Semi-detached houses are more limited in stock than terraced housing and they can cost a bit more.
However, if the location is right, they can be fantastic, long-term, family homes and that means you will be able to attract tenants who will stay in the property, for longer.
But if you are interested in the ‘family’ tenant profile then you need to realise that with this type of property, the maintenance costs are going to be a little higher.
Plus, the initial investment is usually higher, too.
These additional costs aren’t necessarily a bad thing but you need to have a good understanding of the costs involved before you commit to anything.
Semi-detached housing is usually easy to sell, as well.
And there are normally plenty of ways to ‘add value’ meaning an exit with a higher profit margin.
It all comes down to your strategy and what your overall aims are for the property.
