Yield


Yields are, in percentage terms, the amount of profit an asset provides. There are two main types of yields: Gross yields are the property’s value divided by its rental income with costs still calculated, whereas NET yields refer to the property’s value divided by its rental income once costs have been deduced. NET yields are generally seen as a more accurate portrayal of expected returns, as costs have already been deducted.
