MA: Estate Development Opportunities Available Now

Discussion in 'Entropia News' started by EP-Newsbot, Dec 11, 2009.

  1. Its a fact and landareas close to a tp hasnt sold for over 200k for months now if not even longer. You might not have noticed but in the batch of lands that went on sale some months ago there was a land really close to a tp that went for 135k.

    With those possibilities...you think someone would pay 100-150k for JUST a tp to their land? They are better off buying a 2nd piece of land
  2. Thx bergerman for the info... All these years I had no idea that service centres in AV owned LA's were purchased ontop of the area itself :o. I thought that MA just put them there as a kind of good-will getsure - and the terminals are certainly expensive.

    Cough, sputter. Believe me the only good-will from MA is the free download of the game LOL.

    Up until now I think any service centre buildings that you saw in an avatar owned land area were put there by MA, as part of the land area. No doubt those land areas sold for higher prices just because they included features such as a TP, service centre etc. I don't think that land owners paid for them as optional extras.

    Most of the land areas that I recall hunting in had no service centre, usually a revive terminal near the claim marker, no repair or trade terminals. So, with these new options that MA are offering, a land owner could upgrade their land to include some of these terminals and features.

    I think this is good feature. Now land owners can do some extra investing to make land area more interesting. For example LA that is now far from tp can get tp and service centre, and ppl will go there more

  6. I say if you are buying an LA and expect to get its price back in taxes, THEN you are in for a treat.

    How many estates except CND have given their purchase price back to the owner? When you invest in something like this you have to take into account two things:

    1. Estates future market value
    2. Income from estate

    If 1+2 is a higher number than what you have paid, it's a good deal.

    If it is true about LA values as you say (I have no idea), then these owners might have made a bad deal. That doesn't change the fact that you have to consider both 1 and 2 above when investing in estates like these. Only taking 2 into account would be pretty stupid.

    depends on when they brought them to some degree, and how quick you want to see your return. early investors have probably made many times over their outlay. as for today, Marco suggested some numbers the other day on EF, Knuckles suggests some numbers here.

    I expect the true numbers are somwhere inbetween. the most telling thing is the prices at which Qetesh, Deathifier and other owners buy up LAs for, since they do actually know how much they will return.
  8. hmmm... lots to think about... Answers from MA on emails and support tickets are not coming quick enough to let people know if they need to deposit on the next payday or not to get in on the December special.

    Shop item upgrade is cheap compared to shopkeepers' current prices... but this may cause sk market to crash?!?... If it does not... when MA releases a lot more sk's it might cause a crash... Booth market value may climb since 30 slots on rent free property is pretty sweet... I'm tempted to buy my booth back, but don't have the peds for it at the moment since I kind of like having a shop with a window near a tp instead of being stuck in the hallway behind there in a tiny booth.

    This could do some interesting things to the overall rce... especially since no one knows yet (at least not officially) how many shops and how many items will be in the shops on new planets...

    IronKnight Let's go shoot something!

    the good thing is "like Anna said" some places take a long time to get to. A tp there would make it faster and or cheaper to get to.

    look at OLA 32 out in the middle. They could use one....
    "Shinook is South and Switzerland is North"

    but it may not be as fun if every land area had a tp on it.

    sorry I could not figure out how to insert the image :(
