Uruguay's Real Estate for Retirees, Expats and Digital Nomads

Real Estate in Uruguay

Uruguay is an increasingly attractive destination for foreigners wishing to buy property as they are granted the same rights and protections that Uruguayan citizens enjoy. You needn’t worry about obtaining permanent or temporary residence permits, all you require is a valid passport and evidence of funds in a bank account. As such, finding knowledgeable real estate agents who can converse fluently in English, alongside Escribano (buyer attorneys) should be your top priority when looking to invest here!

Are you curious about what Uruguay’s real estate market has to offer? The country is bursting with options, all tailored to suit any and every budget. Whether you’re after city apartments, beach lots, agricultural land or rural dwellings – there’s something for everyone!

Relocating to Uruguay? Apartments in Montevideo are typically the top real estate choice for expats, while family homes in beach towns like Punta del Este remain a favored option amongst foreigners. Investing in either provides you with lasting benefits and an exciting new life!

If you’re looking for a one-bedroom apartment, Pocitos in the Montevideo area has plenty of options available at an accessible price. A 430 square foot place in newer buildings averages around $147,000. On the other hand, Punta del Este is significantly pricier than most areas within Uruguay. You can still get two bedrooms and bathrooms close to Brava Beach for about $208,000; however it will cost more compared to elsewhere!
