I've done the Blood on the Ice and Morning Never Comes quests and I've helped citizens and stuff but I still can't buy Hjerim.

I have an Xbox 360 so I can't use console commands but my brother's profile that is on the same Xbox got the house! I really need the house, it's perfect for me. Why can't I buy it?

  • Can you be more specific? Is the option to purchase the house not available? Is it available but doesn't seem to do anything? Et cetera. This is, unfortunately, a particularly buggy house and you may have to revert to an earlier save. – user6789 Oct 31 '14 at 16:21

Make sure you become the Thane. You can't buy a house without being the Thane of whatever city each house is located.

A good way to check is ask the current Jarl or leader of the city (or their Steward) if you can buy a house and he'll tell you if you need to do more quests and help out more citizens first.
