Chile's housing market is recovering from VAT introduction, helped by low interest rates
by Global Property Guide
In January 2016, VAT of 19% was imposed on sales of properties in Chile by "habitual sellers" such as real estate companies, or persons who sell their properties in less than a year.
The VAT on new properties added around 4% to 11% to the price of new properties, making older homes more attractive.
House prices in Greater Santiago fell by 1.8% in 2016, due to the implementation of VAT and weak economic growth. Nation-wide home sales dropped by 34.3% to 53,309 units, with the biggest price declines for mid- and lower-priced homes (demand for high-end properties remained robust). Construction also fell, with housing starts down almost 36% in 2016.
However the market is now bouncing back. During the year to Q1 2017 home sales in Greater Santiago rose by 46% to 7,324 units, according to the Chilean Chamber of Construction (CChC).

Here's a Chart of the World's Cities by Price Per Square Foot
by Sarah Firshein
Over at credit/debit-analysis firm Credit Sesame, they've compiled a list of cool cities and outlined, clearly and simply, how much it costs to live there in American dollars. The group is bookended by Paris at the highest end ($3,287 per square foot omgareyoukidding) and Santiago, Chile at the lowest end ($180 per square foot); in the U.S. alone, NYC ranks most expensive ($1,068 per square foot) and Houston brings up the rear ($54 per square foot). The Wall Street Journal further breaks it down: "After all," writes real estate editor Matthew Strozier, "a homeowner in Dubai could sell and have basically enough to buy homes in Houston, Atlanta and Phoenix." In other words, buying domestically is cheap, right? Tell that to the guy who eventually scoops up the penthouse at new NYC luxury building Setai Fifth Avenue: that sliver of the good life is asking $4,067 per square foot.
