How do you get all mansions?

How do you guys get tons of mansions in your cities? Is it you have to raise taxes for Residentail$ and $$? If you know any other things, or if what I am saying is incorrect, please tell me!

Thanks alot for your answers!

They also need to be in a generally clean area, away from industial crap that give off air pollution. You also need garbage disposal.

i'd think higher taxes would be bad...

lots of parks and open spaces seem to be good for mansions. and zoning 4x4 dense residential, i've gotten a good deal of 'em (when i really wanted a bigass slum apartment.)

Do not zone dense if you want houses.

More questions.
Do you zone medium, or low wealth? Like Syd-Hk just said that you zone low.
And do you have to get connected with high populated cities?
Last but not least, how do you get high wealth, won't it just like come, or will it have to be made?
Questions, questions, questions! I know I have alot, but I'm really desperate to get a city like this.

Oh yeah, and no garbage? Does that mean I can't use a landfill, or need one? Sorry about all the questions, I'm just not good at this game.

well you can to save money -
1) cut down funding on your schools, hospitals, fire stations.
2) reduce amount of parks in your cities
3) DO NOT UES HIGHWAYS in low density cities [they drain money] use avenues instead.
4) increase taxes
5) no not place an international airport. use smaller ones.
6) no not place certain gifts like mayor house.
7) do not always listen to what your sims say.
8) do not have all ordenences on.
9) do not zone high density until you need to.
10) place neighbour connections to increase workforce in your city (just make sure little people are going out)

OR-
1) use money cheat
2) use money giving lots from ST.

"Do you zone medium, or low wealth?"
The different zones aren't for wealth, they're for density. Houses, apartments, skyscrapers, etc.

"Oh yeah, and no garbage? Does that mean I can't use a landfill, or need one?"
No garbage as in no garbage on the streets. You need adequate landfill space to keep your city clean.

Ack! I really hate landfills, because they just eat up space (I always always always use incinerators at no funding whatsoever), but your garbage disposal should be in a neighboring city or very far from your residential area.

when you zone an area to develop you will have sizes of each "lot"

when we mean 4 x 4 , we mean a zoning of 4 by 4 squares of "zoning".

if you still dont understand ill explain more.

Hold down Ctrl when placing a 4x4 zone so that the game doesn't break up the zone for you.
