Gross rental yields on residential property in Costa Rica remain generally healthy, at around 6.5% to 7.9%. Our research suggests that these returns are slightly below what one would have expected 5 or 10 years ago, but not much less. These are quite good returns for landlords, even when costs such as taxes and other costs are subtracted from the gross figures.
We have not found much difference in returns between different types of properties. However, our research tends to concentrate on the higher end of the market, and as in most residential markets around the world, even higher rental returns are likely to be obtainable on smaller properties in less-desirable areas - though of course these properties are likely to be more trouble to manage.
