Most home buyers are keen to know about the interest conditions when taking out a mortgage. They are looking for the best interest rate or want to compare the respective interest rates. Strictly speaking, however, such a comparison is not possible, as each financing arrangement is assessed and offered individually.

How the interest rate on your mortgage is calculated

The value of the property, your assets and the affordability of your mortgage play a major role in determining the specific interest conditions on your mortgage. You can expect better conditions for a property with a better value than its quality, a solid income and sufficient available assets. However, the amount of interest also depends on the term and timing of the transaction. This is due to constant fluctuations in interest rates. These can deviate significantly upwards or downwards within a few days.

And you can benefit from Swiss Life as an independent mortgage broker. We support you in finding the ideal time for fixing the interest rate. You can choose the right mortgage from Swiss Life’s financing options and those of other providers in a self-determined manner.

This is how mortgage interest rates in Switzerland have developed over the past ten years:
