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!

I’m pretty sure you can. Once they move in they’re pretty much your sim

What if I never got a message saying that they agreed to let the sim move in? Does that mean they said no or they just didn’t get it
And also on my previous post it won’t let me marry the other sim to

I am at level 10 with a sim, I married them, they don’t belong to anyone else (no blue thing above the head), I have a free sim slot, and the ask to move in option still does not appear. Do I need to wait a certain amount of time after marriage, or is there another problem?

The sim that i want to move in player has not been online in 98 days. How can i get her to see my move in request?
Okay on my sims mobile game my sims is in a relation ship with another players sims they are at level 10 lover and I can’t move him in why ?
Does the sim you send the "move-in" request need to have all traits completed before that sim can move?
I sent a “move-in” request, unfortunately the player who owns that sim were unable to move his sim out for me. He hit the “move my sim” tab but an error message popped up “failed to move out your sim”. Why did this happed and how to avoid it?
Reached level 10 with a sim (who's an elder and doesn't belong to anyone, She doesnt have the blue thing above her head) and the ask to move in option isn't there??

If it he/she does not have a blue plumblob over his/her head, he/she does not belong to another player. This means that you have to marry this sim before you move them in.
