The problem i see with much of chilean population, both good and bad, is such a small percentage of chileans have ever travelled outside of chile. Never mind lived outside of chile.

I still regularly run in to chileans that have never been on an airplane. If they have left the country at all, it is a short trip to argentina, peru, or miami for a week. "well traveled" chileans, might make it as far as new york. A tiny, tiny percent of the country have traveled and lived somewhere else for more than a week.

So, they fail to apreciate what chile has accomplished, and also fail to recognize where chile is failing.

The number one best settled / adjusted / succesful group of expats we see move tochile, also tend to be the most traveled group. Part of that is they see the opertunities in chile, but perhaps are also better equipped to adapt to the problems.

Buying land in Chile is incredibly easy and straight forward with the right lawyer to make sure it's done properly, just follow the steps properly, that's why you should always get professional advice.
Its certainly a lot easier to buy property in Chile as a non resident than it is in New Zealand (NZ was quite easy for non residents until the populists got voted in there in 2017 and they changed it last year) NZ did have trouble with what they wanted to do and had to exclude a few countries that they had free trade agreements with , what I understand you can still buy small plots in NZ and build new, but buying existing housing stock not so easy. Take from that what you like, but Chile has a business/foreign investor friendly govt and a lot of free trade agreements, and the way things move here, I can't see many issues, especially with the urbanisation of the population, there will be no buyers for rural land in years to come if non residents were to be excluded.

That was an admin delete. Must have been a spammer or a competitor trolling for business.

One is to believe what isn't true;

the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

it was a spammer out of algeria, parroting / copying previous posts, using an inactive thread, in an attempt to slip through new user filters and not be deleted immediately. If they get a few posts under their belt, then on most forums they can come back later and spam away.

unfortunatly for them i am the new user filter, and recognized the post they copied, and a new user resurrecting a dead thread is an instant red flag.

To not have their account instantly deleted they better have something really interesting to say, and say it in the first two sentences.

This is so true, I hadn't thought of this specifically before, but when I think about the expats I know that are well settled and adjusted...it is a 100% match that they have all been well traveled for various reasons.
