Building land prices in Switzerland vary greatly from region to region. In rural areas such as Thurgau, land prices are considerably lower than in the region around Lake Zurich, for example. However, the price of building land can also differ greatly within a canton: in Canton Zurich, for example, in 2012 the average cost of building land lay between CHF 244/m2 (Altikon) and CHF 3,923/m2 (Zollikon).
Various factors influence building land prices
But why these differences? One important criterion is location (transport connections, infrastructure, view, noise, etc.). But special building regulations, special rules – in respect of the plot ratio for example – and the quality of the building site (hillside plot, rock, water, etc.) can also have an impact on the selling price. Another deciding factor is whether the building land already has water, power and drainage connections available.
