Richard W J Brown's curator insight, June 3, 2013 12:48 PM

Eureka! A snapshot of property investment returns that takes into consideration BOTH rental yield AND capital growth...restricted to London however.

 

This makes for fascinating reading as in effect it plots the overall returns of the various areas of London combining the rental returns and house value growth rates over the past 12 months.  

 

I have mentioned previously that looking at solely rental yield or capital growth might not be a 'wrong' approach but it can certainly be misleading.  A combined analysis of the two is the Holy Grail therefore, so this snapshot is most certainly welcome.  

 

All we need now is the equivalent across the country.  In the meantime, it's off to Lower Edmonton then is it?
