The Elder Scrolls 5 – Skyrim: The Ultimate House buying Guide
Even in Skyrim, you need to have knowledge of real estate. After all, you need somewhere to go home to in the game’s vast world. You also cannot keep on bringing stuff everywhere. If you don’t want to sell all those things then you need somewhere to store them. You also need a place for you to sleep soundly. You may also want to experience everything that is typical of a family hope: interacting with a spouse, buying furnishings and so on. You might even buy several properties at a time as a means of investment or just a show of power. Real estate and home living in Skyrim are just like in real life.
So you need to know where you can find available houses to buy and just how much each costs and what requirements you may need to buy one. Again, it is just like in real life. In Skyrim, you also need to be approved. You need the approval of the major city’s local Jarl. The home can be bought and then furnished by the Steward.
