I've been busy to follow up. Me and my friend thinking about investing in farming. We have between 10000 -20000 dollars but we can try to increase the capital money. Is it enough to buy a fsrming land?

not even remotly close. hell, you can hardly start a garden for that in chile.

$200,000 u.s. would get you sufficient land to go bankrupt trying to farm.

Try more like 2 million dollars to even be in the game to have a commercially viable farm in chile. even that might be a stretch now. That is if you knew what you were doing, and had sufficient experience to really stretch a relatively small piece of land to the max production.

I think you got the wrong country for your budget.

$10,000 - $20,000 dollars is a reasonable per-person figure to cover living expenses for a year in Chile, depending on your lifestyle. So yeah, it isn't remotely close to being enough to start a farming business.

that is what two foriegners, just arriving are going to need, just to find a property in chile. Assuming they care at all about the quality.

but, i have sneaky suspicion, there is more going on with this question than the OP is posting.

I sure hope they don't think they are going to "buy" residency or citizenship, by buying some property in chile. there is zero rights connected to immigrate or visit chile by owning property in chile.

the immigration scams related to chile are getting thick, now that the u.s., europe, and well just about everywhere else is cracking down. much of what is being shoveled on facebook, whatsapp, whatever is simply wrong to full on lies to lure people to buy whatever human trafficking crap they are pushing.

I thought he said he was married to a chilena? Or is that story suspect also.
There are two ways to be fooled.

One is to believe what isn't true;

the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

I think you left off a couple of zeros on your figures
I can't decide for you. You'll have to make up your own mind.

I am always amazed at how people think they are just going to buy a little piece of land and start a farm from scratch. only people that have never farmed, or even gardened, would even think that is possible.

farming is a very capital and labor intensive business. now a days it is a highly technical business. you need to know everything from engineering and chemistry, to basic gentics and biology. the land is typically the cheap part.

what i would say to anyone considering buying a farm, start a garden in your backyard that is say larger than 1000 square meters. If that goes well, now try to imagine how much time and money it will cost to scale that up to 100 hectares, 200, or a 1000.

hell, just owning a 100 or 200 hectares doing nothing cost money to own and maintain.

There is nothing suspicious going on. It is only a question about starting an investment. I am not in need of scam/ cheat or anything illegal.

Yes. I am married to a Chilean Legally. There are no zeros or false info. Not trying to buy a visa ..hmmmm what else?! 😀 ah no human traffic. It was only an idea of a friend he has experience in farming field and he wants to invest his money. My field is pharmaceutical, if anyone wants an advice about a medicine, I am ready to help and free advice 😊😀. Thanks for the admin's advice and others too.
