Financing Your New Life in Switzerland (Sponsored Post)

Swiss Loans
Starting over in a new country is not easy, and financing your new life in Switzerland can be one of life’s biggest challenges. Switzerland, of course, welcomes thousands of expats each year. Each person has their own financial background and experience, but the rules and general costs of living typically remain the same.

While this is true, there is also somewhat of a lack of transparency which can make it difficult for newcomers to see what services are available. You only have to look to the tax or land buying systems to see this... So today, I wanted to shed some light on personal finance in Switzerland.

Switzerland is generally known for being efficient, organized, and expensive. The Swiss franc has been (and still is) strong enough to worry financial analysts if its value continues to rise against other currencies, Switzerland could enter a serious recession. But for the time being, a strong Swiss franc means that expats need to adjust to higher living costs.

Life's Expenses

Housing, groceries, and eating out are among the most expensive things in Switzerland. When Big Macs cost almost 13 francs and average rents for a 3-bedroom apartment cost 3'000 francs per month, it is not surprising to find out that Switzerland has two cities in the "Top 10 most expensive cities in the world" rankings. Utility bills range from 300 to 500 francs per month, and food is up to 30 per cent more expensive than in neighboring countries. Car ownership also works out to be costly, as in addition to import taxes you will have to budget for cantonal tax, insurance, parking permits, petrol, and a vignette (freeway tax).

Financing and Mortgage Options

Swiss LoansFor many expats, a higher cost of living comes with higher than average salaries. It may be feasible to buy property or a car in Switzerland with your new salary, but what are the best options when it comes to financing large purchases like these?

One would think that Swiss banks are the best solution, as choice is plentiful. But how well do banks fare when compared to private institutions who also offer credit? Generally speaking, banks fare very well, but it does not mean expats should not look at alternative sources of funding.

Swiss banks typically offer average rates of 2.3 per cent for fixed 10-year mortgages, while variable mortgages have rates of 2.85 per cent. However, you must note that banks split the total amount borrowed into "tranches" (or bands), one of which will incur substantially higher rates than the other. When this is taken into account, it might be worth looking at private credit as an alternative option.

Private Lenders

Swiss LoansSome private lenders offer perks like delaying your first repayment for 3 months at no extra cost, minimal bureaucracy, fast approval and transfers into your bank account (usually 24 hours/7 days), and the possibility of reducing your tax bill by deducting the interest paid on your loan from your annual taxable income.

Private lenders finance large sums of up to 250'000 francs and include payment protection in case you are unable to meet repayments, as well as total confidentiality and strict data protection procedures.

Of course, every case is different, but if you need to finance large purchases in Switzerland, do not dismiss private credit options, as they could be just what you are looking for. After all, balancing private credit options with a good salary can be the best way to finance your new life.

After so many months of trying to get a loan on the internet and was scammed the sum of about $8,000 i became so desperate in getting a loan from a legit loan lender online who will not add to my pains,then i decided to contact a friend of mine who recently got a loan online, we discussed about the issue and to our conclusion she told me about a man called Mr Andy Jackson who is the CEO CHUN KOME LOAN COMPANY So i applied for a loan sum of ($75,000.00) with low interest rate so the loan was approved easily without stress and all the preparations where made concerning the loan transfer and in less than four(48) HOURS the loan was deposited into my bank account i thought it was a joke until i received a call from my bank that my account have been credited with $75,000.00 i became so happy that finally god have answered my prayers by directing me to a real loan lender who was able to grant my heart desires. big thanks to Mr beson west for making life reasonable for me, i am advising everybody who is interested in getting a loan to kindly contact him via email (besonwest106@gmail.com) that was how i got my loan and i was able to pay off my bills.Thanks as you took out time to read about my success story and i pray god will also do his will in your life
