In recent years, the Swiss economy, as well as the Swiss real estate market, has shown positive momentum due to the positive economic situation of the country. Although the crisis in the American housing market no doubt has its impact, it did not dramatically affect the demand or prices in Switzerland. The main reason for this is the high population growth in Switzerland, which is partly due to the influx of residents from abroad. Indeed, annual population growth has long been a determining factor in the residential property market in Switzerland. It also should be noted that an increasing proportion of immigrants are highly skilled, which contributes to increased demand in the residential real estate.
Switzerland is home to some of the best mountainous villages, ski resorts, and year-round lifestyle property in the world. Nestled in the Urseren Valley, in the canton of Uri, lies Andermatt, a small skiing village that has gone overlooked by outside developers for the past few decades. With a population of around 1,200 people, this quiet, peaceful village sits in a very strategic location, just ten minutes from the north-south autobahn and is only a short car or train ride from both Zurich and Milan. Thanks to the efforts of Egyptian billionaire Samih Sawiris, CEO of Orascom Development, a £1.2Bn project, named Andermatt Swiss Alps AG (ASA), was started in 2008 and is designed to turn Andermatt into a year-round resort town for both summer and winter activities.
An idyllic coastal city filled with beautiful landscapes, fascinating historical sites, and a myriad of attractions, Larnaca City, the third largest city in Cyprus, is a quickly growing destination for real estate investment, either in personal or commercial property. Resting on Cyprus’ southern coast, within the heart of the district that shares its name, Larnaca is the oldest city in Cyprus and remains one of the major seaside resorts on the island. With a population hovering around 143,000, the city is bustling and vibrant without ever feeling overcrowded.
Limassol city is the second largest metropolitan area in Cyprus. It is located on the southern coast of Cyprus, bordering the Mediterranean sea. Voted by TripAdvisor to be the third traveler’s choice destination on the rise, Limassol has a great deal to offer including subtropical temperatures, vibrant beaches, wine, history, and ports for docking yachts. Limassol holidays are popular among tourists looking for sun, sand, and luxury. But visitors aren’t the only people flocking to the city of Limassol. An upsurge of foreign investors has led to more and more people making long term moves to this area. Real estate in Limassol is a hot commodity.
Perhaps the most important issue of concern to most foreigners who buy real estate in Switzerland is the opportunity to obtain a permanent residence and citizenship. In Switzerland, there are no immigration programs, such as the green card lottery in the USA, skilled workers immigration programs in Canada, Australia and New Zealand, or the UK immigration visas. This country is considered one of the most “closed” for relocation. Obtaining a residence permit in this beautiful country is in all respects not so easy.
The Swiss tax system is a mirror of the state structure of the country — a confederation under which each of the 26 cantons has its own laws, including on taxation. Cantons govern on their own the taxation of income, property, inheritance, capital, land and other facilities. In turn, each of the 2,800 municipalities of the country has the right to levy local taxes at its own discretion or to use the framework established at the cantonal level. At the federal level, despite the fact that the main revenue yields come from VAT, stamp duties and customs fees, there is also a federal income tax. All taxes in Switzerland can be divided into three groups.
