A Guide to Buy virtual Land in Upland
Upland is a property trading game that allows users to buy, sell and trade virtual properties mapped to real-world addresses. It allows you to buy plots of land, and you can also make a return on the same plots, similar to the real-life rental property. Every land in Upland gets a 17% commission on the prices set. You can profit by selling off your property as long as you have the land ownership. Upland has some homes for sale in various cities around the US.
Properties in Upland are categorically placed in minted and unminted properties. Minted properties are owned by other players, while unminted are those that have never had an owner. So, how do you go about buying land in Upland?
The parcels of property in Upland are color-coded to differentiate them among all the parcels present.
- Bright Green: These include parcels that have not been minted and can be minted or purchased by any person, thus are available for sale.
- Dark Green: They stand for minted properties that UPX or USD can purchase. Their owners define the prices.
- Blue: The blue parcels stand for the land minted by other players and not listed on secondary markets. However, bids can be made on the lands, and owners are responsible for accepting or rejecting the various offers.
- Dark Blue: These are parcels that you own.
- Gray: These are lands that are not minted and locked, meaning no one owns them.
The General process of Buying land
Click on UPX World and choose Big Data properties. It includes a database with all property prices.
You then filter your search with the city you belong to. This is because one can only be able to mint property in the city they belong to. You can then choose Only FSA and change Property Status to Unlocked.
Select the Mint Price option, which allows you to filter properties based on their prices, primarily from low to high.
Search for the property within the game.

So how do you decide on the property?
Making a Choice on Upland Marketplace
With the knowledge of the various colors of the different parcels, you can now buy the land you wish. Your starting point should be to search for cheaper properties and FSA properties. FSA properties are for new players, and they are not much expensive. There are less players on these properties which lowers the price.
For you to buy land in Upland, you must have UPX, which is the official currency of Upland.
Property trading is the backbone of Upland, and all properties in the game resemble those in the real world that appear when viewed through Google Street View. As a starter, starting with the less-expensive areas like Brooklyn and Fresno is recommended before going to the expensive areas.
To trade property in Upland, one must be conversant with the basics of buying and selling property. For example, you can buy cheap properties and sell them off at higher prices. Once you master it, you will find it easy to trade property on Upland.
Land Price in Upland
When you sign up as a member of Upland, you become a visitor with money. One starts with 4,500 UPX. 1000 UPX is equivalent to $1 in the Upland metaverse. Most of the properties in Upland are as low as $6,000 to $10,000 but can go up much higher in most cases.
Prices can vary according to the area and the size of the land. The price of digital land is on the rise, with prices sky-rocketing every year, which means that this may go on changing.
UPX is not yet real money but probably will someday. A way to increase your UPX amount is simply buying with your own money.
Digital land trading is still in its early stages, and we expect to see more developments in the coming days. We expect the additional advancements to make buying land in the metaverse easier as days go by.
The prices now may be high as many of the options offered are on trial bases. In Upland, you can buy land using the steps indicated. However, buying land is ultimately your decision. If you are trying to do it, find all the facts and make a wise choice for yourself.
