$400 might be an exorbitant amount of Monopoly money to spend on Boardwalk, but if you were to buy a property there in real life, you’d be spending as much as $6,690. Yikes.
Real estate website Movoto has just published the updated prices of the properties on a Monopoly board—remember, the game is modelled after real-world Atlantic City—based on actual home prices on streets featured in the game.
To make the comparisons more realistic, Movoto modernized today’s prices by removing two zeroes from home prices listed on the current market (ie. that $669,000 condo on Boardwalk becomes $6,690). Some of the Atlantic City streets don’t currently have any homes for sale, and a few don’t have any homes at all.
Movoto found that the more expensive homes are closer to the water, and that some of the “cheaper” properties on the board would be a lot more valuable today.
Here are a few of the more notable properties:
- Marvin Gardens: Then—$250 Now—$11,750
- Baltic Avenue: Then—$80 Now—$1,790
- Vermont: Then—$100 Now—$4,000
- St. Charles Place: Then—$170 No—-$4,000
- Ventor Avenue: Then—$280 Now—$220
- Pacific Avenue: Then—$350 Now—$3,700
- Boardwalk: Then—$400 Now—$600 to $6,690
