- Read House, Garden & Llamas Magazine (1 hr)
  (A new housing development with ocean views is opening in Sim Town? With extra large property sizes?! Great! Imagine all the things you could do with all that extra room! Look for some big-house ideas in the 'House, Garden & Llamas' magazine.
Note: You can find the stack of magazines in the Living Room section of the Home Store.)


- Play 'The Sims' on a Computer (48 mins) Cancelled
  (If you're going to be building a house on one of those huge housing lots, you'd better plan it first! Why not test out some designs in the virtual world? Have one of your Sims play 'The Sims' on a computer.)

- Call Real Estate Agent on Phone (4 mins 30 secs)
  (Those designs are looking GREAT! Time to get building! Use a phone to call up the Real Estate Agent and find out how to get in to the big housing lots!)

- Watch 'Simhouse Blitz' on TV (13 hrs)
  (Uhh, apparently the Real Estate Agency's number is not connected? Hang on... Sim Town doesn't even HAVE a real estate agency! You're going to have to start one up! Start by doing some research: Watch 'Simhouse Blitz' on a TV.)

- Have a Double Shot of Coffee (1 min)
  (Have you ever noticed how quickly some of those real estate auctioneers speak? Wow! You're Sim is going to need a bit of an energy kick if they're going to learn how to do that.
Start powering up with a Double Shot of Coffee)


- Call a Sim to the Park
  (Okay... your Sim is seriously buzzing after that coffee. They look ready to practice some auctioneering but they'll need to find someone to practice on first. Maybe at the Park? Head over there now.)

- Perform Fake Auction with Ducks in Park (2 mins)
  (Hmm... There aren't any other Sims here to practice on! Well, maybe the ducks would be a good audience? After all, they've been helpful before. Perform a Fake Auction for the Ducks in the Park. You'll find them in the Lake.)

- Feed the Ducks in the Park (15 mins) Cancelled
  (Wow! What a great audience! The ducks said you did well but just need to work on steady pacing and speaking clearly. You should thank the ducks by giving them a feed.)

- Bake Pumpkin Pie (10 hrs) (was Banana Bread) Cancelled
  (All that duck feeding (and auctioneering) has made your Sim hungry! Is that a craving for Pumpkin Pie they feel coming on? Why yes, yes it is! Bake some Pumpkin Pie.
Note: You can bake banana bread using a stove that can be purchased in the kitchen section of the Home Store.)


- Wash Hands in a Sink (7 secs)
  (That was delicious! Now get back to work! You need to start building the Real Estate Agency. Actually, first you should wash all of that banana-bread mess off of your Sim's hands!
Have a Sim wash their hands in a Sink.)


- Build the Real Estate Agency (time depends on the amount of buildings already built)
  (Okay, your Sim is all cleaned up, so NOW you can start building the Real Estate Agency! Build it on the Town Map!
Note: You can find the lot for the Real Estate Agency on the right side of the map near the Sim Town Sign.)


- Get a Job as a Real Estate Agent
  (The Real Estate Agency is up, but not yet running. It needs a Sim to run the show! Have a Sim get a job as a Real Estate Agent.)

- Have a Sim Dance to a Stereo (3 mins)
  (Great! Only one thing left to do. Celebrate! The gateway to the OCEAN VIEW ESTATE is almost open! Have one of your Sims dance to a Stereo!)



You've unlocked OCEAN VIEW ESTATE! You can find the new properties near the coast of Sim Town. These housing lots have even more space for your Sims to build their dream homes in!

For finishing the quest within the time limit, you've unlocked the BEACHSIDE ESCAPE! You can build it on any of the new Ocean View Estate Lots on the coast of Sim Town.


Happy Simming!
