Skyrim Houses / Properties Locations

Skyrim Houses Locations

Here is a list of the houses / properties you can buy in Skyrim.

How to buy a house: To buy a house you must first win the trust of the Jarl in the town of your choice.

Complete any quests or favors they asign you until you earn their friendship and then you will be able to buy a house in that town.

Benefits of owning a house:
  • Storage for any weapons, armor, items, materials or anything else you don't have room for in your inventory.
  • The ability to meet your housecarl or spouse in your house at any time.
  • A bed to sleep in so you can get "Well Rested".
  • The ability to decorate the house as well as display any weapons, armor or items you find.
