A Twitter post suggesting that property values may increase in areas where dress codes are implemented has gone viral on the platform, with most people suggesting that implementing such a policy would be worthy of protests.
User @Cooperstreaming even suggested that such protests should see people walking around topless on their own properties.
“Seems like a win win (sic) to me.”
In a post reading “New advancements in increasing property values” Twitter user @sushil_js shared a screenshot of another user’s tweet:
Some responders took the suggestion quite seriously, slamming the concept of closed neighbourhood eco-systems and regulation of planned visitors. Similarly, @abelincoln_ said such regulations would have the opposite effect on property values.

Most people, however, laughed off the idea.
Interestingly though, @Allisonmward wrote: “I once had a real estate agent selling the house across the street ask me if I could dress more appropriately while they were on the market. I was wearing pyjamas with shorts to check my mailbox...”
