The Soaring Price of UO Real Estate!!

    Well, it's all about Location, ain't it?
    And it seems that the Elite Address to own your home is Oceania!!
    You think that's funny?
    Oh no, the prices of Luna properties are heading to the stars on my home shard!!!

    I posted this particular *coughs* bargain on Oceania Forum, but really, it's worth sharing with the whole community, just so no-one misses out on their chance to snap this little gem up!!!

    And, before you all go rushing off to count your gold in the bank...you'll need a bit of the folding stuff..quite a bit, actually:

    <center>[​IMG]</center>

    Now surely this Prime Location can't last long at the meagre opening price of US$1500.00, so be quick and get your bids in NOW!!

    Note. This player doesn't represent the whole shard oceania, in fact we tend to sell things a lot cheaper than market price due to lack of ability to sell things due to lack of population [​IMG]

    Not really surprising though, since some folks think of Luna as godlands or something and pay 4.5 k for an engraving tool on vendors in Luna, rather than go even to Minoc to get em for 350gp sooo there will be those that honestly feel a puny plot on Luna even is worth hundreds and be some just as willing to pay that too...........but then.............no accounting for some folks tastes ! HAHA

    ME you cant GIVE ME LUNA houses...ewwwwwwwwwwwww nay not for me !!
    Be like suburbia all on top each other like zoo animals in their cubicles. bleh.

    I am very happy to be the ONLY one on Minoc shore line beside myself and one other one behind my own and still lots of tiles between us on Ches. and on Siege im on the green t line NW brit...no one beside me there ..all in a row single file going up from the moat to the cliffs way in back...closest 'overgrown' house is my neighbor ie..Lord British's house ! HAHA I can dig it !

    I would pay MORE to be free and away from any Luna where I'd feel like I am stuck in some ..um cubicle city.

    That house would go for like double that on Atlantic. Good ol' Luna.

    Most Luna houses would go for a max of 100mil normally, but this...... is just ridiculous.
     
  10. [​IMG] Perhaps on Atlantic (check with JC ? [​IMG])...but now your just making fun of him for "misunderstanding" The "meaning" of location, location, location....possibly "bargain" too [​IMG]

    Maybe IF he could get Ron Popeil to give a special one time limited availability offer ...

    I doubt it sells for that price. Chessy has a luna house up for sale the guy wants less than that about 1/3rd less or will take a considerable amount of in game currency. It's been for sale for about 3 months now. Chessy is much more populated than Oceania so I doubt the perk of "Location" will draw players to buy it.

    Luna house prices differ quite a bit in terms of size and location inside of luna. This house is arguably the best spot in Luna. On Atlantic, it would definitely go for more than 2k usd. No clue about Oceania.

    Now that is just insane. I remember back in '99-2000 a castle/keep selling for that much. But that was when real estate was rare. Now ...
    all you gotta do is look and you can place a house. Thanks to the "One house per account" rule.

    Though I do miss the One house per account, per shard. Sure bets the old one houser per char.

    I have a solution to this BS. Take the little campfire planed for Magincia and put it where we really need a fire to burn everything to the ground.

    1- I have an Iron ingot for $2,000 on Napa. Does that mean the price of ingots is going through the roof? This property is for sale, but it hasn't sold. Watch how long it remains for sale.
    2- Maybe that's in Australian Dollars rather than US dollars. I don't know the current rate, but Australian Dollars are usually worth less than US dollars.
     
  17. 1500 AUD is app. 1356 USD.

    still IMHO everybody even considering something like that needs urgent attention from his psychiatrist
     
  18. lol

    I'd rather buy a really cheap car and deliberately run it into a tree.
     
  19. Agreed whole heartedly...lol

    Why anyone would buy real estate in this multi problematic game is beyond me.

    Actually using real cash for a pixel house sounds nuts. [​IMG]

    I am the guy selling the Luna plot and trust me it sucks....
    I have been trying to sell it for months and I am willing to take just about anything.
    The funny thing is I have read Stratics for years about the great value of a Luna houses, well i'm here to tell you they are hard as hell to sell!
    I have never posted before but when I was mentioned I felt compelled to post.
    The funny thing is I think my plot will hold 3 smaller house and have posted for the scripters to buy it!
    someone, anyone please buy it!

    The poor tree! What did that tree ever do to you?

  22. Lame...but it would be more funny if EA banned the guy for trying to sell the house for real life money, and then it went condemned.

    After reading this I sat in my chair and lol Luna houses are not hard to sell at all the thing that you are doing wrong is trying to get to much for it. If you walked into luna bank and said 1 million gold how fast would it sell ? 2 mill? 5 mill? 20 mill? 100 mill? would still prob go really fast but thats where it gets questionable everything has a vaule but just becuase you think its worth more than anyone else thinks its worth doesnt make you right

    FYI I have turned down offeres over 500 million and I think I can say that one does not aquire a Luna house without knowing the value of things......

    I'm sure one of the scripters that have gotten RL riches from the game will buy it eventually...sure they're just trying to see which of 50 accounts to put it on.

    But on another note, you may try selling it on uotreasures (ooh can I say that??..oh well too late now) They seem to have success in selling high end items and real estate.
     
  26. I did not know a house could go in that spot. hrmm. The second ugliest Luna house on LS says the same price. Has for maybe a year. lol
