This mountain goat hut search is proving to be very challenging! Every decent place falls under one or other hazard zone! For example a popular town is fully covered by the following hazard warning-

Gefahrenhinweiskarte spontane rutschung (Hazard warning card for spontaneous landslides)

Thousands of people live there, do people just ignore the dangers and buy anyway and hope for the best
Well the danger is in the fall line of the steepest areas, probably nothing built there because of avalanche risk. If there are lots of old trees then it's not a regular occurrence. The Swiss are generally quite strict on where they let you build, unless it's for sale to foreigners
