Can I Move My House in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

Can I Move my House in Animal Crossing?

As any regular Animal Crossing player knows, there are a few perks to being mayor. You can upgrade your house and make it as big as you want. In Animal Crossing, your house is your sanctuary. It’s where you can relax and store your valuables.

Inevitably, as time goes on, there comes the point where we tire of our house and want to change things up. However, it’s a big risk because you lose your house if things don’t go as planned!

How to Move Your House in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

While you won’t move your house in Animal Crossing: New Horizons until a few days into the game, it’s something you’ll want to do.

Once you have access to the Resident Services building, you can speak to Tom Nook and request to move your house. He’ll give you a couple of options, but we’ll focus on moving your house to a different location on your island for this guide.

Step 1: Find the Resident Services tent.

Step 2: Talk to Tom Nook

Step 3: Select “About My Home

Step 4: Select “Can I move my home?”

Step 5: Select “Yes”

Step 6: Select a location for your new home.

Step 7: Pay off your Loan and wait for the moving truck to arrive.

Step 8: You’ll have to pay a cool 30,000 Bells to make it happen (you can take out a loan from Tom Nook if you don’t have enough)

Get Bells in Animals Crossing: New Horizons

Bells, the currency in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, is pretty important. You’ll need them to buy furniture, clothes and other goodies. In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you can earn bells by doing plenty of things, but to earn bells quickly, it’s best to sell things.

There’s plenty to trade in your deserted island town and surrounding areas. Here are some quick ways to earn bells:

  • Sell fruit: Drop off any excess fruit at the Resident Services drop-off box. You’ll get 100 bells per piece of fruit.
  • Sell fish and bugs: Unload any excess fish and bugs by donating them to the museum or selling them to Timmy and Tommy in their shop, Nook’s Cranny. You’ll get between 60 and 15,000 bells for each item, depending on the rarity of the bug or fish.
  • Plant a money tree: You can dig up buried bells and plant them in a new spot to create a money tree, which will randomly give you 300 to 10,000 bells every three days when it bears fruit.
  • Find a balloon with bells attached: Balloons with bells appear randomly over your island once every few days. Use your slingshot to shoot them down, then collect the attached bells. There are usually around 500-1,000 bells on each balloon.


Q. What Happens to Your House While You Move?

Your house will be transported to a temporary location while you move. It’s in the north end of town, next to Resident Services. A blue construction tent with a sign saying “Construction Site” will appear on your island when it’s done moving your house. You can find it at that location until the moving process is complete.

Q. Are There Any Cheats for Animal Crossing?

There are no cheats for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. However, there are ways to make money in the game by selling certain items and materials to Timmy or Tommy at Nook’s Cranny. Some of the best things to sell include gold nuggets (1,500 bells each), rare insects like moths (2,500 bells) and scorpions (8,000 bells) and rare fish like tuna (7,000 bells).

Q. What Are Bells Used For?

Bells are one of the two types of currencies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. You can use Bells to purchase items like furniture, clothing and tools from Timmy and Tommy’s store (Nook’s Cranny), which opens after building your first bridge. Other methods for getting more bells include finding them on the beaches and selling unwanted objects on the market box with your friends.

Wrap Up

There’s much more to consider in this game than where you live, like the map and where you are in the world’s backdrop. You can move your house up to a point.

It will not allow you to move your home off of its foundation or anywhere outside of Pelly or Phyllis’ rental services. Animal Crossing remains a game with no real clear cut goal. Most of what you do is pretty open-ended. That being said, we come to the end of this post on “Can I Move my House in Animal Crossing?” Hope you found it very informative.
