How To Purchase A House In Final Fantasy XIV

In this post, we will tell you that everything you need to know about player housing, and of course, including how to purchase a personal house or just a Free Company house.


As a matter of fact, housing is the true endgame in Final Fantasy XIV. Between gardening, decorating, and owning a cozy nook to AFK (Away From Keyboard) in, everybody wants a place to live.


Housing is not guaranteed, though, and there are quite a few criteria you will have to fit in before you can snag a place to just lay your head.


Purchasing A Personal House:


If you want to purchase a personal house, you need to be at least level 50 and you have already reached the Second Lieutenant rank with your Grand Company. In order to buy a house in Shirogane, you must have met these requirements, what's more, you have also completed the Stormblood quest "Not Without Incident."


Alt-aholics beware: You only can own just one personal house per service account on each server. For instance, you just can not own two personal homes on Zalera, but you can have one on Zalera and one on Matteus.


Buying A Free Company House:


Your Free Company must have 4 or more members and have already reached Rank 6 in order to purchase a house. The leader of Free Company must also have set your rank with permission to purchase or just relinquish your land.


The player who is buying this plot can not have another character on the very same server who is the leader of a Free Company that owns a house. Most players do not have multiple alternatives who lead Free Companies, therefore, this is not a common issue.


Keeping Your House In-Game:


Keep in mind that there are no additional Final Fantasy XIV Gil costs once you buy a home, but you must enter your house once every 45 days to keep your plot. If you do not follow this step, then this plot will be seen as abandoned and will go back up for sale again.


And for those Free Company houses, at least one member of the Free Company must enter the house at least once every 45 days.


Final Fantasy XIV Housing Cost:


This just goes the same as the reality, housing prices vary depending on the size of the house, the desirability of the plot, and how long the house has already been on the market. Usually, the small houses cost 3 to 4 million FFXIV Gil, medium houses cost about 15 to 20 million Final Fantasy XIV Gil, and for large houses are between 40 to 50 million Gil. Each house's price decreases every four hours, but unless you are going for the most undesirable plot in the game on a quite low-population server, this is unlikely to make a great difference in your own cost.


Final Fantasy XIV Housing Availability:


Here comes the biggest barrier to obtaining a house in Final Fantasy XIV is availability. The very same number of plots are available on each server, therefore, for instance, it is substantially much easier to purchase a house on Siren than it is on Balmung.


On a low-pop server, you can just walk up to an empty plot right now and then purchase a plot of land. While you are on more crowded servers, you will notice yourself embroiled in a 14-hour binge of clicking on a placard while you wait for the random plot availability timer to complete, and that means if you do not lose out to someone who clicked much faster at the precise moment the house became available.


Final Fantasy XIV Housing Relocation:


Once you own a house, then you are able to relocate to a new plot without having to wait for the housing timer. And once a house is relinquished, it kicks off a random timer: This plot now is only available to players who already own houses for 12 to 24 hours.


When you are relocating your home, you will get a discount on the new plot based on the size of your old plot. Relocation moves all of your housing items into the storage so that you can decorate your new digs easily. Your housing skin automatically scales to the size of your new house, so your quite small chocobo cottage turns into a quite larger chocobo mansion.


And there you have it, and that is how to purchase a house in Final Fantasy XIV. If you would like to know more information about Final Fantasy XIV, for example, the easiest methods to earn Final Fantasy XIV Gil, and the basic information about FFXIV, you can click here.
