From our office in Pfäffikon SZ and our showroom in Brunnen we look after the canton of Schwyz and the regions of Wädenswil and Richterswil in the canton of Zurich (Zimmerberg).
The area Wädenswil and Richterswil on Lake Zurich and the districts of Schwyz - March, Höfe, Einsiedeln and Schwyz are very popular. Among other things the canton of Schwyz is much appreciated for its unique location with astonishing views on the Lake, the proximity to the cosmopolitan city of Zurich and the mountains with idyllic hiking trails. In addition, the region offers top schools for the young and an international flair. The good location in the heart of Switzerland as well as the attractive tax situation are causing more and more people to settle in the canton of Schwyz and on Lake Zurich.
The regional real estate market is in great demand. There is interest in buying, but buyers have become more price-sensitive. With dwinding supply, real estate prices tend to move sideways, while prices for older properties are even slightly declining. Existing properties compete with new buildings in the region. In the year 2018, objects older than 15 years are continuing to feel price pressure. The fear of high investment costs and the more restrictive financing policies of the banks complicate the purchase transactions and the duration of the transactions are prolonged. Newer flats and real estate in center and promising locations remain popular.
The most popular locations:
Region Höfe: The community Wollerau, Freienbach, Bäch, Pfäffikon SZ, Schindellegi & Feusisberg continue to enjoy great popularity. Properties with view and privacy, good accessibility and infrastructure are in demand. A surplus of Höfe are the low tax rates.
