What to keep in mind
Assessing the value of your home
When selling your house or apartment, you need to know its real market value. That will depend on the size of the property, the year it was built and its general condition. Location is another key factor: in town or in the countryside, close to public transportation and other services of interest (such as hospitals, schools, and shops), and so on.
Before selling your home, find out whether it makes more sense to gift it to a family member. The tax consequences of this decision may be significant. Also, did you know that the gain on the sale of your home is subject to Switzerland’s property gain tax?
