How are rental yields of the houses for sale different to the rest of the UK in Bayford?

You may have heard of rental yield as being important for investors who wish to make a sizable profit on their rental properties. If this sounds like you and you’re looking to invest in a house currently for sale and collect rental income in Bayford this statistic is what you were looking for.

Data should also be compared to the broader region of the UK (East of England) alongside Hertfordshire then looked at with other statistics like the area’s rent and the turnover of sale of the houses in question. It could be that an investor prefers to make a profit on the sale of a house rather than the rental income and optimal properties for this investment varies throughout Bayford.

This decision is made differently depending on the investor’s tolerance for risk, investing strategy, the location they’re investing in and their overall goal for buying a house currently listed for sale.

Average Yield Average Asking rent Turnover (rental) Turnover (sale)
Bayford £0 £1,419 no relevant data for this city £0
Hertfordshire 3.33% £1,381.63 133.74% 16.45%
East of England 0.03 1,148.32 £1 16.58%

Below, these demographics are talked about in headings that explain how the city has grown, what the education levels are like in Bayford, what the social grade score of the city is like and if the green space matches the recommended levels people living in the UK should have.

A higher education level can therefore tell you if the house prices are likely to be high as the higher income level often results in people buying a bigger, more valuable house.

Having said this, whale education level can be a good factor to go by, there are also things like the rental yields, the population growth and social grades scores that can impact the value of a house and whether it will go up in value as time goes on.

Someone who wishes to find out how this change has occurred over a longer period of time may also wish to read the headings below and see if the change has continued throughout the past decade too.

In recent years because of the pandemic, it is common to see dramatic differences in the population change in the last five years when comparing it to ten as people realise they can work from home but still keep the current jobs they have.

This means they can move to cities they wouldn’t have considered otherwise and be location-independent of their source of income. Perhaps making a longer commute into the office every week for example.

In Bayford, what is the crime rate?

The crime rate of Bayford must be looked at sceptically. The reason for this is that the crime rate can vary within a city greatly and the type of crime committed can also vary too.

Lower rates could mean things like home insurance is cheaper and you have to install fewer security measures throughout your house. Saving you money in the long run. So the statistic of crime rate (6800%) is both useful and is recommended to be compared to the average.
