Welcome to Second Life Answers, redsheila

Yes you can.

That is to say, if you purchase a Linden home, then all is built for you on a designated plot on a moderate sim.

However, there are Adult sims where you can purchase a parcel of land of the same size, without incurring any tier fees on top of your premium membership.

Much more about land ownership can be found on the official Second Life knowledge base. (see tab above, but here is link directly to land)

Linden Homes are all on their separate mainland continents, and all the land is set to a Moderate maturity rating.

You can't "move your home"...that is, you can't take your Linden Home house and put it somewhere else.  But you CAN buy a parcel of land anywhere else on the Mainland, and then build a house on it, or buy a pre-made house and rez it there.  Be sure to abandon your Linden Home before paying for another land parcel, or you will be charged a tier fee.

When you buy a Mainland parcel, you will not be charged monthly tier if the land is 512 square meters or less in size.  This is the same size as the parcel your Linden Home is on.  However, with a Linden Home, the prims of the house don't count against the parcel's ability to support objects, its "capacity".  A 512 square meter parcel can support objects with a total Land Impact value of 117.  That's enough for a small house and some basic furnishings.  You may decide you want a larger parcel of land...if so, you will be charged a monthly fee for land in excess of 512 square meters.

I teach a class on land issues on Fridays, 5 pm SL time, at Caledon Oxbridge University.  It's free to attend.
