“Whatever happened to predictability? The milkman, the paperboy, evening TV?…” You know how the rest of the song goes. You can’t help but sing it any time that “Full House” is mentioned because it is one of those theme songs that get stuck in your head. Well, get ready to hum it non-stop, because you’re going to see quite a bit of news about the “Full House” house over the next few weeks. It is going to be on the market!

That’s right, in April, the home featured in “Full House” will be put back on the real estate market, according to Architectural Digest. Did you know the current owner of the house is actually Jeff Franklin, the creator and executive producer of “Full House” and the revival spin-off series “Fuller House.” He purchased the home in 2016 for a whopping $4 million, the same year that the Netflix reboot was announced and later debuted. Now that “Fuller House” is coming to a close, with the fifth and final season premiering on Netflix later in 2019, it looks like Jeff is ready to say goodbye once again.

The famous house sits at 1709 Broderick Street in San Francisco, California. Since “Full House” debuted in the late ’80s, the home has attracted many tourists over the years. Did you know that the original owners of the home banned production from filming the exterior of the house after the initial 1987 shoot? For the most part, the actual home was barely used in production. Though that isn’t entirely uncommon, as using sound stages for interior shots is a normal practice in Hollywood.

However, Jeff Franklin shared a statement that explained some of the backlashes he experienced when he purchased the home in 2016. He redid the front of the home to match the original “Full House” days and had planned to remodel the inside of the home as well. But when he was issued a building permit in 2017, neighbors appealed because they had not been given prior notice. Once the reboot was announced, the handful of tourists that visited the home turned into hundreds each day, which made neighbors wary. They feared if he redid the interior of the home as well, the tourist attraction would become too overwhelming, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

In his statement, Jeff said:

“The home will always have tremendous emotional significance to me. It is a symbol of the shows I love, and the second family I have formed with the casts of ‘Full’ and ‘Fuller House.’ Now that ‘Fuller House’ is ending, I will be putting the home back on the market. I hope to find a buyer who wants to make it a full house once again.”

At this time, the price of the home hasn’t been announced. It is set to be put back on the real estate market toward the end of April. In the meantime, we’re looking up how much an anchor makes on “Wake Up, San Fransico.”
