Property Investment
How do I calculate yield?  What is yield in property investment?

In property investment, there are 2 main types of yield.  Net Yield and Gross Yield. 

Gross Yield

Gross yield is what you earn from the rental returns vs what you paid for the property.  It is calculated using:

(Weekly rental x 52) / (the price of the property) x 100

Net Yield

Net yield is what you earn from the rental returns, less all expenses (such as council rates, water rates, property management fees, body corporate fees, etc) vs what you paid for the property.  It is calculated using:

(Weekly rental x 52 - expenses) / (the price of the property) x 100
