Medieval 'House Hunters': If Your Favorite Game of Thrones Characters Were on the Show

Just think of them as buyers in the epic real estate market that is Westeros.

The Doe Castle in Ireland could easily stand in for one of Westeros's real estate stars.

If you think about it, HBO's Game of Thrones is all about real estate: Who has it, who wants it, and who's losing it. With that in mind, we're reimagining the plot as one big episode of House Hunters. In honor of Sunday's season finale, here's what some of our favorite characters are in the market for...and their real estate deal-breakers. 

Take heed, GOT binge-watchers: This post is dark and full of spoilers.

Must-Haves: A classic fall-for-the-first-house-you-see type, the Mother of Dragons has one request and one request only: Exclusive access to the Iron Throne. 

Deal-Breaker: Overbearing real estate agents. She wants what she wants. 

Petyr Baelish

Must-Haves: Secret passageways and dark corners perfect for lurking. And granite countertops.

Cersei Lannister

Must-Haves: All gold everything! 

Deal-Breakers: Not one for a fixer upper, Cersei is sure to reject homes in need of even the smallest of fixes. Yes, she's that person who rejects a house for flowery wallpaper or a weird purple hue. THAT'S NOTHING A CAN OF PAINT CAN'T FIX, CERSEI. 

Jon Snow

Must-Haves: The three things you must have in real estate? Location, location, location. Read: A location far away from Castle Black. 

Deal-Breaker: Sellers who drive a hard bargain. No means no.  

Melisandre

Must-Haves: A centuries-old home that looks brand new. (Just don't look at it too closely.) Plus a cauldron, and blackout curtains. 

Deal-Breaker: Nosy neighbors.
