The power of telling your story | LAURA LAZZARINO
After studying 16 real estate projects in Santiago, the authors show that the high price of housing is explained by the steep rents obtained by investors. Internationally, a return of 18% is normal and good, but the projects studied do not go below 40%. Thus, new housing is only within the reach of the richest in each commune. They argue that the State cannot stand by and watch prices rise and propose that it should regulate profitability. If this were 18%, they say, "properties would reduce their value by between 10% and 54%".
Today in Chile we are witnessing a housing crisis, the clearest representation of which is a deficit of 500 thousand units and purchase and rental prices that are increasingly out of reach of the pockets (see Central Bank report). In the previous column we critically reviewed the most frequent explanations for this crisis: lack of land and excessive regulations. And it was argued that the price problem should be linked to financial speculation. Here we will present new evidence to that effect.

the unequal distribution of social groups in the space of the city, which is expressed, for example, in neighborhoods of different social status. We speak in general of socioeconomic groups, neighborhoods of rich people, middle class, popular, etc. (Sabatini, 2006:5).
There are different and complex factors that generate segregation, ranging from cultural and sociological factors, where fear of the other, belonging and aspiration to a social group influence the formation of segregation. Other factors can be of an economic nature, ranging from the business point of view in terms of consumption spaces, where a distinction of social classes is produced, to those related to real estate dynamics, which offers different properties in different parts of the city, resulting in spatial fragmentation.
Likewise, it is important to mention that within this residential segregation, one of the most extreme modalities that are currently being produced are the gated communities (Sabatini, 2006). These gated communities have different names in Latin American countries[i], in the case of Mexico they are called gated communities, and are developments aimed at the high-income population; however, gated communities are also currently being built for the middle and lower economic classes.
