I agree with Pumpkin on changing the railway stations to Wizarding schools: Hogwarts, Beauxbatons, Durmstrang, and Salem Witches' Institute (a probable Wizarding school in America) or you could pick another forth school from the few other possible Wizarding schools out there. (Like, Brazilian wizarding school, Koldovstoretz School, etc.) But, if you would like to keep these as stations then may I suggest using; King’s Cross, Hogsmeade, Surbiton, and Paddington for the four stations.
Now I have a question. Do wizards have need of utilities? Since they use other sources for lighting and water. If so, would you like to use Ministry of Magic offices or departments to stand in for power and water? If so they’re quite a few to choose from.
However, one might transform the utilities into train stations, if you are going with the concept of transforming the four railway stations to four Wizarding schools that is. Then you would have Hogsmeade Station and Platform 9 ¾ at Kings Cross Station. Since these two are the main Wizarding railway stations we know by heart.
I somewhat agree with Pumpkin that Malfoy Manor should be one of the two blue property squares, but I don’t know about Hogwarts being the second one. How about the Riddle Manor House, instead? Tom Riddle Sr. did come from a wealthy family, albeit a Muggle one. (Just an idea.)

Thank you Sunset for scouting out all those possible properties you listed here. I hope you don’t mind that I borrowed from your post and switched Hogwarts with Cokeworth and Ollivander's Wand Shop with Hagrid's Hut.
I like your ideas of the different possible cards Poppy. (And, also about the fourth school.) Maybe there could be a card about being picked for the Triwizard Tournament or winning the Triwizard Tournament with a bonus of 1,000 Galleons (probably one or two card in a deck special award card). Or, maybe a “You don't pay here” card that whenever one lands on the Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes square they do not have to pay rent… or not.
Quick question: Are you planning on changing over the regular Monopoly currency to Wizarding Monopoly currency? Like, Knuts, Sickles, and Galleons?
Edit: I forgot to mention that I would love to play this on here when it's complete and ready for playing.
