would be interested in seeing are available on September 1st or October 1st. We were planning to fly in to Zurich on September 23rd or October 1st. And, I am guessing, by the time we are there, these apartments would be gone. But, I don't see any ads (that fits our bill) that has availability later than October 1st.

Does this mean there won't be much housing options left by the time we get there? Or, is it because landlords don't post their ads until it's a month or two before their property is available?

I have read that there're moving seasons in Switzerland - that more flats are available in certain times, but the number gets smaller when it's not the moving season. And, I am wondering if we need arrive in Zurich earlier than we had planned so that we avoid getting stuck in that low availability season.

Thanks.
