Maintain a good rental yield for your investment

When growing your portfolio as a property investor, it is important to consider your rental yield (the measure of the level of profit you could make from your property). The measurement of your rental yield will be the percentage of income made through renting your property against the overall value of your investment.

Rental yield can be split into two parts:

Gross Yield

The most simple and common type of rental yield you will come into contact with:

Gross Yield = Rent x 52 (weeks in a year) ÷ Property value

Net Yield

The Net Yield considers the money left over after your expenses relating to your property rental such as letting fees, insurance etc.

Net yield = (weekly rental x 52) – costs ÷ Property value x 100
