What is the Dow, up 12 times its value, although it should be noted that between late 2008 and mid-2009 had a fall to just under half its value in early 2008. The recovery that followed this fall was a rapid growth, only comparable to that of gold in the same period.

Below are the prices of square meters of apartments in disitintos federal districts of the capital: Palermo Hollywood increased 10 times, 8 times Almagro, Miami 7 times, barely surpassing the increase in construction costs that rose to 6 times their 2001 values​​.
