Hundreds line streets in Zurich to look at house up for rent
500 people lined the streets in Zurich earlier this week just to visit a house which is available to rent.
The 6 room family home is being rented out by the city. It’s in a prime location on Gablerstrasse, close to the lake – for CHF 2,500 a month.
The massive interest in the property reflects the high demand in Switzerland’s largest city.
A spokesman for the property services for the city of Zurich, Kuno Gurtner, told the Blick newspaper that it is a nice house, but they didn’t expect the level of interest.
As the house is being rented by the city, the successful tenants will be chosen by needs. Larger families will be prioritized and those earning a big salary will not be successful.
