how to buy a house lotro

The type of house you buy is completely up to you, as each standard, deluxe and kinship house is basically the same size in each homestead, with different layouts and scenery.
There are 4 types of neighborhoods and housing styles to choose from: Elven in Falathlorn, Dwarven in Thorin’s Gate, Hobbit in The Shire and Man in Bree-lands.
Be aware though that those houses in scenic areas go for a bit more than the exact same house on a flat lot with minimal scenery.

I was just playing and leveling when i hit the money-cap and thought of doing this clip for anyone interested.

Each neighborhood instance has 4 Kinship houses, 10 Deluxe houses, and 6 Standard houses.
Only one character on your account can own a Standard or Deluxe house, and only one character in your kinship can own a kinship house.
To purchase a Standard or Deluxe house in Lord of the Rings Online you need to be level 15.
Typically, you can expect to spend about 1g for a Standard house, 7g for a Deluxe house, and 15g for a Kinship house.
The other button allows you to enter "Decorating Mode." When you are in decorating mode you can right-click on your house’s hooks to add or remove decorations.
Standard houses have the smallest number of "hooks" (slots for furniture and other decorations) and can only have one storage chest.
Maintenance is paid weekly, and is approximately 50s per week for a Standard, 150s per week for a Deluxe, and 300s per week for a Kinship.
If you wish to purchase a Kinship house, you also need to be the leader of a kinship that has reached Rank 7.
One allows you to pay maintenance, purchase chests, and grant access to the house (and its chests) to your friends.
Kinship houses have a tremendous amount of hooks and can have up to three storage chests.
Once you decide what type of neighborhood you want, visit the housing broker for that race’s housing district.
Because any character receives A) the free Return Home skill providing free fast travel to any milestone of the player’s choice, B) a Racial Trait at a certain level providing free transport to their racial home town, C) a free Travel to Kinship House skill (if being in a Kinship and the Kinship owns such a house), and D) a free Travel to Personal House skill bound to the characters on the same world and account.
If a character is a member of a kinship that has a kinship house, they will receive a Travel to Kinship House skill having a one hour cooldown separate from other recall skill cooldowns.
Whether it’s for a personal house or a kinship house, housing chests will allow for additional item storage.
When housing upkeep is overdue, instead of foreclosing on your personal or kinship house, your house becomes locked.
If your kinship owns a house, any member of the kinship can pay the housing upkeep cost at any time.
When you purchase a home, your name will be displayed in the billboard, under the radar, and in the Housing Info panel, along with the house address.
To purchase a housing chest, get to your house property and click Housing Management on your radar.
When you abandon a house, all items inside your house will be immediately placed into your housing escrow.
All of the items in your house (decorations and items in the housing chests) will be placed into your Housing Escrow upon abandonment of a house.
You can continue to add furnishings to your house wherever exterior and interior housing hooks are available.
Visitors cannot access your housing chests, pay upkeep, or interfere with your house decorations.
With the House Purchase panel open, click on any of the neighborhoods in the neighborhood list on the left to display houses for sale in that neighborhood.
Think of housing upkeep as rent (or mortgage) that you must pay in order to retain ownership of the house.
Housing upkeep is a real-time weekly fee that must be paid in order to avoid house locking.
Items which were inside the house can only be retrieved from Housing Escrow via a Vault-Keeper.
To get items to decorate your house, visit a Housing Furnisher.
Housing Furnishers offer many different items which you can decorate your house with.
Once you are, visit a Housing Broker (or just go into a housing neighborhood and house hunt).
If you own a personal house, (be it standard or deluxe) you are solely responsible for housing upkeep.
A house owner can give another person all housing permissions, but ultimately only one person has ownership of a house.
Once a housing chest has been purchased, it will be placed inside your house.
