“Full House” fans are in for a shock: The San Francisco home made famous by this 1980s-’90s TV sitcom has sold after two and a half months on the market—but for less than the sellers had wanted. In spite of all the hubbub surrounding this property (not to mention the Netflix spinoff, “Fuller House”), the “Full House” home sold for under asking price.
How much under? Well, not much. The 3,125-square-foot, three-bedroom, four-bathroom Victorian beauty was listed at $4,150,000, and sold for $4 million. The difference is hardly chump change, so we doubt the sellers are sobbing to sleep. Still, you’d think a home that’s a pop culture icon in one of the country’s most expensive markets could have sparked a bidding war that would have pushed the price well over asking. So what happened?
Granted, those of us who religiously watched the show may be biased by our warm and fuzzy memories of widower Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) raising his three kids (one of whom was played alternately by the Olsen twins) with the help of rocker brother-in-law Jesse (John Stamos) and best friend Joey (Dave Coulier). We may think the property (known forever to fans as the Tanner house) is downright priceless, even if it was used only for exterior shots in the opening credits. Yet in real estate, a home is worth only what a buyer will pay.
