New Delhi: Hyderabad continued to be an attractive and promising real estate market and it has emerged as the highest rent yielding city in the country in 2019 with as much as 3.7 percent rental yield.

This was followed by Bengaluru which had a rental yield of 3.6 percent. Gurugram and Mumbai stood jointly at third position with 3.5 percent rental yield in 2019, according to a report by ANAROCK property consultants.
