Total Return

    The total return of a property investment is the total gain or loss generated from holding an investment. The total return for a Share Investor includes all dividends received, capital gains generated less all transaction costs.

    It is expressed as a percentage or a total amount. For example, if £10,000 was invested in a property and the total return 3 years later was 20%, then the Share Investor would have generated a total return of £2,000 from holding the investment.
