Barney says to Andy in this episode that his real estate commissions (which are 5% of the sale price) total $3,478.00 for the three homes he is selling, which means that they are selling for a combined amount of $69,560. Based on these three homes, we can conclude that the average price for a home in Mayberry is roughly $23,000. In 1965, the median price of homes nationally was almost exactly $20,000.
Opie: (to Andy) You mean, the kids should be honest and the grown-ups don't have to be?
