San Salvador is not an expansive city, and buying an apartment there is not pricey. An apartment would typically cost around US$1,200 per square metre (US$115 per square foot).

Gross rental yields are a generous 8.5%, which means it generally makes much more sense to buy than to rent, and to be a landlord than a tenanct.
