When to BuyEdit

If you land on it early in the game, then buy it. If you've landed on it this early, there's a good chance you will get to collect rent off of it. If it's late in the game, forget it. If it's the first time someone has landed on it, then the chances are it's not going to get landed on again. Or, buy it, take the risk, and console yourself with the fact that you can trade with it.
