Gross rental yields in Lisbon - the return earned on the purchase price of a rental property, before taxation, vacancy costs, and other costs - are moderately attractive. Gross rental yields are an important consideration even for those who do not intend to become landlords, because a high rental yield indicates that the property market is reasonably priced.

Lisbon´s property market is now reasonably priced, though hardly a bargain.

A typical 120 sq. m. apartment in an elite area in Lisbon rents for around EUR 1,200 per sq. m., and costs EUR 235,000 to buy. Apartment yields in Lisbon range from 5.4% to 6.2%, with no really clear difference between sizes. These are reasonable yields and the purchase price is attractive for a European capital city, though the city is hardly at the centre of things. Villas in Lisbon have similar gross rental yields.

In Algarve, a 120 sq. m. apartment costs on average EUR 1,600 per sq. m., or EUR 195,000. Algarve apartments return rental yields which range from 3.6% to 4.6%.
Our rental yields figures assume long-term lets; short-term rentals may earn higher returns); smaller apartments tend to be most profitable. Villas in Algarve appear to earn similar returns.
