We resume our Buyer Guide series with a look at
Switzerland, which we last covered in late July when news of the repeal of Lex Koller was announced.
Where to Look
Although only a small country and, moreover, one that has a highly defined identity in public consciousness,
Switzerland does offer a number different themes for the investor/visitor. For skiers the choice of property may be decided by the appeal of particular resorts or concerns about the effects of global warming on lower altitude ski slopes. This is likely to increase the popularity of the most mountainous cantons, such as Graubunden (Grisons) or Valais. For other investors the choice may be a matter linguistic skills deciding whether they opt for a French-, German- or Italian-speaking district.
