Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim How To Get A House
It doesn’t take long before you have to much loot to carry and nowhere to sell, use this Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim How To Get A House guide to get your own place up and running within hours of starting the game. If you used our beginners guide you should already know the methods of earning easy money at the start of the game. Simply gather as many herbs as possible, craft into potions, sell and repeat. Do this while your questing in Whiterun and it doesn’t take long to earn the money.

Once you’ve collected 5,000 gold, head to Dragons Reach and speak with the assistant, he’s usually sitting down eating so check there and next to the throne. You must have been granted Thane status before you’re able to purchase property so you’ll have to go that far into the story at least.

You can purchase extra furniture and fittings for your house from the same person, use the book guide in your inventory to see what packages unlock what items in your house. You can also use the Companion Lydia to guard your house, just to be safe.
