After analysing our removal data, we discovered that August is the most popular month to move house in Dundee, with 14.29% of users choosing this as their moving date. July was a close second, seeing 12.09% of users.
Summer is a very popular season for movers across the UK as the clear skies, higher temperatures and longer days make for the perfect travelling conditions. If you’re moving with children, an August house move also means you can take advantage of the Summer Holidays, meaning the process won’t affect your child’s education.
The least popular months to move in Dundee are November and December, with both seeing 4.40% of removals booked. With Christmas being a rather expensive and stressful time, this isn’t surprising to see. These months also bring hazardous winter weather, making for a more difficult journey.
A common trend seen across the UK, Friday proved to be the most popular day to move house in Dundee, with 26.37% of removals booked. A weekend house move is highly desired by many homeowners across the UK as it allows them to take fewer days off work.
A Friday move gives workers more time out of the working week to gradually unpack and settle in, reducing stress levels. Those moving houses with children will also not disrupt school hours.
With just 4.40% of removals booked, Sunday was the least popular day to move house in Dundee. With many estate agents' and conveyancers’ offices closed on Sundays, it could mean an increased risk of delays throughout the property chain as these vital channels of communication are no longer available. This is a common reason why so many users avoid this day of the week.
If you’re considering a house move outside of Dundee but haven’t decided on a new location yet, we’ve done the vital research for you - analysing data regarding the most popular locations for users moving out of Dundee.
The most popular destination for our Dundee users is Glasgow, with 6.56% of removals booked. For a quick comparison, know that the average property price in Dundee is £171,743, whilst in Glasgow, the average sits at £205,616. Other popular locations included Forfar, Oxford and Carnoustie.
As you can see, the list includes a mix of towns and cities, providing something for every lifestyle and family dynamic.

As mentioned above, Glasgow is the first location on our list, with an average property price of £205,616. This latest figure has increased by 6% since 2019 but is actually down 23% on the 2006 peak price of £267,486.
