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. On what comunas? By late August I looked for 3B ap...

This doesn't even makes sense.. if anything the AFP would be used to finance a public pension scheme, not "projects".

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

Venerable Sirs, please do not argue here regarding these issues... my only message was that the language and the tone of the official media has changed, and changed dramatically, about this "Swedish approach". From the extremely negative -- to these quoted ones, published in the recent couple of da...

Re: Housing market situation

So, I entered today on remates macal for some brief minutes. Auctioned appartments in better areas of Santiago still at same price as the normal market. I guess I will never understand why remates in Santiago don't include the factor "auction" discount.

Re: Too good to be true?

we had a conversation with an executive at Santander some time ago. he basically said Santander will probably never accept foreigners without residency ever again, because they got burned badly by foriegners running up massive debts, bouncing checks, etc, then skipping the country. When I arrived i...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

Does anyone know of reinfection stats? I would guess that Chile being one of the countries with higher % infected against total population would be a good case study.

Re: Housing market situation

I did a quick round on portal inmobiliario today and there are almost no new appartments for sale here in Providencia. Its definitely a renters market in the big city. :)

Re: Housing market situation

The main testemony of this "La Tercera" article didn't followed the rules, he requested loans in different banks for 12 appartments at the same time. This is maybe.. illegal? It's a shame the system allows this to happen. Didn't make my comment very clear, but I wasn't sympathising so much with thi...
