We all remember playing The Sims, right? Spending hours painstakingly crafting your dream home from the ground up, complete with eight bedrooms, five swimming pools and a helipad, just in case. Sadly, the ‘motherlode’ cheat doesn’t work in the real world, and most of us have to pay for our home via a mortgage.
We wanted to see how much that mortgage would cost when it comes to the fictional houses we see on screen. How much would Mario have to pay to live in his universe? What would the Roses have to fork out to live in their motel? Could Villanelle really afford that Parisian apartment on an assassin’s salary?
Let’s find out.
