Asia: Gross rental yields (%).
The gross annual rental income, expressed as a percentage of property purchase price. This is what a landlord can expect as return on his investment before taxes, maintenance fees and other costs.
The properties are usually apartments located in premier city center or other upmarket areas that our team believes to be attractive to the foreign buyer and investor.
The gross rental returns (or rental yields) figures published by the Global Property Guide are based on the Global Property Guides own proprietary in-house research.
Our research is based on median rental and sales prices, thus the average apartment can differ country by country, but is in most cases in a very habitable state and ready to be rented out.
We divide each region into 1-, 2-, 3, and 4+ bedroom properties in our research, but the table above represents the average yield percentage of each country. Click on individual countries if you wish to see more detailed data about that specific country.

Statistics in Asia. Asia has surprisingly good house price statistics, though the quality varies greatly. The ex-British colonies tend to have good house price statistics Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia all have excellent houses price time series, the best being Hong Kong, where the data is arguably richer than in the UK, since there are official rents statistics. However in the Indian sub-continent, only India has house price statistics, and this only in a new series, not yet available on the web.
Japan publishes no house price statistics. Its ex-colonies do better: Korea has a good house price time-series, and Taiwan also has one.
Indonesia has house price statistics, and so does China (both of questionable quality). In Thailand, the Bank of Thailand publishes a time-series. In the Philippines, Colliers produces residential property data.
No house-price time-series are produced in Vietnam, Cambodia, or Laos.
