The bidding for the “Brady Bunch” house got down to a horse race, listing agent Ernie Carswell said, but it was HGTV that ultimately pulled away from the pack. So, just how much did the cable network spend to secure the television-famous property? About twice the asking price.
HGTV paid $3.5 million to buy the Studio City residence, or $1.615 million more than the list price of $1.885 million. The sale closed Friday.
The home received eight offers, Carswell said.
The players included stage and television producers, corporate parties and entertainers such as singer-dancer Lance Bass, who was “heartbroken” to learn he had not submitted the winning bid.
All of them planned to keep the home basically intact.
“Every [bidder] intended to retain the front facade as a historic preservation, but most of them intended to renovate the interiors,” Carswell said. “No developer submitted a bid for the property.”Link to Article
This will mean nothing to most and everything to a few:
“Feed the squirrels.”
I will leave it up to our host to explain.
Here’s a story
Of a dumbass singer
Who said he got the Brady house for list
Had a better offer
And they made Bass their b*tch
Back at the last peak the sellers got so arrogant that when deciding between multiple offers, those that were willing to do the extras (like feed the squirrels) got the sellers’ fancy.
We’re in that zone again.
There go the comps!
Neighbors who live in this neighborhood must think if someone paid this stupid money for this famous house from TV, the tour buses can’t be far behind.

The other day, I’m in my living room, and I hear a big “WHAM” coming from the kitchen. I snuck over to see what the hell happened.
My backyard squirrel was stuck, spread-eagled, on my kitchen window screen. I was a few hours late with his nuts, and he’d had enough of my procrastination.
Be careful about agreeing to take on someone else’s squirrel. It might be more than you bargained for. My little guy expects you to have your act together.
“No nuts by noon? Meet me in the kitchen for your reprimand!”
Daytrip, your squirrel story had me laughing! Be well…
