Could These TV Characters Really Afford Their Ridiculously Huge Homes?

Most Friends fans love Monica Geller’s ’90s-chic apartment, but hate the fact that Monica and Rachel Green were two struggling twentysomethings when the show started and only paid $200 in rent. For a two-bedroom and two-bathroom apartment in NYC’s Greenwich Village, $200 rent is laugh-’til-it-hurts funny these days, which is why we love real estate site Movato’s awesome study on which TV sitcom characters could actually afford their huge apartments and houses.

Using their rule of thumb that 30 percent of your monthly income is appropriate for a monthly rent or mortgage payment, the site determined what the character’s current income and rent or mortgage payment would be and whether or not they could afford their pad.

Based on the calculations, I think Full House fans will be pretty surprised that nine people (and one dog) sharing a gigantic Victorian home isn’t the smartest financial choice.
