The Sims Freeplay- Houses Guide (Part One)

You can buy several different houses in the sims freeplay.  In this guide I will rate each house and give my opinion so you can see if it is worth buying!

The price and time it takes to build a house increases with every house purchased so when you get further into the game it takes a lot longer to save up for big houses and I usually get impatient waiting for it to complete the building! Also a lot of the houses cost LPs but are they really worth it? You will find out in this guide!

In this part I will be talking about the following houses:

  • Unfurnished Studio (s+p)
  • Furnished Townhouse (s+p)
  • One Bedroom Home (s+p)
  • Mansion (s+p)
  • Empty Lot (s+p)
  • The Sanctuary (s+p)
  • Dark Secret (s+p)
  • Skater’s Dream Pad (s+p)
  • Medieval Castle (s+p)
  • Designer Home (s+p)
  • Player Designed House (s+p)
  • Beachside Escape (p)

s= can be built on a standard plot

p= can be built on a premium plot

Standard or Premium?

Once you complete the real estate quest you can build houses on premium plots which are bigger.

  • Standard= 18×18
  • Premium= 36×18

NOTE: Some of the houses have been slightly modified

When I first started playing this game I got the house below free- I don’t know whether they have changed the house since then, but its a really nice sized house with some 2 star items included (this is a one story house but you could add another floor, mine is a 3 story house now)

art_19955_id_2_mw_520

Floors: One

Car: No

Unfurnished Studio- 1/5

This is the first house you can purchase, it is a lot cheaper than the others and is very basic. Its fine for when you first start the game and have no money but I have demolished all of mine and built bigger and better homes. There is no wallpaper or flooring so you are going to have to pay extra for that. (I didn’t think you needed to see a picture of this one as I’m sure this was the first house that everyone built!) (this is a one story house but you could add another floor)

Cost: Simoleons, depends on how many other houses you have built so far

Floors: One

Car: No

Premium Residence: Empty space

Furnished Townhouse- 1/5

furnishedtownhouse

Slightly more expensive, still quite basic but at least it has wallpaper and flooring! Again its okay when you first start the game and its a nice sized house- apart from the kitchen is really small! (this is a one story house but you could add another floor)

Cost: Simoleons, depends on how many other houses you have built so far

Floors: One

Car: No

Premium Residence: Empty space

One Bedroom Home- 3/5

familyhouse

This is a really nice sized house, perfect for 2 people, you could even expand it to add another bedroom at the back of the house. I like that the décor is quite traditional and looks like it would be a house for an older couple. There are mostly 2 star items in this house which means you can accomplish tasks quicker than the previous 2 houses. (this is a one story house but you could add another floor)

Cost: Simoleons, depends on how many other houses you have built so far

Floors: One

Car: Red Sedan- 1 star car

Premium Residence: Empty space

Mansion- 4/5
image

This is a 2 bedroom house with 2 bathrooms and an office- you also get a car with this house! Most of the items in this house are 3 stars so you can complete tasks really quickly! (this is a one story house)

I have edited this one making the spare room smaller and putting in 2 single beds and a room for the fashion studio.

Cost: Simoleons, depends on how many other houses you have built so far

Floors: One

Car: Luxury- 3 star car

Premium Residence: Empty space

Empty Lot- 5/5

Make of it what you will- you have a blank canvas to create an amazing house, this plot is cheaper than the other houses because you are going to spend alot of money making your own house!  I really like empty plots- I buy a lot of them as  I like creating my own houses but for this you do have to save up your money!

The Sanctuary- 2.5/5

image

image

premium garden

This house consists of two tiny rooms that aren’t connected, you have a bedroom/living room area and a bathroom. For a house that costs LPs I don’t think you get a lot for your money because it is filled with the cheapest 1 star items. It doesn’t even have some essential items! (this is a one story house, it would be difficult to add another floor)

My Edited Sanctuary

My Edited Sanctuary

I have edited my sanctuary to make it much better, it now has 4 separate rooms: a bedroom, a kitchen, a bathroom and a living room- so now the owner has everything he needs. With mostly 2 or 3 star items and a really nice garden (I would rate my own sanctuary about 4/5 now!)

