1. Understand the significance of equity

If you want to build or buy residential property, you need equity. Usually, this equity is topped up with a mortgage. In order to secure a mortgage, you need to put down equity equating to at least 20% of the property's value. This equity is usually made up of a combination of funds from your savings and from your company and private pension schemes (pillars 2 and 3).

2. Define your savings target 

If you do not yet have the necessary equity to buy your future home, we can help you to set up an individualized savings plan. Ask yourself the following questions to find out how much more you need in order to fulfill your dream:

  • Which investments do you think will be necessary for your new home?
  • How much equity do you need (20%)?
  • Which savings do you have at your disposal?
  • How large is your financing shortfall and how can you eliminate it?

With this information, you can use our calculator to discover how much money you need to set aside in order to reach your savings target.
