RoxyCyn Posted June 4, 2019 Share Posted June 4, 2019 Regarding the new land pricing/monthly tier changes. I applaud these new changes. I have 2 homesteads from the same well known landowner and I've been very happy with the service so far. One I've had for 7 years and the other for almost 2 years now. With the announcement of the new tier pricing for full regions I contacted the realtor/land owner and they were not even aware of the changes. I discussed it at length and provided the link to the page explaining the new changes. Today I contacted her again because I'd like to move to a full region now for my home and business. The response from this rather large, well known realtor/landowner was a bit disheartening: "Hello! here is a message from one of our higher ups "During the past 24 months we reduced a lot of rental rates on a lot of sims/parcels. Now Linden Lab lowered some of their rates while raising other fees. As always we will observe how that impacts the market and adjust accordingly so that supply and demand gets properly balanced and expenses covered.' " "we do not have tier price adjustments yet as we still have to study the impact so we can adjust without losses." If they are going to continue charging the old tier pricing with the new changes in-place, this new pricing is of no benefit to the end user that's willing to pay tiers to maintain businesses, homes and provide regions for others to use. Charging the old tier to the end-user/customer while getting a reduction directly from Linden Labs effectively overcharges the end-user on the monthly tier while creating higher profits for the landowner. I seriously doubt that was the intent of Linden Labs and in so doing will defeat the purpose of the land tier reduction, in my humble opinion.
