LUXEMBOURG--(Marketwired - March 30, 2017) - RentRange, one of the premier providers of market data and analytics for the housing industry, today released data ranking the 25 U.S. metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) by highest average gross yield for single-family(1) homes during the fourth quarter (Q4) of 2016.
The Q4 2016 RentRange® data identified that many of the markets included on the list are in noncoastal, Midwestern states, such as Ohio, Missouri and Kansas. Additionally, the data also identified multiple smaller markets on the list, including Birmingham, Cincinnati and Tulsa. While Detroit is ranked at number two, yields have declined from a year ago, perhaps due to recent economic improvements. If economic conditions continue to improve, yields may continue to fall as a result of a potential rise in home prices.
"Looking at average gross yield rates, Cleveland, Detroit and Dayton top our list of markets with the highest returns for single-family homes," said Dennis Cisterna, chief revenue officer, RentRange Data Services. "These three markets fall within the Rust Belt region, which was once dominated by an industrial-powered economy and is now experiencing population loss and economic decline. Just because areas have a high yield, it doesn't necessarily mean they are a great place to invest. For investors, whether you are an everyday investor or an institutional investor, it is vital to analyze each property to determine whether it will produce the returns you expect prior to purchasing a single-family residential investment property."
