The capital city of Asuncion is the only place where property rights are secure enough to make it advisable to buy.

Yields are low however. A 100 sq. m. apartment may cost only US$40,000, but it might rents for as little as US$70 per month. This would give the landlord a very low yield, at 2.1%.

Houses in Asuncion tend to be worth around US$500 to US$600 per sq. m., and they rent for around US$1.50 to US$2.70 per sq. m. per month. Rental yields on houses are therefore around 3.5% to 6%.
