How Long Have You Lived In Your Current Home?

How Long Have You Lived In Your Current Home?

Because of my job, I bounce around quite a bit- in the last 12 years, I've lived in six homes in five countries. My last four years in DC have been the longest stretch in one location since college; generally I spend two years (or less) in one home. My mom on the other hand has been in the same apartment building in DC since before I was born- 37 years at the same address!

Mom and I are two ends of the spectrum in terms of time in one home, and we would like to know where you fall. Have you been in your home for decades, or weeks? Do you anticipate a lifetime in one home or moving every few years? If you move often for your job, is that a positive or a negative element? Would you prefer to stay in one place, or would your wanderlust make that impossible? Please share your thoughts in the comments below.
