The spread of gross rental yields for key cities within a region currently averages 3%, with London having the narrowest at 1.2%.

Yields are critical to measuring income returns and gross yields are a good starting point for quickly comparing locations and properties. Generally speaking, private investors try to aim for gross rental yields of between 5% and 8%, in order to ensure they cover their costs and make a profit.
