The switch in Animal Crossing is priced at 29,980 bells. This is its real world price in Japanese yen, or $269.69~ (nice). With this info, we can extrapolate the prices of other objects in Animal Crossing. This means a tarantula costs $72.

I have my PO Box info ready for that check MatPat.

@mint thats on the higher end but its a p accurate number for a Goliath Birdeater, so that checks out

@KitRedgrave ol Tom is wise, the real value is in the labor brought to the island!

@purple @KitRedgrave If you aren't worried about banks and mortgage lenders, it's not too bad to put up a small house at the cost of materials and labor.

@KitRedgrave @mint there's no land ownership (folks can just place their houses wherever) and all residential construction work is so simple that it can be enacted by a tanooki and his two tween relatives overnight, so we have to assume that everything is prefabricated to a large extent. On that basis you have to think less about the price of real estate and more about the price of sheds.
