A new property tool allows you to search for the most expensive properties for sale in any location of the United Kingdom.
This app allows property-obsessed Brits to look at some of the country’s most opulent residences and learn how much they cost.
The Lustworthy Listings Explorer is a new application that allows visitors to peer through the keyhole of the most costly residences in their area. The application is updated in real time, allowing users to see the most expensive properties in any town, city, or postcode, as well as how much they cost in monthly mortgage payments and bank deposits.
It comes as a poll of over 2,000 people found that 57 percent of Britons spend their free time on sites like Zoopla and Rightmove, with 82 percent admitting to looking for pricey properties as a kind of escapism and one in three saying they’d like to see what they could purchase if they won the lottery.
Bored Brits revealed they spent up to 75 minutes every week drooling over property listings in the previous 12 months, and watched programmes like Location, Location, Location more than 10 times per month.
More than a quarter of respondents indicated they use social media sites like Instagram to find aspirational interior design ideas, with homeware, bedroom design, and color themes being the top three areas influenced by the platform.
Two-fifths of Britons also stated they would relocate across the UK to be able to buy their ‘ideal home.’
But, realistically, over a quarter said they weren’t sure if they could afford it, and more than a fifth believe their current job possibilities are better than those they would have if they moved.
“Our Lustworthy Listings Explorer has been built in order to enable visitors acquire a fascinating insight into how the other half live,” said James Andrews, senior personal finance editor at money.co.uk, which is hosting the Lustworthy Listings Explorer.
“In terms of minimum deposits and monthly repayments, the explorer indicates how much some of the most magnificent properties for sale in the UK would cost.
“It also sheds light on the disparities in asking prices for affluent estates throughout the UK’s many regions, cities, and postcodes.”
