It would be a natural presumption to think that we would have had enough of property but no our fascination with homes has moved to on-line property window shopping according to new research by Direct Line Home Insurance. They have found that 63% of people in the UK shop on line for properties they have no intention of buying. Their findings revealed that 2.6 million property addicts search through property websites at least once a day, so that they can possibly keep an eye on property prices and dream about possible future homes. The people most likely to be browsing on line are aged between 18-34 and men tend to browse more, on average around nine times a month whereas women look at sites around six times a month.
Katie Lomas, Head of Direct Line Home Insurance, thinks, “We are a nation of property obssesives with very good reason, becoming a homeowner or even climbing the ladder in the UK is a huge challenge and aspiration for many.” She added: “Property sites are a source of information and inspiration and browsing these sites has become something of a past-time for millions of people.”
