The Ghost Hunting Hobby post can be found here

Prize: Haunted House

Is the prize worth it? Yes it really is, its a cool house with lots of haunted items already in it, if you count up the amount of items that cost LPs in the house, buying this house is cheaper than making a similar one yourself!

Costs: Now the first one is free then after that it costs simoleons, price varies on the amount of houses you already have built

Thanks for reading!

Please note this quest was correct at the time of writing, it may change.


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS QUEST

please read before asking

I have missed this quest! Why can’t I start it yet?
You cannot miss main quests they have to be completed in order. You need to complete all previous quests (list can be found here) and reach level 22 before you can start this quest

Can I complete this quest even though I am passed level 22?
Yes, you just need to complete all previous quests then this quest will start automatically

Why are there two versions of this quest?
Some quests have two versions, as when the makers have updated the times for quests they haven’t updated them on all devices so some players still get the old times

How do I send my sim to the park?
Go to the park and click on the whistle next to a sim who isn’t busy on the simtracker, this post explains more about the simtracker

Why do blue footprints appear when I try to use an item?
Blue footprints appear when your sim cannot access an item you want them to use, you need to either rotate the item or move an item that has been placed in front of it so they can use it

What do you mean when you say a goal can be started early?
Any goal that you can normally do can be started early because you will have access to it and any goal that you can’t normally do you will have to wait until you get the goal to be able to complete it
The tip with this method is to put the sim doing that action early in a different house that you cannot go to until you get that goal or it will not work

What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
The haunted house

What happens if I don’t complete in the time limit, can I still finish this quest?
Yes you have to finish it to unlock the ghost hunting hobby before you can move onto the next quest

I didn’t complete in the time limit, can I restart the quest?
No, you cannot redo quests

Can I still get the prize if I don’t complete in the time limit?
No, the only way to get the limited time prizes is by completing the quest in the time limit

I don’t like this quest! Can I just skip it?
No, you have to complete this quest before you can move onto the next one

Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?
Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using, as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal

Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?

This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post

  1. Hi Hun,
    I just got the latest update with balconies etc (finally!) and I noticed that the haunted house now cost simoloens, real bummer as for me its gonna cost over 580,000 😵.

    Just thought I’d pop by and mention it in case you hadn’t noticed.

  2. In the picture, it showed the house as in a spooky gray dismal area, but my neighbor has the house on an ocean view residence and it has a regular area. So if I build it on the island, is it going to have a creepy background or the normal one because I want the creepy one.

  3. The DIY update happened while I was doing this quest, so maybe the update changed this: I had to pay 1.6 million simoleans for my Haunted Mansion, instead of LPs. Just FYI.

  4. Hi there! You have such an awesome site, and I thank you for helping me through this game! Just thought I’d let you all know that I’ve just completed the ghost hunters quest and the haunted house cost me $135000 simoleons. I have 10 houses. The house is awesome!

  5. I want to buy the haunted house. Is the house different if you buy the Oceanview option or the same, but just have larger rooms? Thanks!

  6. why i dont have select option to buid haunted house?

  7. Thank u! U have been very helpful thru my game experience

  8. I completed the quest with 2 days to go, yet the house isn’t free? Or is that how it is suppose to be?

  9. Still can not visit friends for social tasks! So frustrated. Love your blog and the help. If you use a 3 star toilet to complain too it takes 5 hours. Can you read the book early?

  10. Hi! Im having a problem on read fine lecture part….. I clicked on a 3 star bookshelf and there wasnt any read fine lectures…..

  11. So I’m level 23 and on my quest queue I don’t have the g.h quest, however I do have the seniors quest on the queue. Have I lost my chance to do the quest or something? I’m still a few quests away from the senior one, so do you think it might pop up eventually or it’s definitely not coming? idk. ty.

  12. hey can you please update this quest?

  13. Hi, I had the hobby before the “major update” from 2 halloweens ago. So is there a chance that I could get this house ? I love your blog by the way! It has helped me complete my goals in time and has been very helpful because I stopped playing for a 1 1/2 and came back.

    • At this moment no but sometimes they do make it possible to get limited prizes you weren’t able to unlock, I like you didn’t get the haunted house because when this first came out we had to complete the hobby, there was no quest but for the sims 3rd birthday everyone got one of the limited prizes they didn’t win and I got the haunted house so you never know! 🙂 Thanks, I’m glad it helps!

  15. Hi! First of all, I really love your blog ^^ It’s been extremely helpful to me.
    I just have one question – why are there two versions? I have a relatively old version right now, without even the camping park, and all my quests undergo the first version, which is a little annoying because I have to produce and use a lot of LPs to complete the quests on time. Thanks in advance, stay awesome 🙂

  16. hello! I completed this quest a few days back and I got one Haunted House for free, just thought I should let you know x
    I absolutely love your blog! 🙂

  17. Hello! I’m a bit confused. I’m on this quest right now, it takes 4 days to complete it on time. If I complete it within the time limit, will I get the haunted house for free? Your post says the first is free, but someone in the comment said theirs weren’t free, and you said “like it says in the post, it isn’t free”. I don’t understand.

  18. Is the first haunted house free?

  19. Once you bring 4 sims to the park and get one to hold the conference in the park, can you send the other 3 home? Or do the have to stay there the whole time?

  20. I completed the gosthunter quest a while ago, and I did not know that the first haunted house was supposed to be free partly because my first haunted house WASN’T free. I was wondering if you have any idea as to why this might be? Is it because of an update or because of the number of houses I already own? My game tells me it is 787.00 semolians…And I still haven’t built the first one. But my first ginger bread house was free, so I know it is possible. Help?

  21. I really don’t like this quest, I know you can’t do anything but I would love an option to skip it!

  22. I never had this quest show up I’m confused?

  23. Yea I have the hobby and have had it for a while now but I wanted to get the hunted house with out having to make my own I’m still hoping I can get one next month

    • It is very unlikely that that Halloween update will unlock the Haunted House but every year for the sims freeplay birthday they give you one of the time limited prizes you didn’t manage to win, last year I got the haunted house because like you I didn’t get this quest when I first started playing.

  24. On all the bookcases I have found it doesn’t have fine literature anymore!!! I remember when it did and I used it quite a bit for quests but this quest still tells me to read fine literature so I don’t think it’s an update. Instead of fine literature it says Read Epic Fantasy Trilogy or something like that. Has anyone else had this problem?

  25. About how much extra time is provided, given that all the activities are completed back to back? Just wondering so I can plan my sleep schedule around it, haha

  26. Hello. Just wondering after completing this quest and building the Haunted House does it cause lights in other houses to randomly blink? If so, is there a way to disable this? I don’t like it. I also don’t really like the house. If I demolish it will the random blinking stop? Thanks! I love your site!!

  27. Thank you.

  28. Hello,

    This is not related to a quest but in a social task I’m asked to catch a ghost in a Neighbor’s town. How do I do this task? I’ve never noticed a ghost in a Neighbor’s town before. Thanks in advance.

    • Once your neighbour has done the ghost hunter quest they will be able to put the haunted items in their house, to do this goal you need to click on a haunted item in the house and select search for ghosts then once the time has passed you click on the bubble that appears above your sims head and then a ghost will appear, click on it three times to catch it. This is how the ghost hunting hobby works.
