Tips on raising real estate efficiently?

raising 1 condo to Level 5 first, rather than all of them to level 2, etc. Then rinse and repeat.

this jumps your real estate points high enough that you start unlocking more jobs for more simpsons faster.

and once you have 3 simpsons slaving away in each of the factories (Ralph is hilarious as forced child labor), then you're able to produce at least 15 or 20 of each item (usually 50), which is enough to no longer be limited in what you can do with that item (you can now buy land with it, or upgrade buildings, etc.) So it's off to the races once you clear those limitation hurdles. Mostly by getting your real estate $ total sky high sooner rather than later, which also unlocks those jobs and then you must pay the 1-time bribe to the factory to get the new Simpson hired once they've been unlocked. (It's very unionized).

Coffee is the item that gets crunched the most and god bless those who don't have Squeaky Voiced Teen. The real bear is getting the 75 coffee needed to raise a condo to level .... 4? After you're at level 4, pushing it to 5 is actually quite easy by comparison, and pays the best. Building Ipod gizmos cannibalizes your Coffee, so these two resources are fighting each other for availability...... and both are of course required for many tasks. I've recently been exploring ideas like making lots of coffee first and only then resuming Ipod manufacturing.... but basically it's a designed conflict to prolong the fun.

    Ok. right now my condo costs 25 smartphones to upgrade but my storage only holds 20. I have 2 buildings waiting to finish in about 7 hours but that will only give me 700k value of the 1.1m I need to increase my technology storage.

    Oh I didn't see the mansion will be upgradable too when that's finished. Hopefully that will push me over the hump...

    1. Diversify. Build every building type they have different things needed for upgrades so it's better not to put all your eggs in one basket, otherwise you're gonna find yourself in a coffee crush while maxing out other items with nothing to spend them on.

    2. Stagger. Dont try to upgrade them all to level 2, then all to level 3 and so on. Just get One of each type up to a high-ish level (first get one of each to 3, then to 4 then 5).

    3. Spend Wisely. Better to spend that 20 coffees on a 1.5M valued upgrade than spend 15 coffees for a $750k valued upgrade.

    4. Dont stop. When you max out, spend some. When you first unlock the Pharma there's NOTHING to spend pills on except vineyards.

    5. Spend on people before buildings. If you have to choose, unlock the next worker instead of upgrading a building.

    6. You dont have to put it all in one place. Many of the decorations can move over to SF. SH gets cluttered fast, spread the wealth.

    Right, at first you have to eek it out by adding 100K-300K items here and there when possible. If you've maxed out your storage and you sense you won't be able to add more storage anytime soon, spend all those resources on something from the store that bumps your real estate a bit until you cross the next threshold.

    If you can make chairs fast, get that up to 200 and buy a speedboat. Those increase your real estate instantly, and I think it's 300k each time ... Also, before going to bed, start as many condos as you can jam into your land ... . In the morning, theyll be finished, and you collect the payoff, and you can always store them after getting the money.

    unlock the next worker, it'll increase your storage.

    Also premium items give you a sizeable bump i bought both of the decos for that reason alone.
