The Simpsons’ House is Worth $450,000 on Today’s Real Estate Market

How much would The Simpson’s house be worth in today’s market? A real estate company decided to investigate and even create a tongue-in-cheek listing.

In the long-running TV series, Homer Simpson and his family reside at 742 Evergreen Terrace in Springfield. To determine the value of the house, the Garrett Real Estate Group compared the location, floor plan and nearby amenities with comparable listings. To do this, they first had to determine the location of the house.

Matt Groening, the creator of The Simpsons, tried to keep the exact location of Springfield a secret. After a little digging, the company discovered that Springfield was actually named after a town near Portland, Oregon, the city that Groening grew up in.

Then, the company determined the details of the Simpsons’ house: a two-story 4 bedroom, 2 and a half bathroom 2,200 square feet house with a basement, a bay window, a patio and even a custom treehouse. They confirmed the size and floor plan with a replica house built in 1997 by Kaufman and Broad homebuilders after a promotional contest organized by FOX and Pepsi.

After comparing recently sold houses in Springfield, Oregon, with similar characteristics to the Simpsons’ home, the company came up with a home value of $449,900.
