Selling TV Real Estate
Ever wonder how much your favorite TV show's character's home would sell for? Worry no further, because I have the answers! Based on data from my own brain, I came up with the values of these television properties. Let us begin.
1. The Full House House, 1709 Broderick Street, San Francisco, CA
This classic San Francisco row house was home to the Tanner Family for 8 seasons of crappy television as Bob Saget and company navigated their way through the ups and downs of life in this wholesome family comedy. Seeing that the house is in the ballpark of $1.5 million, Uncle Joey and Uncle Jesse must have had some side gigs to contribute to Danny Tanner's mortgage payment. Ahhh, ahhh, ahhh, ahhh.
2. The Cosby Show House, 10 Leroy Street, Greenwich Village
Althought meant to take place in Brooklyn Heights, the exterior shots for the Huxtable Family home was actually in Manhattan's Greenwich Village. Cliff and Claire must have been making some serious cash as the similar sized 10 Leroy Street list estimated at $6,329,685. Even for a doctor and a lawyer, that seems unrealistic. Speaking of unrealistic, Theo, who can barley earn C's in high school, but somehow ends up at Columbia. Star Trek is more plausible than this. Great show, though.
3. Friends Apartment, 90 Bedford Street, Apt 20
Rachel is a waitress at Central Perk. Monica sometimes has a job as a chef, sometimes is flat out unemployed. And yet, they stay in this gigantic 2 bedroom apartment with a living room as big as a small gymnasium. How you might ask? Beats me because to rent this gigantic place, craigslist estimates it to be around $14,000 PER MONTH. That's 14 GRAND. Rachel must make some great tips!
4. The Simpsons, somewhere in Springfield
Appraising this house couldn't be easier. Why? Because in 1997, Fox held a competition in which the winner would get to move into a life-size replica of the Simpson's House! Or, they could take $75k in cash, which is exactly what the winner did - Doh! Built in aptly titled "Springfield South Valley Ranch" in Nevada, this 2,200 square foot home cost about $125k to build. As incompetent Homer was at his job, that would certainly be a reasonable priced range for a mechanical engineer at a Nuclear Power Plant.
5. All in the Family 89-70 Cooper Ave, Queens
"Those were the days..." Archie Bunker and family invited us into their living room once a week from 1971 - 1979 to laugh along with his twisted and bigoted worldviews. Their house on Cooper Ave in Queens is now estimated to be worth nearly $600k! At just 1,300 square feet, I don't blame Archie for wanting Meathead out!
6. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, 251 N. Bristol Ave, Brentwood, CA
The Fresh Prince's house isn't actually in Bel-Air...who would've thought! It is a 5 bed, 5 bath house located in Brentwood, right outside of Los Angeles. At nearly 6,500 square feet, this mansion is estimated to be worth $7 million dollars. Fresh indeed! Way to go Uncle Phil!
7. The Flintstones, 301 Cobblestone Way, Bedrock, 70777
According to wikipedia, this was the actual address given for the Flintstones home address. Seeing that the zip code is 70777, it's safe to assume that their pre-historic dwelling was somewhere in Louisiana. Experts like myself estimate the home to be worth just $150k.
