Re: RUT needed to buy property?

Has there been a recent change to the RUT process? I obtained a temporary RUT from SII so I could purchase my apartment...but when I obtained my temporary visa and picked up my carnet, from Registro Civil, it had a new RUT number (which did not change when I became a permanent resident) :? Once you...

Re: The Trump Administration

You really think Trump with a hooker on video would matter at all? That'd matter about as much as Clinton with another intern. John Hyre I don't think nothing, with a double negative, he,he,hee, but Mr Putin thinks it can have him De-elected if Trump does not heed to Russia's demand.. Trump, the ho...

Stop the presses. The head of codelco just had an explosive sent to his house today. I think his wife and house keeper were injured. Codelco, although not loved by many, is not currently in any labour disputes. It might be pointed out that in the mining industry having licenses and skills in explos...

Re: Jumbo supermarkets.

All their brand name ham, cooked turkey, chorizos etc are very good . Jumbo chorizos used to be very good. But the last couple of times I bought them here in Concón, maybe three months ago, they were awful. They looked the same, but didn't fry up well, they just burnt like they were made of paper. ...

Re: Chile Peso 2017, starts at 665.29

My prediction is that apartment prices in less desirable locations will decrease in value by year-end. You'd have to be more specific before you can call that a prediction. Okay, they will fall by at least 10%. :) Sorry, that still doesn't sound like a "true prediction". Are you being a l...

A goodbye gift from the "liberal" US president: https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2017/01/obama-expands-surveillance-powers-his-way-out If Obama was a "progressive" (which he's not) he would not have authorized that executive order. :wink: Didn't Clinton call herself a progressive a...

Re: Chile Peso 2017, starts at 665.29

...My bet is that CLP is going to strengthen against USD over a year or two, global cataclisms notwithstanding. So maybe look at small liquid apartments instead of a less liquid house since apartments are more resistant to price weakness. A building is not a liquid asset. A liquid apartment is one ...

Re: Chile Peso 2017, starts at 665.29

I've been in chile since Oct 2008, and remember very well how much $450-$480 CLP exchange rates sucked! Though this sustained 600+ rate now has been chugging for awhile, and I'm starting to wonder if 600 might be a safe number to plan on for the next 1-2 years... Interesting info on house vs apartm...

Re: Chile Peso 2017, starts at 665.29

Regular car uses 2-4 kg of copper, an electrical car uses 18-25. Copper consumption per head is several times higher in industrial economies vs. China. World population is projected to grow by something like 20% by 2035. Have there been any major copper discoveries recently anywhere in the world? I...
