Gaming property rich list: Here’s how much in-game properties would set you back in real life

  • A new study by Ebuyer reveals how much gaming properties would cost if you were to purchase them in real life
  • Maze Bank Tower in GTA V would be the most expensive to buy at £2,880,000.00
  • One of the most affordable properties to purchase is Raffia Quinta from Oasis Springs at £28,152.19

Whether you’re using your Simoleons to buy your Sims a new villa, or you’re forking out your bells to Tom Nook in Animal Crossing to upgrade your pad, in-game property prices can be costly. But, have you ever wondered how much they would set you back if you were able to purchase them in real life?

It’s no secret that gaming has become more popular than ever, especially over the last year during the lockdowns. In fact, in 2020 UK consumers spent nearly £2.4 billion on digital consoles and games, up from £1.98 billion the previous year1.

If you’ve got your eye on a fantasy property, Ebuyer has analysed* the gaming property market to determine how much certain properties would cost if you were to buy them here and now (technically speaking). To convert the fictional property prices into GBP, food prices were analysed to estimate the exchange rate due to food being prevalent in all games.

According to the findings, the ten most expensive gaming properties are as follows:



In-game property

In-game currency

In-game purchase price

Real life cost in GBP



Maze Bank Tower






Large plot, with the large mansion






Eclipse Towers, Apartment 3





Sims 4, Willow Creek world

Ophelia Villa






Medium plot, with the medium house





Sims 4, Willow Creek world

Pique Hearth





Animal Crossing: New Horizons

House, with all expansions and extra storage





Sims 4, Oasis Springs

Vista Quarry






Small plot, with the small cottage





Sims 4, Oasis Springs

Raffia Quinta




Topping the property rich list is Maze Bank Tower in GTA V. The property in the game is located in Pillbox Hill, Downtown Los Santos, and gamers can purchase the tower from San Andreas’ favourite real estate company, Dynasty 8. And whilst it’ll set you back $4,000,000 in-game, if you could purchase it today in real life, it would cost £2,880,000.00… if only!

Taking the second spot is FFXIV. There are five different houses to purchase in the game, and they vary in price. The most expensive is the large plot, with the large mansion equipped with three floors, and a much bigger garden than the other plots. Costing 37,920,000 Gils in-game, it would set you back £407,640.00 in real life.

But if you’re on a strict budget, the most affordable property of them all is Raffia Quinta. Whilst Sims 4 may have first dropped back in 2014, if you’re an avid simmer, the pad from Oasis Springs would cost you only £28,152.19 to buy today… and if that was the case, we’d all own one! Another cheaper option is the small plot with the small cottage in FFXIV, costing £32,991.75.

Commenting on the research, Andy Roberts, E-Commerce Director of Ebuyer, says: “Often we spend so much time immersed in our gaming universes, there is a suspension of disbelief on the real-life costs of factors such as property and bills!

Our research gives food for thought on how much it would cost to live like our favourite characters in real-life. The results really are shocking!”


Best Games to Come In 2022



Reading Time: 2 minutes


There is a common quip in the gaming and game development world that new games’ release dates are more of suggestions than a sure thing. This is because no game ever makes its initial release date. But gamers have come to terms with delays and understand that it’s part of the game development process. However, this does not keep us from getting excited about the new titles slated to be released later this year.

This piece will look at the best games you should expect before the year ends. So if you’re ready to possibly get your hopes up for no reason, keep reading to learn more.

1. God of War

God of war is a quirky game set in a world inspired by the Norse mythology and was initially released in 2005. The game has gone through a few iterations over the years, which has only improved its gameplay. The current title does an excellent job at developing its characters and establishing their backstories, pulling you into the game and engaging you even more.

In addition, the musical score does an even better job at accentuating important moments in the game. That’s why we are so excited about the new revamp slated for later on this year. We are sure the stories and music will only get better, and we don’t even need to mention the gameplay. Sony always kills it.

2. Call of Duty

When duty calls, you have to answer. This is one that never disappoints. Its action sequences are as engaging as ever, and the graphics are every graphics designer’s envy. Betway also found that playing COD helps you burn as much calories as a long walk, with a 90 minute gaming session elevating your heart rate to 90+ beats per minute and helping you burn up to 180 calories.

So you can now enjoy your gaming sessions and don’t have to worry about missing the gym. And with a new release this year, we have more than one thing to be excited about.

3. Last of Us

Another title that is excellent to play is Last of Us. It’s set in a decaying post-apocalyptic world and stars two characters—a child accompanied by an adult. However, the story is not about the dilapidated world but about these two characters and their struggle to survive this world.

This is one we hope the development gods here us and release as expected. We cross our fingers and hope it makes its release date this year.

4. A Plague’s Tale

Set in a corps-ridden world, plague-infested rats and inquisition soldiers who have it out for the two orphaned sibling protagonists. The game’s setting does an excellent job of making the main characters empathetic as you witness their struggle from a third-person perspective.

However, the gameplay is not that engaging, and the obstacles are neither challenging nor compelling. We are glad the makers are revamping this one and getting a second chance at taking another crack later this year.

5. FIFA 23

FIFA is a classic game that never disappoints. It has been a favorite for many, and FIFA 23 is expected to be the most popular iteration of the francise yet.
