About Entra Lagos and Puyehue --
Entra lagos is a small, but fully equipped tourism and agricultural driven town, with a population of around 10,000 people. There is a gas station, several grocery stores, hospital, and numerous smaller businesses. It acts as a gateway to the international boarder crossing to Argentina. The surrounding lakes (Lake Puyhue and Rapanco Lake) have been a traditional vacation spots for old money in the summers from Santiago and Argentina for generations.
Located on the same mountain as the 5 star Puyehue Hot Springs resort. Walking distance to the Puyehue National Park that contains wild hot springs, fly fishing, hiking, lakes, and rivers. There is a small hostile and restaurant just 2 km down the road from the property that is owned and operated by a young foreign couple. Several very good international level restaurants are located just 10-15 mins away on the international highway to Argentina.
Diverse wild life is common to the area because of proximity to the national park. Fox, Puma, hawks, rabbits, deer, wild boar, and many more species are common sites.
Approximately 30 mins from the boarder crossing for Argentina, about 3 hours to the Ski resort town of Bariloche Argentina. Bariloche is an excellent day trip from this property for both shopping and to visit the ski resorts outside the city.
Flights from the Osorno to Santiago are about 1.5 hours, more flight options are available through Puerto Montt airport. Direct international flights from Puerto Montt Airport to Buenos Aires, Argentina and points in Brazil are scheduled to begin in 2011.

Payment may be recieved in U.S. dollars, made in the U.S., but price is listed in UF (Chilean inflation indexed currency), payable in Chilean pesos, and at the prevailing exchange rate at the time of sale or payment.

NOTICE: This property is in the legal exclusion zone prohibiting Argentina nationals from purchasing within 20 km of the boarder. This exclusion for national security does not apply to nationals of other countries only those of Argentina.
Conflicts of Interest notice:
This property is a direct sale from the owners ( also owners of Spencer Global Chile and this site ). There is no real estate agent or commissions involved in this sale.
If required by a foreign buyer, we would be happy to assist with any general advice a foreigner may need to purchase in Chile from outside the country with such things as how  powers of attorney work in Chile, obtaining a IRS RUT numbers, and so on; however, please take in to consideration the obvious natural conflicts of interest involved. You should retain your own legal council to assist you with such things as conducting your own title search, contracts, and so on, as with any purchase in Chile. That said, we would be happy to assist your attorney, as we have special expertise in dealing with foreigners that most attorneys in Chile simply do not. It is in our interest also to facilitate as smooth a transfer as possible.
Transfer costs:
In the event of a sale, we will provide, as is the tradition in Chile, 50% of notary fees. All other cost such as title search, registry fees, and so on are the responsibility of the buyer in Chile.
Tentative Terms of direct seller Mortgage: 50% down, 36 monthly payments, 8% annual interest. As this is a direct sale, and we understand the issues of foreingers face with getting bank acounts and credit, we will consider any foreigner for a mortgage without regard to residency status in Chile.
The house is sold as is, with no warranties attached. We make no assertions about the state of the house for living, safety, or anything else. The structure appears to be fundamentally sound, in our opinion, with minimal investment of time and money it could be fully salvageable with some renovations for at least short-term, temporary use, or as perhaps a caretakers cabin. As it is now, it would at least serve as storage space if a buyer wished to build another structure.
There are two small creeks on the property. One, is a seasonal creek, and does seem to go dry during part of the summer months ( that is the creek located on the upper part of the property). The other creek (middle of the property) seems to flow very consistently all year around from our observations.
There is a hand-dug well on the property. The status or safety of the water is unknown.
We currently have a local caretaker that receives 20,000 pesos a month and is allowed to pasture no more than 20 animals at a time there. Continuing to use his services are optional, but he has proven to be very good at watching the place over several years with no problems. The animals keep the grass and vegetation in check.
As always, We would be happy to answer any questions you might have:
