Re: Is it preferable to buy a house instead of renting one, even if you're not sure y

you can buy if the mortgage rate + 6% is less than what you can rent the house for.
What's the 6% for?

Anyway that's a very pessimistic equation, you'd never buy anything in Switzerland deciding like that. The yields are just too low. Currently maybe 4-5%, but also historically, judging from rent and price indexes, they weren't much better, yet the mortgage rates were a lot higher in the past.
