The Sims Freeplay- Extreme Home Takeover Quest

LEVEL UNLOCKS: 11 UNLOCKS: romantic furniture and submit houses feature TIME LIMIT: 2 days PRIZE: hot tub


This quest unlocks the ability to submit your houses for a chance for them to be added to the architect houses tab so other players can build them! Find the realtor in the park to begin this quest. If you complete in the time limit you will unlock the hot tub, you can still complete this quest once the time is up to unlock the romantic furniture and the ability to submit your houses but you won’t get the hot tub

You cannot complete this quest at the same time as any other discovery questimage

HOW LONG DOES THIS QUEST TAKE TO COMPLETE?

Times may vary depending on the star rating an item has

  • Ask Lucius about hubbub- 1 minute

image

  • Go to work at the real estate (click on the pulsing suitcase of a sim who is a real estate agent) NOTE: keep them at work so you can see the sign for the next task

image

  • Read a real estate sign- 6 hours 30 minutes (the sign will appear by the mailbox once a sim has gone to work as a real estate agent)

image

image

  • Discuss home takeover with a sim- 1 minute (select the interaction between two sims)
  • Search for well groomed sim on simbook- 9 hours (computer)

image

  • Extend or build a room
  • Have a sim take a selfie- 10 seconds (click on currently selected sim)

image

  • Post selfie on Lucius’s simbook- 6 hours

image

  • Become incensed- 2 minutes

image

  • Check fine print on a sign- 12 hours 30 minutes (the sign will appear by the mailbox once a sim has gone to work as a real estate agent again)

image

  • Buy an item from the home store
  • Submit house via sign (you don’t even need to submit at this stage, just click on the sign then click the green arrow to complete the task, if you don’t do it now you can submit a house later- make sure a sim is at work as a real estate agent first so you can see the sign)

QUEST IS COMPLETE!


Submit your home for a chance for it to be featured in the architect tab so anyone who plays can build your house! Click here for more information on this feature

Prize: Hot Tub

image

Where can it be found? In the outdoor furniture section

Cost? S65,000

Is the prize worth it? This quest is really easy to complete in the time limit, as long as you have a sim to go to work as a real estate agent when you need to click on the sign! The hot tub is fairly expensive but I do think it is worth completing in time to unlock it!


If you don’t complete in the time limit you will still receive the romantic beds, seats and fairy lights:

image

Beds can be found in the bedroom section and cost S17,500 each

Fairy lights can be found in the lighting section and cost S21,000

Romantic seats can be found in the outdoor furniture section and cost S15,00 each

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS QUEST

please read before asking

How do I start this discovery quest?
Find the real estate developer in the park to start this quest

Why can’t I do this discovery quest yet?

Can I do discovery quests at the same time as a main quest?
Yes you can

Do I have to do this quest?
If you don’t start the quest you don’t have to do it at all but if you have already started it you need to complete it before you can move on to the next quest

I haven’t started this quest yet, will it still be available when I want to do it?

I can’t see the sign to read it, why?
You need to send your sim to work as a real estate agent to see the sign in front of your houses

I can’t find Lucius to become incensed, where is he?
He should appear at the house you are currently at, if not try looking around simtown for him

What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
The hot tub

Why can I only get one sim using the hot tub at a time?
If the hot tub is against a wall or has items around it they will not be able to access all sides to get in

The hot tub prize isn’t free, it will cost you S65,000

What happens if I don’t complete in the time limit, can I still finish this 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 now that you have started it, if you don’t start it you don’t have to do it

How do I submit my house?
This post explains how to do this in detail

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. I think I misunderstood the event blip & said “no” to submitting my house at that time, as I thought that I could submit later, but it seems I missed the boat. Is there a way to still submit, or was that a one time chance? Thanks in advance ❤

  2. I am so happy with your blog about sims updates…helps me a lot on my game 🙂 I hope you don’t mind me asking, the urban furniture event has just started. May I ask how many sims you put to work to beat the quest deadline? Thank you!

  3. Hey! I am wondering why the content is missing from the examples of the new architect style homes. When I click a new house lot and go to choose one of these, all five are blank. I completed the extreme home takeover quest and I thought that would unlock these new home styles. Any suggestions? Thanks for your blog! Love it!

  4. Interesting…..I have 10 hours and 45 mins left in the quest and I’m on the last assignment: submitting the house. BUT for some reason none of my realtors can go to work! Is it because I’m too the quest? Have to wait until morning maybe? Weird!

  5. Thanks for this…you’re really a big help. I know now that I don’t need to use LP to make it on time. And just wanted to say that I completed the island because of your tip 😊 thank you again.

  6. Hi, I do not have this extreme home takeover quest on my iOS game app. Is there any pre-requisite in order for quest to appear?

    • Have you got the latest version of the game? If so, you will find the real estate developer in the park. You don’t have to complete another quest before this one apart from the ocean view estate quest I believe but you cannot complete another discovery quest at the same time as this one.

      • Thank you for your reply. Yes I’m on another discovery quest at the moment. Will this extreme home takeover appear again for me to complete next time? 😃

  7. Hi, finished the quest, have all the furniture except the hot tub. Checked outdoors furniture, restarted my iPad, it’s just not there. What can I do? Where else could it be?

  8. Since this is a discovery quest, can we wait to start it after the urban furniture quest and still have the full time?

    Btw, thank you for this blog! You are so helpful!

