Building and buying
Buying your own home
The process of buying your own home involves several stages that need to be completed before your dream is realized. We have drawn up a list of the most important points you need to bear in mind:
Please note: Real estate transfer tax is levied in most cantons when a house is purchased. This is normally paid by the buyer or shared equally by the buyer and seller. In many cases the purchase price for the property serves as the basis for calculating the amount of real estate transfer tax payable (varies from canton to canton). Please consult a notary to find out what arrangements you can expect.
