Our focus is on the median returns from properties in select areas of each country. These properties are usually apartments, unless in areas where apartments are scarce and the market predominantly features houses, maisonettes or townhouses.
For our analysis, we typically examine 3 to 8 cities in each country to determine the average gross yield nationwide.
For more detailed information on yields, please select the desired country.

When you are buying to let, you'll want to know the rental yield – i.e., the return on your investment – which is the percentage return on the money spent.
So, if you bought for $1 million and earned a rent of $3,000 per month, your gross rental yield would be $3,000 x 12 / $1 million = 3.6%. This yield is not particularly favorable; we would consider it to be poor.
