Unless you buy with cash, you gain no security, in CH it actually creates a tax liability
There is also of course the cost of opportunity that a lot of people don't think about... The bank will for sure mention this.

They won't, as I won't be speaking to them to ask for their advice. Why ask advice from someone who needs a monthly pay check to live?
Rather like going to Wall Street in your chauffeur driven Rolls Royce & getting advice from someone who took the subway to work

In terms of my location interest levels still seem to be at a high. Friends of ours only advertised their detached house three weeks ago and have daily viewings since. Three separate clients have all agreed to pay the asking price advertised! A very nice position to be in. The house is quite a new build being six years old in Jan.

Who said the 'Swiss buy for life'?
That's very interesting. Could you give us some details, please: location, type (independent house, chalet etc), price range...?

Thanks.

As in somebody who hasn't worked out how to take the subway and has also failed their driving test taking advice from somebody who is one step ahead of him?
