What’s the Difference Between Gross Rental Yield and Net Rental Yield

Gross rental yield looks at just the revenue brought in from the property, but it doesn’t take into account any costs besides the purchase price.

Net rental yield considers all costs associated with the property on a yearly basis, this is the actual rental profit you’ll be making from the property.

Gross Rental Yield Formula

Gross Rental Yield = (Annual Rental Income / Property Value) x 100

Net Rental Yield Formula

Net Rental Yield = [(Annual Rental Income – Annual Expenses) / Property Value] x 100

Costs can include things such as property management fees, maintenance costs, property taxes, insurance, and any other relevant expenses.

Net rental yield is always a better metric to compare in my opinion because it takes into account more information.

For example, you might have a really high gross yield but the property might have very high maintenance costs which could make the net rental yield measly.
