how to buy a house in windhelm

You need to finish the Blood on the Ice quest first before the steward will give you the conversation option to buy the Windhelm house (Hjerim).
If Tova and Arivanya are alive, the quest has not yet initiated because the counter is less than four, and you obtain a key to Hjerim, then you can trigger this quest by entering Hjerim with that key and picking up one of the Beware the Butcher! pamphlets.
You must tell the guard you are willing to help to get the murderer, then you will start a quest that involves research in the house.

In the middle of the room is a very long wooden table laid with fancy crockery and a bottle of alto wine, a bottle of wine, two bottles of Nord mead, a raw venison haunch, two carrots, a portion of scaly pholiota fungus, a salt pile, a baked potato, a portion of grilled leeks, a salmon steak, a cabbage, a goat cheese wedge, a loaf of bread, a honey nut treat and a charred skeever hide.
Further to the right of the table set back in an alcove are two sets of shelves, they hold three bottle of alto wine, a bottle of wine, four bottles of Nord mead, two goblets, a gourd, a honey nut treat, two potions of regeneration, five random potions of lasting potency, and two random potions of extra magicka.
In the southeastern corner of the room is a large round wooden table and a chair, holding a bottle of alto wine, two bottles of Nord mead and a goblet.
The arcane enchanter is in the northeast corner of the room, three weapon plaques are to the left, on the north wall and two tall sets of shelves are to the right, against the east wall.
To the left of the doorway into the kitchen is a long wooden table that holds a solution and a philter of strength, a bottle of alto wine, two bottles of wine, a jug and a pile of food sacks, with more sacks under and in front of the table.
Further to the right of this wall is a small unit holding a bottle of wine, with a large fancy vase and empty open crate beside it.
In the master bedroom, the small wardrobe may get left behind causing it and the set of shelves to occupy part of the same space against the east wall.
In a small alcove on the east wall is a corner shelving unit holding an iron war axe, with a pile of food sacks underneath.
On the left as you enter is a matching small wardrobe, both of which hold fine clothes, this second wardrobe has a bottle of wine on top and a pile of food sacks beside it.
Once you become Thane of Eastmarch, entering the second bedroom upstairs, there is a square wooden table and chair in an alcove on the east wall laid for one with fancy crockery.
 360   PS3   In Hjerim, Vlindrel Hall and Honeyside the mannequins can glitch so if the armor is taken off the mannequin, if the player re-enters the house, the armor has been duplicated and will be on the mannequin.
 PS3   Many pointed out bugs, like mannequins, weapon racks and dagger displays not working properly, can be avoided by buying the house and all upgrades at once and then entering the purchased and upgraded house.

