If you cannot wait to get your hands on The Sims 4 For Rent to start playing right away, dive in with these prebuilt multi-family homes that are mostly furnished and ready to go!
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!

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.Click here to download!
Willow Creek Duplex
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.Click here to download!
1 Bakery, 2 Households
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.Click here to download!
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.Click here to download!
There are 6 apartments between these two buildings, with units of varying sizes so you can find the perfect home. The place is only partially furnished and has seen better days, but it’s brimming with charm and still has plenty of years left in it. Pick the ideal unit and enjoy your new home!Click here to download!
Residencial Nova Iorquino
Two spacious Brownstones offering 3 floors of living space with multiple units, lots of room for entertaining, and a nice large backyard perfect for block parties.

Water Tower Way Duplex
This cozy duplex is fully furnished and brimming with personality. Each side has a large living room, kitchen, 1.5 bathrooms, and a large bedroom making up most of the upper floor. The hodgepodge nature of each apartment makes the space feel comfy, lived-in, and well-loved.Click here to download!
Eco Twin Houses
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.Click here to download!
The Pastel Ladies
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!Click here to download!
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!Click here to download!
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.Click here to download!
Glamorous City Living
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.Click here to download!
Currently serving as temporary rentals, these funky homes will easily convert to Residential Rentals. Each house is different than the next, with unique floor plans, layouts, and color schemes. They are brimming with personality and any sim would be happy to live here!Click here to download!
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.Click here to download!
7 Eucalyptus Lane
A row of 5 pretty & petite houses in a rainbow of colors, fully furnished and unique from one another.

Each one is furnished differently from the others, so your sims can move into their favorite unit!Click here to download!
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.Click here to download!
This apartment building has 4 identical units with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, & a small balcony each. It’s a very cozy place for sims who don’t need a lot of extra space.Click here to download!

Upland Place Dingbats Apartment
“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!Click here to download!
