The best site to advertise your apartment

We have to move out of our apartment before the lease expires and I wonder if anyone can advise a website to use/ or not to use to find new tenants.

I already put an ad at anibis.ch but don't have much response. Both Immoscout.ch and immostreet.ch charge for their services and I can't decide which one to use...

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Re: The best site to advertise your apartment

Try homegate.ch and home.ch and for private sales you could also try petitesannonces.ch

www.newhome.ch. I believe it's the third biggest property portal in Switzerland. But what's best is that it's free to advertise on there.

Re: The best site to advertise your apartment

Try Tutti.ch or a local facebook group. People are constantly posting and showing interest in the apartments listed in the buy/sell/trade group I'm in.

Both are free.

Good luck with the search!

Homegate has by far the widest reach.

Thank you so much! We'll try the free resource first and hope we will get lucky.

Re: The best site to advertise your apartment

If your apartment is of relatively good standing, relocation companies are


often interested in opportunities, try contacting this one, a big player on the


arc lémanique.

Re: The best site to advertise your apartment

i wouldn't bother with homegate. i got 1 inquiry in 6 months for a beautiful and central apartment with a good listing and good photos.

paid several hundred CHFs for listing in total.

Re: The best site to advertise your apartment

Tips on advertising in general:

Have a structured description listing the all relevant details. English alone is not good enough. Use a local language first and get it proof read.
See also: https://www.englishforum.ch/housing-...achmieter.html

Take good and appealing pictures. No blurry, bad lit, out of focus, titled, pictures showing untidy, cluttered, dirty rooms.
See some of the many helpful guides: https://www.google.ch/search?q=how+t...tos+for+rental

Re: The best site to advertise your apartment

A few of the suggestions above will get you on to Comparis or immomapper.ch, and I would say that these websites have the widest reach. Like someone else said, I wouldn't waste your money on homegate.

Try in newhome.ch, which is free. Then it goes on to Comparis for free as well. Good luck!

You can also post it in Migros and Coop's "Gratis Kundeninserate" board.

Re: The best site to advertise your apartment

As already mentionned, I would go for homegate. then it will appear in comparis which I believe is widely used.
and also EF of course .
I am on the same situation and will be using these pages.


My only concern is the landlord. I hope he accepts the new person..

Re: The best site to advertise your apartment

Hello,

I think homegate is the most commonly used by people.

Also, for approx CHF 30, you can advertise on http://www.nachmieter.ch. Its very Swiss though, all in German, but it is exactly what you are looking for... a "nachmieter" to take over your lease...so depending how desparate you are, it may be worth the cost.

Re: The best site to advertise your apartment

Good luck with yours! We used anibis, tutti, homegate, FB, Migro, Coop, CHUV with no luck so far. August is indeed a very slow month, so it looks like we will have to pay for one month after we leave ...

I was worried about the landlord as well , but - surprisingly - they were very helpful in processing the dossiers and preparing the new contract for prospective new tenants who later changed their mind.

Hope you will find new tenants soon!
