What Happened to the Prices of Famous TV Show Houses

Two years ago, I published an article about the prices of houses that were featured in popular television shows from the past. I listed the values of the various homes according to Zillow. Can you guess if they have dropped in value from their 2006 levels or increased? The answer may surprise you.

The Beverly Hillbillies Home, at 750 Bel Air Rd, Los Angeles, CA 90077, had the biggest drop in terms of dollars and cents. The value of the house fell from $25,159,326 to $ 18,542,500, a drop of $6,616,826 or 26%.

Remember the Brady Bunch? Their episodes can often be found on TVLand. The house used in the show at 11222 Dilling St, North Hollywood, CA 91602 was valued at $939,191 two years ago. Now it's at $1,064,500, an increase of $125,309 or 13%.

Fonzie lived above the garage at this house. The Happy Days House, 565 N Cahuenga Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90004 was worth $1,277,069 in 2006. Currently, Zillow values it at $ 1,898,000, a whopping 49% increase. The value went up by $620,931.

The OC Mansion, 6205 Ocean Breeze Dr, Malibu, CA 90265 was $5,369,146, now $ 5,326,500, almost no change whatsoever. Just a slight drop of $42,646, which amounts to less than 1%.

Finally, the Numb3rs House, at 2515 4th Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90018 went from $821,473 to $561,500, a $259,973 or 32% reduction.

So to summarize, two dropped big time, two increased in value, and one remained the same.
