Answer this Question

If you have not spent a lot of time in Chile, you should rent before even thinking about buying. We asked expats there about the buy vs. rent decision...

"Buying a home in Chile can be a great investment, as the country has a stable economy and real estate market. However, it is important to consider the cost of living in Chile, as well as the cost of purchasing a home, before making a decision. Renting a home in Chile can be a more affordable option, as it allows you to live in the country without the long-term commitment of buying a home. Additionally, renting can provide more flexibility if you are unsure of how long you will be living in Chile. Ultimately, the decision to buy or rent a home in Chile should be based on your individual needs and financial situation," said another expat in Chile.
