East coast suburb Bicheno saw the highest yields across the state, topping the list for houses with 18.1 per cent rental yields.

The town’s population of less than 1,000 permanent residents however, indicates that this figure may not reflect actual investment returns in the region. Bicheno is known as a fishing port and beach resort town, so holiday rentals are likely skewing the gross rental yield being reported.
