House prices linked to Scots moving home more frequently than anyone else in UK
around 19-and-a-half years.
Across the UK, the average home owner moves properties every 23 years, according to analysis.
People in Wales remain in their home the longest, taking an average of 26.8 years to move.
But in Scotland, more affordable property prices have led to people moving more frequently.
Property website Zoopla made the findings after working with analysts Hometrack using Land Registry and Registers of Scotland data.
Residents in Midlothian, are particularly likely to move frequently – after just under 15 years on average.
Spokesman Lawrence Hall said: “Regions with a shorter time between house moves could offer better affordability than those where properties change hands less regularly.
“Regions where properties change hands less often can suggest a lower level of demand, or less housing stock – particularly in rural areas.”
The average property in Scotland is valued at £184,800 compared to £407,895 in the south east of England.
