A 100 sq. m. house along the a Bay island beach can earn very healthy yields of perhaps 35%. The figure is calculated for weekly rentals and an estimated 3 months vacancy each year. Yields for other sized properties range from 12% to 21%, with bigger places earning generally lower yields.

Apartments in Honduras´ capital and other major cities have much lower rental yields of around 4% to 6%; however, 300 sq. m. apartments might typically yield up to 8%. Houses in major cities´ suburbs might typically yield from 6% to 8%.
