Little change in Milehouse

There has been little change in Milehouse in the pats week or so , land sales have slowed though the one inland owner has expanded her land. Her privacy walls now textured grass coloured to blend in a little better with the rest of the environment.

The Linden map now shows a reasonably up to date Milehouse image , being updated sometime between the 25th and 28th of October.

One new owner purchased 4096sqm in the North East of the Sim , then expanded with another 2048sqm, building their own little Sim within a Sim, using large walls and roof to seal themselves off from the rest of the sim.

Over the past week the Milehouse waterfront has slowly been bought up by two individuals and subdivided for resale or rental . Several modern style properties have been built and simple landscaping of the waterfront plots has taken place.

It looks as if three of the plots have been re-sold to homesteaders, and several others are now available for sale by the new owners. None of the inland plots have changed ownership, all still for sale at the $22000 for 2048sqm rate .

Milehouse Auction Closed

The auction for the Milehouse SIM ended 15 minutes ago with a top bid of $2,000. In total there were 10 bids . Land traffic rose to 785  and I personally witnessed 12 other Avatars visiting the SIM in the past 36 hours 5 of these being newly spawned in the past 2 days.  Ownership of the land has yet to change, still recording Governor Linden as owner but I assume there are several days admin before the land is transferred.
