Don't you *want* to keep your current renters? And what is this "normal" that you speak of?
Sorry Zeebster, I can't wrap my brain around the business model you propose. Unless you are making a bald-faced attempt at cornering the market until you have driven everyone else out of business. At which point in time you could charge whatever you want for your sims because you would be one of the only Estates remaining.
I think a more reasonable business model is the following:
- Keep enough sims on the map to obtain discounted tier from LL.
- Maintain the cover story that your sims are "Grandfathered" sims that have been on the grid since before June 2009.
- Earn a profit of $73 - $95 USD per month per sim while giving the appearance of losing money.
But hey, if you want to lose money every month keeping sims on the grid, have at it!

DreamSeeker brought a whole bunch of full prim estate sims online on June 6th - all new, and leased them out below cost. They did not have much success even at these suicidal rates well below cost, btw. Now they are putting them all offline, presumedly because they are now all cancelled. It really makes one wonder, it does, as to WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?
