Fortitude Valley Rental Yields

Ed being a highly rated Property manager around Fortitude Valley has proven to his investors that he is able to consistently achieve high rental yields maximising returns on their investment. Typically, an apartment managed by a Fortitude Valley property manager should be able to achieve yields between 5 and 5.5%. For example, a two bedroom two bathroom rental management in Fortitude Valley valued at $420K can return between $450 and $500per week in rental, which is a very strong return on investment, particularly considering what sets Fortitude Valley property investing apart from other suburbs is the value that lies in the future capital growth. Obviously, it is important to keep in mind that yields are affected by a range of factors, some of which include, the time of year, if there is near by construction, and whether an apartment is air-conditioned or heated effectively.
