MOVING house can often be something of a numbers game, from setting up your monthly direct debit for your new mortgage, to finding out the number of your new house – or even how many fence panels are needed in the new garden.
Leading housebuilder Barratt Homes has been taking a light hearted look at some of the most important numbers involved as it gears up for a busy summer with people joining the Great Barratt Move.
0.5 per cent – the Bank of England base rate which has been at this low rate since March 2009 and, as recently announced, is unlikely to change for the next three years

40 – the number of large boxes an average family needs to move house

21 – the average number of welcome-to-your-new-home cards you can expect to receive
Eight – the average number of times we move house in a lifetime
12,637 – the number of properties Barratt sold last year to make it the country's largest volume house-builder
