Swiss real estate market: Current facts
The quarterly Real Estate Monitor and the annual real estate study from Credit Suisse provide a comprehensive look at the Swiss real estate market. The publications focus on the long-term development of supply and demand for real estate in Switzerland.
At the core of both the real estate study and the Real Estate Monitor is a review of the current market situation. For example, prices for condominiums and single-family dwellings have risen almost continuously since 2002. There was only a brief decline in prices in 2017. Initially, the reasons behind the increase in demand for residential properties and the rise in prices were relatively low price levels and strong economic growth. Over the last few years, historically low mortgage rates have been the main driver.
The publications do not limit themselves however to an analysis of the market for residential property. Each one contains a section on the markets for residential properties, offices and commercial space as well as real estate investments.
The Credit Suisse real estate study provides a comprehensive overview of the current situation on the Swiss real estate market.

In addition to the development of real estate prices and vacancies, the real estate study also looks at current topics. This provides a fascinating insight into the special features of the Swiss real estate market and societal changes. Why are high-rise buildings going through a renaissance? Who makes the decision when purchasing a house – the man or the woman? What is the reason behind the increase in single-person households? What impact do regulatory measures have on demand for residential properties? These and many other questions have been answered in previous editions of the real estate study.
