In the centre of Riga, a 45 sq. m. apartment returns only a 5.2% rental yield. A 45-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 50-square metre (sq.m.) apartment in these areas costs around EUR 78,000 to buy, but could earn around EUR 343 monthly rental income. Property owners thus enjoy rental yields of 5.2%.

The property market´s recovery began in 2010 and accelerated in 2011, but since then the market has been much quieter.
