Gross rental yields in Jakarta - the return earned on the purchase price of a rental property, before taxation, vacancy costs, and other costs - are quite 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.

Rental yields in Jakarta for apartments are between 1.50% to 10.80% with a city average of 5.00%.

The disadvantage of buying in Jakarta, for foreigners, is complex legalities and high transaction costs. However, changes in the law are in process which should make things much easier.

For other cities in Indonesia the rental yields are the following: South Tangerang yields are between 3.50% to 7.50%, Depok yields from 2.50% to 3.77%, in Semarang you can expect from 4.50% to 9.99%, Bandung rental earnings sit between 4.06% and 9.20%, Tangerang itself has 4.20% to 7.33% and rental yields in Surabaya are between 3.33% and 7.18%.
