Re: Worth Getting Citizenship?

As I have mentioned before, out of desperation I went to Talca during the chaos with Haitians in 2018. The PDI man didnt like itand said I should do it in the city where I lived. I pointed out that in the webpage , no mention is made of any such requirement, so he did the cert, but was not at all ab...

Re: Worth Getting Citizenship?

I managed to think of a lot of arguments in favour of getting citizenship (see my original post), but few if any have much substance in my opinion. There is only really one good argument against doing it, and that is the longwinded time consuming boring, annoying process that will take time away fr...

Re: Worth Getting Citizenship?

When I was going through the nightmare of renewing my PR last year, which resulted in my having to go to Talca to avoid sleeping on the street outside the PDI place in Santiago, the PDI man asked why I didnt just get citizenship and done with to avoid any further nightmares in 5 years time. I checke...

Re: Buying a land with water drainage passing through

I’m certainly no expert on such things, but cant understand why you’d want a piece of land where, if it rains a lot, you’ll possibly have water all over the place ? It’s the season when nothing grows, so no water is needed. I live in Chicureo but not up in the hills, and see it to be a negative to h...

Re: Transferring money

If you only transfer small amounts, you will always get hit hard with costs; it’s always been like that. Remember that some banks have a minimum charge and others have a sliding scale. They dont want small business as it’s just not worth it. From my own experience , it makes a big difference which C...

Re: Tenants disappeared during the night

Problems with tenants is just something that you have to accept as an owner. All businesses involve risks of one kind or another. Every time a company sells to another on credit, it takes the risk of not getting paid. If you are averse to risks, you should put your money in a bank, where in the long...

Re: Housing market situation

If you're planning to buy with cash vs. a mortgage, let them know right away in your initial email. That usually puts you in the front of the queue. That’s exactly what I do. In certain high demand areas, I think the corredora finds an interested party, then concentrates on him, before moving on to...

If they dont reply it is probably already sold or at least an offer accepted.
Sorry, that’s not my experience.
