If you are buying in Switzerland it is usually not the rental yield that interests you, because in the past Swiss rental returns been comparatively poor. But as the global house price boom has gathered steam over the past 15 years, Swiss rental returns have stayed steady, no doubt due to the fact that foreigners are discouraged from buying in Switzerland. Swiss rental returns are still classified by us as "poor". But rental returns in much of the world are now worse than they used to be, and Swiss returns are no longer particularly low.
