Property prices in Vienna continue to increase even after the pandemic. Therefore, you can expect that gross rental yields - the return on investment on a property before all expenses - are weak. But you can generate higher yields in less expensive districts. It all depends on where you buy.

Moderate yields can be generated in Floridsdorf, Penzing, Favoriten, Liesing, and Landstraße, where apartment prices are around EUR 5,000 to EUR 11,000 per square metre (sq. m.). Gross rental yields in these districts range from 2.5% to 4%.  

In Salzburg, approximately 200 miles apart from Vienna, apartment prices and rents tend to be pretty close to Viennese levels. Salzburg´s gross rental yields range from 1.84% to 4.27%.

More affordable apartments can be found in Graz. Gross rental yields in Graz are slightly better than in Salzburg - ranging from 3.40% to 4.12%.
