I Can't Believe How Much These 12 Classic TV Homes Would Really Cost

Before everyone started complaining about how much Monica and Rachel's apartment in New York would really cost, we were happy to accept the illusion that all the families on TV just happened to live in nicer homes than the rest of us.

Maybe people in Hollywood just have a skewed perspective on things, but looking back at some of these shows it really is amazing the prime real estate the characters on our favorite shows could afford. It's hard to work out exactly how much these homes were worth when the show first aired, but it's easier to tell how much they would cost today.

See if you can afford to live in your TV dream home - but don't get your hopes up!
