How can they possibly charge $130-$150 for a house

The new house - Princely Dawnlight Palace - costs 17,500 crowns to buy furnished.

Who can justify such a large price? I don’t see how the seller OR the buyer can reasonably defend these prices.

What planet are they on? And who is buying these homes?

If you’ve spent anywhere near this price on a house please explain the justification you made to do so. I just DONT get it. Even as a guild house, the game devs really shouldn’t be asking more than $15-$30 tops for these. They’re selling houses at 7x-8x the value of the base game plus dlc. It’s mind boggling to me.

    at least if houses were good to something else rather than dress-up game

    what is this forum and why i don't like it:
    - complainers that cry without reason and without solution
    - trolls that give cheap or useless answers
    - people giving advice with counters that are not viable
    - bloggers that talk about their day or what they use in game
    - roleplayers that talk about fashion
    - people with solutions or bug reports are ignored
    - people that write walls of text without reason

    Because people are buying it, if people didn't buy it then they'd reduce the price.

    People who have gathered crowns over months through eso+ and don't know how to spend them ? But yeah for non-eso+, going ahead and buying crowns just for a house is a steal... :D the price is crazy.

    A picture painting of Picasso recently sold for 115 million dollars. Obviously that is also a form of investment ...

    It's all relative. I'm not paying those prices though. Out of principle and the wrath of my better half. :D

    Because in the majority of the world digitally created items are worth nothing to them since it's just a click of a button you can't bring Picasso back from the dead to create another master piece. I also believe the majority of the value of those paintings by famous artists not resides in what they drew but who they were imo.

    Oh absolutely - and I appreciate art, but if you think what 115m would mean to a lot of people on this planet ... really peanuts talking about a digital house. My perspective right now, that's all.

    I wouldn't buy it furnished, and I'd have to

    1. Check it out and see what it looks like
    2. Make sure I have enough crowns from my recent ESO+ renewal.

    Basicly if it wouldnt sell for that price they would either lower the price or no longer make them.

    At the end of the day: it's no one else's business.

    Buy it if you want, don't if you don't.

    At the end of the day people are gonna pay so ZOS is gonna sell.

    It's good for the game as a whole, and frankly if you can't afford/don't want to spend out on some pixels, then don't.

    The business of saying it's just a bunch of pixels whilst simultaneously being salty about the price of a bunch of pixels isn't logical.

    Either you want it or not, then you can buy it or not.

    Don't assign zero value to it whilst complaining that it's too expensive because you want it, even though as also pointed out, it is essentially useless.

    It's a luxury (as so many have pointed out) so you can afford luxuries or you can't/won't.

    That's the end of it.

    Spot on. I'm always amazed at how salty people get about other people and how they spend their hard earned money...The judgement is unreal and reeks of something else entirely

    I admit I was a bit judgmental on someone that literally spent 30k on SC but I don't mean to be judgemental about those that spend more sane amounts of real $ on online games but rather than finding an average ground for everyone not just the ones well off in the real world.
