November 2017 - Positive performance continues in Scottish rental market
Investors rewarded with fine performance
Rent rises across much of Scotland helped keep landlord returns stable in October 2017, Your Move Scotland found.
The average yield was 4.8% this month, the same as during September but lower than the 5% figure recorded at the same point in 2016.
These returns compare impressively with England and Wales, where the average yield was 4.4% this month. On a regional basis, only the North East (5.1%) and North West (5%) have outperformed the Scottish average.
