If efficiency is a top priority to you, we recommend choosing a location nearby Resident Services.
You'll visit this facility a lot especially at the beginning to make progress, so having this facility somewhere nearby where you can quickly go to get what you need will save you a lot of time in the long run.
If you're planning to play Animal Crossing online a lot, maybe you should consider picking a spot that's closer to the airport.
This allows you to quickly get to and fro to the airport from your home!
In addition to your own tent, it's also possible to choose the placement of the other two starting villagers' tents.
It's a good idea to place the two villagers' tents near each other. Since you'll want to talk to each villager once a day to check if they have anything new to say.
It's a lot more convenient if they're near each other, so you won't have to travel too far to reach them.
It might also be a good idea to avoid placing the other villagers' tents too close to Resident Services.
|1||Upgrade Resident Services.|
|2||Tell Tom Nook that you "want to relocate."|
|3||Obtain the Moving Kit.|

You won't be able to move your house until Resident Services has been upgraded. If you haven't already upgraded Resident Services, click the button below to learn how!
Want to Relocate
Talk to Tom Nook and select
About my home... then select
I want to relocate. This will cost you 30,000 Nook Miles.
After telling Tom Nook that you want to relocate and paying 30,000 Nook Miles, you will receive the Moving Kit.
Like how you initially placed your tent, place the Moving Kit on your desired moving location.
Wait the next day and your house will be moved to your new location!
To upgrade your tiny tent into a home, you'll need to pay off your initial loan. The only way to pay this loan is by spending 5,000 Nook Miles.
Tom Nook will tell you that you can substitute your 49,800 Bell bill with this 5,000 Nook Mile fee, but keep in mind that you can't actually pay him back in Bells.
Even if you have the required number of Bells, no option to pay the required fee in Bells instead of Miles will be available, so be sure to prioritize collecting Miles in the first part of the game.
Talk to Tom Nook at the upgraded resident services and select
Let's talk about infrastructure.
The moving procedure is the same as moving your house, except it'll cost you 50,000 Nook Miles. So choose your new location carefully!
Regardless of your game settings, all players will start with a yellow, triangular tent.
Unfortunately, there is no way to change this option, so be sure to change to a much better-looking house right away!
So far, other villagers have been confirmed to have both blue and orange tents.
