Noob housing question

    Hey all, quick question. I own a place in a decent spot near luna, full house would be impossible to bank it all. What happens when I want to upgrade (looking for a place to set up shop near a gate), does it all go int he moving crate when i transfer ownership? Do I have to bank all my stuff, unbuild/sell my house, and then buy the house? Any help would be appreciated, I am so confused. Thanks,

    Go ahead and place your new house.

    You then have one week to empty the old house, moving it to your new house or banking some of the items.

    At the end of the seven days, if you have not demolished the old house(to get your original investment), or traded it, or given it away, it will just fall, and any junk you didnt move, will fall to the ground.

    The original house goes "Condemned" and you have around 7 days to move everything to the new place.

    Many people, myself included have had the IDOC timer go wonky, and houses have fallen in less than 7 days, so to be on the safe side, I would make sure all your stuff is out in 5 days.

    If you are placing a new house spot the game will begin to decay your present home soon as ya place the new one like the others have said. While we should have 7 days, it is better to go with 5 or LESS. EA may surprise us with a mega patch, that may or may not patch for ya or any of us, and the timer keeps on working in game, even when we can not get back into game, due to computer issues or patch issues. IE Gitter done FASTER !

    IF you are buyin an in game house or house plot off someone from this shard BE SURE YA KNOW WHOM YOU ARE BUYING FROM !! IF you are selling a home plot to someone on this shard, do make sure YOUR stuff is out of there, way before ya tranfer any home or plot over, to THEM !


    As the um 'Queen of moving contents of entire homes' on this shard over night or even faster and moving around on Siege, way too much, :) I will add...

    Move whatever is BLESSED first that which even if someone pks ya on Siege in theory they can not steal dryloot ya *blessed items* like vet rewards etc. Move those over first cuz the most observant will already know when someone anyone is moving. Then move the rest of the stuff over at some quieter time of day or nite. Whatever ya can put on commodity deeds, get them all set up and ready before ya move.. less lugging heavy stuff around.

    RL moving van companies also move us by ROOM or floor levels, makes it a lot easier even in a game if we pack our stuff up from our prior home by floor levels too, cuz we knew our former floor level plan...be way easier unpacking it all in the new house by........floor levels or room types. Organise it all up BEFORE ya move and the move will go swiftly and normally without issue. :)

    not gonna really matter who you buy your new house from as the checks you give him are blessed. just dont carry anything of value when you do buy it.

    also i dont think blessed items will stay with you if they are in a bag or container and you are killed.
