Property ghosting – the new trend
We are all a bit obsessed with other people’s homes, whether it’s celebrity cribs, pricey houses in the posh parts of Birmingham or even looking at the lower end of the market so we feel better about our own bits of bricks and mortar.

And while we are all guilty of property window-shopping, there’s a new trend for property ghosting.

Often associated with the world of dating, ‘ghosting’ describes the act of cutting all communication with someone, with zero warning or explanation.

Property ghosters are defined as people who show an interest in a property/properties and then unexpectedly ‘ghost’ the estate agent, vendor or seller by not replying to calls or emails and appearing to vanish into thin air.

Savoy Stewart spoke to more than 1,600 Brits about their house browsing habits along with 32 property experts at leading estate agents to find out more about the phenomenon.

10 HOUSE BUYING TURN-OFFS THAT COULD KNOCK THOUSANDS OFF YOUR PROPERTY
It discovered that a staggering 96 per cent of Brits admitted to browsing properties despite having no intention of moving or buying.

Unsurprisingly, ALL participants stated they house-hunted online.

And 10 per cent of those who took part in the survey admitted to attending open house viewings just to have a snoop around. These viewings are when a vendor agrees to open up their home for a day to multiple potential buyers who can call in and look around at their leisure. The open days are hosted by the estate agent who is on hand to answer questions.

Just over three quarters of those interviewed in the survey said their main intention was simply to be nosey and have a look around.

Nearly HALF confessed to looking at properties at least once a month (48 per cent) and searching for properties out of their price range and with high-spec features.
