The Avobis Real Estate Index helps to analyse and classify the development of real estate properties in Switzerland over time. This makes it possible to gain a quick monthly overview of the Swiss real estate market. In this way, the Real Estate Index helps to make sustainable and well-founded decisions.

The Avobis Real Estate Index is based on an analysis model that calculates asking prices and asking rents for properties in Switzerland, broken down into houses and flats, and presents them in a regional context. The figures and trends obtained are supplemented by comments from Avobis specialists.

Methodology Avobis Real Estate Index

For the analysis model, Avobis uses advertisements that are placed daily on various real estate websites in Switzerland. The data from the advertisements are cleaned and form the basis for the analysis model.

In order to make property and price trends comparable over time, the Avobis Property Index is based on six typical residential properties:

  • Flats 2 – 2.5 rooms, 40 to 55 m2
  • Flats 3 – 3.5 rooms, 70 to 90 m2
  • Flats 4 – 4.5 rooms, 90 to 120 m2
  • House 4-4.5 rooms, 90 to 150 m2
  • House 5-5.5 rooms, 120 to 180 m2
  • House 6-6,5 rooms, 150 to 215 m2

For these properties, metrics are calculated on the first day of a month for all advertisements placed in the last 28 days – after cleaning, validation and plausibility checks.
