The utilization of building and zoning regulations is thus checked and maximally utilized for the respective property. At the same time, a profitability calculation is prepared.

The results of an analysis are as individual as the respective properties. These can include: better utilization of the land and the building, attic conversion or addition, with addition or conversion, energy renovation, renovation for the purpose of modernization, a replacement new building or the timely sale of the property with the appropriate marketer partner.

Calculation of profitability

In the process, the different investments and returns, for the respective property, are compared with each other. In the profitability calculation, the purchase price of the land, the construction and investment costs are thus included. Depending on the purchase price of the property, already there can be some impact on the return. Also more detailed information can be seen in the calculation, such as the heated and unheated area of the object, net living space, marketing costs, the income calculation for the rent, the building value and much more.

Example calculation gross rental return:

100 x annual net rent / property purchase price = gross rental yield in %.

Example calculation for gross rental yield:

400.000 CHF purchase price + 40.000 CHF additional costs = 440.000 CHF
Net rent per year = 20,000
CHF 20,000 / CHF 440,000 x 100 = 4.54 percent gross rental return

Example calculation net rental yield:

  1. Purchase price + incidental purchase costs
  2. Net cold rent - (annual) administration costs - (annual) maintenance costs = annual net income
  3. Annual net yield / investment costs

Example calculation for net rental return

400.000 CHF purchase price + 40.000 CHF additional costs = 440.000 CHF
20,000 CHF net cold rent - 800 CHF administration - 750 CHF maintenance = 18,450 euros annual net income
18,450 CHF annual net income / 440,000 CHF investment costs x 100 = 4.19 percent net rental return
