Despite the Corona crisis and the spreading of uncertainty home ownership is still demanded. If you are thinking about buying an apartment in Zurich, you can expect a stable price. Although it is currently remarkably high. In the long term, the price level could drop somewhat even if only temporarily.

2. Buying a house in Zurich - Property types

Lake view single-family homes and villas are especially popular in Enge and Wollishofen. With the area Leimbach they are considered as district 2. Zurich's district 3 consists of Alt-Wiedikon, Sihlfeld and Friesenberg. Over the years the former working-class district grew into a cosy area full of cafés, boutiques and nightlife. For fans of a good view Höngg might be a good choice. Höngg together with Wipkingen belongs to District 10 and forms a sunny and quiet living environment for families.


If you buy an apartment or house in Zurich Höngg you will be rewarded with a breathtaking view of downtown Zurich and the Limmattal. Popular residential areas are also located in district 11 of Zurich. Real estate in Oerlikon is therefore very popular. Zurich Affoltern might be interesting for those who prefer an urban setting in a rural area. Affoltern is pretty urban, but the village centre is more rural with its farms and timber-framed buildings.


Crucial for the high demand is the area in which the property is located and the amount of gastronomy and cultural amenities close by. However, the amount of such properties is still limited. For this reason buyers have to accept a high price level. Engel & Völkers is very happy to help you finding your dream home in Zurich. The offer ranges from luxury properties to single-family houses and residential homes in Zurich. All of these properties are primarily characterized by their unique location.
