Martinique property prices have somewhat fallen. The current average price per square metre of properties in Martinique is US$3,600, while last year it was US$4,100. The downward trend in property prices is observable for Fort-de-France apartments and houses, as well as for apartments and houses located in the coastal areas such as Le Diamant, Les Trois-Îlets, Sainte-Anne, and Sainte-Luce.

The decline in prices, however, has not fully been reflected in lower rents. So rental yields of coastal apartments have risen from 4.35% to 5.48%. An 80-sq m apartment last year earned 'poor' rental yields of 4.20%. The same apartment might today earn 'moderate' rental yields, of 5.16%.

Our sample size of houses this year was small, and we did not have enough cases to sample house rents.
