House buying

Hi there,
Hope you can help me with a few questions.
I'm currently renting a house but am thinking of buying. I'd like a 5 zimmer house but renting one of those in Zurich may be too expensive - so that's why I am thinking of buying - should be cheaper?

But, I'm English and know nothing about buying a house here (and my German is bad). I've heard people talk of estate agents fees of 6% and also of only 0.5% - that can't be right ???

I've searched the threads and couldn't find anything relevant.
Can anyone give me any ball park ideas?
Many thanks in advance
