I love the idea of houses, i used to play AO (Anarchy Online) for about 5 years before i stopped and the housing system in there and guild cities was a realy nice way of just relaxing with your mates and chatting about stuff, or having guild auctions or just a plain party or pvp tournament. the best thing about it was you could buy furnature, lamps, pictures lots of things to outfit the house. some of the best house items would be given from events, i got a gold widescreen TV in my house that was cool.
Another thing u could do which i thought was realy cool was u could use the house as a warehouse and store all the items u dont want in the house instead of a NPC bank.
as long as the player house's dont interfear with the actual gameplay i think there a perfect place to save, store items like a warehouse, have parties and just relax. the guild house's would rule, players could come into the house meet the guild, sign up for the guild, have meetings in special rooms, have a small inhouse trade area etc etc etc. unlimited possibilities.
Just had a realy vivid vision :P, imagine a guild style house like the ones in oblivion (single player RPG) where you can go in and there are member rooms, trade and selling people where as a member you can place items to sell or buy items of other memebrs, a guild roster and register where u can look at the information about the guild from books, these could include information on what the guild has done like wars, tournaments etc. maybe even meeting rooms and party rooms where u can talk tactics or meet for a dungeon raid or a grinding party etc.
Just goes on and on
