Ashen SeraphYou don't need to make it to thane, you only need to get in the Jarls' favor. That said, it's the same method, only you don't need to bother helping people other than the Jarls' personal mission.

Platypus OwlAs SeraphimNeeded said, I achieved this today with Morthal without Thane status. I did the full quest of Investigating the Burned House (I'll save the spoilers) and the Jarl then said I could obtain Thane Status if I would help other people in town (I had done 2 previous Dragon hunts for the town so it said I was at 2/3 completed towards Thane). Either way I was able to buy the land from Aslfur in the other room.

I never saw a courier at all, I simply was able to buy the land immediately after turning in the last part of the Morthal Burned House questline.
