So whats really better, buying or renting? in General Discussion Posted November 22, 2011 When I sold my private region in 2009 I was prepared to negotiate on things like transfer fees etc etc. I sold mine in this group, I believe https://my.secondlife.com/groups/4b169c85-4c84-957e-6834-58216d9a5390 but I don't know if it is still active. Worth noting that making a sim pay is extremely hard, and that is an understatement, be certain you can cover 295USD pm without it paying for itself before you buy. But I am sure you do not need me to tell you that. If you are outside of the US, VAT will usually be applicable too.
