Investing in the Alps is still a good idea

With the "Swiss Insight" report out today from Knight Frank the headline says it all; Investing in the Alps is still a good idea.

"Switzerland remains one of Europe's most stable and prosperous economies, an important 'safe-haven' for wealthy investors. Although new laws and taxes introduced some uncertainty to the market in 2012, luxury sales volumes have held firm, driven in part by stronger demand from Euro-based buyers"   Kate Everett-Allen, Knight Frank

At The Oxford Ski Company we are finding our services to help guests invest in property across the Alps is very much on the increase.

We have a dozen guests looking to invest at present in a variety of resorts. As a rule guests have tended to favour France when enquiring in the past year based on the strong Swiss Franc and the legalities of buying in the main Swiss ski resort.

"I think what is exciting is that there are more  opportunities than ever to buy whether it be a new build, plot of land,  existing chalet or some super luxury penthouse apartments. There is  something to suit everyone depending on your needs"  Rupert Longsdon, Founder, The Oxford Ski Company.
