Where is the best place to advertise a large lux home about 45 minutes from Geneva

Hi all
We live about 45 minutes from Geneva (I worked there for 2 years and the commute is no problem-- especially having come from the San Francisco Bay ARea), and we would like to go back to the states for a year.
We have a large beautifully renovated farm in a ski resort, and we would like to rent it out for the year we are away; But I am not sure where to post it or list it?
Do you know of an excellent Geneva real estate or rental agency?
Especially ones that specialize in high-end properties?
Or the perfect website to post it so that those moving to Geneva might see it?
We would also like to sell the house, but in this market, it is almost not possible. Please send your feedback on rental or sale of our magnificent farm-- and if you might be interested, I can send you details and photos of our place;

Re: Where is the best place to advertise a large lux home about 45 minutes from Genev

how about posting it on www.homegate.ch or www.immoscout24.ch ?

P.S. I am not sure about the 24 in the last link

As per BasP's advice, I'd list it on Homegate - it's a very comprehensive website, and multilingual. Would suggest you list it in various languages, including English - a one year lease could be perfect for an expat with a temporary contract.

In the Market Place forum there's a section to advertise homes - see here.

I have noticed that Engel & Völkers have become quite an important player in the Swiss high-end property market over the last few years, they might be worth a try. I have no personal experience with them though.

They have offices in Geneva and Montreux.

It is on the market with several real estate agencies for 990,000€, and if we dont sell it, we would like to rent it for around 2800€ a month for a year, more or less..

Thank you! I will contact them, as the property is currently listed with a few french real estate offices and one English speaking one in Annecy; but I think Geneva would be a better market so I will check out E&V; thanks!

It may be worth contacting a Relocation Agent (or 2) - we really struggled to find suitable rental accomodation.

Good idea! Can I ask which relo company you used? And were you satisfied? And where did you end up renting? Thanks!

Network Relocation & Primacy were the ones we dealt with (we were looking in & around Schaffhausen), it may be worth contacting a couple of the big international companies around Geneva & asking for their relocation agents numbers. Hope this helps.
