unReal Estate: Can You Make A Billion In Ten Minutes?

unrealestate

Can you make a billion in real estate in ten minutes?

Find out in the neat online game unReal Estate – free to play right here. But be careful… it’s addictive.

How To Play

You’re an investor, starting with a modest five figure cash fund. The game begins in December 1999.  Time passes — fast — as eight global markets lie before you.  The game ends in the year 2100.

It’s time to borrow, buy and sell.  But where?  When?  Hold how long?

Tips

  • First off, you’re probably going to want to turn off the music. The button is on the lower right corner of the screen.
  • To get more information about your personal balance sheet, click the right-pointing triangle just to the right of your Net Worth figure across the top of the game screen.
  • The global market for property undergoes booms and recessions, indicated in the lower left corner.
  • To me, it looks like the rent you receive from property is 7 or 8 percent of annual property value.
  • Booms seem to last for ten years, recessions for five.

Good luck!
