Re: Importing prebuild houses worth it in Switzerland?

View Post
Since labourcost are so high in Switzerland i thought of importing a prebuild house "fertighouse" from austria/germany/italy and place it on a plot for land half an hour or more away from Zürich to save some money.

Would you save any money importing a prebuild house from across the boarder?

I have reservation on part of a large project build by a big architect between zug and zürich for 180m2 living space and 280m2 land space for 1.8million chf. Think it's alot and thought creative alternatives might save alot of money.

Especially since it seems to be the land space that has the biggest value near Zürich. So maybe get more land for the money and cheaper house.

Thanks in advance.

It's doable because lots of people did it and certainly you can save money on the house. Don't expect it to be straightforward, you need to invest time and energy in the project.

Find a company who did it. Ideally not from Switzerland but with experience in Switzerland. For starters you can go to Stuttgart or even closer to Villingen-Schwenningen to visit the two prefab showrooms there when the restrictions are lifted. Talk to the companies there.

Another important aspect is the land you are going to buy. Make sure that the land isn't tied by a certain project, there are a lot of them in Switzerland Also check what you can build on that land.
