haole wrote:First I am in my late 50. I would need to start a small business in Chile to live there. Just to start let's say I need to earn $40,000 a year. In the states I own two small businesses, my wife an I run both, no employees. They are our only income.The following are business I could try, things I have some experience in.
1. Small engineering Co. PLC programming, control systems, wonderware.
2. House and apartment rentals. if I buy a rental property for $100,000 what can I rent it for? $1000/month would be excellent. $500/month is what we get here.
3. Import Export. My wife and i imported jewelry and slippers to the states for years.
4. Thai restaurant, we have never done this, but the wife has the background.
5. Farming, ranching, when i was very little my Dad was a farmer, i remember some. maybe beef cattle, not as much work.
6. English teacher, tutor.
Any other ideas?

Licenced? You don't even have to be competent to practice the trades in Chile.

But what about apartment or hosue rentals. what is the ratio rent/price. A 1% ratio would mean buy for 100,000 and rent for 1000 a month. If you can get loans in the local peso it might be great, inflation eats loans. Any info?
If you are an ME maybe you should look into opportunities there? There is ME work in the mining industry where non-chilenos are often found. Several Canadian employers in the country.
