- Where will you live in Montevideo?:
Where will you live once you arrive in Uruguay? What are the alternatives? First of all you have to decide what is the best choice for the period of time you will be staying. For less than three months the best alternatives will be a hotel or hostel, or an apartment rented per day.
Hotels prices (per day):
2 Stars and Hostels: u$s 20 to 60, depending on the zone they are located.
3 Stars: u$s 40 to 100.
4 Stars: u$s 100 to 150.
5 Stars : u$s 150 to 250.
Apartments rented per day: u$s 40 to 100.
For periods longer than three months it will be better, and cheaper, to rent an apartment or house.
Furnished apartments prices per month:
Studio: u$s 300 to 600
One bedroom: u$s 500 to u$s 1000
Two bedrooms: u$s 700 to u$s 1500
Furnished houses prices per month:
U$s 700 to u$s 3000 depending on the zone.
The normal period for renting is one year, but some owners accept shorter periods, three or six months. At the moment of renting a guarantee is requested. The guarantee is usually an amount equal to six month´s rent to be deposited in a bank. This amount will be returned once the rent is finished. This guarantee will be used by the owner to cover unpaid rent or damages to the property.
A contract must be signed and in some cases additional expenses might be generated, like real estate agent fees or notary public charges.
Renting might generate further monthly expenses:
Common expenses: depending on the services provided might vary from u$s 50 to u$s 200.
Taxes: u$s 10 to u$s 100.
Electricity, gas, telephone, internet and cable TV: depending on usage.
All mentioned amounts are estimated and might vary.
