If efficiency is a top priority to you, we recommend choosing a location nearby Resident Services.
You will need to visit this facility a lot to sell items or old furniture, as well as buy new equipment, so having this facility in a nearby spot where you can quickly go to get what you need will save you a lot of time in the long run.
If you are planning to play Animal Crossing a lot through the online mode, maybe consider picking a spot that is close to the airport.
On top of allowing you to quickly get to the airport after starting up the game, it will also allow you to quickly go home and organize your items after returning form a friend's island.
In New Horizons, you can move your house to another location if you are unsatisfied with the placement. However, keep in mind that changing your home's location will cost 5,000 Nook Miles, so it's good to think about where you want to place your tent before setting it up.
In addition to your own tent, it's also possible to choose the placement of the other two starting villagers' tents.
In general, it's a good idea to place the two villagers' tents near each other. In general, you will want to talk to each villager once a day to check if they have anything new to say; it's convenient if they are near each other, so that you don't have to travel far to reach them.
However, it might be a good idea to avoid placing the other villagers' tents too close to Resident Services. This is simply because Resident Services cannot be moved, and it's convenient to place other facilities, such as the Museum and the Shop, nearby, so it's a good idea to save some space for those.
After placing your own tent, Tom Nook will tell you to help the other two starting residents place their tents. When you talk to them, you'll have the option to either let them place the tent where they are standing, or to choose their tent location for them.
|This looks good.||The tent will be placed in the spot they are standing|
|I'll find you a spot!||You receive the tent as an Item and can place it yourself|
|Maybe reconsider?||Nothing happens and you'll have to talk to them again|
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 cannot 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.

I wish we could ACTUALLY use Nook Miles instead of Bells. You got it wrong, apart from first loan paid off.
I have a campsite but no villager visiting in it, does it take a day after construction for someone to visit or do I need to spruce up my island?
