Re: Comparing locations - Oberglatt and Dietikon

I agree with you, but with the budget it doesn't seem like we will get a location that is equidistant from our work locations. As I said earlier, that would be the Thalwil Horten area, and we can't afford anything there.

We will continue to look, but it just feels that we need to be richer to afford the kind of house we want.
That's not a nice feeling. It leaves you with one or more of the following options:
  1. lower your standards in terms of the ideal size or quality or age of the property
  2. save more towards the cash down payment, possibly by dropping your standard of living for a while, for this express purpose
  3. earn more, possibly by renegotiating your salaries, or by starting a side-hustle to generate another income
  4. one or both of you change jobs to lessen the gap in your commutes
  5. don't buy, just rent in an area that is good for both your commutes (and remember that the bulk of the Swiss population rents).
