Download the Comparis property app - it compiles all of the different real estate sites into one search.

Be aware that you generally need to physically be in Switzerland with a work permit in hand in order to get a flat. The general advice is to arrange short-term accommodation for the first few months after you arrive. (Air bnb, short-term furnished lodging, etc.)

Re: Anything other than homegate?

plus one on the comparis recommendation because it pulls in searches from other sites. And just keep looking - its hard here (and in other countries too).

We rent a flat to a tenant who does not live in Switzerland but just wants a place for when he spends his 2 x 90 days in Schengen and wants to feel "at home". I know a few other people who do this as well.
