Wayne Manor is a sprawling 42,500-square-foot mansion on 150 acres of land sitting atop an über man cave, so the Dark Knight isn’t likely to put the property on the market – unless he’s really motivated.
So, let’s say some super-vision villain peeps Batman’s alter ego and finds out where he lives, forcing Bruce Wayne to quickly pull up stakes.
The zillionaire Wayne wants to keep the sale quiet, so he goes the pocket listing route, chooses the almost-as-wealthy Ken DeLeon to broker the deal and the Caped Crusader is packed up and gone before you can say, “Robin! To the Batcave!”
If DeLeon brings in the buyer and takes the full 6 percent cut, he’s into the Batman for a cool $1.9 million and change – maybe more.
How do we know that?
Concocting a tongue-in-cheek “appraisal,” in advance of the new Batman movie, “The Dark Knight Rises,” Movoto.com determined Wayne Manor is worth $32.1 million and the real estate listing web site has the comparables to prove it.
When Forbes took a shot at it and tossed in the Batcave, the value jumped to $105 million. (It’s all that high-end Bat Security technology that makes Homeland Security look like an ADT home security system.)
