# What are grandfathered homesteads worth (sales, not rentals)?

Please take a moment to consider if this thread is worth bumping.

If it helps, here's the official word on pricing from Linden Lab:

Grandfathered Homestead Private Island regions (\$95/month) may be transferred to new owners without losing the discounted pricing. However, the one-time fee for transferring grandfathered regions will be higher than the usual transfer fee, as follows:

• Transfer of a Full Island, maintaining grandfathered pricing: \$600/each
• Transfer of a Homestead Island, maintaining grandfathered pricing: \$300/each

So, take whatever one-time sales price that a seller is asking, add \$300 for the one-time transfer fee, and then figure on paying \$95/month for continuing fees.  If you're asking what the current average asking price is, however, I do not know. As a rough guide, Mainland prices are about L\$1/ sq m.

Since they are grandfathered and the demand for them is probably higher than for a homestead that isn't grandfathered, I am sure they will be more expensive than a regular homestead.

If you are looking to buy one, remember you have to own a full prim sim to own a homestead.  Also always ask if the asking price includes the \$300 transfer fee if it doesn't specifically say. That fee is charged to the seller so many sellers will include the fee in the asking price.
