* Per year there are only 1500 permits for foreigners, not residing in Switzerland, available to acquire a holiday house in Switzerland. These properties in general are restricted to a maximum of 200 m2 living space and a maximum of 1000 m2 of land. These permits are divided amongst the various districts. Only one property can be acquired per person. This is the so called Lex Koller law.
* In 2012 the "Stop the Endless Construction of Secondary Homes " initiative was accepted by Swiss voters. This new constitutional provision will prevent the construction of new holiday homes in tourist regions which already have a 20% or greater share of holiday homes. Around 580 villages are directly impacted. This is the so called Lex Weber law.
The result of this, is that prices are still increasing due to the shortage of supply and an ever existing demand for good holiday houses…
* Switzerland still has a very stable economical environment with a very strong Swiss Franc.
