Get Villagers to Move Out

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.

Can You Move Housing Plots?

You Cannot Move Plots

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.

Housing Plots Cannot be Destroyed

Once you set up housing plots, they cannot be destroyed. You can only move the houses when villagers have moved into them.

When Do Villagers Move Into the Plot?

A Villager May Randomly Move In

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.

Invite a villager before the new day starts

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.
