Key Property Investment Data: Asia

To help you compare the profitability of the buy-to-let property in the different countries of Asia, we have assembled a range of data.

These statistics and other data may look intimidating, but they are all relevant. They're key data - how much rent you will earn, how much you will be taxed, stamp duty, and other cots when you buy and sell (buy/sell costs) your rights in the face of awkward tenants (landlord rights), and how fast property prices and the country's economy have been growing. All columns are sortable for easy comparison.
