Bold Burner Posted December 27, 2022 Share Posted December 27, 2022 I might have been calculated wrongly so please correct me if I'm wrong. I was comparing prices of homesteads and I noticed something that I found odd at first sight so I started calculating. When I as EU resident want to buy a homestead from Linden Labs I pay a monthly fee of 109 Euros. This excludes tax, which in my country is 21%. For this calculation I left out the tax as I presume taxes are different by state in USA and recently they have to pay that too if I read correctly. I noticed homesteads are being rented out for L$6500 weekly I multiply that by 52.12 then divide it by 12 then I get monthly cost for rent = L$28242.50 When I want to buy this amount from Linden Lab then I have to pay: $116.23 (excluded transaction fee) which is $7.23 more than the monthly tier for the homestead. So in essence they are losing money per month. How is it possible for them to make profit? How is it possible for competition to compete them? Do larger estates get quantum discount? And if so isn't that unfair to starters in the estate business? Could someone elaborate on this and tell me what I'm missing, in my calculation and/or observation? kind regards. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
