Living cost

Argentina is very expensive now and the costs of renting a 4 bedroom house would shock you . I would say the minimum for a 4 bedroom house furnished today would be close to US$ 3.500 or more . If you are from Korea you will find most items in Argentina are much more expensive including, food , clothing, electronics, furnishings , etc etc . To give you an idea prices in us dollars since 2005 have gone up over 400% . A meal for one that would have cost you US$ 10 maximum atm now is US$ 40.

You probably think since the rent is high, it's good to become a landlord. No, that 4 bedroom apartment has a monthly expense of $1500 dollar or more. Everyone is screwed. But if you have to come to Argentina, you have to.

Are you talking about 2 year contracts for Argentines or short term rental prices?

When I lived in Argentina about 5 years ago, my then Argentinian girlfriend paid 400 USD (2 year contract) vs me 1000 USD (short term), both a single bedroom.

I wonder who would be paying 3500 USD, not many I guess. I will be back for 3 months in September and hope to find a single bedroom apartment in Palermo for around 1000 USD.

IMHO, the prices quoted by Perry are too high. Prices in dollars have gone up "only" 250% since 2001, when they were ridiculously low. Anyway, Argentina is wildly expensive now. To be in line with USA prices, the dollar would have to be worth about thirty pesos.

The prices I have quoted are based on 10 years knowledge of valuating properties in Capital Federal . House rentals in middle class areas for 4 bedroom properties are minimum US$ 3,500 per month or more . I have left a link attached of all the houses for rental in Palermo . Belgrano, and Villa Crespo and the average price is even higher than my quoted price
