Where to buy land in Skyrim’s question is very easy. As long as you have the money and the time to complete the quest from Jarl then you’ll have a land plot in no time. Please note this in Heartfire DLC. You cannot buy land if you do not have the DLC.
There are 3 land plots you can buy. There is the Falkreath, the Pale, and the Hjaalmarch. All three land plots are slightly different. The only big difference would be the land’s location and the landscape. There are no major advantages over the other.
Although, some locations like Hjaalmarch may not be completely safe and so the land of the Pale. They all have something unique like the Pale land plot containing a bee farm. However, these very small and may be redundant by choosing where to buy the land.
Now, let’s go over where to buy the land in Skyrim and complete all the requirements.
If you’re struggling where to get clay in Skyrim then here is an article on how to get clay, stones, and wood.
Complete Two Missions in Heljarchen Hall
This land plot is located in the in the Pale. More specifically in the south Pale very close to the Tower of Mzark. It is available in the White Hall for 5000 coins. All you have to do is speak with Jar of the Dawnstar.
Before you can purchase the land, you will have to complete a couple of missions. The mission “Waking Nightmare” and “Kill the Giant“. Keep in mind that Skald must remain Jarl. Also, you have to be level 22 in order to start this quest.
If you become a Thane of the Hold then a housecarl, a bodyguard, will be assigned to your property. His name is Gregor.
Buy The House in Lakeview Manor
The land plot is located in Falkreath Hold close by Pinewatch. You can purchase the land in Jarl’s Longhouse, also for 5000 coins. Just speak to Steward of the Falkreath.
This property also has a quest that needs to be complete before you can purchase the land. You have to complete “Kill the Bandit Leader” and make sure Siddgeir remains in jail. Unknown if there is a level requirement.
If you’re a Thane and decide to get this property then you will get a housecarl named Rayya.
The House in Windstad Manor
This land plot is located in Hjaalmarch. It is for sale for 5000 coins and sold in Highmoon Hall. You just speak to Morthal to purchase the land. Keep in mind you have to complete a quest first.
You must complete the quest, “Laid to Rest” and Idgrod must remain Jarl.
If you’re part of the Thane of the Hold then a housecarl will be assigned to you named Valdimar.
Which is the best Heathfire land plot?
This is not an easy question to answer as it may vary from each person likings and play style.
The land plots are located in three different areas with three different types of land. The Danwstar is all cover in Snow, Morthal is in a swamp, and Falkreath is in the wood. Based on your character, choose something close that resembles your character characteristic and style.
Or not. You can approach this in a totally subjective way. You can choose your land plot however you please. I would prefer the woods because I personally like nature but maybe you like snow and your ideal house would be in a snow place.
Now each land plot comes in with few extra goodies that might interest you before your decision.
The Falkreath land, you’re surrounded by a quarry and it also has a Bee farm. The only thing to note that the location may be a bit too out of place due to the land being all the way to the south.
The Hjaalmarch land has a fish hatchery which could be very useful if you’re into that. The land may be not safe due to vampires and Chaurus Reapers among others nearby. It is also is located in a swamp so it may be not appealing to many. Again, it depends on what kind of character you have and how challenging your needs are.
The Pale land plot has a grain mill. Aside from the great view, giants are the only trouble NPCs that might cause you trouble.
