Can a foreigner buy property in Switzerland?

Yes, foreigners may buy property in Switzerland, but there are restrictions which limit where and which properties foreigners may buy. Some restrictions are national (federal) rules, others are regional (the canton), and some are local restrictions (the commune). Foreigners may only buy a property in a touristic area, and which is a maximum 200m2 and on a plot less than 1,000m2.

These restrictions do not apply to foreigners who are resident in Switzerland.
