Assumptions:

  • The Buying Price per Square Metre, the Rent per Month (sq. m.), and the Gross Rental Yield are based on our yields research (see DATA FAQs). Figures are typically based on the average for a 120 square metre apartment (in most locations – see mouse overs). The apartments are typically in a prime inner city area, except in the Caribbean or Pacific.
  • The Price/Rent Ratio indicates the years of rent which would be required to buy such an apartment.
