Prebuilt Multi-Family Homes

Earlier today SimGuruNova shared an exciting new post to Twitter/X:

This is great news for players of The Sims 4 who have already begun creating/collecting builds in anticipation of The Sims 4 For Rent releasing in just under a month and while we don’t know yet how exactly the game is going to have us differentiate multiple Residential Rental units, if it’s as easy as SimGuruNova says it will be we should have no problem launching into the new mechanics immediately!

If you want to start using Residential Rentals immediately without having to build or download any on your own, check out our list of great builds to get started!

Opposites-Attract Duplex

Opposites-Attract Duplex by LittleBearSims

One half of this duplex is adorably furnished with a modern-cute aesthetic, while the other half is a barely habitable dump. Luckily it’s nothing that can’t be rescued with a little hard work, or you could just move in a sim who enjoys living in squalor.

Willow Creek Duplex

Willow Creek Duplex by WyattDoBeDrippin

This barely-furnished duplex is cool because each unit is not only a different style, but a different size as well. It gives you flexibility in deciding exactly what kind of apartments you want here, with plenty of room to renovate as you see fit. Each side has gorgeous old wood floors, large rooms, and a decent sized backyard.

1 Bakery, 2 Households

1 Bakery, 2 Households by Thornheartssims

This building has gone through a lot of changes in its lifetime, starting as one large house and eventually being divided into 2 separate living units along with a small bakery. It doesn’t seem that the new lots can be combination Residential & Retail, but you could easily convert it with one of the new Home Chef Hustle stands, get clever with other food stalls, or turn the bakery into something completely different. The only limit is your imagination.

Copperdale Duplex

Copperdale Duplex by AnetaBlake

One half of this duplex is fully furnished and move-in ready, while the other half…needs a little help. Theoretically both sides can be occupied, but you better hope that whoever moves into the less desirable unit is either a total slob or the kind of sim who likes a fixer-upper. Move your sim into the cruddy side and use the neighbor’s rent to make upgrades, or just demo the whole apartment and start from scratch.

Honeydew Houses

Eco Twin Houses by Eldircora

Two interesting-looking offset units containing 3 bedrooms each, a small backyard, driveway, and plenty of furnishings. If you want to elevate the eco-friendliness of these homes, feel free to slap some solar panels on the roof and save a few simoleons on the utility bill.

The Pastel Ladies

The Pastel Ladies by Harlequin Eyes

This build was created by SnootySims writer Nicole! I built this duplex several years ago inspired by a home I’ve driven by in my own town. The sides are mirrored, each containing 1-2 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, multiple porches, and a small backyard. I furnished this duplex as if it were occupied by 2 elderly sisters with very different personalities, but you can make it whatever you want it to be. I hope you like it!

StrangerVille Stack

StrangerVille Stack by MardyYardy

This collection of apartments has seen a lot over the past 85 years, and while it’s slated to be demolished there are renters who just don’t want to leave. The unique shape of this building contains multiple units that just need a little love and a lot of elbow grease and before you know it, they’ll be ready to invite new tenants and collect more stories within their aged walls!

Suburban Townhomes

Suburban Townhouses by livyx23

These townhouses may look the same, but once you look inside you can see that they’re quite different! One unit has 2 bedrooms/2 bathrooms, one unit has 3 bedrooms/3.5 bathrooms, and one unit manages to fit 4 bedrooms/2 bathrooms into the space. All are fully furnished and ready for whatever family’s story you want to tell.

Glamorous City Living

Glamorous City Living by AlJay2000

This building is a sneaky one! There are 2 units in the narrow building on the end, while the other brownstones are decorative. You can choose to keep it that way or remove the other facades and replace them with more units, yard space, or a combination of the two. It’s a cool lot to play if you like the idea of multiple units but don’t want to commit to that many at once.

Vacation Apartments

Tudor Townhouses

Tudor Townhomes by shansimia

What this building lacks in furnishings it makes up for in stateliness. Each unit has the basic bathroom and kitchen furnishings, but the unit really shines on the exterior. The covered entryways help make each apartment feel like its own house, a good choice for sims who are a bit more private. Each comes with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a small patio space in the front & rear.

7 Eucalyptus Lane

7 Eucalyptus Lane by buildsbybee

A row of 5 pretty & petite houses in a rainbow of colors, fully furnished and unique from one another. Don’t let their narrow facades fool you, these houses have more room than you’d think and they’re stuffed to the gills with furniture & decor. Each one is furnished differently from the others, so your sims can move into their favorite unit!

Starter Apartments

Starter Apartments by JamesTurnerYT

This run-down building has a single dilapidated unit with space to build at least 3 others, more if you renovate and add another floor. Due to its neglected state, it’s an inexpensive building to start with if your sim is making their first foray into property ownership. Add new units as you can afford to, putting the rent from them towards more units or apartment upgrades.

Upland Place Dingbats Apartment

Upland Place Dingbats by Peacemaker_IC

“Dingbats” are an interesting style of apartment common in the Los Angeles area as well as other parts of the American Sun Belt. Recognized for their mid-century silhouettes and somewhat run-down appearance, they’re known to be boxy, quirky, and affordable buildings that give off “motel” vibes.

This apartment building comes with 4 units, 1 of which is furnished and ready to move in. Stylish and somewhat kitschy, it’s a great building to move in a cast of eclectic and colorful characters!

I've been playing The Sims since the first game launched way back in 2000 and have been using CC for over 20 years. As a creative person with an interest in design, The Sims games have always been a great outlet for me whether I'm creating a cool sim, trying a new build style, or dabbling in CC making. The Sims really is a wonderful medium for all sorts of creative outlets and I'm happy to share my enthusiasm with other like-minded players!
