This is a very large topic, so there is a lot to learn. Basically, you need two things: (1) a house and (2) and place to put it. It is wise to get them in reverse order, just as in RL >>> land first. Start reading here to understand some things about buying or renting land >>> http://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowled
Prices vary, depending on the size of the land parcel that you buy or rent. You will want to study the Knowledge Base article that I mentioned earlier to get a feel for the factors that are involved.
Linden Lab has made much of this very easy for beginners in SL. If you have a Premium membership, you are entitled to a Linden Home, which is provided on a 512 sq m parcel. Read about Linden Homes here >>> http://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowled

I want to have my own place but forum or other places information are not so clear.
How can i do that? What steps? How much it cost?
No two-fers here
There are several ways to own your own place. First is to become a premium member; the perks are great and you get a 512sqm parcel with a home and 117 prims allotted. The other benefits are pretty cool too, but outside the scope of what you ask.
If you chose to not be a premium member then you may rent or buy a parcel. You can rent mainland but not purchase. Mainland is LL domain and they sell to premium members which in turn can be rented to non-premium.
The price varies on size and location (and some greed.) Use the in-world search (rental) to get an idea of what is out there.

I'm not sure if you want to rent to own (it may not even make that much sense for you), but this is a good article about deciding what to budget for a place. It talks about a lot of rent to own topics, but really it crosses over to a lot of things you need to think about before getting a place (renting or buying) http://www.homestarsearch.com/rent-to-own-introduc

I teach a class on the basics of buying and renting land on Friday nights, 5 pm SL time, at Caledon Oxbridge University. It's free to attend.
