Swedish property yields are moderate. Smaller-sized studio or one-bedroom apartments in central Stockholm had the most generous gross yields, at 4.83 to 5.47%. Bigger-sized apartments seemed to have lower yields, at around 3.03 to 3.96%, while apartments in the center of the second-largest city of Gottenburg can yield around 2.26% to 5.38%.

Because rents are tied to the age of the property, the higher yields in the city center reflect partly the newer housing stock in those areas.
