Can You Move Houses in Animal Crossing New Horizons

So you’re curious about whether you can move houses in Animal Crossing: New Horizons? We don’t blame you. We’ve all made regrettable town planning choices in the past. Well, we have good news on that front, anyway. It is possible to move your own home in the latest Animal Crossing game, just for a price. If you want to move your home, that’s going to set you back by 30,000 Bells. To do so, you just have to speak to Tom Nook who will ask you to pay the fee before letting you pick a location for your house to be moved to. Moving will take a whole day, so when you come back the next day, you’ll see your new abode in its chosen place. 

Curious about moving the homes of other villagers? Well, the game treats this like moving infrastructure buildings which you can do.
