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.

Oh man. I'll be right back, there is a couple of vases I have to break.
At least now we know that the insane property value is the thing driving Mario and Bowser's tug of war with Peach.
i guess princess peach has sold a lot of 'shrooms' in her day to afford a castle like that...
I can't imagine what the castle would cost in coins. Considering that coins are just left all over the place in the mushroom kingdom the exchange rate from dollars to coins must be like 1000:1.
Yeah I've seen this before, pretty cool. I saw one where it showed why Bowser is the best Mario character due to how he can take control of an entire kingdom within a couple of days. I don't remember all the details though and as to why Mario beats him every time. But I agree with them, Bowser is the best Mario character!
Chump change brah
He's either after her money or he's addicted to mushrooms. Either way, I'll never feel the same way about Mario.
Pretty sure its worth a lot more, they didnt take into account the amount of property within the paintings. However, I think there is a lot of structural damage to it. I cant imagine the support system being durable after Bowser took it to the sky.
No wonder Peach is always getting kidnapped. Now if Bowser could only figure out how to issue ransom demands to people with money instead of penniless yet heroic plumbers.
not only that... I heard she has a LOT of castles...
