You want to realize the dream of your own home? Then plan the long-term financing of your own four walls with a mortgage from AXA now! Calculate your personal interest costs and choose a mortgage that you can afford over the long term.
In order to finance your own home appropriately, you can choose from two different mortgage products from AXA: a fixed-rate mortgage or a variable-rate mortgage. Do you prefer stability or flexibility? It’s up to you!
1. Fixed-rate mortgage
You prefer to know your costs in advance? Then the fixed-rate mortgage is the right product for you. With a fixed-rate mortgage, you fix the interest rate and the term when you take out the mortgage. Hence, you will always pay the same mortgage interest, but cannot benefit from any fall in mortgage interest rates. You can choose a term of between 1 and 15 years, depending on the loan amount.
The minimum amount of a fixed-rate mortgage is CHF 100,000.
3. Variable-rate mortgage
The variable-rate mortgage is ideal for homeowners who expect interest rates to fall but can accept the risk that rates may rise. This means that with a variable-rate mortgage you are not tied to a fixed interest rate or a specific term.
The product is also suitable for homeowners who would like to remain financially flexible (e.g. when planning to sell their own home).
The financial cost of your own home should be affordable over the long term. The running costs of your own home should not exceed one third of your gross annual income. An example is included here of how you can properly estimate your financial options.

AXA uses the 20:80 rule: You invest at least 20% of the purchase price of your own home yourself. You may finance a maximum of 80% using borrowed capital (1st and 2nd mortgages). The higher the portion of your own invested capital, the lower your interest payments.
To benefit from financing by AXA, you must provide at least 20% of the purchase price of the property from your own assets. These may not derive from an advance withdrawal from Pillar 2 or from other loans. Pledging Pillar 2 assets is not permitted.
Mortgage repayment is normally split across two different mortgages:
The running costs for your own home should not exceed one third of your gross annual income. These costs include the interest on the 1st and 2nd mortgages, the ancillary costs and the repayments for the 2nd mortgage.
The minimum mortgage amount is CHF 400,000.
Here, a minimum mortgage amount of CHF 800,000 applies.
Your heirs must accept a sudden loss of earnings if you die. This loss of earnings puts the mortgage at risk. In a worst-case scenario, your home would have to be sold. With whole life insurance you can prevent this, as it allows your heirs to reduce the mortgage debt. The interest payments from the remaining income thereby remain affordable.