  9. Its telling me to build promotions r us. It been built forever. Idk what to do, I am not getting credit for doing woodworking. Ugh

  10. Do you have any idea why does it take SO LONG just to read because I am pretty confused about that.I love your blog so much it is really helpful because if someone wants to do a quest they should go to your blogs and see if they have everything.😘Thanks

  11. I tried posting a comment on your urban furniture event post but i couldn’t? I hope its okay I put my comment here. I added a 24 hr time extension and its only been maximum 12 hours which means i should still have atleast another 10 but when i opened the game it told me it had ended and if i wanted to put a time extension and I only had one left (i had 2 before) i read your comment on the other people about emailing EA but can you tell me how please?

  12. Hi dear, first of all thank you very much for your blog, it’s awesome. I wanted to ask you about the romantic seat… Is there any way for it to be used romantically? So far they can only sleep in there 😦

  13. if you make your house into an architect house does that mean you have to move out of your house? Or can you keep living in it ?

  14. Sorry for commenting this here, I couldn’t find the correct place to do so.. But I just saw one of your videos and you are incredibly beautiful! Not only that but thanks for answering those questions. You have been very helpful in my experience on the sims Freeplay-I think everyone on your blog will agree. Keep up the good work!

  15. Hello,
    I’m nearly finished this quest, I’m up to the part that I need to ‘Become Insensed’ but I can’t find Lucius. He isn’t at the park anymore

      • I completed that discovery quest. I have not had a discovery quest now in three days. I still don’t have the option to do this discovery quest

      • But when you asked that you also commented on the balcony quest saying you were stuck on the task to get them to make out which is a discovery quest.
        If you have now finished that quest and you still can’t find the realtor in the park then do you have the latest version of the game? That is only reason I can think of as to why it hasn’t appeared for you, if you do then you will need to contact EA to see if they can fix this problem for you.

      • Hi there! I did start the mission then never made it to the end within the time frame. Now I have it still pops up as a mission without a time frame. So I’m trying to complete it to get rid of it. So I’m stuck on the read the fine print step. I keep sending folks as a agent but no sign pops up!

  16. The agent is in the park but there isn’t a blip above him to start the quest. I am not doing any other quest at this time, what am I missing?

  17. I’ve been trying to do this quest for days and it’s saying I’m currently doing another quest? I know that I’m not so I don’t know what the problem is 😦

  18. Read a real estate sign- 6 hours 30 minutes (the sign will appear by the mailbox once a sim has gone to work as a real estate agent)
    There is an error I can not see it what to do ??

  19. I was once addicted to the game! I would play for hours then I got my mom and sister involved and we were all playing the sims on our phones and tablets. I decided to upgrade to the pc games and yet again got addicted! Purchased all the sims 3 and just got up to date on the sims 4! Definitely love your blog!

  20. I need help, please. I am unable to do the quest. I still have lucious (spelling) in the park but I am unable to speak with him in order to begin the quest. Whenever I click on him I get a red circle with a line through It. What am I doing wrong? Any advice is greatly appreciated! Happy Easter to you. 🙂

  21. Do you know if the architect homes that were available before the Easter architect homes be back? I really hope so cuz I REALLY wanted them but I missed out!!

  22. I am UNABLE to “become incensed with Lucius”!!! I return to the park where he originally was BUT HE IS NOWHERE TO BE FOUND!!!!!!!! WHAT AM I DOING WRONG???????

  24. 1. you are awesome, i just started playing and this blog has been so helpless. you’re amazing, thank you so much.
    2. i just started this quest. realized i already have the hot tub from the spa special event. so! no rush to complete. just thought that might be worth updating on this post.
    3. thank you, again, for keeping this blog running!

    • Thanks and you’re welcome!
      That is a good point but I don’t want to confuse those who start playing in a future update because they will be asking me how to do the spa event and they will be unable to

  25. I started this quest accidentally but can’t seem to find Lucius in the park! I’ve been stuck for a long time so can’t complete this quest or move onto any new it’s. Any help would be much appreciated!

  26. I don’t understand this, how did u do it? I completed the home takover quest ages ago and have checked every single tab in my home store but I still can’t find a hot tub!!!!

  27. I completed the quest but i doidnt have the hot tub for free.the hot tub appears on my home stre but its not free.

  28. If I start 2pm, will it then fit? I was wondering, ’cause then the 9h 30m quest could be done over the night. I’m also a bit worried, ’cause I don’t think I can make it in time… (I know the frequently asked questions)

    • Well it depends what time you get up, you will have to work this out for yourself unfortunately. I couldn’t really tell you what time to start as everyone has different schedules so what works for me may not work for you.

  29. Can you submit houses made on the Island or is it only for houses on the main part of the town?
    * The house I’m wondering about isn’t a boat, but an actual house just to clarify. *

  30. I finished the quest and submited my house design. I look at the featured houses and they are pretty pricey lol does the play that designed the houses get simoleons if someone buys their design

  31. Hi! Just wanted to thank you for taking the time to write this blog. I find it very helpful and when one of my friends gets stumped playing the sims I always just tell them, “ask the girl who games!”

  32. Hey I haven’t done the quest and I still had architect houses I wanted to buy one but its disappeared what should I do?

  33. Hi- First, great blog! Second, how do I get the real estate agent to stay at work and how do I get them to read the sign? I see the sign after I send them to work, but I can’t do anything with it. Thanks!
