Is the Dream Home Trait in Starfield Worth It? – Answered

Your dreams aren't so dreamy when you get into the finer details.

When you first make your character in Starfield, you’re met with a host of traits that can possibly be picked, each affecting a small portion of gameplay. The Extrovert trait, for example, improves your stats when running with a companion of any type. One such trait offers up a roof with a hefty downside. Here’s whether the Dream Home trait in Starfield is worth it.

Should You Get the Dream Home Trait in Starfield?

The Dream Home trait in Starfield provides you with a house immediately without needing to do any of the extra work or paying a heap of Credits. The downside is that this comes with a 125,000 Credit mortgage that you’ll have to pay back over time. That’s a pretty significant downside since you might not get more than a few hundred thousand Credits in a standard playthrough.

It’s because of that that we don’t believe the Dream Home trait is worth it. Having a house in Starfield is nice since it lets you have a personalized living space with some extent of decoration, but it is purely cosmetic and for roleplay purposes. You won’t get anything practical out of it, so it’s likely you’ll visit it once and forget about it.

Even those who appreciate living spaces like that can easily get a free apartment by completing the United Colonies faction storyline and all side missions that come with it. Why waste those Credits when you can make them during the storyline, get a house, and spend them on something like supplies, weapons, or whatever else you want to spend Credits on?