Welcome to the fourth and FINAL episode of SKYRIM GUIDES: Houses – a quick guide on how to purchase a new home in Windhelm.
If you like what you see, tell me about it! I will continue making more Skyrim Guides if people want more.
You must complete the Blood on the Ice quest which is started in the Windhelm graveyard.
Complete the Blood Ice Quest and complete the whole of StormCloak & Imperial war Questlines.
The Blood on thin ice quest can only be started by entering and exiting windhelm fast traveling to a randon location then fast traveling back to the windhelm stables.
The Blood on the Ice quest involves that house, so if you complete it, the house becomes available to buy.
You can start that quest by spending a day or two in windhelm, and going over to the graveyard part of it to find a dead body and some people standing around it.
Also this quest is bugged in a number of ways only one i know of is a dark brotherhood quest where you have to kill a girl in windhelm who is part of the quest which if you do wont allow you to start the quest.
The guy I’m supposed to buy it from says something like "there was an accident….it’s not quite ready.." Do I need to do a quest or something? I’ve joined the Stormcloak army and I’ve already completed the questline.
Return to the world of Tamriel to battle the resurgence of dragons, in the highly anticipated sequel to Morrowind and Oblivion.
“ So I've completed the blood in the ice quest, as well as 3-4 quests given to me by the steward but have yet to be given the option to buy a home in Windhelm.
1,500 Bedroom The master bedroom has a large bed, two end tables, a wardrobe, a shield plaque, two dagger display cases, four bookshelves, two small dining tables and multiple shelves, three small sacks, a chest, and various food and other items.
1,500 Living room Hjerim’s living room is a very large open room with a long central dining table, small table, and chair, multiple small and large sacks, two bookshelves, a barrel, two wardrobes and a variety of food, ingredients, and miscellaneous items.
Hjerim Map Location North west portion of Windhelm Initial Cost 8,000 – 12,000 Upgrade Cost 9,000 Total Cost 21,000 Calder Acquisition Complete Blood on the Ice and Rescue from Fort Neugrad or capture Windhelm for the Empire Hjerim is a purchasable home in V: Skyrim.
”blood on ice” but i cant seem to be able to trigger the quest, and i even stole the key from the schatter schield lady to enter the house, not being able to do anything inside besides looting the place.
Perhaps the Blood on Ice quest is required to decorate the house if you purchased it…but it surely isn’t the only thing that makes the home available for purchase.
*The quest may not trigger and be unable be enabled with console commands for unknown reasons.
And then, after getting house You must speak with Jarl, decration commands should work after these two.
Then, after the console codes didn’t work, I gave up and took matters into my own hands.
Also gave myself the "Beware of the Butcher!" note and the "Butcher journal" book.
Console commands don’t work on this quest.
There’s also "Cleaning after killing" option, at 000f726a, but it needs 2 quests to be done, and I don’t have time to find their ID’s.
Also scoured Windhelm talking about ANYTHING relevant about a butcher (which is from the quest).
Asker’s rating & comment I think my game's just glitched from doing the Oghma Infium glitch Cuz i'm having other problems too (dragons not dying when they have zero health, not absorbing souls, etc.) thanks though.
i think what i did was get a mission from the inn or some other random NPC in windhelm— to either kill a dragon or a giant then when u turn the mission in to the steward you can buy a house.
The way I bought a house in windhelm was that I went up to Jorleif (who you can find in the Palace of kings next to Ulfric) talk to him and tell him you want to buy a house in Windhelm.
I am thinking I cant start this quest now, even though Viola keeps warning me that the Butcher could be lrking somewhere.
Does that mean the crowd are permanently there in the graveyard until you start the quest, because I’ve been loitering and theres no-one in the graveyard.
You talk to the guard, then talk to some of the people ("witnesses") before talking to the steward to start the quest.
Ibelieve there is a quest somewhere about a seriel killer, but I cant find it- orI might have got to a point that I cant ppick it up.
It cost 21k (with all the decoration upgrades) but, if you have done the "blood on the ice" quest and are going to buy the house, be sure to purchase the "clean up house" or what its called.
I missed that and now the house is all glitchy (I dont wanna spoil too much in case you/others havent done the quest yet).
If there’s one thing I learned about from Bethesda is that: Checking is a wise choice since they tell you all about the glitches and bugs that might affect the gameplay to the degree that its unfinishable.
It costs 12000 gold to purchase the house, and almost as much again to furnish it.
I still haven’t gotten it to work, but I read a few posts that said stealing the key from the mother (forget her name) and entering the house will activate the quest from that point, but it didn’t work for me.
I was told by the Jarl (i completed the main quest, sided with the imperialists) that I could be Thane if I helped out 5 people and bought a house.
I’m afraid it isn’t available just yet." And I can’t buy it! I know it has something to do with the butcher, but I can’t get anyone to talk about the murders, which means I can’t start the quest, which means I can’t buy the house.
I guess if you finish the murder quest and don’t buy the house right away it’s gone.
You can also join the stormcloaks and do some of their quest line to get the house.
Higher ratings are reached by having more submissions, being a pro submitter, a game expert and having good thumb ratings for sufficient submissions on the site.
In for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360, Hjerim is the house you’ll be able to purchase in Windhelm once you gain enough favor with the Jarl there, and costs 12,000 gold.
mabye a temporary glitch and things like that can ware off in time, or could be that you can’t buy the house in windhelm if you are with the imerials.
Try playing on through your save as you would usually for a bit then later on try for the house again; it happened to me with proudspire manor and worked, hope I helped.
The dark elves have settled in Windhelm as it was the first city they encountered when escaping the burning of Red Mountain.
The city is divided into four quarters, one of which (The Grey Quarter) is a slum for the much maligned Dark Elf.
Windhelm is a major city in Skyrim and the center of the Stormcloak rebellion against the Imperial Army.
From dungeon diving, bandit killing, drunk helping, brawling and rare gifts it’ll be easy to rack up some loot and some gold.
There are a few things worth stealing in the knapsack in her living quarters (just to the left at the bottom of the first set of stairs).
The house Hjerim can be purchased in Windhelm by completing certain Stormcloak quests.
Hey I've completed the Imperial Legion quests and conquered Windhelm, and when I talk to the steward about buying the house.
What I figured out is there is a known glitch for buying the house in Markarth but, has anyone figured out a work around? I completed the first quest, have not been able to get them to offer me another one and no ability to buy a house? This is for MARKARTH not Windhelm or Whiterun (I already own Breezehome (and am about to kill my thieving husband because barrels are coming up empty along with lots of other ‘missing’ items, married Marcurio from Riften and items missing are showing up in his inventory for sale)).
You guys, to purchase the house in Markarth you need to be at LEAST level 20, after that talk to the jarl and if you already finished forsworn quests for him, he’ll give you a personal quest to find something that belonged to his father.
Hey, I only bought the house in whiterun before finishing the main quest, and i think its noteworthy that after that I could buy riften’s and markarth’s without any further quests at all… it seems that completing the main quest already makes you elegible to buy houses anywhere.
Oh my god are all of you people retarded “I have just bought a house, where do i find it?” Right after you have purchased your house from a Jarls Steward there is a map marker that directs you to, believe it or not, the front door of your newly purchase house.
I’ve read a few comments of people having issues with not having the option to buy a house after finishing the Jarl’s quest.
Hey guys I’m trying to buy a house in windhelm and i’ve assisted all 5 citizens in the hold, and the new Jarl gave me the option to buy a house but when i talk Jorleif (the guy her sells it) he tells me that the house is not available due to recent unpleasantness.
To get the house in Windhelm without cheating or glitching, complete the imperials questline, if you are in the imperial army, and the new jarl will make you a thane and offer to sell you that house (if you have helped the required people), which will trigger the Blood on the Ice quest if it has not already somehow been done.
All he says is stuff like “yes?” “Need something?” “I’m retarded, I don’t want you to have a sweet house, so I won’t even talk to you.” If anybody can tell me why this douche won’t talk to me, or how I can upgrade it, I would appreciate it.
“I cant find the house i just bought” is one of the funniest comments i have ever read on the internet! People look at the map!! it’s what its their for and it will show you exactly where the houses are.
