Should I buy or rent a home in Lugano?

Answer this Question

If you have not spent a lot of time in Lugano, you should rent before even thinking about buying. We asked expats there about the buy vs. rent decision...

"Buying a home in Lugano can be a great investment, as the city is known for its high quality of life and stunning views of the Alps. However, it is important to consider the cost of living in Lugano, which is higher than in many other parts of Switzerland. Renting a home in Lugano may be a more cost-effective option, as it allows you to enjoy the city without the long-term commitment of buying a home. Additionally, renting can give you the flexibility to move to a different part of the city or country if your circumstances change. Ultimately, the decision to buy or rent a home in Lugano should be based on your individual needs and financial situation," wrote a member who made the move to Lugano, Switzerland.
