The answers to your most frequently asked questions
  • Is the sale offer final?
    Yes. Once the offer submitted, you will have up to 7 days to accept it.
  • Does the service charge any commission?
    No. Swifthome is not a real estate agency. You are selling your home directly to Swifthome. Thus, no third party to remunerate.
  • When do I need to move out?
    Depending on your situation, 2 options are available: your accommodation is vacant, you can hand-over the keys - the transaction process is closed within 7 days. On the other hand if you need more time to vacate your accommodation (max. 18 months), a forward sale contract will be signed at the notary. You will get 20% deposit and receive the balance once you move out.
  • What is the visit process?
    One of our experts will get in touch with you to come visit your property for a detailed valuation. He will consider few criteria such as the location, the neighborhood, the maintenance, and eventual repairs. He might also request some documents related to your property and of course, will take few pictures to finalize our offer.

  • How do you estimate the value of my property?
    Our calculation tool is based on the model used by Swiss banks for granting mortgages. This model analyzes thousands of properties sold recently and incorporates both criteria specific to your property (surface area, year of construction, etc.) and criteria relating to location (public transport, shops, schools, etc.)
  • Can I choose my notary?
    Yes, you are free to choose a notary at your convenience.
  • What if I am already using the service of a broker?
    In general, brokerage mandates allow you to sell your property yourself. There is nothing preventing you from selling it to Swifthome.

    Swifthome buys apartments and houses as-is. We are active in Geneva, Vaud, Valais, Fribourg.
  • My property is not located in the selected area, can I still get an offer?
    Yes. Kindly proceed to the assessment process and leave your contact details. We will get in touch with you separately.
