Zurich property prices almost doubled since 2007
17 Oct
A new report has shown the rise in property prices in Switzerland over the last 11 years, with Zurich specifically recording the greatest increases.

Price comparison firm Comparis and ETH Zurich’s new report shows that in Zurich, it now costs almost double to buy an apartment than it did in 2007 – marking a 97% increase. The price per square metre is now setting property owners back an average of 13,000 Swiss francs.

Even though the analysis shows varying price changes across Switzerland, areas witnessing the largest price rises were mainly situated by lakes. Nine out of the ten largest increases were recorded in lake regions.

Following Zurich, the greatest changes were seen in Horgen district (+89%), the canton of Nidwalden (+82%) and the city of Neuchatel (+80%). Prices only fell in the district of Goms in Canton Valais, southern Switzerland. (-2%).

Additionally, the report revealed the difference in overall prices across the country. Canton Neuchatel stood at the opposite end of the spectrum from Zurich. In the canton, one square metre costs an average of 3,250 francs.
