Renting a home in SecondLife (Part 7)

Rental 1

I’ve found a fantastic little apartment ! Actually like it SO much that PD paid for a few more weeks rental. This comes from Paedra Estates who have a huge selection of homes to choose from. Something to suit all budgets, this home is 270L per week and comes furnished with an additional 150 prims for your own personal use. Interesting concept is, all the furnishings are left so that group members can move them around in edit mode, or request them to be moved (no additional prims can be gleaned by this but you can buy more if you wish).

Rental 2

Have to say the furnishings are sooper lovely and almost all of them are by Bazar – one of my fav furnishing stores. Menus for colour change, superb poses and such great looking items. The rules are simple really, don’t go over your prim allowance, no temp prim rezzers, and be nice – that’s it really !

At the main office (landmark below) you choose which home you’re interested in, slap the board and it takes you to another office where you need to find a green teleporter. Green means there is a vacancy. A few of the larger homes were fully taken but the apartments seemed to have a few of each available. Once you’ve found an empty home, teleport up and pay the rent box . A group invite then arrives straight away – SL was playing up with mine and I had to relog to get the group to show.

At 270L per week this is a real bargain, so classy with everything you could possibly need – although there are other cheaper homes to see also. The only thing I’ve added is a fireplace. The bed is also by Bazar, wow its amazing, SO amazing I went and bought one ! Actually furnished rental homes are a great way to advertise for furniture makers – people were always asking me where I bought things from when I did rental homes – so they could buy them. Obviously works as I spent a pile of dosh at Bazar this week !

Rental 3

Love the dining area, options for wood and different food items, this landlord has a real eye for design and making a home look special. Must mention that there is a very good security system installed that you can add and people too – so effective I banned Zan *wink* – Ive not had any problems with lag and happily found that the television worked for me here despite not working for me in my own home for the last year ! Landmark below to the main Paedra Estates office – have fun !

Renting a Home in Second Life (Part 4)

Fairy Unique Rental -House by Culrpit

I love doing these rental posts – it’s a real treat to scoot about looking at homes & spaces. My fourth port of call was Fairy Unique Rentals, only a couple of vacancies when I arrived so I used the rental board to teleport up to them. After uhmming & ahhing, because they were all SO pretty, I chose this one above. It’s really roomy and spacious, with a wrap around balcony downstairs, a conservatory and a brilliantly enormous bedroom area. (This home is made by Culprit btw , link below if you wanna buy one – its called Dragonfly cottage) I stumped up the rent for a week, read the notecard that I was given and waited for a group invite. The group joiner bot thinger was on strike I think, so I dropped the landlady a note – next day I got the invite AND she added my lost day back onto my remaining time – sweet ! The rental layout is unusual and I liked it. Each home is on its own grassy platform thats suspended in the sky, abundantly decorated with gorgeous flowers and plants. You also get 150 prims for your own gear. When you pay the rental board down at the store level , it’s automatically covered up , so no one should really bother you. I didn’t notice a way to lock the doors and to be honest I would’ve preferred that option , as the rental agreement says “no security orbs”. I know I know privacy isn’t really applicable in Second Life, unless you own your own Sim etc…but I do like to lock my doors, it just makes me feel better?! Cant say I’ve been bothered at all, and I’ve hung out decorating for the last three days.

I popped over to Cleo Design and nabbed a few treats for my new space , the couch I’m sat on is sooper cozy (and has pattern change options) I seem to recall it was just 55L ! As you can see above the house also has a large conservatory space, it’s just begging for some benches and plants. The rent per week for this home is a very low 250L, I think, but I’m not sure that all the homes are around this price point. Big thank you to Happyholly Grigges who is the land owner and landlady , such a lovely welcome ❤
