Residential properties: marketing professionals

Optimising budgets, letting faster, avoiding vacancies

The housing market in Switzerland is characterised by regional differences, with high demand in the cities and a tendency towards more vacancies in rural areas. At the same time, requirements for living space are constantly changing. In this situation, property owners appreciate a strong marketing partner. We are happy to be that partner for you.

Demographics in Switzerland are undergoing constant change. Immigration levels fluctuate, the population is ageing and new living concepts such as assisted accommodation for seniors and even the trend towards working from home are changing the expectations placed on residential properties and their marketing. Regional differences, government rules and regulations are additional challenges for investors, property owners and tenants.

As your chosen partner, Livit can overcome these challenges: we know the property market in Switzerland and the specific qualities of all its regions and devise individual marketing strategies for every rental property.

First-time rental: dedicated website and specific mix of measures

First-time rentals have special marketing requirements, because apartments in the construction or renovation phase cannot be viewed in person. Specially designed strategies are required, such as visualisations, virtual apartment viewings or dedicated websites with comprehensive information about the project. A specific mix of advertising measures is part of the scope of marketing services at Livit.

Our residential property professionals design the entire process efficiently, including the use of tools such as MiMo, the digital application process for first-time rental properties: Prospective tenants immediately gain an overview of which apartments are still available and can apply directly via the platform for their chosen apartment. As the owner, you benefit from a high-quality representation of your property and fast, targeted marketing.

Re-letting: ready for the next tenant right away

When the tenant gives notice on an apartment, we immediately re-advertise it and look for the appropriate tenant to succeed them. We support the current and the new tenant from inspection to hand-over of the keys. 

We improve the quality of advertisements with digital processes. A dashboard developed in-house by Livit shows what relevant marketing information is available, and what is still missing. This ensures that your ads are comprehensive, attractive and representative. Find out more about the Livit Advertisement Check.

The Livit Demand Score indicates which marketing measures are relevant to your property, and in which form, so that apartments can be let quickly. This allows us to adapt our chosen measures – and hence your investment – to the predicted re-letting period. For properties that are easy to let, these will be only the most essential measures. For properties which are harder to let, we plan a mix of measures at an early stage in order not to waste valuable time. Find out more about the Livit Demand Score here.
