Property investors who plan to buy in Sydney would do well to avoid houses and focus on units, it has been claimed.

    Fair enough, but you can do a lot more with houses. Given low interest rates, you can put a granny flat on and get a 9.5%-10% yield on houses. Units don't offer that luxury.

    Given the choice of a house or unit, I would go the house every time. Look at the first table. Predicted growth for houses is better as well as a better 10 and 20 year growth. Than knock it down later on and put 12 units where there was one house.
