SIPA crowd immo is a renowned Swiss company with an innovative concept based on participative real estate shareholding: each investor becomes a shareholder and co-owner of a fraction of an investment property by taking part in the capital of a public limited company.

In this way, we offer our customers a turnkey service that makes it easy to invest in real estate and benefit from attractive, stable returns (up to 7%), generated by rental income from our properties from CHF 49,000.

We have built up a network of trusted partners (lawyers, notaries, auditors, trustees, architects, developers, property managers, etc.), enabling us to offer unique investment opportunities that stand out from the crowd.

As a company incorporated under Swiss law, SIPA crowd immo has established a business model that complies with current regulations.

ampoule_faq Concept & Properties

SIPA crowd immo has created a new property investment model that is unique in Switzerland: participative property ownership. Its concept is based on mortgage-free investment with a high return.


Using our own funds and in partnership with our mortgage provider, we buy residential properties in Switzerland, selected according to a rigorous purchasing process.


Our aim is to give our shareholders access to property ownership and to generate attractive, stable returns from the rental income generated by our properties, for a minimum investment of CHF 49,000.

Thanks to its privileged network of real estate managers and unique connections with promoters, SIPA crowd immo makes exclusive properties accessible that would be difficult to identify by individuals.
The selection of properties is done through a strict selection process:


  1. Our teams criss-cross Switzerland in search of properties
  2. An in-depth financial analysis of the selected buildings is carried out internally
  3. An approved expert is mandated to conduct an independent valuation to ensure that the acquisition price corresponds to the market value
  4. A technical analysis is carried out by an independent expert to ensure the general condition of the building and to budget for potential work if necessary.


At the end of this procedure, our teams retain only 2% of the properties audited to offer them to investors.

For organizational reasons, we do not visit buildings. However, the address being communicated to potential investors, it is nevertheless possible to go there. The details relating to the building are available in a complete file downloadable from our page “properties“.

Our investors take part in our projects with a view to earning a return, not with a view to living there. However, if an investor wants to live there and a property is available, they can contact the property management company directly.
