Queensland Areas with Highest Rental Yield

Category: Tags :

When it comes to property investment, one of the most important things to consider is the rental yield the property can potentially generate. If you’re thinking of taking advantage of the record-low interest rates and invest in property, here’re the areas in Southeast Queensland with the highest rental yield return.

Basically, what rental yield is, it’s the annual income generated from rent as the percentage of the property’s value. This means the higher the rental yield the better cash flow the property has. Some factors that can contribute to the rental return are the location of the property, type of property, condition it is in, and the demand for the area vs. the supply available on the market.
