    Look at the word order at the start of your question.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: My house is comfortable to live in.

    Now remove the first word and capitalise the second.

    Re: My house is comfortable to live in.

    Now your question is correct. If you feel you must use the last part, use "in". However, it's somewhat redundant. "My house is comfortable" would suffice.

    Ems's approbation notwithstanding, I still have a quibble with your punctuation. When you nest quotations, you have to alternate the style of quotation marks. You also omitted t final closing quotation mark. See my corrections above.
