Re: Can you afford to live in Chile????

Based on my (limited) observations, the cost of living seems plenty higher in Chile than in US: Wages seem to be about 1/3 of what is paid to comparable workers/professionals in the US. Case in point: Chain saw - double the price (converted to dollars) in Chile. Wages - 1/3 of US. So on that particu...

Re: The trade wars, they have begun

Thought you would be giving some introduction to your new avatar. I liked the old one; it seemed more consistent with your benevolent live self.

Re: Buying a car for 12mil without a bank account

Toyota Yaris good choice. Tons of them around and good reputation. Kias are not real solid construction. I have had good (albeit short) experiences with Chevy Sparks as rental cars in Chile.

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

I agree completely that over-lighting, and especially with those ugly Chilean street light, ruins the ambience of the neighborhood. Your idea of 1 -2 meter lights, especially at intersections, is hugely more appealing. There's a lot of nice stuff on the north american market. By the way, can you pro...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

The location and quality of your parcelacion make it attractive to norteamericanos and Europeans, many of who might be passing through the area as tourists. Those people won't know the ins and out of buying land in Chile, like: Chile's foreigner-friendly ownership circumstances, low property taxes, ...

Re: New visitor from California

I think Chile's markets could use cocktail tomatoes - the ones that are maybe 3.5cm diameter, a little smaller than a golf ball. Here in the US they have taken on very well. They have excellent flavor in any season and seem to ship and hold well. There is even a successful commercial grower in Maine...

Re: Chile's Place in Latin America

I think immigration flows could be number 8 or 9. Not specifically referencing Chile's experience, but it has been a major factor in destabilizing third world countries in plenty of places.

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

Another advantage to the Matt's parcelacion is that each lot has frontage on a parcelacion road. There are no "flag lots." These are often found in other penny-pinching subdivisions: lots located behind road-fronting lots, with a narrow driveway easement for access. This saves the developer money on...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

Matt - it is worth mentioning that you revised your original parcelacion layout from a grid to something more pleasing to the eye, that takes natural contours and the forest into account. Also reworked the entrance to the main road to improve visibility and safety. This is a conscientious developer,...
