Leaving CH - Tax on House Sale

Hello everybody

This is my first post but I am thinking about leaving Switzerland due to redundancy.

I have been here 13 years and bought a new house 4 years ago. Fortunately, I should make a profit according to the estate agent. Unfortunately, there will be a hefty tax on any gain (Grundstuckgewinnsteuer).

Are there any tax planning actions I can take to reduce the tax or should I just be glad if I make a profit in the current financial climate?

Thanks for any comments and advice.
