Buying a Home? (vs UK)

Moving over to Switzerland next month, will initially be renting but having had a look on a few immobilier websites have noticed that I would get proportionally much more for my money in buying a place. Which leads me to two questions:

1) Am I legally entitled to buy any property, or is there some kind of local/open market arrangement?

2) What is Swiss house price inflation like compared with the UK? If for example I sell my place in the UK, buy a place in Switzerland and then go back to the UK in 5 years will my total equity be substantially less than if Iíd just kept the UK property and rented it out? (I understand this isnít a black and white issue but in general have other posters thought similar)
