November 2017 - East of England home to rental resurgence

Landlord returns begin to stabilise

  • The yields achieved by property investors stabilised in October, following a period of pressure on landlords.

  • Your Move found that the typical yield in every surveyed region remained flat between September and October. This meant the average yield across England and Wales remained at 4.4% this month.

  • However, when compared with 12 months ago, properties in every region are generating a smaller return. In October 2016 the England and Wales average was 4.8%.

  • As usual, properties located in northern regions continue to offer better returns than other areas.

  • This month the average property in the North East had a yield of 5.1% higher than any other area in the survey. The North West was the only other region to post a similar return, it had a yield rate of 5% this month.

  • At the other end of the scale, London properties delivered the smallest percentage returns to their owners. The typical property in the capital city generated a yield of 3.2% this month.
