Compared to the UK, the Swiss property market is tame - 20% deposit and capital gains tax has helped moderate the market.
This is a very good point. Imagine the market without the 20% equity and 5% threshold rate.

Re: housing bubble??

Maybe people fear inflation and want to lock-in their savings in real-estate?

Is it just me or did the individual house prices (not apartment) in the 1M+ range around Lausanne shot up like crazy in the last year?

There is nothing below 2M+ in the 15min circle around Lausanne where you have good public transport and school system with their own high school. A good house with decent size land. There are lots of mitoyen etc, but not the same thing.

The cheaper houses are 20, 25min outside and have so-so transport links and no high schools in their zones.

Anyway, individual houses in this region have taken 20% only this year. People living in apartments during covid have discovered the importance of having a garden.

Also with the negative interest rate on deposits people are looking into placing their money.

So yes, the future for individual houses with land 15 min by car from city center will become more and more scarce

I wanted to conter that, but in 15km line-sight of Lausanne there are about 15 individual "villas" under 2M.

It wasn't like that before Covid.

OK but this is Penthaz, nothing wrong with it but difficult to sell because poor transport link and no high school. In that region you have a lot of things in the 1.2M - 1.5M but things stay for sale for months, because it's 45 min by public transport to Lausanne

If you look in that region, if you have kids they will depend a lot on you for transport when they are teenagers

If you look at the TL transport map now there is where the market thoughness is, you pay double price but you can always sell super quick if you buy in a good location.

Don't get me wrong, I like Echallens and the surroundings but even people with cars like to stay closer to the main transport links / school zones

Savigny is very good but again only 1 bus line and no high school. But even there prices are up
