Both types of properties can be good.
Some factors to consider for maximising your investment returns;
1. Land content – townhouses usually have more of this than units.
2. Townhouses seem to be the more popular trend for families and even singles as they seem to want their own separate space, but without the work of huge yards, and the statistics tell us that family sizes are shrinking and single person purchases are increasing.
3. There may be more ability to add value to a freestanding townhouse (inside and out). Units can be more restricted by the others in the complex – you may not be able to alter the exterior too much.
