Question

  • 0

I suggest starting here >>> https://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Buying-land/ta-p/700043 and then following your nose to related articles that are referenced in that one.  That will give you enough background so that you can ask some careful questions to fill in the rest.  One place to ask is in the free class on land ownership and management taught by Lindal Kidd at Caledon Oxbridge University in world on Friday evenings at 5:00.  If she can't answer questions for you, I'll be very surprised, but she'll point you to others who can.

Thank you, Rolig, for the nice compliment!

Misstazzy,

I hope that you already own a parcel of land, or at least have rented one for a while.  You are a LOT less likely to run into problems if you start small, before tackling the purchase, decorating, and upkeep of an entire region.  If you have never had a home in SL before, I strongly encourage you to do that for at least a few months.

You can learn about buying and managing a private estate region from these Knowledge Base articles:

https://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Private-Regions/ta-p/700133

https://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Managing-Private-Regions/ta-p/700115

I will mention a couple of the finer points:

  • If buying from LL, you can get a plain, flat, square region, or you can pay additional to have it pre-terraformed.  It's usually more cost effective to NOT pay for this, but buy a terrain map from another resident, or terraform the region yourself.
  • Pay attention to where the region is on the grid.  Regions close to, or even adjoining popular areas like the Blake Sea are in much greater demand.  You may be able to move your region to a desirable location, but this may also require the approval of the owner of regions next to where you want your land to be.
  • You can save money in the initial purchase by buying an existing private region from another resident, rather than buying one direct from LL.  There is a forum dedicated to this: https://community.secondlife.com/t5/Regions-for-Sale-Full-Private/bd-p/RegionsforSaleFullRegions  Be sure you follow the procedure described here:  https://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Managing-Private-Regions/ta-p/700115#Section_.3  Use LL as your "escrow agent"...do NOT pay the seller any money directly.
  • You can "buy down" your tier by paying an additional $600 up front.  Instead of $295 per month, this buydown program reduces your monthly fee to $195.  You may be able to get this "grandfathered" rate when purchasing a region from another resident as well.
  • You can, by paying an additional up front fee and an additional monthly fee, increase the prim capacity of your region from 20,000 to 30,000.
