People would trade sex for house-hunting on Zillow, survey finds

by Noble J. Ozogbuda

If you’re more into “Zillow talk” than pillow talk, you’re not alone.

A new survey revealed that 49% of people would rather browse for their dream homes on the real estate site than do the dirty.

The survey, conducted by California contractor site Surety First, enlisted 1,000 participants to reveal their Zillow-scrolling habits, and nearly half were more interested in house-hunting than hanky panky.

Sex isn’t the only activity people are slacking on, either. About 58% of the participants admitted they missed an important deadline because of their Zillow browsing. Forty-one percent of respondents said their house obsession has caused multiple problems in their lives, while 56% said they’ve canceled plans with friends and would instead scroll through Zillow.

In February, “Saturday Night Live” made fun of the newfound obsession with Zillow with a skit about the joys of imaginary real estate hunting featuring “Schitt’s Creek” star Dan Levy.

The sketch from the episode started off with a parody of an infomercial. Soft voiceovers are heard in the background wondering, “Are you bored?” “Looking for something to spice up your life?” “You used to want sex but you’re in your late 30s now,” and “sex isn’t really doing it for me anymore.”

“You need something new… you need Zillow.com”

The skit then reveals that the actors are lusting after gorgeous real estate listings, not sexy time with their signifigant others.

Social media had a field day with the longtime NBC sketch comedy series and expressed amusement over Twitter.

“Why have sex when you can have an iced coffee and look at Zillow while crying over a future you’ll never have,” one fan wrote.

Another user joked, “That skit was everything! My wife and I legit post/message houses to each other all the time…Sexy AF!”
