So here is an interestig one. How many chileans have second homes?

I find that number a bit hard to buy. I think more commen, especially with new property tax with a one time life deduction, is that people tend to spread property among family members.

For example, husband owns the house a family lives in. Wife owns the vacation home. Perhaps an adault kid owns a rental property, that mom and dad bought. The tax structure just lends itself to hiding who really owns a property, or at least not easy to troll the irs data to determine who has more than one property.

That is aside from the tendency to place rentals in to companies to get deductions on running the place or similar benfits
