Re: Housing market situation

Has anyone been keeping an eye out on the rental market? Apartment rent prices seem to have crashed all over Santiago. The last 2 buildings where I lived in Providencia and Las Condes now have apartments renting for 40% less than what I was paying.

Re: Owls in Southern Chile

Sorry tried to go through the science magize, but could not find the original article in english. However, bottom line makes sense. Due to the reduction in human noise, there is a bird boom on because the mating calls travel further and also reduced stress on the animals. https://www.emol.com/notic...

Re: Opening A Bank Account

Yeah, Scotia isn't a paradise either. The WebPay does not work in Safari (be it Mac or iPhone), they keep spamming me with SMS despite I replied "SALIR" to that more than once, of course also nagging me about insurances like BE. I have to go and pay my credit card by hand and there's like a 7-day w...

Re: Let us write a constitution for Chile.

The movement against a new constitution has done a survey, and it seems that they're losing by an 8% margin. That will happen only if all the Sipoapruebo memeing students will stay at home on the 25th. I've been following http://tresquintos.cl that combines all the available poll data and "Rechazo"...

Re: ¡¡ BancoEstado

Re the recent attack, they now believe that that Bank personnel working from home on unsecured or infected devices was how the baddies got into the system. Given that remote networking must have been set up very quickly, its not surprising that safety precautions were overlooked. But a Bank should ...

Re: Opening A Bank Account

Did anyone try to open an account after the pandemic began? I've started to issue "boletas de honorarios" recently, but since my income is higher than USD $2,350, I can't pay the goddamn 10.75% retenciones online. Webpay doesn't take my foreign cards, and the amount is over $200.000, so my Cuenta R...

Re: Argentina Economy, Election, and possible default?

"The legislation comes as the new, pro-business government in neighbouring Uruguay has made it easier for foreigners to obtain tax residency. "

Re: Opening A Bank Account

Definitely feeling for your tiagoabner... I am in the opposite boat right now. I have a cuenta vista with Itau (have you tried them?) that I am trying to close . Not easily done outside of Chile, without a valid carnet or residency of any kind. Meanwhile I get to continue paying $5.000 a month for ...
