With the mortgage calculator, you can easily and quickly find out whether you can afford your dream property.
You must finance at least 20% of the value of the real estate with your own equity. No more than 10% of this equity can come from your occupational pension. Assuming a property costs CHF 800,000, you would have to finance CHF 160,000 from your own funds. This serves as collateral for the bank.
Equity can come from many different sources, including:
Money from the pension fund and pillar 3a may only be withdrawn in advance to buy or convert a home you will occupy yourself. You can fund up to 10% of the property value from your occupational pension fund, i.e., half of the required equity amount. You can use pillar 3a to finance the remaining 10%. In addition, you can withdraw or pledge equity from your occupational and private pension funds.
As a rule of thumb, the total monthly costs for your property should not exceed 33% of your gross income. This is the only way you can finance your property in the long term. These costs include:
Imputed mortgage interest is based on a long-term average interest rate of 5%.
When buying a property, at least 20% of the price must be funded using your own equity. Banks will finance up to a maximum of 80% as two separate mortgages:
Unlike the first mortgage, you are required to pay back the second. You must pay it back within 15 years or until you reach retirement age – whichever comes first.
Interest varies depending on the mortgage and maturity. In our example, we assume an interest rate of 1%. Simply adjust the hypothetical interest rate in the calculator to find out how rising interest rates will affect your monthly costs.
We will be happy to help you find the right mortgage combination for you.
Maintenance and ancillary costs usually come to about 3% of the property value.
These include costs for water, electricity, garbage, heating and upkeep. Maintenance costs are expenses for keeping the property in good condition, for example, for small repairs and taking care of the surroundings and the garden.
