Those presently available are increasingly gaining the attention of international investors keen to enter a market of predominantly domestic players. Demand within the established multifamily residential market is further buoyed up by skilled migration growth. Access to this sector provides strong potential for secure and reliable returns. Meanwhile the hotel investment market is particularly active in the big 4 cities - Zurich, Geneva, Basel and the capital Bern. Investors in this category are still favoring hotel lease agreements as the choice operational model. The winter sports destinations of St. Moritz and Zermatt command the highest transaction price per key in Switzerland’s hotel sector. With regard to the office and retail sectors some readjustment has occurred in recent years with greater concentration of retail and office occupiers in the prime locations at the expense of more peripheral areas.
