Half of people surveyed said they knew when next door leave and return from work.
One in 10 admit they have been caught peeking out the window when they hear something going on in their street.
Most common reason given was to check neighbors are 'all right'.
Half surveyed could recall the times neighbors leave and return from work.
Almost 50% of people surveyed said they could spot a new car immediately, with a fifth noticed a stranger visiting.
Other aspects were observing parcels being delivered, if a couple argue more than normal or even when the online shopping comes.
On the flip side or watching what's going on, 17 per cent have fallen out with their neighbors over their intrusive behavior.
Almost three in ten troubled homeowners have even confronted the people next door over their nosiness, though many said the snooping didn't change.
However, just under three quarters of respondents said that they would always raise the alarm and inform the homeowner if they saw something unusual occur on the property.
In the UK where I live in Hertfordshire, we have a Neighbourhood Watch scheme. Citizens are encouraged to use this natural tendency and let the authorities know of anything suspicious. The police call everyone in the area if a series of burglaries occur nearby.
I don't know about you, but I'm an observant person. If I'm in the front of my home, I notice any car that pulls up outside or any stranger knocking at the communal outer door. I spot anything out of place inside, or if my husband has missed a belt loop or if the bedspread isn't straight. Outside the back window, I watch enthralled when birds visit my garden or a cat sneaks through.
My husband isn't quite as alert about minor things inside each room, but he sure takes action if there is a potential threat to the home.
Do you think twitching curtains to get a good view of what's going on outside is natural or nosy?
