What is the average cost of housing in Punta del Este?

Answer this Question

If you are thinking about moving to Punta del Este, cost of living in probably a key consideration. Expats commented about the cost of housing...

"The cost of all utilities is higher than in the United States. Real estate taxes are much less. Buying a car is much much more expensive because of the import tax but the import tax seems to stay with the car so the retained value is high. Gasoline is the same as in Europe which is high compared to the U.S. And Punta in general is not cheap. The reason to live in Punta del Este is because it is a good way to live, that is, the food is fresh, the air and water are clean, it is beautiful, the beaches are wonderful, the people are welcoming, and you can live as you cannot in Europe or the U.S. any longer. What I mean is that the cost of help is affordable. People services are available and affordable, whether that is having your clothes tailored, going to the doctor/dentist, finding a gardener, a chef, cleaning services . . . You can afford to live well and the people providing the services are ahppy to do it. There is no class struggle in Uruguay," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Punta del Este, Uruguay.

"The cost of housing in Punta del Este is generally quite high, with prices ranging from mid-range to luxury. The average cost of a one-bedroom apartment in the city is around $1,000 USD per month, while a three-bedroom apartment can cost up to $2,500 USD per month. Prices for larger homes and villas can be significantly higher," commented one expat who made the move to Punta del Este, Uruguay.
