The increase in supply and development and the refurbishing of existing supply is exerting downward pressure on rents, but yields are still quite high at around 8.6% to 10%.

Rents are around US$6 to US$8 per square metre (sq. m) per month (around Ugandan Shilling (UGS) 11,635 to UGS14,300). So the rent for a 200 sq. m. property would be around UGS2.5 million (US$1,358) per month.

Selling prices very widely from between UGS1.5 million and UGS10 million (US$815 to US$5,432) per sq. m.

There are no serious issues of security, power or water supply in the established expatriate areas, but it always helps to have a back-up generator.
