December 16, 2021
Savills Ski Report has analysed ski property worldwide for 15 years. In terms of growth and investment potential, the year-round destination of Andermatt is the most promising resort in the Alps. In a comparison of 44 destinations worldwide, Andermatt Swiss Alps took fifth place in the Savills prime price league. Andermatt scored very well on resilience to climate change.
There are numerous factors which can influence growth and property sales in a successful destination. First and foremost, there must be a residential property market. That market must also be open to foreign investors and the necessary leisure activity infrastructure (winter and summer) must be in place. In this ranking, Andermatt takes the top spot in Switzerland. This means that according to the recently published Savills Ski Report, the year-round destination of Andermatt is the most promising resort in the Alps.
Prime price property
Savills, a property agent in the prime price segment, ranked prime price property in 44 destinations worldwide. Among these destinations, Andermatt took fifth place in Switzerland. Courchevel took first place. Jeremy Rollason, Head of Savills Ski and Director for France, Switzerland and Austria, says: “Virtually all ski resorts in the Alps and North America have experienced strong price growth and transaction volumes. Competition for prime property is fierce.” This is clearly reflected in property sales in Andermatt Swiss Alps.
Savills ranked a total of 61 ski resorts globally on the indicators of reliability, snowfall, season length, temperature and altitude. Andermatt – surely thanks in part to the reliability of its snow cover – comes in in 20th place worldwide and in fifth place among the Swiss winter destinations.
