Re: Best places to live near ISB Basel?

Hello-

I'm committed to following the rules of the forum and not post anything if there was a similar post. I have the same question as the post above, as I'm not familiar with the Basel area. I have two older children who will be going to the ISB in Reinach.

We would like to live somewhere in Basel, and have seen Binningen and think it is a nice area, but would love to hear strategies for the competitive market. The last two homes we have seen there were gone before we even had a viewing.

Any advice very welcome.

Re: Best places to live near ISB Basel?

Kids go to the ISB from all over. I know some who went from Hofstetten. So the question should really be "best places to live near Basel".

Binningen is indeed very nice - and sought after. There's no strategies that I'm aware of - you just have to be one of the first to get there, and somehow be picked by the landlord. When we first came to this area, it was only the third application that was successful - first house in Riehen, second in Rheinfelden, third in Pratteln(!).

Re: Best places to live near ISB Basel?

Thank you for the quick reply. You are correct, places to live near Basel is a better search

And thank you for the information on how easy|difficult it is to have a lease accepted. I had to do this once in a competitive market in London - so now that I know what's necessary, I'll up my game.

Does anyone know how difficult it is to live in France or Germany and commute? Is the boarder crossing daily very difficult?