You can unlock your house at any time by paying a restoral fee via the housing maintenance UI.
However, if one of your characters is a kinship leader of a kinship of Rank 7 or greater, that character is eligible to purchase a kinship house.
Housing Escrow is where your items/gold go when you have abandoned a house.
Housing Storage Housing Storage upgrades Tier Slots Total In-game money or MC Housing Chest Space I 15 15 1   100   Housing Chest Space II +15 30 5   100   Housing Chest Space III +15 45 9   100   Housing Chest Space IV +15 60 27   100   Housing Chest Space V +15 75 100   Housing Chest Space VI +15 90 100   Housing Chest Space VII +15 105 100   Housing Chest Space VIII +15 120 100   Housing Escrow If this occurs, you may need to purchase additional Housing Storage to "free" up space so that you can add things to your Housing Storage.
Floor and Wall: Players can customize the floor and wall textures and colours by purchasing the appropriate items from the Housing Furnishers inside the homesteads, or via an Auction House for paints crafted by Scholars.
Abandoning a house Lockout Lockout occurs if you have failed to pay the current upkeep payment due by the date indicated in the Housing Upkeep panel.
With 1G +- you can get a modest house, and with more gold you can get a medium house.
its not that much gold i thought it was around 1-3 gold for the house size.
I am planning on doing that so how much does a basic house cost.
Note also that there will likely be a major housing revision in the next release, if not then, in the Helm’s Deep expansion in the Fall.
Getting a house is nice, but the neighbourhoods are dead, atm.
The most expensive houses are the kinship ones, but, as the name says, it’s suited for a kinship.
Note: This is ONLY to be used to report spam, advertising, and problematic (harassment, fighting, or rude) posts.
Kinship houses aren’t left out, either-if you’re in a kinship which has purchased a house, then you will receive a second skill to travel straight to your Kinship house.
are there any plans by lotro to improve the housing aspect of the game? it would be nice if a toon with farming prof can plant every inch of the yard, i sure would to plant all sorts of flowers there, & may be put up a greenhouse or a butterfly farm, & for hobbits may be a pig/sheep breeding farm, this would definitely be a great end game for me.
Due to the high level of interest in the new Housing feature of Book 11 there will be additional Housing Brokers available to help you to find and purchase your new property! These extra Brokers are in addition to the Housing Brokers that are located near the entrances to the neighborhoods.
Four homesteads will become available with the release of Book 11, each one in a different part of the world with a different neighborhood layout of houses, different building styles and appearances, and different natural settings.
While your house is locked, you are denied the benefits of home ownership, including entry, access to storage, decorations, travel skill, and vendor discounts.
“When housing upkeep is overdue, instead of foreclosing on your personal or kinship house, we “lock” the house.
To get started, visit the Furnisher in your neighborhood and pick up a few things to place in your house or in your yard.
Note: bears and pigs and other mobs drop both things like "[adjective] leathers" and "[adjective] skins" which include text about "trophies can be turned in for tasks or sold for silver".
Get a Deluxe one if you can afford it (VIP or have removed Gold Cap – ~7g purchase price) – you won’t regret the extra chest, and having one more room makes decorations, trophies and "living space" that much better.
I’m not really F2P (am premium, been VIP for 1 month), but I have bought off the gold cap from the store and currently have about 25 mounts on my primary character alone The gold cap is expensive at first, but it’s a must have for players once you reach higher levels, because all usefull stuff at the auction hall will also get a lot pricier (in extreme cases over 100 gold).
Because I am F2P, I can’t buy a bigger house because of the gold cap! I wish they would develop a savings/house account type system.
Except you need to either pay ~500 TP to unlock the gold cap or pay real world money to get premium status (and a gold cap of 5) before you can buy anything but the first two levels of the vault.
Generally you will get a LOT more silver for them by selling them in the Auction House to other players than by selling them to a vendor.

