This guide will show you how to get a house and upgrade it fully for not cost at all! Interested in getting the Solitude home (25,000 gold) for free? Read on!
You will actually need to possess the amount of gold required to buy the house; you won’t be spending any of it, but you can’t exploit this glitch without it. There are plenty of ways to make money listed on the guides section of our website if you need some more cash.
To buy a house, you need to be a Thane of the city in which it is located or have distinguished yourself within that city to the extent that you will be made a Thane when you buy a house. Once you have reached that status by carrying out quests in the Hold’s quest-line, you should go and visit the Jarl. You will find his/her royal steward somewhere in the vicinity of the Jarl; you must speak to the steward to buy the home.
Before you talk to the steward, however, you must first locate a container that does not say ‘steal’ (when you roll your cursor over it) and that is positioned somewhere where the steward will walk past at some point during their daily routine. When the steward is beside the container you have identified, you can execute this glitch.
First talk to the steward and select the dialogue that asks about the house. When the option comes up to buy the house, select that option and then exit the conversation, turn to the container and open it, empty all of your gold into the container, then continue speaking with the steward. You will now receive the key to your new house and you will still have all of your gold in the chest for you to take back!
Repeat this process again and again to receive free upgrades to the house.
