Realtor Works Out How Much The Simpsons' Home at 742 Evergreen Terrace Is Worth

The Simpsons have been a mainstay on our screens for more than twenty years, with the yellow family residing in the fictional town of Springfield.

Over the decades Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie have moved a couple of times, but always finds themselves back at 742 Evergreen Terrace, next to their long-suffering neighbor, Ned Flanders.

Over various episodes we've seen glimpses of the basement, dining room, kitchen, secretive "rumpus room," treehouse and the kids' bedrooms, not to mention the garage in every opening sequence.

And now realtors have compiled everything we know about the detached property and worked out how much it would be worth in today's market.

Garretts Real Estate Group shared a tongue-in-cheek listing for the four-bed, two-and-a-half bath house, which boasts 2,200 square feet. They estimate in today's market, the pre-1989 home would command a tidy $449,900.

They wrote: "Beautiful two-story home with basement. Through the arched, front door you are welcomed into the foyer. To the left is a cozy sitting room with a bay window, and to the right, is the dining room that also features a nice bay window. Towards the back of the home, is the living room and kitchen.

"The second storey features four bedrooms! A master bedroom that offers a nice ensuite bathroom. There is also an additional bathroom upstairs. The backyard is surrounded by a wooden picket fence and a low box hedge. Also a patio and a custom treehouse!"

They also pointed out the family home is close to a number of amenities, including Springfield International Airport, the General Hospital, The Wax Museum, Springfield Elementary and the mall.

They said: "Determining the exact cost of the Simpson home is a bit tricky, but after looking at the numbers and some of the notable features, the home sits somewhere in the ballpark of $449,900.

"To determine the estimated value of The Simpsons home we did a little research and looked at some of the recent SOLDS in Springfield, Oregon. We found a handful of comps that would be a good match and used the same approach when determining how much a home is worth."

Their comparisons ranged from a three-bed snapped up for $436,000, and a five-bed sold for $400,000.

"Taking the average price per square foot into account ($213) and multiplying by the presumed Simpson home size of 2200 sq/ft, we arrive at the number $449,900. While Homer may be a bumbling fool, he does have an excellent job at the local power plant that likely pays him somewhere between $75,000 and $85,000 per year.

"Also factoring in that they have been in the house since the late 1980s, Homer has some serious equity and likely paid far less for the home than its current value," they added.
