AT Survey: How Often Do You Move?


120908move-01.jpg
We were helping our boyfriend move over the weekend and he commented that the place he was moving out of was the longest he'd ever lived in an apartment in LA (only a year and a half). Then this morning, by coincidence, we heard a story on KPCC about how Americans have a tendency to move more than anyone else in the world. The story mentioned that its due to a few things but entrepreneurship, and the promise of something better is apparently the biggest reason we move. We tried to count how many places we've lived in LA since 2000 (we stopped counting after five). But we have stayed put for the last three of those eight years due to the fact that we're in love with our apartment and our neighborhood. So how about it AT readers--how often do you move (and why)?

And don't forget to tell us why you've moved so many (or so little) times since high school/college in the comments!
