Built-up property prices are surprisingly low at around US$1,000 - US$1,200 per sq. m.

But the rents which properties will produce are also low. A 150 sq. m. property costing US$180,000 might typically rent for around US$700 per month. This is equivalent to a yield of 4.7%. Larger properties produce lower yields, as is typical in most places.
