I was wondering if you can get your own house in Fallout: New Vegas like you did in Fallout 3?

Maybe you should add if you want a spoiler-free answer or not. I assumed you don't want any spoilers. –  Mad Scientist Nov 5 '10 at 19:43

You can get your own place if you follow the main quest. For this one you can also buy upgrades.

There is an earlier opportunity to rent a motel room (forever).

Additionally, and this is very useful early-game when you might not want to spend caps on a room, you can store items pretty much indefinitely at The Goodsprings Schoolhouse –  John Rudy Nov 5 '10 at 20:29
    
@John : other safe places in Goodsprings are the boxes between the store and the saloon, or inside the Doc's place. (wih the boxes being convenient to stash stuff right near the workbench and reloading bench ... if only there were a campfire nearby, too) –  Joe Nov 5 '10 at 21:58

@Joe: There's a campfire not far away, I think at the Goodsprings Source? –  John Rudy Nov 6 '10 at 1:36
    
@John : yeah, it's just a little bit of a hike, so not good when you want to finally go and process the 300lb of dirty water and 500 lbs of meat you've slowly collected. (I need to get that ability to fast travel while overloaded perk) –  Joe Nov 6 '10 at 2:01
    
@Joe: I got that one. Ironically, I haven't used it yet ... –  John Rudy Nov 6 '10 at 19:31

There is also an unoccupied shack right next to a burial ground near Good Springs. The only downside is there are a small portion of Radscorpians.

The Jean Sky Diving shack, down the road from Goodsprings, is also a good storage house with only two Powder Gangers and some Bloatflies out back.

Get in a house, kill whoever is in there, and just stash your stuff there.

For example:

Kill Victor (you are gonna do it anyway in the storyline, unless you are the kind of guy that does anything you're told and be House's dog) and take his shack.

Also, there are several abandoned places which would do just fine.

That's great advice if you want to lose all of your stuff to cell resets. –  kotekzot Oct 11 '12 at 6:54

All you need to do is find Harper's Shack. It's just north and east of hidden springs. It has a campfire outside for crafting, a reloading bench, a workbench, lockers, storage boxes and a bed. The only downside is it's near a deathclaw cave. Easily avoidable and/or assaulted

You can use Victor's shack in Good Springs: that's the first house you can get. You've got a bed to sleep in, a sink which is purified, a oven to store your aids, a couple of ammo boxes to store weapons and ammo, and also a desk to store your miscellaneous stuff. It's also free of charge; there's no need to rent a motel room.

You also get a room for free at the Wrangler once you have collected every debt and taken care of the previous debt collector (which is the last task of that quest).

There are two 'homes'. When you reach Novac, there is a Motel room you can rent, which is safe to store stuff and rest in, and if you complete the quest One for My Baby by accusing the actual perpetrator, you'll receive it permanently at no charge.

Further along the main quest, once you reach The Strip, you'll be given access to the Presidential Suite at the Lucky 38 Hotel and Casino. This functions more like the house you gained in FO3, in that when you dismiss companions, you can have them wait for you in the Suite, and you can purchase various 'upgrades' to add more style and functionality to the apartment. There are also several mods that add additional crafting resources or other customizations, if you're playing on the PC.

Also, snowglobes you collect are in your room in the Lucky 38, making it much like the homes in Fallout 3 (bobbleheads) –  user56 Nov 5 '10 at 19:47
