Property Captain - The real estate matching platform
Does your home match your dream home? Property Captain is the first smart real estate matching platform with the most comprehensive range of properties in Switzerland. Through special matching algorithms and the calculation of a Dream Score, Property Captain brings together interested tenants as well as owners with suitable properties. In addition, we offer independent home ownership and housing-related services, such as a free property valuation tool.
As an independent financing broker, Property Captain finds the right financing solution quickly and easily. As a customer, you benefit from a transparent and competent comparison of the terms and conditions of over 120 financing partners and our 20 years of experience.
Partnership with brokers
Via the Property Captain Cockpit, our broker network has access to comprehensive data on lead acquisition, prospective buyers as well as the real estate market and individual properties. More than 200 partners already rely on the Property Captain Cockpit to optimise their customer acquisition.
Rent2Buy - Innovative financing model for home ownership
With the Rent2Buy financing model available on the Property Captain real estate matching platform, we offer you the opportunity to move into your dream home now and buy it later, without a down payment upfront. With this innovative rent-to-buy concept, you acquire a right to buy which secures the option to purchase your dream property within the next two to ten years. This allows you to move into your new home right away as a tenant, paying standard market rent while saving up the funds needed to purchase the property at a later date for a predefined price. At the same time, Rent2Buy opens up a new segment of the real estate market for qualified real estate investors.
