While it’s known as one of the most expensive cities in the world there is still a chance to make a good return on property investments. Landlords especially are able to benefit, especially if they have properties in attractive Boroughs. They can gain a considerable rental yield back from their investments as a result. Havering is proving to be one of the best places to invest in rentals.
Despite the ever-increasing house prices in London making it difficult for landlords to attain high rental yields, it was recently found that returns of more than 8% are still feasible. Research was conducted through the use of an interactive yield map to study each Borough in the capital on a street by street base to discover the highest potential yield for landlords.
Data accumulated showed that the highest rental yield of 8.3% was located in the Borough of Havering, in the Romford postcode area near Whybridge School. The average rent for the month for a two-bedroom flat here is surprisingly only £1156, £600 less than the average month’s rent of £1756 over the whole of London.
For those unfamiliar with rental yield, it’s basically a measure of the return a landlord gains on a property investment, or the profit they make in simpler terms. Property yields can be affected by a plethora of factors, including regional disparities and property prices, and a fluctuating house market. In the first years of letting a property, the mortgage payments can be higher than the rental yield. Over time though, a well-made investment can offer capital growth and a decent rental yield.
