"At realtor.com®, our goal is to help demystify the home-buying journey and Property Tycoon puts a fun spin on helping people understand how factors such as square footage and location impact home values," said Nate Johnson, chief marketing officer for realtor.com®. "Whether you're a real estate veteran or just starting out, Property Tycoon is an enjoyable way to test your real estate knowledge and learn more about different local markets."

All featured properties are real realtor.com® listings sold in the last 60 to 90 days. Players can check their score using the Property Tycoon game results board and earn game badges for things like their placement in the competition.
