Property

(Redirected from Properties)

A Property is a player-owned entity that the player can live in. All players have a default Shack that they start with (this can't be sold). The primary purpose of having a property is to maximise one's max Happy. Upgrading one's property usually results in increasing one's max Happy: with a higher Happy value, the more Fighting Stats one will gain.

The three most expensive properties also provide other benefits in addition to increased Happy.

Lease

If the player doesn't have enough buying power to purchase a type of Property, they can lease the type of property from other players. The landlord has full control over leasing market price, leasing length, and upgrades before the tenant "accepts" the terms. Once the lease is in effect, neither party can alter the terms (price, length including canceling the lease, and upgrades).

Leasing price is all paid upfront, no daily fees are paid to the landlord. However, staff fees still apply, and will rack up until the end of the lease. If there is an outstanding upkeep on the property at the end of the lease, the debt is transferred over to Duke [4] to manage.

In rented properties, the vault upgrade cannot be accessed.

From 10/06/21, Property landlords can offer their tenants an extension to their lease before the end of their contract.

As long as the rental duration doesn't exceed a maximum of 100 days, contracts can be extended and renewed at any point during the occupancy.

Owning

There are various discounts that can reduce the price of purchasing/upgrading properties:

  • ELBT Stock Benefit - 10% discount to all home upgrade costs
  • 10* Property Broker - 10% discount to all home upgrade costs
  • LAW2910
    Law of Property
    • Gain a 5% discount when buying properties from the estate agents
    • Gain 75 intelligence upon completion
    • Gain 25 endurance upon completion
    - 5% discount to purchasing properties from the Estate Agents.

Moving

  • Move in: Once you own or rent a property, you will get an option to move in. You can only use the facilities of the property after moving in. Your spouse can also move in to any property owned/rented by you and not under lease. They can't hire staff. The vault can only be used with your permission, which you can revoke at any point of time.
  • Move Out: You can only change in to another property to leave the present property. You can not move in to another property without first firing all the hired staff and clearing the balance upkeep. You need not kick your spouse to move out. They can continue staying in the property, but they can not hire any staff.
  • Both you and your spouse can pay the upkeep. If you are living in your spouse's property you can move in and out freely.


Additional Details
  • Since the update that added the extra-large vaults the ability to share your vault with your spouse also became available. This can be enabled/disabled by going to your vault and clicking said button.
  • Properties that are owned may be sold by placing the property into the Selling Market, or by selling directly to the Estate Agent. (Requires the property to be vacant)

House Upgrades

Note: Purchasing a lower-tiered upgrade does not decrease the cost of the next one. For example, if you purchase the 'Large' vault upgrade for $98,000,000, you will still need to pay the full $215,000,000 for the 'Extra Large'.

Additional properties' benefits

Since 24/05/12, you can have 4 additional perks, thanks to property upgrades:

Property: + Access to Airstrip
Property: + 1% Life Regeneration (Medical facility)
Property: + 2% Damage (Shooting range)
Property: + 2% Gym Gains (Swimming pool)

Those benefits were added in the 4.4.08 update, but most players haven't been aware of the last two.

Unique Properties

In addition to the standard 14 properties in Torn, from a Trailer to a Private Island there are also an additional 12 unique properties.

These were originally auctioned off in 2011 in a one-off event with one property being sold each month, players at the time could bid an amount to win the property with a finish time of 30 days for the auction, last-minute bids were not possible in this event as any bid below a 12 hour time window reset the bidding time to 12 hours, this was to ensure a true earned winner for the house at the fairest possible price for the time. These properties sold for values between 12 and 23 billion dollars each in the original auctions, the only way to buy one nowadays is to purchase from a player who previously owned it. The most recent purchase was in May 2020 where the St Paul's Abbey was sold for 70 billion dollars, previous notable sales include the Royal Penthouse in 2016 for a 75 billion dollar value.

Information on houses: current happiness at maximum staffing and upgrades.

USS Bloodbath 6325 $250,000 diON [432049]
Silo X17 6025 $250,000 Tezwar [1034523]

All of them have the normal house staff except some don't have airstrips, so not all have pilots. All have medical facilities so all can hire doctors, as well as the normal guards/maids/butlers.

Eagle Island, Iron Fist Hill, Maidengrave, Presidential Bunker and Silo X17 all have airstrips.

Not all have yachts either, only Drakkar Sea Fort and Eagle Island have yachts (although that's only extra happiness)

The USS Bloodbath, however, doesn't have a swimming pool and is the only unique property without one of those, which means it lacks the +2% gym gains gained from a pool.
