$999,999?

Recommended Posts

I was exploring and happened to come up on a 1024 parcel with a store on it. The parcel was set to sell for $999,999  The store owner was there and I asked her why she was selling her land that no one would even think about buying for $999,999 So she informed me it helps generate traffic to her store. She logged off before I could ask her more. So my question is how does that generate traffic? I looked at her parcel traffic it only had 13 traffic.

She's trying to get missleading trafffic from free land sales listings more than likely.  Not sure how good traffic is when all you get are ticked off people.

I've done the same sort of thing before, for two reasons:

 

For one, you get the free land listing where you can put advertising info for your biz.

 

Second, you never know how desparate someone might be to own your lot.  I would generally set the sale price to about 3x what the "going rate" is.  For example, I had a lot that was, at the time, worth about 20,000L.  I set it for sale for 60,000L to get the free land listing, and the guy behind me, unknown to me, had been buying up all the lots in the sim in an attempt to buy up the entire sim.... He bought the lot, and I went and bought more land much cheaper, moved, and smiled at all the L's I had in my account.  I also helped a friend make even more when he was in a situation where someone was quitely buying up the sim.  He had noticed, but didn't think to set his lot for sale for an outrageous amount.  I convicined him to, and he said the guy would never buy it.  3 days later, he said he was going to lower the lot, and I said, no, double it and the guy will buy it before you double it again... so he did, and the guy DOVE on it...lol.  He walked away with something over $500 USD in profit ;)
