Like many MMOs, New World allows players to purchase property in various towns around the world. There are 4 tiers of homes available and while not every settlement has them all, it's easy to get on the property ladder if you have the coin.
Unlike most other MMOs though, the costs don't stop once you've purchased and decorated your newfound property, so here we'll take a look at how house taxes work in New World.
New World House Tax System
There are many benefits of owning a house, with it giving you extra storage and an additional free global fast travel marker similar to an inn. As you level up in New World you will gain access to more than one house, reaching up to a total of 3 at level 55, giving you free travel across the map.
Unfortunately, the companies who govern towns will tax you for the privilege of living there, making you pay a weekly property tax. This tax is set like trading and crafting, so expect it to change with the whims of management or if a company controlling the area changes.
As a quick guide, for each tier of housing in a low tax town expect to be set back 250 gold per week, so 250/500/750/1000. Although if it is your first house, you get a discount on that along with the initial purchase price of 50% making it a good idea to save and buy something bigger.
Territory Standing bonuses can also be chosen to reduce the property taxes even further, but this might not be the best use of the levels as other bonuses could earn you more than you'd save or be more useful to your playstyle.
This tax isn't a mortgage though, and you're in no danger of losing your house if you choose not to pay. Instead, nonpayment will stop you from redecorating, disable all trophy bonuses, and perhaps most importantly, prevent you from using the house's fast travel option.
