FAQ

Property Hunt is an independent property search company acting solely on behalf of buyers.
A real estate agency is employed by property owners and has the objective to sell the property on the most favourable terms possible for the vendors.
An estate agent can only show you properties on which he has been directly instructed. If by chance you like the property he presents, you need to remember that estate agents are employed by owners and that they will defend their client’s interest before yours.
Some real estate companies have a buying arm where you can sign a search mandate and get a similar service except for one crucial difference: Property Hunt is completely independent and therefore you can be assured of impartial advice.
We will guide you throughout the process of acquiring a property in the French-speaking part of Switzerland.
Property Hunt sources properties in the Swiss real estate market, previews and shortlists suitable properties, accompanies the buyer on viewing shortlisted properties, negotiates the selected realty and guides the client up to the signature of the contract at a solicitor.
Are you bored searching the Internet? Are you tired of visiting unattractive properties after reading promising advertisements?
