If you’re looking to invest in property in 2022, it’s important to understand rental yield to ensure you get a good return on your investment.  

Rental yield is the annual income generated from rent as a percentage of the property’s value. A higher rental yield indicates better cash flow, which can be useful when making property investment decisions.

The level of rental return you can expect is determined by factors such as the location of the property, the type of property, the condition of the property, as well as supply and demand in the market.
