Gross rental yield in Toronto and Vancouver 2019, by location

In Toronto, the gross rental yields amounted to 4.13 percent in the city center as of August 2019, whereas rental yields outside the city center only equaled 3.94 percent. Rental yield is the amount a property investor is likely to earn through renting a property. It’s calculated by dividing the total amount invested into the property by the annual rental income of the property.

Vancouver vs Toronto

Rental yields are very important to potential investors and are an important factor they look at when deciding where to invest. City center properties generally command higher rents that those outside the center, so it’s not surprising that they have higher rental yields. Vancouver has higher two-bedroom apartment rents than Toronto, but they are more or less equal for one-bedroom apartments.

Vancouver rents increasing

Monthly rents for residential units in Vancouver have steadily risen over the past decade. The share of rental units which were unoccupied in 2018 was low across all unit sizes. This bodes well for rental yields in the market in the future.
