How much is nostalgia worth? 

For "Brady Bunch" fan Tina Trahan of Elmhurst, Illinois, childhood memories of Mike, Carol, Greg, Marcia, Peter, Jan, Bobby, Cindy and Alice are worth $3.2 million.

According to The Wall Street JournalHGTV sold the Los Angeles home that served as the exterior backdrop for the 1970s show. 

While $3.2 million seems like a pretty penny, it’s down from the original asking price of $5.5 million. The home was part of HGTV’s 2019 series "A Very Brady Renovation" as the Property Brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott worked with the show’s cast to re-create the interior of the house. 

The home is in the North Hollywood neighborhood. It has five bedrooms and five bathrooms. HGTV said it bought the house for $3.5 million and spent almost $2 million during the renovations. HGTV added 2,000 square feet of additional space during the renovation.

"Standout features in the completed home include the iconic floating staircase, the burnt-orange-and-avocado-green kitchen, the kids' Jack-n-Jill bathroom and a backyard with a swing set, teeter totter and Tiger's dog house," the network said in a statement. 

The new owner plans to keep the period-perfect renovations intact. In an interview with Patch, Trahan said she would not live in the house but instead use it for events to raise money for charity.
