How does "Ask to Move-In" Works?

  • You ask other player's Sim to move in to your household and become their besties or soulmates depending on your story!

  • You need to reach level 8 relationship and a free Sim slot before you can ask someone to move in.

Benefits of Moving In

Sims that you ask to move in will carry all of their attribute like Traits, Create-a-Sim items, etc. The only downside of this is when you put some expensive stuff to your Sim and someone ask to move-in that Sim, that player can keep the items that your Sim wears!

How to "Ask to Move-in"

1. Requirements

Firstly, you need to have an empty Sim slot. You should also capable of attending parties so you should be at least Player Level 6.
Reach level 8 of any relationship stories, you can start a rival story and still able to ask them to move in.

This interaction will become available once you've reached level 8 of your relationship.

2. Request to Move-In

Once you've met and unlocked the interaction above, tap on it. This notification will appear in your end, tap the "Request to Move-in" to proceed.

The other player will receive this message in their inbox. Keep in mind that you can't send a move-in request when there's a party going on.

Once the other player tap the "Move my Sim" option, his/her Sim will immediately retire and leave an heirloom. The retired Sim will roam around your town and eventually become an elder NPC overtime.

3. Say Hello to your New Sim!

After the other player accepted the request, this message will appear in your inbox. Tap "OK" to receive the new Sim! You'll be directed into "Create-a-Sim" page and edit them to your hearts desire!


  • Communication is the key to success . Coordinate with other player to get the best result. Start a party and add the targeted Sim to your contact list. Doing this will make it easier to socialize and reach level 8 of that relationship. Also make sure to dress thatSsim with the most expensive stuff so the other players can use it without even buying the items!
  • This feature also let you play as an Elder/Retired Sim!

There is no way they will be able to see your request unless they sign back into the game and start playing. Sorry, but you might have to find someone else... Preferably someone who plays Sim Mobile more often (A LOT MORE!)

Yeah cause 98 DAYS is a LOT of time. Like around 3 MONTHS.
Can I do the “ask to move in” to NPC Sims instead of other player’s Sims?
What happens if it says I have no room in my household?

I've got a sim with a level 8 relationship with another sim, alongside only having one sim in the house (including having three playable sim slots open) but the option won't come up.

What if the sim does not belong to anybody, can they still move in with you?

Yes they can. It's the same procedure as with someone else's sim, just without the messages and stuff.
The player Sim that you move in.. Do it have to be playable?? Like can you make it move in without taking up a charter slot??
when we request to move in, does the creator of the sim still get to play with their sim?

No, unfortunately not. That would be really cool though! Only one of each Sim that's been made can be "played".

Ummmm.... What game r u playing?! The creator of the Sim thats been asked to move in does not get to play w/them anymore. (Fun fact: whatever your sim is wearing @ the time u except a players offer of moving in, that player will get to use ALL the clothing & accessories ur sim is wearing when u excepted their offer!) What u get is ur sim retires and leaves behind an heirloom!
So, once i accept the move in request i can no longer control that sim nor contribute to her sim and other household expenses ? I thought once i accept the move in request we could be real(virtual) family ? Or nah?
