Gross rental yields are moderate to good, at around 5.5% to 7.5%.  They are better on smaller houses and apartments, as is typical in most countries.  Bear in mind that these yields are gross, i.e., before costs and taxes, and so realistically net rental returns would normally be a couple of percentage points lower.

Rental yields in Montevideo have not changed much in recent years, though they are slightly lower than they were 10 years ago.
