Four Green Houses, One Red Hotel

Written by Marc on June 3rd, 2007

If any of you have played the board game Monopoly from Milton Bradley, you will understand the title of this post.  To give a simple explanation of this strategy, look at this list:


  1. Buy some properties
  2. Collect rent
  3. Build houses
  4. Collect more rent
  5. Trade four houses for one red hotel
  6. Repeat

This is a great analogy for life in business.  Start small, reinvest, and grow.  If you follow this simple strategy, you can and should excel in business and investing.  This can apply for online and offline businesses, and real estate investing.

This is also good motivation for those of you just starting out:  even if you are starting small, you can become a large organization.

Just remember:

Four Green Houses -> One Red Hotel
