The most viewed homes for sale last month have been revealed by Zoopla - and at number one is a five bedroom home in Pontefract.

If you thought it was impossible to buy a five bedroom home for less than £190,000, think again as the most popular property for sale in Britain this month has an asking price of exactly that.

Using data compiled from Zoopla’s tool which allows users to search by “most popular”, the company found Britain’s most viewed house for sale this month is in South Kirby, which topped the list, with 163,000 views in the last month The house is on sale for £187,950 - £556,515 less than the average asking price for a five bed house in England, according to Zoopla.

In second place is a three-bed detached house in Lancaster, with 67,000 views. The home is on the market for £125,000.

A four bed detached house in Scunthorpe was just behind, with 65,000 views. The home is on the market for £195,000.

Closer to London, the most popular properties were far more expensive. Fourth was a luxury six-bed house in Elstree, on the market for £4.5m.

And coming in fifth was another high end property, with five bedrooms in Fulham, worth £4.85m.

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.
