Who do I need to talk to to purchase a house in Falkreath? Is there one even available there?

You can buy a house in Falkreath, but only if you have Hearthfire. In vanilla Skyrim, houses are only available in:

  • Windhelm
  • Whiterun
  • Markarth
  • Riften
  • Solitude

This leaves Falkreath, Dawnstar, Morthal, and Winterhold without houses. The Hearthfire addon allows you to build houses in 3 of these areas - Dawnstar, Morthal, and Falkreath, leaving only Winterhold without a house you can buy.

Awww, would have been the perfect place for my wood elf. Thanks, Mark! – Ryan Hayes Nov 14 '11 at 22:24
That's stupid, Falkreath is my favorite of the skyrim towns. It is beautiful like Riverwood. Who would want to live in Windhelm instead? Markarth I suppose will be where I live then, as its the least capable of getting burned by Dragons. – user14510 Nov 16 '11 at 7:41
@Slayer Not much of a Nord if you think Windhelm isn't located in a beautiful area of the country. – JClaspill Nov 21 '11 at 20:11
note that these are also the only cities that have a loading screen when you enter the city. – alexanderpas Dec 4 '11 at 23:34
Too bad, I think Falkreath is my favorite too. Or maybe Riverwood. They remind me of trips to the cabin when I was a kid. – user16954 Dec 23 '11 at 5:46
