Should I buy apartment with one or two parking lots?

Hi folks

Wonder if anyone can help me with this:


Are the numbers of parking lots available in an flat/house make any difference when reselling the property in Switzerland, more specifically in Basel land

Yes, they add to the price/value.

Around here they are worth 15k/each.

Assuming you are talking about a new build as part of a development:

1) You'll pay per parking spot
2) The parking spots aren't tied to the apartment - IE you can resell if you want - or rent it out.
3) When you sell you can include either/both/none of the spaces

Depending on where you are will define the "value" of a parking space.

I initially bought one (flat info 4.5 rooms 124 m**2) but when I realised some (not all) of the neighbours with same size flat had two. I bought another one.

My logic - kids grow up and have a car before they leave the home so you need somewhere to park and there was nowhere near where it was convieient to park.

Two- easier to sell or rent afterwards if you need to.

That should buy a bicycle spot in BL.

OP, buy as many car spaces as you can afford (if the price seems reasonable). You can always resell unwanted spaces later, but you may have a huge problem acquiring more if you find you need them in the future -- and now you have the opportunity (presumably) to buy adjacent spaces.

They're not making any more land ... get 'em while you can!

Also worth considering that at some point in the future you will have your sensible family car and your mid-life crisis/always promised toy/retirement fund splurge car (on a Wechsel-schild) - you'll need 2 spaces then!

Think Future proof.
Buy 2 now & you can put your boat in there or you can sell it off.

Buy 2 if you can

Another option; I have two but only use one, The other parking space is rented out.
