Homebuyers could choose house for sale because of number

Estate agents may have to pull out the stops to sell some homes after it was revealed that some house numbers are 'unluckier' than others.

Confused.com released details from a survey which revealed that people living in properties with house number 243 have made more insurance claims than any other homeowners since 2007.

Its report, showing that 45 per cent of residents in number 243 have claimed on their cover during this period, could encourage homebuyers to choose their properties for sale due to its position on the street.

Another 'unlucky' house number was picked to be number one, which came in third place as the house number with homeowners most likely to make a claim.

Confused.com also reported last year that people who use social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook are putting their homes at risk, as people on the web pages can be alerted when they are not in their properties.ADNFCR-1222-ID-800330570-ADNFCR
