The weekends discounted region offer finished at Midnight SLT yesterday.
Overall 322 new private regions were added to the grid between Friday and this morning, along with another 50 which returned to the grid, the net effect was to increase the grid to 31248 regions from 30924 with private estates gaining 311 to 24262 . This is about 300 private regions more than would have been expected over the same period if no offer had been active.
Of the 322 new regions, 152 were Full Regions and 43 were Homesteads, the remaining 127 were still closed to public access. The 195 open to public access were owned by 177 different owners, with no single person purchasing more than 3 regions. On investigation some purchases were by the larger estates ,again no more than 3 regions, but 111 of the new owners have no other active holdings.
I'm not too surprised to see that the bigger estates didn't really run with this offer, aside from having a good feel for demand, members of the
AjaxAtlas scheme already have a limited means to bring on line regions with no purchase price.
