Europe's dearest flats + rental yields in europe
The Baltic capitals of Vilnius (€455,000) and Riga (€362,400) are not far outside the top group.
No German city makes our chart: the dearest is Munich, at €400,000.
Rental returns cannot fall forever
Nowhere in Europe are rents keeping pace with the continued rise in property prices. This is cause for concern.
At the Global Property Guide, we informally consider a danger signal to be rental returns of around 4% or below.
Several European capitals offer rental income yields around or below this 4% level. An example is Madrid, where rental returns are now at only 3.15%.
i´m surprised to see some of the yields that high.
especially in places that are in "bubble territory". maybe this are gross numbers.
here is a number for the uk
"Gross yields are in decline and were 4.6% in October compared with 4.8% a year ago. After costs this would equate to a net yield before tax of around 3.25%."
i think the situation in the office sector is not much better..............
and remember that you can get risk free gilts/bonds with a5% yield.......
compare this with rhe figures from the us
"Yields are low in the US, ranging from 2 to 4%."
"In thriving working class neighborhoods, it is possible to get 6% yields, but such opportunities are rare".
and using the VALUATION YARDSTICKS FOR THE HOUSING MARKET that says that everything that has a lower gross yield than 6 (price/rent 16,7) is overvalued and everything over 8 (p/r 12,5) is undervalued there are not many bargains left...... and you have to " go east".......
and keep in mind that these are the gross numbers (sounds to me like wall street reporting with their pro forma numbers...... ignoring taxes etc.)
