The lights are on
Princess Peach's castle is a nice piece of real estate, but have you ever wondered how nice?
Using the castle's front doors in Super Mario 64 as a reference for size, real estate blog Movoto figured out how much Peach's castle might cost. You can check out the full breakdown below which even factors where the castle would probably be located in the real world. The price comes in just under an affordable $1 billion.
The graphic below is actually just a small portion of the breakdown. The posting on the blog goes into even greater detail about where Movoto pulled its numbers from.
There is at least one assumption we can make from this discovery: Bowser's kidnapping motivations have little to do with romantic aspirations. He's after the money.

Well of course she's rich; she sell shrooms.
Man, that girl has some dough!
Its not in Oslo, Norway. Oslo is a city it should be somewhere else.
What they don't tell you is, to get that kind of money, Peach is a tyrant and charges her mushroom followers a hefty 80% tax for the privilege of working on her land. They work to pay her off. That's why Bowser and his friends are trying to lead a revolt to save everyone, but the Princess Peach's propaganda machine turns him into the villain. Mario is just the face man to keep people in line. Shame on Mario for stomping all over those mushrooms!
This was unexpected haha.
Awesome. That is all I must say.
i can't be worth much what with the plumbing all messed up and the floors falling out from under your feet...and there is the whole haunted courtyard thing
Oh my gosh. You'd also have to count everything inside: the paintings, the stars, the murals. But then things depreciate the value. The fact that it's haunted prob'ly doesn't help.
That's just one. what if we add in the other castle's?
Now how much is Hyrule castle worth?
WTF! Princess Peach is rich beyond imagination. So the next time I save her I want more than a kiss.
Princess Peach is a freaking Suga' Momma!
I want to know the worth of SotN's castle.
