Well, I have a problem I thought you guys could help me with. I already know how to buy a house (I have the one on Waterfront) but I cannot buy the others. I have the money they ask for, and when I get to the count or whatever I can say just one of two things: -I'm not prepared to buy. -Em... I don't have X gold And this happens to me everywhere. And I want the house in Chorrol at all cost! What should I do?
Make sure the person likes you and its the right time of day (for Countess Chorrol, sometime between 8 and 6 I think).
Use money cheat if problem persists than it's bug.
If you only have those two options, it means you don't have enough money. The house costs 20,000 gold. Get that much then go back.
Like the other guys said that they have to like you, but you really need to do quests for that city for you to be able to buy the house. If there is a big quest going on, you become the hero of that city, your fame goes up and they like you. If not try to bribe them untill you cannot bribe anymore and then try agian.
I now have the house and everything. The thing is (I don't know why) she asks you for 8000 but it's actually 20.000, so you go and say: yes I have 8000, here you have it. And she takes 20.000. :Puzzled: Well, at least the house is mine! :D
