The Residential Real Estate Market Report Switzerland 2020 is here: Home ownership remains attractive

Safe haven Switzerland – the dream of home ownership remains attractive

Residential real estate is more popular than ever, whether as an investment or the fulfilment of a dream of owning one’s own house and this, above all, in Switzerland. Switzerland has once more become a safe haven in a time where the current global situation is characterised by political and financial uncertainty, and there seems to be no sign of this changing. Low mortgage interest rates and a stable economic environment will continue to increase demand in the current year and encourage property sales. 

Digitalisation – a challenge for real estate sellers

Increasing digitalisation is making the market more transparent and real estate transactions more challenging in general. An abundance of information can be found online and buyers are generally better informed, more competent and compare what is on offer very thoroughly. A market-oriented valuation of a property is therefore key to a successful sale. Because Engel & Völkers is locally based, our intimate knowledge of the market enables us to correctly assess the value of your property.

Canton Lucerne - living in the heart of Switzerland

We offer fantastically beautiful properties in Meggen, St. Niklausen, Kastanienbaum, Horw, the city of Lucerne, Weggis or elsewhere in the beautiful canton of Lucerne. The charming central canton in the heart of Switzerland is known far beyond the borders of Lake Lucerne. In addition to a wide variety of locations, the canton of Lucerne also boasts outstanding infrastructure and a sometimes unique tax environment. The canton’s central location offers property owners a large selection of nearby destinations.

The central city life in Lucerne is particularly in demand for apartment seekers, but holiday destinations such as Weggis and Vitznau also invite you to discover your dream home further out.

The city of Lucerne – an oasis of well-being for property owners

The city of Lucerne is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful cities in Switzerland.  The chapel bridge of Lucerne and the water tower have become symbols of the city. Together with the KKL (Lucerne Culture and Congress Center) they bring worldwide fame to the central swiss centre of art and culture. Every year, thousands of tourists travel to the City of Lights, Lucerne to be enchanted by the charm of the city and its surrounding communities. Like the canton, the city of Lucerne offers a variety of residential properties in a manageable area. The house in natural surroundings merges with an urban quality of life.

Many Lucerneers dream of living in their own home. The most favorable time for a real estate purchase is when the interest rates are low. Engel & Völkers Lucerne specializes in finding the best properties and giving you exclusive access to them.

Real estate in Lucerne


From exciting investment opportunities to beautifully located living spaces, Lucerne offers an appealing and wide range of real estate not only because of its scenic diversity, but also because of the diverse population. Residential areas such as Horw, Kriens, Adligenswil, Udligenswil, as well as the Rontal, etc. with inviting family quarters border on breathtaking neighborhoods, just as they can be found in Kastanienbaum, Meggen or the city of Lucerne. Charming old-style apartments, modern new apartments, small chalets with gardens - the real estate on offer in the Lucerne area is as individual as our customers. Living where others go on holiday – it’s a credo that stretches from the Horwer peninsula to Weggis and Vitznau. Enjoy breathtaking sunsets on your private balcony or patio.

Whether only a few square meters or an extensive living space - the real estate portfolio in Lucerne leaves nothing to be desired. Nature lovers, city people, investors, families, celebrities, ordinary people - you will find your dream home in the canton of Lucerne.

Prices and locations of real estate

The price is not as high for a family home in the city of Lucerne and the neighboring sea communities as it is in the more common Swiss hotspots, which include, for example the neighboring canton of Zug. Nevertheless, given the price of property transfer ranging between 1.5 and 2 million francs for a medium-sized property, the number of potential buyers has narrowed noticeably. A growing number of buyers are therefore attracted to the Lucerne agglomeration and now increasingly to the rural areas of the canton as well. These include the communities Schwarzenberg, Malters, Ebikon, Dierikon, Buchrain, Root, Gisikon, Honau, Greppen, as well as those closer to the city, such as Entlebuch with Doppelschwand, Entlebuch, Flühli, Hasle (LU), Romoos, Schüpfheim, Werthenstein, Escholzmatt-Marbach and of course Wolhusen.
