Obama Family Voted Most Desirable Celebrity Neighbor for 2010
If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know we love our celebrity real estate and all the accompanying eye candy. This month, in addition to tracking celebrity homes for sale, celebrity foreclosures, and celebrity price reductions, we have the results of our third annual Celebrity Neighbor Survey. The survey, conducted by Harris Interactive, asks more than 2,000 U.S. Adults who they would most like to be their neighbor, and who they wouldn’t want to share a fence with.
This year, the Obama family was voted the most desirable celebrity neighbor(s) for 2010. Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi, and Sarah Palin tied for second place. However, not all ‘celebrities’ make good neighbors. “Octomom” Nadya Suleman was named the least desirable neighbor of 2009, followed closely by Jon and Kate Gosselin.
In light of recent news, adults appear to be indecisive about whether or not professional golfer Tiger Woods would make a good neighbor. Three percent of adults found him to be a desirable neighbor for 2010, while only slightly more (4%) thought he was the worst neighbor of 2009. The same confusion surrounds Sarah Palin, who last year was ranked number one on the most desirable list. This year, while 12% thought Palin to be a desirable neighbor for 2010, 11% voted her as the worst neighbor of 2009 – ranking her near the top of both lists simultaneously.
