Re: to rent or to buy

Personal opinion - your mileage may vary:

I would only buy a house or other dwelling in Switzerland if I was reasonably certain that I wanted to spend the rest of my life here.

Otherwise - rent & be flexible.
Talking about being flexible, have you seen the recent interest rates? Our mortgage just rolled over and our payment is now half of what it was last month. The papers say that rents are unable to be dropped to respond to current interest rates until 2010.
