Q: Will I need to purchase my property?
A: Yes. The purchase price on all of our available properties is equal to one weeks tier. With your purchase you receive ownership of the land and a week of tier to be added within 24 hours.
Q: Will I still need to pay rent after purchasing my new property?
A: Yes. Anywhere you live in Second Life will have a weekly or monthly rent or “tier” due on the property. These tiers are what keep Second Life running and are similar to an HOA fees and taxes. The Real Estate company collects the fees then pays the majority in “taxes” to Linden Labs. The remainder is used to maintain the community, take care of the staff and the expanding of new amenities and features.
