Net Yield

Net Annual Rent ÷ Current Market Value

Net Annual Rent is the total rent revenue collected minus all expenses (see below). Current Market Value is the appraised or estimated value based on comparable properties (comps). Also referred to as Net Rental Yield, this metric helps rental property investors understand the expected performance of a rental property relative to other investments on a net income basis.
