option to trade in or sell houses?

would really love for this to become available

if not sell to other players, then at least "trade in" (up or down to bigger or smaller houses)

it only makes sense to have a feature like this based on fact that people earn more gold and figure out how far they want to get into the housing

and it works for Zenimax because if players want to spend Crowns on a house and then sell it for Gold then Zenimax gets paid either way?

    Grand theft auto has a very similar feature you just pick new house and can trade in old one for value towards new one and rest comes out of cash

    I would also like to see the option to upgrade existing properties. Maybe only giving half original value back could work only if used to buy another property?

    edit - I see why you think p2w or w/e, that's not what I want, I don't care if I get full amount back or not, I don't care if its back to some magical vendor in game, or guild store, heck I don't care if its crowns or gold

    I just want to be able to "upgrade" or "move" instead of buying "more" of these houses - there's hardly any point in having them at all as it is at this moment anyway

    Perhaps the way to go on that is if you purchased with crowns, a refund of X amount of crowns is due or more likely something like a credit to redeem on housing only crown items. Which are already bound to you anyway.

    I fully agree, that we should be able to sell houses we bought for gold.
    If not the full money return, than at least half the price we paid.
    Why would I need to keep that small Humblemud if I already can afford Gymnarth, but I lack 50k gold for the bigger one. Or if I can buy a manor for 1,3 mil and that is my whole gold, but I lack e.g 150k, this refunded gold from selling smaller house would help me buying larger.
    Usually having more than single house is pointless. And keeping empty houses we cannot do anything with is bad for the game and server, beter give us an option to remove them from server giving us gold in return :).

    having multiple houses means having multiple free ports to whatever zone(which you can get through guild/friends but still marginally useful.

    yep, barely worth it, since you can port to friends or guildies

    People can be pretty critical of anything resembling P2W, and this might tip it over the edge. I like your idea, but Crowns have to be left out of it.

    Maby if it was a house you could only buy with gold and can trade for only gold.

    I'd like the option to buy a tower (like the Mages Tower in Alik'r) as a home and be able to have it built someplace useful in A/D territory.

    I'd be willing to make a cultural concession and have it built according to local custom/style, but it'd have to be a domicile.

    Having the option to trade up to a larger house without being required to stay invested in a smaller one is just foolish, but I'm sure the game wants to keep the current system as a way to suck resources out of players pockets.

    I have purchased Autumn's Gate first. Then I realized that it's too small for me and I bought large home in Narsis. After that I realized that I've collected 1 million gold and I can get a Forgotten Stronghold. I have purchased Stronghold then.
    Now I've got two houses that I don't need.
    I never used them even for free travelling, It's make no sense for me to travel to my home in Narsis and then go through the loading screen to go to the wayshrine to travel to Mornhold (the same for Autumn's Gate). It's a long way with 3 loading screens, so there's no profit at all.
    One of the two of us definitely has gone mad. It only remains to define whether this one is the world or me.

    Since their are achievements tied to owning homes Zos will not be doing a trade in or add an ability to sell back the home.

    why not? you don't have to own ALL houses, just make it ALL houses purchased and done

    Then the game becomes P2W which would upset >80% of the player base. It would also cause massive in game gold inflation because players like me with disposable income would buy all the houses and then trade them in, and would be sitting on millions of in game gold. I would spend none of my time farming or grinding, I would simply buy all the gear and mats I needed and pvp all the time and people would say no faaaaare

    That being said, I would love the ability to sell houses I bought and furnished with in-game gold in an auction house/or at a guild trader. But I think that is WAY too complicated for their team and servers to handle right meow. Lol.

    we can refine the idea

    I just want at least an ability to "trade up" or "down" or something

    I don't care much about selling or trading, would be nice though, I want just to delete an ugly inn room from my list. Wish we could have that option.

    I want the ability to sell houses I bought I paid for them right!

    _ there's no pay to win at all and p2w is now a misused word and used for personal trolling in my view.
