Quotas limiting the number of non-resident foreigners, including Brits, who can own property in parts of Switzerland are keeping holiday homes there highly sought after in 2013, one of the reasons the value of Swiss real estate has remained comparatively stable throughout the economic crisis.
A strong currency and buoyant economy also make a property in Switzerland popular with wealthy investors, including those from China and Russia, and then there is the scenery, lifestyle and skiing. It’s hardly surprising resorts in Switzerland are the preferred skiing destination of the Royal Family and other rich celebrities. Two such high profile resorts are Klosters and St Moritz, both in one of the most popular areas for ski home ownership in the country, namely the canton of Graubünden, and now Skiingproperty.com brings you the chance to own a ski home there.
“Prices in Switzerland are said to have adjusted only by about 10 per cent last year, enough to attract buyers back to the market,” said Julian Walker of Skiingproperty.com. “The introduction this year of the Lex Weber law, which restricts towns to a maximum of 20 per cent of secondary residences, will keep demand for holiday homes there high. We’re pleased to be able to offer our first opportunity to own a home in one of the most exclusive skiing destinations in the world.”
Skiingproperty.com can now offer the chance to buy a luxury apartment at the five-star Waldhaus Flims Mountain Resort and Spa in the resort of Flims. Properties come with access to the resort’s excellent facilities. Flims is a two-hour transfer by road from Zurich Airport.
