MyTown Tips & Tricks Explained

MyTown might seem like a simple game but it really is a lot more complex than it appears. The basic principle of MyTown is to check-in

to different businesses which you visit and gain rewards for doing so. As you gain rewards you can spend them to purchase locations and then earn rent from the locations based on their popularity.

Obviously the more spread-out your properties are the higher chance you have of earning. Purchasing properties in cities with huge populations, such as New York and Miami, will yield much higher rent. Using the money earned you can upgrade properties and they will earn rent even faster. The basis of everything in MyTown is having a high level of income to continue advancing.

Many of the MyTown Tips & Tricks are essentially tips on how to increase your income. There are also some MyTown Cheats and one in particular which provides outstanding results. Read on to learn about these MyTown Tips & Tricks and MyTown Cheats.

Tips & Tricks

Here are a few MyTown Tips & Tricks that will set you on the right path in MyTown. Following these Tips & Tricks will help you increase your income in MyTown and teach you what to do with that income to ensure long-term success.


  • Location, Location, Location. Examine the popularity of a location before purchasing it. Only purchase locations that are high in


    popularity. The higher the better.

  • Spread yourself out. Don’t purchase all the properties in just your home town. Take your iPhone with you when you get in the car, record locations in other towns! Vacations are great opportunities.

  • Upgrade. Upgrade your properties as you have funds available. Always upgrade the popular locations first. Max out your properties before purchasing new ones. Higher levels result in more funds, quicker.

  • Find hot properties. Pick locations that are always up in popularity. These include amusement parks, fast food restaurants and hotels.

  • Avoid slow properties. Things like beauty shops, small stores and supermarkets are usually not good choices as they are down in popularity or do not gain popularity.


  • Rapid check-ins. Don’t really wait until you’re at the location to check-in. Pretend like you’re there and tap check-in. Repeat this for all the properties close to your house once a day to accumulate rewards.
  • Use rewards. Use the rewards you obtain such as multipliers to check into high popularity locations. This will earn much more than a regular check-in.
