Rental Yield - What It Means?
Use the Rental Yield Calculator to find out the rental yield of the condominium you intend to purchase.
Rental Yield has been a benchmark to measure the investment returns and potential of a property.
As property purchase is generally closely tied in to CPF, where the interest yield from CPF is currently at 2.6% and has becomes the benchmark. Therefore a rental yield above 2.6% is considered a better investment as opposed to leaving the money sitting in CPF.
Condominiums that are abundant in facility offerings, its age, locations, proximity to amenities and ease of connectivity all contribute to rental returns. Tenants will generally be willing to pay higher rents for newer developments with complete facility offerings, near MRT and shopping malls.
Another contributing factor to rental yields is the size of the unit. Generally smaller units which cost lower than larger units will have higher rental yields. Moreover, the fact that almost 80% of Singaporeans live in HDB housing, most tenants likely be expatriates who come to Singapore for work and are generally singles or small families.
