A Few Things to Keep in Mind

While the Free Real Estate cheat is a fantastic way to get your Sims into their dream homes without breaking the bank, there are a few things you should keep in mind:

  • The cheat only works on residential lots, so you won’t be able to snag that swanky nightclub or trendy café for free.
  • If you want to turn off the Free Real Estate cheat, open the cheat console and type “FreeRealEstate off” (without the quotes), then press Enter.

Using cheats may affect your gameplay experience or interfere with game challenges and achievements. Disable them before playing if you want to enjoy a pure, cheat-free experience.
