Commenting on the research, Simon Downes, spokesperson for comparethemarket.com.au says: “Those that might have their sights set on locations that feature in shows such as The Queen’s Gambit or Firefly Lane also need to consider how much insurance for these properties might cost, as it’s important to have the right cover in place should the worst happen whilst you’re moving, or once you’re settled.”
