Our Mission

Free, simple and efficient - flatfox is the real estate portal that digitizes and simplifies the rental process.

The topic of housing concerns everyone. Around 60% of households in Switzerland live in rented apartments. And tenants change around 400,000 times a year. Until recently, the rental process involved a lot of bureaucracy concerning both tenants and landlords.

With flatfox, this is history. flatfox has set itself the goal of transferring this process into today's digital world and making the application process as simple as possible. With great passion for technology and conviction for the idea, the flatfox portal was created in 2012. At flatfox, the entire rental process from initial search to final signature is digital.

Free of charge

The flatfox service is free of charge for private customers, new tenant seekers and apartment seekers. We also offer a Business free model for corporate customers and commercial organisations with a maximum of 5 free listings during a 30-day time period. For advanced functions such as interfaces with existing systems, consolidation of communication and a fully digitized rental process, the price models Business flex and Business fix are available.


The rental process has never been easier. Flat-hunting is now possible in the same way as booking holidays, ordering food or a taxi. The interested party can apply for their dream property quickly and easily using an online form with an integrated debt extract order. All communication between the tenant and the landlord is displayed in flatfox Messenger, contact details and viewing appointments are no longer communicated publicly.


The entire rental process is digital. There are no more media breaks in the process, the data is entered online and displayed in all relevant systems. Compared to the previous system, this significantly increases efficiency and saves a lot of time.


flatfox, the first Swiss startup in the PropTech sector, was founded in 2012 by Bernhard Mäder, Mattia Regi, Silvan Spross and Fabian Stutz. With the founders' full-time entry in 2014, the company began professionalizing its offer, focusing on digital process mapping and bundling of communication in the rental process. In 2017, flatfox moved to the new company headquarters in the Zurich Binz area. The most recent financing round in June 2018 was supported by Investis, Helvetia, Ringier Digital Ventures and the previous investor Swiss Life.

We are open for exciting contacts and the expansion of our network.
