You will be flipping houses and making a profit in this sim time management Mac game. You go from town to town and the mayor will give you instructions and goals to meet for  each town.

There are 2 modes of play: Casual and Career. There are many ways to earn income in this play. You can collect rent on units you already own, you can buy and sell homes, and upgrade your houses to get more money. You must also figure in your costs for the property, the materials, the workers and blueprints. The game is straightforward. You click on the property then click on the type of home you have available to you and can afford. The rent takes care of it itself and you can hear the register when you have the money. That’s the best part of the game.  There are always repairs to be made and that will cost money. If you can afford to do so, you can demolish your old home and rebuild.

The game board is drafted so it is easily accessible to get all your information quickly and efficiently. At the bottom of the screen there are tabs you get your information from such as your money and goals, workers, material and blueprints. When you click on each tab it will give you data for your next move. Sometimes you will not be able to build because of locked houses or lack of money.

Build a Lot is your typical sim time management play and is a good one to start with if you are new to this kind of play, but is difficult enough for seasoned veterans. Not to say it is easier, but it appears less hectic than sim plays like County Fair. Build your own town and collect your rent and commissions for a fun and educational sim play.
