    I haven't had much time to play SH in my A and B towns, so just getting started there.

    But in my RTTF town, I got 10 of each of the buildings and did the upgrades to unlock characters. I have characters unlocked that I don't even have yet (Legs/Louie); I wanted the storage.

    I now have more land in SH than I have in SF. :)

    The 150% XP bonus is causing me to XP-level up fast.

    Now back to grinding $$ for the next quest-required buildings in SF.

    I've been focusing on Modern Mansions because the real estate payouts are so big, and the cost in items to upgrade is relatively low
    (30 pills, 20 award statues for Lev 5 Modern Mansion upgrade vs 125 pills, 50 award statues for Lev 5 Business Center)

    and then Valet Parking to use up any Cell Phones and Yoga Mats i have to spare

    I'm going to keep grinding those 2 buildings until I am maxed out, then move on to the others

    Recently finished getting all of the land and upgraded the condos to what I want 1 at each level, the rest at level 5. I'm currently working on the Classic Mansion upgrades, I've got 7 level 4 and 3 level 3 (I like that I can still have the level 1 appearance if it's a level 5 mansion). Will be focusing on Business Center next.

    Great ideas some of y'all have. I chose condos cause I liked The look of them. See no need or no place to put valet parking but I can store them can't I?

    I just got a mm to level 5 and that earned me S Lake! Woo Hoo!

    Each valet parking gives a 3% XP bonus. You would not get that bonus if you store them. You keep the REV though.

    See http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/10344781.page for the XP bonus chart.

    Congrats on getting the Lake!

    I have all of the land, and 9 out of 10 of each type of building. I don't want to fully upgrade all of the buildings, so I've been buying decorations to increase REV (which takes quite awhile, so no clue when I'll hit 1 billion). Additionally, my overflowing inventory is now bursting at the seams with certain SFH items (especially Classy Fountain, since that's the only store item available for Electronic Devices...)

    So you're saying If I store any buildings made for SH, than I lose the extra XP?

    That's what I've read people say here. I've not tried it myself because I didn't want the inventory glitch to strike me. If you are willing to take a chance on an undesired inventory glitch, you can test this by putting a bunch of them in inventory and then collecting on some task/building and computing what the bonus is.
