Chile Property Investment For Sale
"A thriving economy with a strong property market"
Chile is a land of astounding natural beauty and diversity. As a long strip of land that runs down the whole of South America, it is blessed with a long coast and the splendour of the Andes mountain range. Chile’s highly diverse geography moves from the mineral rich desert of the north through the central river valley which includes the famous red wine vineyards and historic capital Santiago to the forests, lakes and volcanoes of the south. Due to the considerable length of the country Chile’s climate is also one of extremes from the hot and arid north to the cold south close to the Antarctic. Most of the country however has a cool and temperate climate.
One of South America’s strongest economies, Chile has one of the highest sustained growth rates of any country in the world and has numerous trade agreements with over 60 countries worldwide. With a healthy export industry which includes large copper reserves, Chile is one of the world’s largest wine producing countries and one of the few countries which was only slightly affected by the global financial crisis, largely due to the government’s strong fiscal discipline which has resulted in a sustained budget surplus since 2000. However Chile is not without some problems and due to its complicated labour laws has perennial high unemployment issues.
As Chile has shown continued growth in its economy so has it demonstrated a healthy and buoyant property market, particularly around the capital, Santiago.
