Are you findings One Beds a Little Pricey in Hillingdon at the Moment or is it just me?

I am seeing more two beds on the market at the moment which are looking reasonable value compared to a recent push in prices on one beds in the area. So lets compare and contrast a couple of properties.

I am seeing more two beds on the market at the moment which are looking reasonable value compared to a recent push in prices on one beds in the area.  So lets compare and contrast a couple of properties.  By choosing these two particular properties this might be a biased view (and it is) but I am sure you understand the point I am making.

Take for example a one bed maisonette near the bottom of Vine Line at £240,000 on Chestwood Grove,  or this two bed in Ickenham at £250,000.  I appreciate there's a short lease on the two bed, but factor a lease extension in at £23,000 (this would need to be priced by a solicitor) and it looks reasonable compared to the one bed.  At a push a one bed well let for say £900pcm (the average is closer to say £850) compared to say £1100 for a two bed.  

At these prices the yield would be 4.5% on the one bed and 4.8% for the two bed (with the £23k factored in).  Worth looking around at the moment. 

What I am not saying is that the one bed is a poor investment.  Just that it looks less good VFM than the two bed at the moment presented side by side.
