Which Two or Three Bedroom house should I buy in Maidenhead

Which Two or Three Bedroom house should I buy in Maidenhead. One of our landlords asked if they should buy a two or three bedroom house to rent out to tenants. The first question I asked them was what are they looking for from the investment - capital growth in the property or straight forward yield?

One of our landlords asked if they should buy a two or three bedroom house to rent out to tenants. The first question I asked them was what are they looking for from the investment – capital growth in the property or straight forward yield?  Answering this question will help you figure out which properties you should buy…

The average asking price of a two bedroom house in Maidenhead is £330,000, but terraces can be picked up for around £260,000.  Three beds average £468,000 but start from around £300,000.  The three bed semi achieves an average rental price of £1,400 per month compared to £1,200 per month for a two bed.

That’s a yield of 4.36% for the two bed against 3.59% for the three bedroom house.  But if you bought a nice two bed at around £260,000 which rented for £1,200 pcm the yield would be 4.8%.  Good property choice can improve your return over the average.

So surely, the two bed terrace is the better bet?  Well it does offer a better rate of return, but the three bed, appealing to families who may stay longer could well have less void periods and may be easier to sell in the future.