Cost: Standard 13LPs, Premium 24LPs

Floors: One

Car: No

Premium Residence: Lots of trees, work really well for this house

Dark Secret-1/5

8Qkwb

image

premium garden

This is probably the worst house you can buy, its very white, plain, creepy and looks like some sort of prison! It really isn’t worth spending your LPs on this! (this is a one story house, you could add a second floor maybe with a different colour scheme)

Cost: Standard 14LPs, Premium 26LPs

Floors: One

Car: No

Premium Residence: Trees

Skater’s Dream Pad- 4/5
image

image

premium garden

One of my favourite houses, I really like this house- mainly because there is a skateboard ramp in the garden! I think you get what you pay for with this house, it also costs LPs but you can tell that by looking at it- there are a lot of expensive items in this house (3 star items) and if you are on the lower levels you get some items that haven’t been unlocked in buy mode yet! (this is a one story house but you could add another floor)

My house is now empty but it used to have a family of 4 living in it but was a bit overcrowded (they now live in the player designed house) it’s a shame it’s unused but 4 people was just too many- this house will be perfect for a single man or a young couple.

Cost: Standard 28LPs, Premium 32LPs

Floors: One

Car: No

Premium Residence: Trees

Medieval Castle- 3.5/5
image

image

premium garden

This is a one bedroom castle styled house- I think it works really well. It is an interesting shape and it does look like an castle, apart from lighting, the kitchen and bathroom appliances it is a traditional house, there is no tv but a chess set for entertainment. I think they should have created a fridge and oven that fits the theme. (this is a one story house but stairs could easily be added)

And your sims that live in this house can wear costumes to match!

Cost: Standard 21LPs, Premium 25LPs

Floors: One

Car: No

Premium Residence: Trees

Designer Home- 3/5
image

image

premium garden

This is a one story house but you could easily add a second floor, I don’t think its the most exciting house available in the game, and okay there are plenty of 3 star items in the house but does that really make it designer?
I will definitely be changing the wallpaper and flooring in the kitchen and living room to make it look more what I would consider designer. I really like the entrance way into the house, although I think the front door should come through into the living room, not the kitchen.

Cost: Standard 32LPs, Premium 43LPs

Floors: One

Car: No

Premium Residence: Seating area, garden decorations

Player Designed House- 4/5
image

image

premium garden

Another really nice house! This is a 2 bedroom house, the girls bedroom is my favourite room in this house because it is so pretty 🙂 Its definitely worth the money! There is an entertainment room and a study with 3 star computers. The only thing I don’t like is the placing of the bathroom at the front of the house, this means there is no door at the front- you have to go around the side to the kitchen. This is a one story house.

I have turned this into a 2 story house though because I can’t stop changing things I wanted more garden space and a bigger nursery/play area, so I have moved the nursery and girls bedroom upstairs, the living room is now where the girls bedroom was and I made the room which was the living room smaller and turned that into a dining room so I could fit a swing outside.

Cost: Standard 44LPs, Premium 49LPs

Floors: One

Car: No

Premium Residence: Trees

Beachside Escape- 2/5
image

image

This is only available on the premium residence (the ones next to the beach) if you completed the ocean view quest in the time limit.

I don’t really like the front part of the house, I think it all should have a beach theme to it. It just looks like they thought ‘oh we need to actually make this look like its a holiday house for the beach- lets add a small cabin style thing to the end of the garden’ Its a bit weird. Although it does have a lot of 3 star products in the house and the garden area is really nice. This is a one story house.

Cost: Simoleons, depends on how many other houses you have built so far

Floors: One

Car: Luxury- 3 star car

NOTE: can only be built if you completed the ocean view quest in the time limit

I hope this has somewhat helped you decide what house to buy next
