Taiwan´s Historic Rental Yield Data

Research Methodology: To conduct this research, we searched for studio, 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, 3-bedroom, and 4-bedroom apartments in the largest cities of Taiwan. We used the local real estate listing website for both buying and renting prices to determine the average gross rental yields (Monthly Rent x 12 / Purchase Price).

For instance, if the monthly rent is $500 and the purchase price is $100,000, the calculation would be: $500 (Monthly Rent) x 12 / $100,000 (Purchase Price) = 6% (Gross Rental Yield).
