Property Finders

Hi

Does anyone know if they have property finders in Zurich? We are thinking of buying a place here but only know of Homegate.ch - and from what I've heard places sell through who you know. I was hoping we could get someone to do the donkey work for us - ie we say what we want, they tell us to be sensible and find us something we can live with....

Thanks in advance!

Sharon

Same here...

Our relocation agency found a selection of houses/appartments for us to view from those sites.

Re: Property Finders

I found Comparis.ch to be much more use than an agent. You can put in detailed criteria of what you're looking for, and they send a mail whenever something comes up. They seem to have access to all the major sites.......

I tried Remax but have yet to hear ANYTHING back from them.......

Re: Property Finders

Hi,

There certainly are - I cannot comment on their usefulness or give recommendations however.
It is not clear to me whether these outfits really get access to markets
otherwise hidden to the outsider, or whether they just point you
at properties which are otherwise on homegate.

relocateeasy.ch
is one you could talk to - they'll typically want a percentage of the sale
price

if you can't see what you fancy on homegate it might just be because it
doesn't exist - the sale market is _miniscule_ here compared to London

Good luck
Andy

Re: Property Finders

hmm so homegate / comparis it is then - its so different to London. Mind you I suppose that has its advantages given I trust estate agents about as far as I could throw them ....

One of the first houses we looked at was being shown by REMAX, over 2 years ago. We told them to keep on the lookout for us, but we never heard from them for the next 20 months. Maybe we shouldn't have specified "privacy" as a major requirement?

Re: Property Finders

There are many other websites out there. I'll try and dig out some of them. The search criteria are quite good on some of them including viewing all selections on a map, and specifying modern or old-stylee. You find most of the properties on all of them which means you can glean an awful lot without leaving your armchair. Especially if you combine this with research about the Gemeinde, local area, tax levels, distance from Lob's house. etc etc
