Have you ever been watching your favorite TV show and asked yourself how in the world the characters could afford such a gorgeous house or apartment in such an affluent area? That was always irritating about Friends. That huge, two bedroom apartment in New York City would have been impossible for waitress Rachel and caterer Monica to afford!
Here’s how much your favorite TV show homes and apartments would actually cost in real life:
The Full House house: The Tanners grew up in a beautiful Victorian home in San Francisco, but there’s no way, even if the three adults in the home pooled their income, that they could have afforded that home. In 2013, the actual Tanner home sold for $2.8 million, and today its estimated value is $3.7 million.
Carrie’s apartment on Sex and the City: First off, she spent thousands on shoes and clothes per month, and her 600-square-foot, one-bedroom, one-bathroom brownstone apartment on the upper east side of Manhattan, in today’s market, is estimated to be worth $1 million. That's a whole lot of magazine articles!
Lorelai’s house on Gilmore Girls: Stars Hollow isn’t a real place, but small towns in Connecticut aren’t exactly inexpensive. The charming two-bedroom, two-bath home would likely come with a $445,000 price tag in the real world. That’s a lot of cash for a single mom to shell out without any help!
The Dunphy home in Modern Family: The actual home in West Los Angeles sold in 2014 for over $2 million. Phil must have sold a whole lot of houses to afford that pad! (She Knows)
