Let's delve into the fascinating world of British housing trends and statistics. Have you ever pondered over the average time British people stay in their homes? This graphic reveals the answer!

As expected, those in private rented accommodation stop for the least time, at 4.3 years.

Those buying a home with a mortgage tend to stay an average of 9.2 years. Those in social rented homes (council housing or housing association properties) stay a little longer, at an average of 12.2 years. Finally, those homeowners without a mortgage stay the longest, at 23.2 years!
