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

View Post
It is all depending on personal circumstances.

If he's a low salary employee, let's say 70,000 and his rent in Ch would be 2000chf he would net around 4688 per month minus rent that's 2688.

If his rent in Germany is 500EUR and his groceries also a bit lower you can see he can quickly save from rent around 15,000-18,000 chf.

The higher your salary becomes, the more this doesn't work in your favour. Not to mention the hassle of traffic and commute.

But I can definitely see why someone would do it, especially if he has his own house there (0 rent) or lives with his parents etc
Let's assume a +100K salary, but not much. Regarding the buying, are mortgage conditions in Germany better than those of Switzerland?
