Benefits of Home-sharing in Switzerland

Shared apartments in Switzerland are known to be a fantastic way to generate extra monthly income with added benefits. To qualify as a flat-sharing agreement, the tenant of the room must share a kitchen or bathroom with the owner or main tenant of the apartment.

Housing has become increasingly popular in Switzerland. If you are considering home sharing management service in Switzerland, here are some of the benefits:

Extra income

Let’s start with the obvious. Depending on your location, surrounding amenities, and the quality of your home, sharing a home can generate $500 to $1,000 in additional revenue each month for the guest rooms you rent.

Since most banks in Switzerland require you for your last two tax returns when you qualify for a mortgage, any additional income you seek can help you qualify for a larger loan for your next home purchase.

Help at home

Running a household can often feel like a full-time job. Home-sharing in Switzerland is a great way to share some of the day-to-day tasks of running your home. Jobs such as housework, gardening, and cooking are often shared between hosts and guests. 

In some cases, especially with older hosts, guests pay a reduced rent in exchange for extra help at the house. For those who travel a lot, staying at home while traveling is an added advantage.
