This is intended for new (or new-ish) players who are in need of a small house. Being that I've recently seen multiple posts from new players having trouble finding a spot to place a house, I thought I would see if there is any interest in a service like this.
How it works:
1) You send me a PM requesting the general area you would like a small house.
2) I scope out the area and place a house as close to your desired location as possible. I will be using my own deed at this time.
3) I contact you upon placement of the house, we meet there (or at a bank and I gate you there).
4a) If you like the location, you hand me a deed to cover the cost and I will transfer the house to you. I will not charge any gps over deed cost for this service.
4b) If you prefer, I will be happy to just redeed my house and let you place your own in its spot.
5) The services are deemed complete.
I decided I wanted to do more to help new players and this is an area I feel I have some skill above and beyond the average player. I have placed a TON of houses in my time here. I do this because it seemed it might be something new players might like to take advantage of, out of love for UOSA, and to give back to the server and the community that has provided me so much entertainment and nostalgia since I came here.
How to protect yourself:
If you choose option 4a, I will always tell you my character's name and appearance details via PM when we're meeting up and will change the house sign to say your name (or something like that) WHILE YOU ARE THERE to show you that I own the house before the transfer of any deeds. While I will make every effort to minimize the risk to you, but it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to take every necessary precaution when making trade deals with ANY player in-game. I will never ask for the deed before these steps are taken and before you feel confident you are actually dealing with me, but I will require the deed transfered to me before I transfer the house to your character. If, at any point, you feel uncomfortable or nervous, simply ask me to redeed the house so you can place your own, and I will be happy to do so.
IRL I am a busy guy and I'm not always available on a moment's notice, but I will do my best to accomodate all requests as quickly as I'm able.
So, if you're in need of a small house and are having a hard time finding a spot for one, please feel free to contact me via PM or reply to this post.
