Buy a small apartment in Chile – the return on your property will be twice as high as for a large apartment. Gross rental yields for medium-sized apartments in Santiago are now above 10% - that’s for apartments around 70 square meters.
These are the highest yields we have recorded for Chile during the Global Property Guide’s 6 year existence. Six years ago, when we first began to study Chile, the highest yields were to be found in larger houses in the North (Antofagasta, San Pedro de Atacama), and also in the Centre (Valparaiso, Viña del Mar) (though Santiago had a more classical “small = high yields, large = low yields” configuration).
Yet increasingly the realities now favour buying small properties rather than large, as during 2010, rents have moved up sharply for smaller apartments. Small residential property is where the ‘returns juice’ is strongly concentrated in Chile.
