Jura – The youngest canton of Switzerland and breathtaking landscape

In the northwest of Switzerland lies the idyllic canton of Jura. Just recently, the canton celebrated its 40th anniversary, which makes it the youngest canton in Switzerland. Originally, the areas of the canton belonged to the canton of Bern, due to cultural differences such as language and religion, they gained their current independence. The canton takes its name from the Jura mountains, which extend across neighbouring France. It is at the foot of this mountain on the Swiss side that the canton was established. The capital of the canton of Jura is Delsberg, which is also the largest city in the canton. It is better known under the French name of Delémont. In addition to the canton of the same name, the Jura licence area also encompasses municipalities of the Bernese Jura in the canton of Bern.

Real estate market– large vacant lots, affordable home ownership, and rising demand

The real estate market in the canton of Jura is characterised from one side by a large number of vacant lots from the other side by a high availability of living spaces. Due to the settlements being relatively less dense, single-family houses are the typical form of living. As a result, the canton of Jura has the second-highest rate of home ownership in Switzerland at a rate of just under 58 percent. Real estate prices in the canton have risen in recent years, however, they are still very low compared to other cantons. The districts of Delémont and Porrentruy are two of the ten most inexpensive districts in Switzerland for residential property in the canton of Jura. It is from these low real estate prices and the current low mortgage rates that demand for residential property is rising.
