Types of dwellings found in Argentina and their building costs

 In Argentina, there are different types of constructions in terms of the size of the homes, but the materials used are usually the same in almost all cases. Homes made with wood or the now popular container homes are not common in Argentina, where the houses are mostly made with cement and bricks. Of course, this can vary if it’s a low or middle-class home or a luxury home, but we’ll get to that later.

The types of constructions that are common in Argentina are duplex type constructions, that is, they are homes that have a narrow shape since they share the land with other homes attached to the side. These duplexes can have up to 3 rooms and usually have 2 floors. Its price can be up to 72,358 Argentine pesos per square meter (650 US dollars).

A house that is only on the ground floor is also very common, especially if you have all the land for your house and you should not share it with another. In that case, the houses can have up to 4 rooms, although this number will increase if it is upper class. The price per square meter in this case is 74,500 Argentine pesos (660 US dollars).

They are generally made on land shared with other homes and can cost up to $20,000 to build, although the value may be less if it is a prefabricated home.
