Sims 3 Business Buyouts (Simoleans the easy way)

Simoleans the Easy Way

“Get your money for nothing and your chicks for free”

I’ll just tell you straight out, the easiest way to make money in the sims is by buying the businesses. There are a hundred different ways to earn enough money and I’ll let you choose which one you want, but I will also give you big shove toward some of my favorites.

  1. Write Bestsellers, this takes a while but you get big simoleans
  2. Get Famous, perform and sign autographs
  3. Act Criminal – it’s dirty, but you’ll have respect AND the simoleans
  4. pull in thousands a day just for a few hours deathfishing!
  5. Literally Grow multiple high priced items with omni plants

consider yourself shoved. check out my other guides for more detailed ways to earn!


Business Buyouts:

Here are the list of businesses and how much Cash you need to Buy them out. The earlier you can buy a business in the game, the better, although I prefer having enough to fully buy them out instead of partial ownership.

business/partner cost/full owner cost/§ generated/weeks to earn back investment(s)

Diner: §6,000/§18,000 = 2,000 weekly = 8 weeks
Bookstore: §7,000/§20,000 = 2,000 weekly = 14 weeks
Grocery: §7,000/§20,000 = 2,000 weekly = 14 weeks
Bistro: §12,500/§25,000 = 4,000 weekly = 10 weeks
Day Spa: §15,000/§35,000 = 6,000 weekly = 9 weeks
Warehouse: §15,000/§35,000 = 6,000 weekly = 9 weeks
Business: §18,000/§40,000 = 6,000 weekly = 10 weeks
Theatre: §18,000/§40,000 = 6,000 weekly = 10 weeks
Hospital: §30,000/§75,000 = 12,000 weekly = 9 weeks
Stadium: §35,000/§80,000 = 13,000 weekly = 10 weeks
Science: §40,000/§100,000 = 15,000 weekly = 10 weeks

*weekly pay sometimes randomly varies by §1,000



So that’s pretty much it. Every Monday during business hours a new payment will be awaiting you at the destination you own. Simply go there and click “pick up money” and your sim will spend about 15 minutes getting your paycheck from you receptionist. How easy was that!

The drawbacks are it takes a while to earn enough, but if you buyout businesses early on, in 9-14 weeks you will begin to see FULL profit and each week you’ll keep getting rich. Don’t sit around with 100,000 or more simoleans, go ahead and buyout a business or two so you can earn your investment back for pure profit. This is NOT advised for those who choose short sim lifespans and only play a single generation. Think of it as a trust fund or retirement option for your sims children. Take over the town, rename all the businesses to your liking, and enjoy the easy life!

    Where does it say pick up Money on Sims 3 I went to the business monday morning but there is no sign or button that showing me to pick up Money. Let me know if you can help

    • wiremanart Says:

      Hi! Please read the newest post in the news section first as it may relate to your problem. Secondly make sure your sim has the deed in their inventory, only the Sim that has it can pick up the money.

    • Slimpace Says:

      Go to inventory and find the partner/owner deeds press dat then press collect money

    Hi =D
    I’d just like to know, how do you employ people? So far, my teen lives in a mansion by herself. She’s rich and has bought out the Day Spa. I’ve found someone who I want to work in my spa as nobody works in it yet. How do I employ them?

  3. Gural Says:

    Hey, just wanted to shoot you a “thanks” for posting this. I’ve been working on my sim family to get their funds up pretty high before having kids, so I turned off the aging and whatnot. They’ve done pretty well so far, so I was wondering how much the actual buy-outs are, which is where this handy list comes in.
    Great work!

    PS: My sim family? Ariel and Prince Eric. I’m hoping they have a girl with black hair, so I can stick to the storyline 😛

    • Pairot Says:

      to have a girl your pregnant sim must eat watermelon and for changing the hair color just click on any mirrors

  8. Greg101 Says:

    Just go home and sleep til the new day starts and then access the map. On your chosen business the option should be there!

  9. tman Says:

  10. Kevin Says:

    I am to understand that the profit stops after a certain amount of weeks? That makes so sense.

  11. Grace Says:
