Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

MORE than a third of Bri­tish peo­ple have vis­ited an es­tate agent or on­line prop­erty web­site to “nosey” at the price, de­tails and in­te­rior pho­tos of their friends’ and neigh­bours’ homes, ac­cord­ing to re­search by Fin­daProp­erty.com

The study also re­veals that one in 10 peo­ple ad­mit to peek­ing through their neigh­bour’s win­dow to see what the inside of their prop­erty looks like.

For many, it doesn’t stop there. About six per cent con­fess to snoop­ing around inside their neigh­bour’s home when asked to check on it.

Sa­man­tha Baden, of Fin­daProp­erty.com, says: “Gath­er­ing as much in­for­ma­tion about your lo­cal prop­erty mar­ket and home val­ues is cru­cial.”
