Yields are relatively high at around 9% to 12%, because supply of good quality property is so limited. The rent for a 200 sq. m property on the mainland would be around TZS1.77 million (US$1,358) per month, or around Tanzanian shilling (TZS) 7,000 to TZS 8,800 (US$5 – US$7) per square metre (sq. m).

The rent for a 200 sq. m beach estate in Zanzibar would be about TZS2.36 million (US$1,811) monthly. Yields here too are around 9% to 12%.
