November 2016 - Scottish rental market enjoys continued growth
Yields stabilise at strong level
Yields levelled off in November after falling in the previous survey, Your Move Scotland found. Rental properties in Scotland typically returned 5% this month, down on the 5.8% recorded in September but level with October’s figure.
These yields also compare strongly to property investment in other parts of the UK. Landlords in Scotland continue to see much better returns than their counterparts in England and Wales, where the average yield in October stood at 4.7%.
Only properties in the North East and North West regions of England saw better returns, 5.3% and 5.1% respectively, suggesting that Scotland may be a good place to invest.
