    Default Rent in Santiago

    Moving to Santiago so I'm looking for an apt/small house to rent. Which are the safe areas and which should I avoid? Need a quiet area and my budget is 10,000 pesos.

    I live in El En Sueno, Santiago, an older established area, safe, with older but nice homes.
    You shouldn't have to much trouble in that price range, maybe 1 or 2 thousand a month more, max....
    Avenida Francia is the main street that runs through this neighborhood............
    Been here a few years and I have never had a problem...............
    2 minute walk to 5 different colmados, butcher with fresh meat, excellent bakery, pharmacy, EMI taxi stand, conchos.........
    5 minute walk to the Monument, 5 minute taxi ride to the Metro Bus Line, and a 1 minute walk to a great BBQ stand.
    A very convenient and safe area.............
    If interested in this area, PM me for more details...........

    I work from home so I need reliable orange internet connection with minimal luz blackouts. Live with my spouse and mom. Quiet area day and night is a must.

    To make sure you have electricity you will need to invest in a power inverter (inversor). There is no way around that.

    You can find a quiet area but for RD$10,000 you'll be hard pressed to find a 3 bedroom. A 3 bedroom in a decent area with some noise will be in that price range for sure, probably one bathroom though.

    For more reliable electricity get a place with an inverter or get one.

    For better internet get orange AND tricom or get an orange USB to cellular as back up.

    For quiet go to another country.

    Where do you live now?

    Electricity service comes with a predicted level of availability A thru D I think. A is most available. With the circuit number you can use the Edenorte web site to determine availability and average usage for the area.

    Pretty much so.......
    The one thing EdeNorte likes to do, almost daily.........
    Is turn the power off, on, off, on, off on, in 5 second increments........
    Like they are purposely trying to burn up your appliances.........
    The one pulling the switch must be getting kickbacks from the store chains.........
    The house I am in is properly grounded, so far so good, nothing has been destroyed.........

    ^^^^^But a small UPS solves that.

    So it's not completely necessary to invest in an inverter setup.
