We all want to belong in some way in SL, and in RL for that matter. In SL part of it is finding a home and feeling like we have a place. People think it costs more than it really does though. Many sims have pockets of land to rent. This house I have used is small, one of the smaller houses I own but it has everything I need. At the end of the day if we have a place to sort inventory and to change it is perfect. Also a few nice touches to we can hang with friends and be part of a gang. By playing a few gachas and keeping watch on Fifty Linden Friday(how I got this house) it can cost very little to have a relaxing place to belong. Even when RL can get nutty, all you need to do is sign into SL and chill.
