3 Bed vs 2 Bed in Warrington in 2014

Which semi detached house should I buy in Warrington? One of our landlords asked if they should buy a 3 or 2 bed semi detached property 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 a great yield?

Answering this question will help you figure out which properties you should buy...The average asking price of a 3 bed semi in Warrington is £157,950 today compared to £125,000 for a 2 bed semi. The 3 bed semi achieves an average rental price of £650 per month compared to £550 per month for a two bed semi.

That’s a yield of 5.3% for the 2 bed against 4.9% for the 3 bed. So surely, the 2 bed semi is the better bet? Well it does offer a better rate of return, but the 3 bed semi is slightly easier to rent out (less void periods) and will be easier to sell in the future.