I bought deluxe house in Bree, on the top of the hill, just the place I wanted, and then I got the kinhouse right next to it.
1) Saved up 1,500+ in silver by killing bears and pigs and other things, selling all the things to people who buy such things.

The Buyout field is optional, but you can sometimes stand to make more money quicker by setting a high Buyout price because some people (like me) are impatient and don’t want to bother with a bidding war or wait until the auction ends to win (or lose) the bid.
Open the auction house panel at the auctioneer, select the Post tab, drag the item you wish to sell, set the price and the duration, hit Post Auction.
Save up piles of them and sell them to other players, either through the Trade chat channel or by posting auctions in the auction house.
But keep an eye on the market if you plan on doing this; you don’t want to waste time collecting Ancient Iron for three hours only to find that the auction house is flooded with the stuff and nobody is buying.
Selling crafted items and crafted components through the auction house can earn some pretty big bucks, but it can also be disappointing if you go in blind.
For other items, keeping the auction alive for longer may be necessary to ensure sale, and you may want to wait until the weekend to post them.
You can determine the worth of items by inspecting similar sales in the auction house and figuring out a rough average per-item price.
The crafted goods that sell the best are the ones that people use most often: food, tokens, scrolls and other consumable items.
Plus you’ll be getting loads of skirmish marks, which can be traded for items that sell well on the auction house.
But while consumables can provide a long-term, steady income stream, other vocations can make one-shot, big-ticket items that sell for large amounts.
Humanoid mobs tend to drop coin and other loot, and beasts and such drop loads and loads of vendor trash.
Exceptional items like raid armor and account upgrades are purchased by other means, like barter tokens, skirmish marks or Turbine Points.
You’ll have to pay a Posting Fee to post the item based on the duration of the auction.
It’s not worth your time, the posting fee and the Auction Fee you’ll pay when the item sells.
The shorter the auction duration, the closer you want the buy-in price to be to the buy-out price.
Open the Auction interface and drag your item to the Item Name box on the Auctions tab.
If you are uncertain of the buy-out price, you can set the buy-in to 50% on a long auction.
When the item sells, you’ll pay an additional Auction Fee (5% of the winning bid).
When you first post an item on the AH, what an NPC vendor would pay you for the item (vendor price) is shown in the the Initial Price field.
Create an Auction House Mule An auction house mule is an alternate character (alt) you dedicate to a staying near a mailbox, bank and auction house.
Whether you set it a little above or a little below depends on you, but remember if your item doesn’t sell the posting fee is not refunded.
I put the axe up for auction on Friday afternoon and it sells Sunday morning for the buyout of 100s.
So along with my break from game, refusal to buy anymore Turbine Points, festival boycott and protest (giving my houses back) I’m going to be doing this instead of playing the game I adore so much.
They have recently made some quality of life improvements in game play (open tapping) but it’s still an old game that can’t compete with new games for that constant influx of new players.
Chests: The number of chests depends on your house, the basic house can only have 1 chest (for 100s), Deluxe house can have 2 chests (the 2nd costs 500s), and Kinship Halls have 3 chests.
House owners can chose from 4 different neighborhoods – be it a majestic home overlooking a waterfall in Ered Luin, a cozy hobbit-hole in the Shire, a Ranger-style Cabin in Bree, or a house in the underground network of Thorin’s Gate.
You must also pay a weekly upkeep on your house, this varies depending on the house style and can go upwards of 300 silver for a Kinship Hall.
Decorating A Kinship Hall: So long as the permissions are set right, and there is room, you may place items in the Kin-home or the outside property, you can even place stuff in the available chests.
once you own a kin house you can assign permissions to other players that do not belong to the kin who owns the house, in this case your alts so they can decorate or access the storage or what ever else you want them to be able to do but, you have to manualy add each extra toon then set their level of access.
I guess I could also put one of my alts to the old kinship Y and buy a house for it, but would my other characters that are in kinship X (which also has a kinship house) be able the use and decorate kinships Y house? I would prefer keeping all my characters in the kinship X and still own a kinship house for personal use.
Thanks, but I dont think I still got an answer if my other characters in kin X would be able to use the chests and decorate the house if I’d put just one of my alts to kin Y and buy the kin house for it.
I had a kinhouse and a normal house.. but then my kinship went below 8 members (unnoticed by me) so I lost my house and spent ages trying to find a spot for all the items.
You need to pay a hell of a lot more! If you’re a free player you’ll be able to buy the first 15 slots, but that’s it if you don’t have Currency Cap removal.
If you’d like to have more slots, you need to save enough Turbine Points to buy the Currency Cap removal.
Farming Locations: My favorite place to farm silver is in the area around Brockenborings and Scary in the Shire.
Farming Locations: My favorite locations to farm copper and tin are in the Shire and Bree-land.
Farming Locations: The North Downs has always been my favorite area for this resource.
From my experience, when too many people start playing the lowest price game, it just means everyone has to go farm double the ore to make the same amount of gold.
With Update 11 came the new rules for Housing Upkeep and that will allow long abandoned houses to be put back on the market for active players to buy.
You can also pay up for something like 6 months in advance (I’m paid through November or something ridiculous like that), and the maintenance fee is such a paltry amount for high level characters that I don’t see too many houses going into forclosure.
Locked houses get a final foreclosure warning and 60 days to unlock the home.
Finally! So many houses locked of users don’t pay so many time and is still there… Thankfully shall withdraw these slackers.
Any houses that qualified for the 180-day or greater lock out and were not unlocked by the owner will be foreclosed and put back on the market.
I suspect that a lot of foreclosed houses will appear on and around July 26th for the really old lot of players who haven’t played for a long while.
Either purchase Turbine points starting at around $6 from the Turbine Store, or with a Game Card available at many retailers, or Pay for 1 month of subscription which will give you full access to all of the games content for that month, when the month is over you loose some benefits, but you will come out cheaper than if you purchased the ones you retain (packs, no currency cap, auction house etc.) than if you had purchased them individually from Turbine through the LOTRO Store.
This is really the big question, do you want to get full access to everything, or do you want to play the game spending a little at a time or in one huge purchase, are you so frugal that you want to get your enjoyment for free? Well there are options for each of you, and here we’ll discuss which of the options available to you will get you the most bang for the buck.
Oh! I loved this aspect when I tried out LotRO! I only played on a trial account for a couple of weeks so I couldn’t use the auction house, remember being dead proud that I could afford a mount when I hit the right level and that my next goal when I had a proper version of the game would be to auction all the stuff I’d saved up and buy myself a little house! I never got round to getting the full version however, I’d like to sometime.
One of my favorite things about Oblivion was the fact that you could have your own house, despite it being a single-player game that you shouldn’t even show off to other people! I remember being super excited to buy the first hosue, a decrepit little shack, because it would be mine, all mine, and I’d finally have a chance to put all the miscellaneous junk I’d been stockpiling for weeks.
