That’s where Sims 4’s free real estate cheat can come in really darn handy. So, let’s talk you through how to use it.

What Does the Free Real Estate Cheat Do in Sims 4?

Before we get into how to perform the Sims 4 free real estate cheat, it’s a good idea to understand what it actually entails. The enhancement allows Simmers to move into any house for free, regardless of how many Simoleons they have.

Without the cheat, many houses will produce a red-colored Simoleon price, forbidding you from completing the move. However, once you’ve turned on The Sims 4 free housing cheat, the move button will now be available, and the prices will appear green.

It saves a bunch of time for you so that you don’t have to go into the household, use Motherlode or Kaching cheats, and then move your family out and into another home.

How to Do Free Real Estate Cheat in Sims 4

First, as always with cheats, you’re going to want to hit Shift+Ctrl+C and enter ‘testingcheats on’ without any apostrophes to activate the cheats. Then, you’re going to want to type in “freerealestate on” without quotation marks. You should also move out any current residents on the property so you don’t accidentally mix in two families together.

If you are playing Sims 4 on Xbox, you’ll need to hold down LT, RT, LB, and RB simultaneously to activate cheats. For PlayStation users, press L1, E1, L2, and R2 at the same time. No matter what platform you use for gaming, you should get the “Cheats are enabled” message once the correct button combination is applied.

You should now see a message that says the Sims 4 free real estate cheat has been turned on within that same command window, permitting you to buy any house. The hack will work for other worlds, whether it be from the base game or from an expansion pack.

Go ahead and close that by either hitting Shift+Ctrl+C again or by hitting ESC. You’re all set! You can test it out to see if it’s working by selecting a more luxurious house and initiating the move (we’re looking at you, Malcolm Landgraab.) As mentioned before, the prices should appear green, indicating that the cheat was successful.

When you’re done using the cheat and are ready to disable it, open the cheat box again and type “freerealestate off” without the quotation marks again. Other than the free housing cheat, players can also utilize “bb.enablefreebuild” to customize their homes without the worry of cost. In return, you won’t reduce your family’s income and will instead unlock an infinite Simoleon intake while in Build Mode.

That’s all there is to it, though! That’s how you can get free houses using the free real estate cheat in The Sims 4. For more cheats, be sure to check out our Relationships guide or explore the relevant links below for additional content.
