Rental Yields Compared (60+ Countries)
We are specifically interested in the median yields in carefully selected areas in each country. Typically, the properties are apartments, except in regions where the apartment supply is limited and the sales market primarily comprises houses, maisonettes, townhouses, etc.
In most cases, we will research 3 to 8 cities within the country and calculate the average gross yield for the entire country.
In our research, we categorize properties in each region based on the number of bedrooms: 1-, 2-, 3-, and 4+ bedrooms. If you're interested in more specific yield information, please click on the country name.

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.
