Katy Perry and Russell Brand House-Hunt in New York

"I Kissed a Girl" singer Katy Perry and her funnyman fiancée Russell Brand seem to be really into having various pieds-à-terre. Tuesday afternoon the couple was spotted looking at properties in the Chinatown/East Village area of New York City with a real estate agent. They reportedly viewed a two-bedroom apartment. According to the Daily Mail "a fellow prospective buyer said Brand broke viewing protocol by asking if he could use the toilet in the flat."

Buying in the Big Apple would add to their growing portfolio of real estate. Here's what they reportedly own: Brand, 34, bought Perry, 25, a $3.2 million four-story, four-bedroom 1920s mansion complete with a large outdoor pool in Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills as a Christmas present. It's also been reported that while Brand has listed his North London bachelor pad for £2.5 million, they might have bought another property together in the British capital.

Perry is in New York to record her new album. She was spotted going into a Chinatown studio.

Perhaps their plan to marry in India this year will lead to the purchase of an ashram in Goa. Brand proposed to Perry on New Year's Eve when the two were traveling together to the Taj Rambagh Palace hotel in India.
