The Santiago Housing Market


We continued our house hunt this afternoon with little luck. Things, at the moment, are looking a little bleak but hopefully things will pick up. Either the houses are way out of our price range or are very far from school making transportation difficult.

The thing that is shocking to me is that there are 100s, literally hundreds, of brand new, empty houses in our area. They are all for sale but have been sitting empty since we arrived a year and a half ago.

PLUS, they are building 100s more! And that's not to mention the new apartments sprouting up.

I do not understand why these houses are being built when there are so many empty houses now. Someone isn't doing their homework.

Other than that, life is good. We have an extra long, 4 day weekend, which we will enjoy!

Hope you enjoy your Easter weekend!
