A Quick Tip about Linden Homes and Premium Membership

Quite a few people want one of the new Linden Homes...and who can blame them?  They're on 1024 square meter parcels, so they have a land impact allowance twice as large as the old Linden Homes (351 vs. 175).

The last batch of them that Linden Lab released were all snatched up in less than 30 minutes!

So, what's a poor homeless avatar to do?

First, if you haven't done so already, sign up for a Premium membership.  In fact, if you have been toying with the idea of going Premium, do it now!  Choose the annual plan, at $72 USD.  This is going up to $99 as of June 24. If you are already a Premium member, and your renewal doesn't come up for a while, you can pre-pay for up to a year of membership at the old, $72 rate until June 24.

Now you have three choices.
  1. Wait to get land or a home until LL releases a new batch of Linden Homes.  You can follow this forum thread to get news about that: The New Linden Homes Update Post  While you wait, you can also check the Linden Home signup page often.  If someone abandons their home, that style of Linden Home will show in the list of available home styles.
  2. Get one of the old style Linden Homes.  You can always abandon it when more of the new homes are released.  
  3. Buy a vacant 1024 square meter Mainland parcel from another resident, or via the Land Auctions.  Again, you can sell or abandon this land when more of the Linden Homes are released.
One caution:  The new homes have been going so quickly that getting rid of an existing Linden Home or an existing Mainland parcel might slow you down enough so that you'd miss out on getting one.  You'll have to weigh this risk when choosing your options.  You might prefer to be homeless, but fast on your feet.
