We can argue about , but we can't argue about how scary high the prices are to live in a home like the Tanners'. Admittedly, in the TV show, Danny Tanner was a television personality and ostensibly well paid, but he would need to be a bona-fide star to afford the same place today — even with his comedic family members providing built-in childcare to offset babysitting costs.
The actual "Full House" house address with most documentation pointing to 1709 Broderick. It's recorded as a 3-bed, 3-bath Victorian, slightly under 2,500 square feet. In the show, we saw also a fully converted attic and a recording studio in the basement. It was easily accessible to some of San Francisco's most iconic places, notably the Painted Ladies and Alamo Square, pictured in the opening sequence of each episode. In other words, it was prime real estate.
What would it cost to own such a place today?
While the actual Broderick Street home is not for sale currently, here is a comparable option. has a similar sort of park-across-the-street location as the home on the show.
Note its classic Victorian lines and converted attic, harkening again to the set-up for the original show. Cost: $2,950,000. According to property records on Redfin, it sold for $549,000 in 1998. The documents don't go back far enough to check what it might have sold for in the '80s when Full House was in full swing, but you can bet less.
Or, the family could downsize to a 4-bed, 3.5-bath home like , still close to that part of the city and also still offering an attic (though this one unfinished) for the romantic peaked bedroom effect. The price here is $3,750,000 and it sold for $835K in 1994.
What do you think: Would Danny be able to support a family in San Francisco today?
