Monopoly debuted on November 4, 1953. Gary Peters, two-time U.S. Monopoly Champion, shared his advice on how to win this game in a recent Woman's World magazine. "Build three houses immediately," Peters said, and 'buy orange.' 
Perhaps there is some hidden wisdom here for the budding house developer. Once you have three houses, there's a good chance of having a fairly steady income. Buying orange properties, which are a common stop by players, is also good because houses are so cheap ($100 in the game at least). Now translate that to real life...
Monopoly could be thought of as an economic training ground for home developers, investors, and builders. There are several companies who are now working on ways to quickly build new homes (see 18 Real-Life Monopoly Houses That Are Winning the Game at https://www.dwell.com/article/modern-monopoly-gable-roof-houses-03fd34d9). These modest, but handsome, homes are popping up all around the world, or the game board, and often provide a very cost efficient alternative to traditional housing.
Check out the Dwell article above for modern Monopoly houses and be sure to avoid the GO TO JAIL card and pass GO and collect $200 on November 4th.
