Buying/Renting a House in Germany while Working in Switzerland: Worth it?

Hi,
A friend has bought a house just over the border in Germany because it's way cheaper and takes the train daily to his work in Switzerland.

However, I was thinking, although the house prices may be better, isn't it offset by the much higher German taxes? Is there a "catch" here? Am I missing something or it's better even taking the (45%?) tax into account?

Thanks
