Re: What did you compromise on? (property search)

Bought twice (and sold once) in Canton Zurich. Both times we looked for two years before finding what we wanted - detached house, small garden, south-facing, quiet road - cul-de-sac if possible, new build where we could choose tiles, fittings etc. Oh, and affordable.

Only compromise was location. We are now further from the town of Zurich than we intended...
More or less the same here for our current place. We started looking seriously around Xmas 2014, saw the plot in Spring 2105, signed in July that year and moved in mid September 2016. The only compromise was that we moved slightly further out of Fribourg and the kids had to be OK with that. Fortunately, the village has its own station and we're only a couple of minutes from the motorway.
