Ever wonder what it would be like to live in the homes (or at least the neighborhoods) of your favorite TV characters? Maybe you see yourself living in a cheery and bright single-family home like Dead to Me character Jen Harding. Or perhaps you're more of a documentary fan and have been thinking about hunkering down in the neighborhoods of Tiger King stars Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin.

The folks at Compare the Market, a price comparison platform, took a look at the properties seen in some of today's most popular TV shows and started crunching numbers. Using zip codes, the team was able to calculate the average home price in the filming locations of these shows. While many of these homes are fictional and don't actually exist, these prices give you a good idea of how much a place in the area would go for.

Compare the Market compiled their results into a study titled "Property prices in famous TV locations." You can check it out here. Below, we've listed some highlights.

Stranger Things: The Wheeler family home

Stranger Things may be set in Hawkins, Indiana but the show is actually filmed in East Point, Georgia. The average property price in that area is $190,121. In particular, a single-family residence like Mike and Nancy Wheeler's home would cost you about $195,000. Meanwhile, a condo averages about $141,000.

Dead to Me: Jen Harding's home

The Netflix original comedy-thriller Dead to Me is filmed in Sherman Oaks, California. To live like Jen is going to cost you a pretty penny. A typical one-family home is about $1.53 million. Looking for somewhere smaller? A condo will put you out $604,000. The average property price sits at almost $1.3 million.

This Is Us: The Pearson family home

In the show's filming location of Eagle Rock, Los Angeles, the average property price sits at $997, 802. A single-family residence would cost you $1.03 million while the average condo price is around $602,000.

Tiger King: The once-neighborhood of Joe Exotic and current neighborhood of Carole Baskin

This one's a bit of a wild card. Now if you're in the market for a piece of land to open a zoo or a rescue, I can't help you. But if you watched the documentary and wondered what it would be like to live in Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin's neck of the woods, here are the stats:For fans of Joe Exotic, the average property price to live in Wynnewood, Oklahoma (where the now-closed G.W. Zoo is located) is $85,234. If you want to live on Carole Baskin's Big Cat Rescue (perhaps ride some bikes with her in the morning), it would cost you over three times the price. The average property price in Easy St Florida, where Big Cat Rescue is located, is $280,748.

Ozark: The Byrde family home

Though the show takes place in the eponymous Ozark region of Missouri, it's filmed in Flowery Branch, Georgia, where the average property price sits at $271,107. To live in a single-family residence like the Byrdes' house, it would cost you roughly about $299,000. Meanwhile, a condo would cost you around $211,000.
