Land Shopping Strategy

Thursday, May 24, 2007 Thursday, May 24, 2007

Hmm, having decided I need an 8192 parcel, what should I pay for it? Market price, it turns out. I don't have any brainiac real estate strategy, but I do have some considerations:

  • I want to be on a new sim. My particle effects will be demonstrated at the new shop, so I want as much horsepower available as possible
  • I want to be on mainland. I do not want to be at the mercy of a potentially maniacal island owner. I have had too many friends get suddenly ejected - what happens to a business in that situation? (Recall my thoughts on moving and landmarks in the last post)
  • I want to have neighbors that are compatible. “Compatible?” Well, I am not precisely sure what that means – I think I don't want neighbors who have operations or perform role-playing that do not work beside me
  • I would like to have neighbors who might happen to be drawing people that could also be my customers. A busy club would be of interest, for example
  • I want the land to be flat, so that I can easily build a shop. Many parcels I've seen recently are hugely mountainous and could be difficult to use
Of course, parcels and their operations come and go, so no matter what area I select it really won't make much difference over the long term. Hopefully, I will score some land soon.
