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 had asked another player if their sim could move in with mine but I never got an answer. After a bit of waiting I decided to ask a non player sim but I dont even have the option. Why?

Hi! It's because only player sims can be asked to move in. If you marry a non-player sim then you can promote them (control them) if you have an empty sim slot!
@Cookie if you see this please let me move Michelle Jaramillo in. Please... I’m currently called UwU and for some reason I can’t message you.
I tried the ask to move in and was told no more available room in the household
Can I do the “ask to move in” to NPC Sims instead of other player’s Sims?

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.
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??
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?
i married one sim and aked to move-in but nevergot a reply 3months ago now i divorced and married another sim who doesnt belong to anyone but don't get a ASK TO MOVE-IN TAB WHAT DO I DO?

If you marry a townie (i.e. the sim who doesn't belong to anyone/built-in characters from the game itself) they will automatically move in to your house as soon as you get married (or at least that's what always happens to me)
I forgot to do the marriage guest but now I don't know how to get married again because it won't let me
