This Gingerbread House Costs $40,000 Per Square Foot

If you’re thinking about making a smart real estate investment, you’ll want to stay away from online luxury retailer VeryFirstTo and its “most precious Christmas gingerbread house ever.” Why? Because it will set you back $79,910.

Yes, $79,910.

When you account for its size — it’s approximately 26 by 14 by 18 inches — the price tag works out to about $40,000 per square foot.

By comparison, the average price per square foot for homes in Los Angeles was $781 in November. Here in the Beach Cities, Manhattan Beach led the pack at $1061 per square foot in November, followed by Hermosa Beach at $749 and Redondo Beach at $515.

And, unlike this desert home, real-life new home doesn’t have an expiration or “enjoy by” date.

Of course, most homes don’t come adorned with 150 AAAA grade South Sea Pearls and a 5 carat unheated Mozambique Ruby either.

Did I mention that shipping is extra?
