Where do You Score in the Rental Yield Premier League?

View of the soccer stadium ready for the match

Football is providing much needed entertainment for many fans, as establishments close during lockdown across the country!

For those cheering on Liverpool, Man United Or Leicester City, the season so far is making the lockdown a bit more tolerable.

Whereas for Arsenal, Chelsea and Sheffield United fans, the season so far could be compounding the anguish lockdown has brought on.

Never fear! If you’re interested in property as well as football, you may get a cheer when looking at Rentround’sRental Yield Lockdown Premier League Table (catchy name right?).

Landlords, tenant & letting agents, check out below and see how your Premier League team is doing in terms of its ever so important rental yield.

League champions & Champions league qualification

Newcastle United fans, put aside the pain you were probably still suffering when losing out on the title in the 1995/96 season, you’re crowned champions in the rental yield table.

Guardiola, Klopp and Ancelotti may want some tips from Steve Bruce going forward!

With a whopping 6.4% yield in nearby St James Park, first place was secured, although it wasn’t a one-horse race!

Ralph Hasenhüttl’s Southampton was close behind, missing out by only 0.2%. Better luck next year.

Securing the remaining Champions League positions are Pep Guardiola’s Man City, Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton and Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool (yeah we know, we’ve added a Champions League spot, but it’s a made up league so who’s going to complain!)

The Relegation Fight

It’s not so much Ole, Ole, Ole for Manchester United, as the club can’t replicate their current on the field performances in their rental yield. Although luckily for them, they weren’t quite in danger of relegation.

Backed by strong capital gains, London clubs with their low rental yield make up most of the bottom half of the table. Crystal Palace, Spurs & Arsenal avoid relegation in 13th, 16th and 17th positions respectively.

Bottom 2 clubs Chelsea (Abramovich must be reeling!) & Fulham face relegation and surprisingly the last relegation spot is saved for West Brom. A rental yield of 3% left the club needing an extra 0.2% to catch surviving Arsenal.
