It all depends where on earth you want to live?

If at the northern part of Zurich, Wallisellen (not the new part), Dietlikon, Dübendorf etc.

It all get cheaper the further away you are so you´d need to see what you want to pay

Re: Cheapest parts of Zurich?

Glattbrugg is pretty cheap, both in terms of rents and for taxes.

If you're into plane spotting, that's also a bonus.

If you mind about loud planes, less so.

And before anybody lays into me for saying that, allow me to clarify that of course there are also some quieter neighbourhoods there, and some parts are actually quite nice.

You are funny...... Going by public transport, car, bicycle, on foot?

How long should that commute be by whatever transport at most?

Re: Cheapest parts of Zurich?

Cheaper usually means either bad transportation, high taxes, loud, old flat, difficult neighbours/neighbourhood. The cheaper, the more combinations of the above. Pick your poison.

ZH Oberland (Uster, Wetzikon, Pfäffikon ZH) is relatively cheap, doesn't have (much) airplane noise, reasonable good connections by public transport, reasonable local shopping choices, and not extremely "run down" in general.

Oberland is way out but you gave a good option, thanks

Commute would be a breeze actually!

Re: Cheapest parts of Zurich?

Zürcher Oberland is beautiful. And you can still buy property there with actual plot-sizes that deserve the name.
Would love to live there.

But I'd hate to commute from there every day.

As you're not fussed, it might be easier for you to check-out the various apartment hunting links using the search function on EF.

At the end of the day, we all set our own comfort zone .

Re: Cheapest parts of Zurich?

Aside from the fact that I don't know what "cheap" means: no cheap parts in Zurich City. Very expensive, expensive and slightly less expensive, these are your choices.

You can find some crappy old apartments at a slightly lower price in every neighborhood and every suburb of course. If that's what you want.

In the surburbs: the further away from the city the cheaper Simples, really. Cheaper comes with less infrastructure, less public transportation, and really just less of everything in general.

In the near surburbs: see above, doesn't matter, all more or less equally expensive.

Re: Cheapest parts of Zurich?

Tagesanzeiger has a few maps for Zurich and canton:
http://blog.tagesanzeiger.ch/datenbl...cher-gemeinden
http://blog.tagesanzeiger.ch/datenbl...ietpreise-dazu

I'd really consider Neerach: cheap rents, cheap taxes - which, depending on your income, can exceed your rent expense several times over, and it's practically next door to Germany - big savings on groceries, dentists, etc
