Zurich home hunting now genuine lottery
Finding a new apartment in Zurich is now so competitive – it has been turned into a lottery, literally.
Home hunters are asked to sign up to an app being run by the city. Thirty people will be chosen at random to go and visit the available property.
The city has contributed CHF 125,000 to get the app up and running.
For those who don’t have access to the internet, nor a smart phone they can register by post. But the city says they don’t expect that to be many.
