Additional Information: Selling Land to A Specific Resident

In situations where you wish to sell your land to a specific Resident, it is very important that you take advantage of the Sell the land to setting. Some Residents have the ability to quickly detect and buy land for sale at below-market prices; selling your land to a specific Resident prevents any chance of someone else accidentally buying the land.

  1. Right-click the land and select About Land.
  2. Click the General tab
  3. Click the Sell Land button.
  4. Set Set your desired sale price.
  5. For the Sell the land to option, choose Specific user.
  6. Click the Select button.
  7. Enter the buyer's name into the Choose Resident window.Kbsd kb choose resident.jpg
  8. Click the Find button and select the buyer's name.
  9. Click the Select button.

  11. Review your land sale information.
  12. Click OK.

Maturity Ratings

If you have set your land for sale to a specific Resident, they will need to change their maturity setting so that it is adequate to make the purchase. For example, if you set Mature land for sale to a Resident who has a PG only maturity preference setting, they need to change their maturity preference to PG and Mature, or they will not be able to purchase the land. Residents who are not able to adjust their maturity preferences to the PG, Mature and Adult setting should see the Knowledge Base article How to become verified as an adult for additional information.
