The Sims 2 lot size and price

I had this list in my computer since years ago, I did not considered useful but in June 2012 I noticed that a visitor landing on my website by searching “lot prices in sims 2“, so I posted the list of lot prices on website.

The cost of land in The Sims 2 is pretty crazy and does not follow a standard formula of price per square meter or feet.

1×1 – not available ($-400 downloaded)
1×2 – not available ($300 downloaded)
1×3 – $1.000 – Nightlife and newer ($900 downloaded)
1×4 – not available ($1.600 downloaded)
1×5 – not available ($2.200 downloaded)
1×6 – not available ($2.900 downloaded)
2×2 – $1.600 – Nightlife and newer
2×3 – $2.900 – Base game
2×4 – $4.200 – Nightlife and newer
2×5 – $5.500 – Nightlife and newer
2×6 – not available ($2.900 downloaded)
3×3 – $4.800 – Base game
3×4 – $6.800 – Base game
3×5 – $8.800 – Base game
3×6 – not available
4×4 – $9.400 – Base game
4×5 – $12.000 – Base game
4×6 – not available
5×5 – $15.200 – Base game
5×6 – $18.500 – Nightlife and newer

Prices of lots In The Sims 3 are standardized, $2 per square meter. The lots can have any size, no longer need to be multiply of 10. The largest lot available (64 x 64 squares) is $8192.

This is ridiculously cheap land, making land price max 10% of the lot price with house built up. In reality, no house is 10 times more expensive than the land where it sits. For realism, they shall make prices about $10 per square meter, a starter family with $20.000 could afford a 20×30 lot and will remain $14.000 to build the house, which is enough… and move to a larger lot when they are rich enough to build a palace.
