The Sims 4: For Rent is the fifteenth expansion pack for The Sims 4. It was first hinted at in the official "Get Busy" roadmap,[1] and further information was leaked in a tweet[2] a week before the official trailer announcement. The pack was released on December 7th, 2023 on all platforms.

For Rent introduces residential rental houses which can be created with multiple areas to make multi-family dwellings that can be rented, bringing back customizable apartment buildings and the ability to place them in other worlds. Sims are able to become property owners, rent out their apartments to other Sims, and deal with their tenant's troubles. The expansion contains new social activities, games for children, and ways to be mischievous. It reintroduces ocean swimming, with other water related activities included in Tomarang, a new world inspired by Southeast Asia. This expansion is a spiritual successor to The Sims 2: Apartment Life.

Official description[]

Bring the neighbors together (literally) and experience multi-family lots as a tenant or property owner in The Sims™ 4 For Rent Expansion Pack. Your Sim can now own and manage multiple Residential Rental lots or move into a home where they’re closer to their neighbors than ever (perfect for snooping!). From potlucks to evictions, there’s a lot to do and a bustling new world to do it in.

KEY FEATURES:

  • The New Lot Type in Town — New Residential Rental lots give you the chance to get creative with multi-family dwellings. Give your Sims a basement suite to rent out, create a duplex to keep 2 families close, or even build apartments.
  • Property Management — Property-owner Sims can be present property managers, living among their tenants, or they can live in a separate residence while generating income from several property investments. Watch out — if property owners don’t keep their Unit Ratings high, they could face a Tenant Revolt.
  • Closer Than Ever — Closeness can create harmony — or drama! Sims in Residential Rentals will inevitably get tangled up in each other’s lives. They’ll socialize at potlucks, meet in the garden or other common areas, and have ample opportunity to discover each other’s secrets by eavesdropping, snooping, or even breaking and entering.
  • Bustling and Beautiful — Explore a new world that’s alive with possibilities. Visit the botanical garden, leave an offering at a Spirit House, and discover an animal sanctuary! One of the most iconic scenes Tomarang has to offer is the Night Market where your Sims will discover new foods and unique objects.

EARLY BIRD BONUSES:

Street Eats Digital Content — Bring night market flavor home with a grill cart, street umbrella, and fruit basket, available when you order from November 2 through January 18.

  • Quick Treats Grill
  • Streetside Stars Shade
  • Peak Freshness Fruit Basket

Apartments in a residential rental

Main article: Apartments

Players are able to make their own apartment buildings through the use of residential rentals. This new lot assignment allows for full customization, with the ability to choose the sizes of units that can be rented by families to allow multiple families to live on the same lot. Any lot can be turned into a residential rental, allowing for the use of living in apartments outside of San Myshuno[TS4:CL] and Evergreen Harbor.[TS4:EL]

Property ownership[]

EP15 Promo 1

Property owner asking for rent in a communal area

Main articles: Landlord and Residential rental

Sims can have a business of purchasing and renovating multiple residential rentals to rent out to other Sims. By doing so, Sims become a landlord and can look out for the needs of their tenants. This includes fixing broken objects, cleaning the apartment building or dealing with mold and insect infestations.

Close living[]

Living close together allows Sims to participate in new social events, such as potlucks and pool parties. There is also an element of secrecy in that Sims living in apartments can eavesdrop on conversations, snoop around Sims, and break into other units in order to find out their secrets, which they could potentially use as blackmail material for money.
