Talk to Tom Nook at the construction consultation counter inside Resident Services, and choose the "Sell some land" option. It will cost you 10,000 Bells so be sure to have that on hand.
After receiving the housing kit, place it outside.
The house plot is ready for someone to move in! Once someone moves in, you will receive 1,000 Nook Miles. You will be notified via mail.
After getting your 6th villager, it will be up to you to go to Tom Nook to sell some land so that villagers can move in. Since you can have a maximum of 10 villagers on your island, you will able to sell more land until you set up the last house plot.
Once you've gotten 10 villagers, you cannot sell plots of land anymore, so the second way to get more house plots is to get villagers to move out. When a villager moves out, their house will be gone, and it will become an available plot of land for someone else to move in.
Once placing the house plot, you cannot move it unless a villager has moved in. If so, you can go to Tom Nook to talk about infrastructure, and changing the island layout.
Note that you cannot move a villager's house when they are just settling in, or preparing to move out. This is when they only have cardboard boxes in their house.
Once you set up housing plots, they cannot be destroyed. You can only move the houses when villagers have moved into them.
Once placing a housing kit, a villager may randomly move in a few days. It will not be announced until the day they moved in, but you can see if someone has already reserved the plot by checking the house plot. It will be marked with a Sold sticker, and you can press A on the plot to view the new house owner.
If you do not want to wait, you can skip the time a few days until someone moves in.
If you have available house plots, animals may appear in Mystery Island Tours, where you can invite them to live on your island.
Take note that animals will not appear if you do not have vacant house plots.
If you are hunting for a villager to live on your island via Mystery Island Tour, make sure to invite someone before the new day starts, as someone may randomly move into the plot.
We recommend stacking up on Nook Miles Tickets before going on Tours.
House plots are plots of land where villagers can move in to live on your island. You can get them by placing house kits from Tom Nook. However, you cannot get any more house kits after getting your 10th villager.
Villagers may randomly move in on their own, or you can recruit via Mystery Island Tours or inviting a visitor from the Campsite.
