Re: Housing market situation

I'm not saying it was perfect before, but we definitely didn't go through as much bs with the banks as when we bought the apartment in the first place. Yeah it's possibly worse now, bullshit is the middle name for the banks, you must have struck it lucky first time around and had someone competent ...

Re: Housing market situation

There is an mega tsunami of foreclosures and auctions coming. even setting aside the crisis we are in, no one has been able to move foreclosures and collections through the courts for months now.

Re: Housing market situation

Just to give a bit of our experience selling real estate during the "estallido"... We entered into contract with our current tenant to sell our apartment in Nunoa at X price in CLP at the beginning of October 2019. Peso was at 715. Because we are selling from abroad we had to go to the Chilean cons...

Re: Any push back?

The main issue I see is a massive lack of foresight. Like, no shit Sherlock: of course people will be out of money when they are under lockdown. It's not like most countries in the world have implemented income support programs in the last two months. Heck, we've been talking about it on this forum...

Not sure how burning a bus helps people pu...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

Are you guys paying full salary to your nanas? We've paid full salary in the first month, but we are now paying half salary for our nana to stay home. Ours was only casual/part time , 3 days a week. Paid her the first couple of weeks , not paying her anything now, and she is not actually available ...

Re: chile's migration crisis

And given the current state of the world, I think the era of mass migration has come to an end. I think you are right , for the time being, govts may even start sending migrants back , however it will be a temporary halt, who knows maybe 5 years . But it will be back, its been going on since the 18...

Re: Any push back?

In retrospect I should have just handed them some pesos. That's probably all they wanted. In the moments of panic I just got out of there. I guess the Carbineros just let it happen. "They're just kids blowing off some steam. Just let um go". Bizaroland. Yeah retrospect is great but never there when...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

sorry, you are one sick, twisted, racistist DUMB FUCKING RED NECK HICK if you think Dumb Jackass Trump could possibly do that. The guy is just an actor reading his lines. His only real job is to elicit emotion out of people. You're giving him too much credit. That is my point. They are crappy actor...
