The mortgage calculator helps you assess whether you can afford a mortgage for a specific property or not. The loan-to-value ratio may usually not exceed 80%, so you have to be able to afford 20% of the property value with your own funds. At the same time, the costs of the mortgage may not be higher than 33% of your gross income. Please note: The results are indications. Our advisors will gladly help you elaborate on your possibilities. Feel free to contact us!

Home-buying always requires careful financial planning and our Swiss Mortgage Calculator will help you understand the long-term financial implications of a mortgage loan commitment. You can swiftly calculate your mortgage costs including details of the loan-to-value ratio and affordability, the two most important elements of home financing.
The loan-to-value ratio compares the ratio between the amount of the mortgage loan and the value of the property. When determining the value of the property, the ‘lowest-value principle’ comes into play: the value used is whichever is the lower of the property valuation or purchase price. The loan-to-value ratio usually cannot exceed 80 per cent, i.e. you must finance at least 20 per cent of the value using your own resources. These could include, for example, savings, securities or inheritances. You can also call upon your retirement pension assets – however, the rules state that no more than 10 per cent of the property value can be financed by this method. Please visit our pension calculation page for more information
As regards affordability, the monthly financial burden resulting from your mortgage and house purchase may not exceed 33 per cent of your gross monthly income. In addition to the mortgage itself, your monthly running costs also include maintenance, incidental expenses and amortization payments. Because interest rates are often subject to strong fluctuation (see the MoneyPark Interest Rate Trends Tool), the affordability calculation is based on an imputed mortgage rate of 5 per cent. A further two percentage points are then usually added to cover estimated residual costs. You can find further information about affordability on our affordability calculator page.

In addition to the mortgage interest rate, the term (duration) of the amortized portion of the mortgage (usually up to a maximum of 65 to 70 per cent of the value of the property) is also a critical feature affecting the monthly repayments. The shorter the amortization term, the higher the monthly repayment, and vice versa. The calculation is based on the usual amortization term of 15 years. In any event, 65 per cent of the mortgage must be amortized (repaid) before you reach retirement age. For more information on amortization, please visit our amortization calculator page.
