How Expensive Are The Houses Of The GTA V Protagonists?

Real estate blog Movoto has already determined the real-world value of Prince Peach's castle as well as Dracula's castle in Castlevania. Now, they are back to tell the world what it's been dying to know – how much it would cost to buy Michael, Franklin, and Trevor's houses if they were real. The answer is a total of $26 million.

Since Los Santos and Blaine County are based on real world locations, Movoto was able to determine the value of the Grand Theft Auto V houses by finding square footage costs in the real world. 

The cheapest home, of course, belongs to Trevor. The meth and arms dealer lives a simple life in a trailer house located in Sandy Shores, based off of the actual Desert Shores near Palm Springs, California. The land and mobile home would have a combined real-world value of $6,695. 

Franklin's house, on the other hand, is much more expensive. Situated in the virtual equivalent of the Hollywood Hills, this marvelous home would cost nearly $8 million dollars to own. A separate house for Chop costs an additional $250.

Finally, Michael's extravagant pad, which includes a tennis court and pool, is valued at more than $18 million dollars. It is located in Rockford Hills, a reproduction of Beverly Hills. The home, however, is also occupied by two ungrateful children and a cheating wife. Personally, I'd rather live in Trevor's trailer.

Find out more about the process that went into determining these values below or at the Movoto website. While you're at it, catch up on recent news about GTA V's upcoming patch.
