The Most Sought-After Neighbor in America

December 31, 2015

Singer-songwriter Taylor Swift is America’s favorite neighbor. Swift was voted as the top neighbor Americans say they’d want to live next door to in 2016. 

Swift nabbed 12 percent of the surveyed adults’ votes in Zillow’s survey, which asked 1,000 Americans which celebrities they would most like to have as their neighbor as well as those they wouldn’t dare share a fence with. Swift moved up to the top spot after a third-place finish last year. Actress Jennifer Lawrence and comedian Amy Schumer rounded out the top three, with 11 percent and 9 percent of the votes, respectively.

Meanwhile, Republican presidential candidate and real estate mogul Donald Trump landed at the bottom of this year’s list for worst neighbor. Trump received 24 percent of the votes for worst neighbor, followed by Kim Kardashian and Kanye West with 22 percent.
