But not Frankie Sandford, who decided that a flat she was looking at would make the ideal setting for an impromptu photo shoot.
The Saturdays star was out looking for a new place to live but must have got bored while looking at an apartment and whipped out her camera phone to take some snaps.
The 21-year-old posed with her friends inside the empty flat by a mirrored door but then started to lark about with the photos.
In one of the bedrooms, she and her friend had a lie-down, while in the reception area, her friend posed with one leg up on the window sill by the front door.
Frankie and her pals even got her estate agent in on the photographic fun as he posed with them in the spacious living room of the flat, believed to be in London.
He also snapped Frankie standing behind what appeared to be a frosted glass wall in the kitchen with her arms outstretched as she pressed himself against it.
Maybe he thought that if he got in on the act, there would be a nice little commission for him when his client put her deposit down.
But sadly, it appeared to be all in vain, even he probably thought that Frankie would have been quite taken with the property by that point.
But after all the messing about inside the flat, the pop star decided that she wasn’t that interested after all.
She posted the pictures she had taken on her Twitter page under the heading Photoset.
She then wrote: ‘As you can see I take grown up things like flat hunting very seriously! We even managed to get the estate agent involved!!!!!
‘After we used the flat as a studio for our photo shoot…we werent even interested…oops!’
