Nation of nosey neighbours
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.”
