Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is still one of the most popular games today. When Bethesda released this game in 2011, Skyrim appeared and was quoted in every part of the media – from internet memes to discussing the game’s plot, and its mechanics. Fans are still looking into game secrets, mechanics, and the best way to play the game, and that, of course, includes buying items and customizing accommodations for players’ characters. This article will look into one of them and try to answer, which Skyrim house is easiest to get?
The easiest house to get is definitely Breezhome, located in Whiterun. It is acquirable at the beginning of the game, and one of the first houses you can get for little money. However, the house is quite scarce, but what you need at that point in the game is enough.
Of course, this is not the only house you can get in Skyrim. There are multiple ones that you can buy regardless of your needs and the situation your character is in. We will also explain how you can buy this house, for what cost and maybe throw in an honorable mention. So, if we caught your attention, please stick with us for a more detailed process of acquiring houses in Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
How To Get Breezhome in Whiterun?
As mentioned before, Breezhome is located in Whiterun. You can obtain this house by following the main quest – after completing the “Bleak Falls Barrow” Quest and then purchasing it from Proventus Avenicci, who is a Jarl Balgruuf the Greater’s Steward in Whiterun. He is the main man for purchasing the home in Whiterun. On the other hand, if you complete the quest presented by Stormcloaks, there is another outcome for who is going to be a Steward.
If your Dragonborn sides with Stormcloacks, your character automatically gives you another Steward named Brill. Regardless of the options available for the player, you still can buy a house and other items and customizable objects from the Stewards, and prices are still the same.
Most of these properties are purchasable from people after doing similar quests and some you get after acquiring DLC for the Skyrim game. All in all, just buy the house from Proventus Avenicci or Brill after finishing one of your main quests.
Value of Breezhome in Whiterun?
Since the house is obtainable so early in the game, your Dragonborn won’t need that much money for it. Because of that fact, it is obvious that the Breezhome house is quite cheap. When you finish your quests and everything else, your Steward will want 5,000 gold for the house, which is very cheap for Skyrim standards. Even though most of the players quickly move on from the house the farther they go through the game, the value of the house increases because of its location.
Specifically, the Breezhome house is located next to the shopping market in Whiterun. The downside of the home is its size. The house is the smallest in the game with the absence of some key elements like an enchanting table and mannequin. Despite all of these cons, Breezhome is quite good for blacksmiths because of the already mentioned close proximity to the shopping market that includes Warmaiden’s, the Skyforge, and wood chopping blocks.
The house can be customized and those upgrades cost up to 1,800 gold. Upgrades include Alchemy Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, Loft Bedroom, Living Room, and Children’s Room. For a total of 6,800 gold, this house is really good.
Breezhome Features and an Honorable Mention
We already listed all Rooms you can acquire in Breezhome Upgrade. There is a scenario and bonus bedroom your Dragonborn can receive if they become a Thane of Whiterun and Lydia becomes the Thane’s housecarl. If Dragonborn gets the title of the Thane before purchasing the Breezhome, the bedroom is already furnished and you won’t have to pay for the items.
In Skyrim, a lot of things are possible, and of course, there is a feature where your Dragonborn can marry and have children with their spouse. That’s why there is a Children’s Room. However, buying both is impossible. You need to choose between an Alchemy Lab or Children’s Room. Of course, in the early game, most players would prioritize their solo journey through Skyrim, and later when they decide on their life partner, they already get to the new houses. Items in Breezhome display 2 Weapon Racks, 2 Weapon Plaque, 1 Shield Plaque, and 4 Bookshelves containing 58 books.
As we mentioned before, we will provide you with our honorable mention – the house called Honeyside. This moderate-sized house is located in the city of Riften and if Dragonborn desires to become a Thane of Riften definitely consider this house, which coincidentally, is the only house in the city of Riften available for buying. Has a great exterior and is a great house for hunters and Dragonborn who are interested in alchemy or enhancing.
