Well, then maybe we have grown up together ... well, let's agree to disagree then!
Well prices haven't changed much in that time.

1967, house in Gentilino cost 1M to build.

Sold in 2012 for 1M8.

2006, house in Viganello built for 2M2, sold in 2016 for 2M2.

So no, no real change.

Interesting as in 1970, when I first went to live in London, it was 10 Chuffs to the £.

However, all was bought/sold in CHF, and it was 4.20 to the USD, and there were 8 USD to 1 GBP.

No, they haven't. Some foreign currencies have turned to shit, but Swiss prices in terms of CHF are largely unchanged.

Definitely gone up a lot in Geneva over that period.... but it's probably the exception that proves the rule in that respect.

House prices in my street (tiny sample, in Basel-Land) have doubled since 1982 — i.e. over 34 years. My neighbours think that's amazing, they're thrilled. By comparison, my flat in London more than trebled in value over 14 years and my house nearly trebled in price over 13 years. Many suburbs in Sydney have seen year-on-year double-digit price increases for a long string of years.
