Stay or go – how long do people stay in their homes?

Gill - Head Gillian Bell Nov 22, 2021, 10:00 AM

Many people move more often than they expect to. This is a key finding of the 2021 Home Moving Trends Survey, conducted by the Property Academy and analysed by Dataloft.

While just 13% of home movers expect to move within the next 5 years, the reality is that 28% are likely to.

Equally, while a significant proportion (36%) anticipate their new property will be their 'forever' home, the reality is that just 1 in 4 will stay for over 20 years.

The survey, answered by over 14,000 home movers nationwide, found that the pandemic could be considered a trigger for more than 40% of recent home moves. Source: Dataloft, Property Academy, 2021
