    I think I have lived in 12.  My father is a builder and growing up we would eithor buy an old house, live in it, do it up and then sell, or else build a brand new house – live in it for a bit and then sell it and move on etc.

    I loved it as my sisters and I always got to redecorate our bedrooms and we always stayed in the same area, at one stage it was 3 houses in the same street so we had the same friends and school etc.

    My parents are finally in their forever house now and dad has semi-retired, builds boats in his spare time.

    I lived in 3 houses while at uni – flats with flatmates and then Fiance and I brought the house I am currently in so most of the moves were from when I was little!

    #3 Rental house in AZ

    #4 Rental house in AZ

    #5 & #6 two different apartments in the same complex

    #7 & #8 two different apartments in another complex (the first one had plumbing issues so they had to let us move to a new one…gross)

    #9 mom and dad bought a house and still live there (for 10+ years now)

    #10 first apartment on my own

    14 for me, and I’m 25. Growing up I lived in 5 different states, but my parents always rented for a couple of months to give them more time to look for a house each time we changed states. Of course once I started college I moved every year.

    I think I’m at about 17 if I inclued the houses that I lived in with my Dad after my parents got divorced.

    We moved quite a bit until I was 10, and DH and I have already lived in 5 different places together!

    Wow, I just realised I’m at 16 and there will be more to come!  

    I lived in the same house growing up and moved for the first time when I went away to college.  Four college moves and a post-college move added on five.

    A move overseas resulted in three housing changes in London over a period of several years.  Followed by a move to Australia and two housing changes there.

    I moved back to America for a while and lived in two different locations there, then moved back to Australia and am now on my third place since I’ve been back.

    DH and I are renting a house right now as we’re not planning on staying here long term.  We’ll be moving to either the UK, the US, or Canada sometime later this year and hopefully we’ll buy a house straightaway and be done with moving for a while!

    Whilst living overseas, I like moving every year or so to experience a new neighbourhood, but now I’m ready for us to buy a house and settle down, if we could only figure out what country to live in!

    From memory, I can count 18.  But there may be more that I can’t remember from when I was a kid.
