The residential market in the Lausanne region eased slightly in 2020. The vacancy rate rose from 0.7% to 1% in the agglomeration and from 0.35% to 0.5% in the city. Rent moved sideways for the most part, but is still high compared with Switzerland as a whole. On the rental market, demand remained high – this led to shorter marketing times in the Lausanne region as a whole. The sharp rise in sale prices in the region subsided in 2020. However, high demand resulted in price increases in the city of Lausanne. Living space is likely to continue to be sought after in the Lake Geneva region in the coming years. As a result, new offerings, such as in Lausanne West, are likely to be absorbed quickly.
