Re: Rent a house in Switzerland

I think it really depends on the location. If it's in the village I'm living right now I don't think 2000 CHF is enough for 5 rooms.
The standard for 3 rooms is CHF 1600-1900/month.

The online sites are good to know about the price range but not really effective in renting them.
I would also suggest to try contacting the local agent rather than the big online ones, because what happen in my case was the apartments that were advertised there are no longer available.

What I did then I contacted several local agents by e-mail describing the criteria that I needed and then they'll give me a list of what they got then I can set up a time to visit the apartment before deciding on renting anything. Because sometimes, according to my experience the condition is 'slightly' different then what is advertised

Re: Rent a house in Switzerland

Leysin and Leytron are very different....

It may not be so easy but i guess Chf 2000.-- maybe enough to find a 5 room house in Leytron.

Make sure you understand the additional costs! I found when renting an apartment that most things were included in the rent but fewer things were included in the house rent - like, for example, water & sewage charges.

Re: Rent a house in Switzerland

Hi,

My neighbours are renting out their house just outside Zug. For a furnished 5.5 room house in a small community, they are asking for 3700 plus additional charges of 375 per month. However, they are offering it furnished and only for a limited time (April 2012 to October 2013). I think that 2000 is probably too little for a house of this size even if not furnished.

Good luck!

Re: Rent a house in Switzerland

It depends entirely on location - here in the Jura, it would be possible- but nowhere near Zurich, Zug, Lausanne, Geneva.

That`s cheap for a house in Kanton Zug. I doubt they will have any trouble moving that. Do you mind what village?

Re: Rent a house in Switzerland

Hi there

another website to look for housing is www.immoscout24.ch

And yes, it really depends on where you want to rent. Like anything close to a big city like Zurich or Geneva will be expensive.
We are renting in a village about 30-40 mins. out of Zurich and are paying CHF 4500 for a 6 1/2 room townhouse.
Also be careful, the rooms are counted differently here. they do count the lounge as one of the rooms, so if it says 5 rooms, then its only 4 bedrooms.

Hope this helps.

Sandra
