Using data compiled from Zoopla's tool which allows users to search by "most popular", the company found a list of the five most popular properties in the UK in October.

Topping the list, with 163,000 views in the last month was a five-bedroom house in Pontefract, on sale for £187,950 - £556,515 less than the average asking price for a five bed house in England, according to Zoopla.

However, while people may be looking at house prices, that may not necessarily translate to buying. A survey by Knight Frank published in October suggested the number of people moving house has fallen to the lowest level since it began its survey in April 2014.

That's because people are still expecting house prices to rise. And according to the latest data from the Land Registry, UK house prices rose 5.3 per cent in the year to September, with the price of an average London property reaching half a million pounds for the first time.
