How to Increase Your Unit Rating in The Sims 4: For Rent

To raise your unit rating in The Sims 4: For Rent, you’ll want to use high-quality furniture throughout your home, have multiple rooms for your tenants, and check that your appliances and electronics are fully functioning. Any issues, like mold growth, broken furniture, or rule-breaking tenants can all influence your unit rating, causing it to increase or decrease, depending on how you manage it.

When raising your unit to a five-star rating, your goal is to have a high-quality, comfortable space for your tenants to sleep, eat, and tend to their daily needs with zero issues. If they only have one or two rooms to accomplish this in, your unit rating will be low. Similarly, if the unit’s furniture is cheap or broken, you’ll have a lower unit rating until you upgrade it.

In other words, don’t be afraid to spend extra money to get your tenants a fancy couch or fridge. They’ll appreciate it more than you can imagine.

Likewise, neglecting your unit or making massive changes, such as selling items or removing a room, can significantly decrease your unit rating. On the flip side, adding or upgrading rooms can have a large, positive effect.

Another aspect that influences your unit rating is your outdoor decor. If your unit’s outdoor areas are furnished and decorated, your unit rating will rise to reflect this. If it’s littered with trash, your rating will decrease.
