In the centre of Riga, a 40 sq. m. apartment returns only a 5.30% rental yield. A 40-sq.m. apartment in the centre might cost around EUR 500 per month to rent, but around EUR 115,000 to buy.

The suburbs of Riga included in our research are Purvciems, Teika, Mezaparks and Vecmilgravis. A 40-square metre (sq.m.) apartment in these areas costs around EUR 55,200 to buy, but could earn around EUR 260 monthly rental income. Property owners thus enjoy rental yields of 5.75%.

Prices of property have risen by around 5% over the past year in Riga. The property market´s recovery began in 2010 and accelerated in 2011, but since then the market has been much quieter.
