How to Get Unlimited Money on "The Sims 4"

Like the previous games in the series, "The Sims 4" has cheat codes for its players to enjoy. Among them are codes that grant a family more money in different intervals instantly. If you remember a money cheat code from an earlier game in the series, it works here; "The Sims 4" uses the same unlimited money codes as the three games before it.
Quick Money Cheats
Once you've loaded a game and household, you can press "Shift+Ctrl+C" to open the cheat console. Type in either "rosebud" or "kaching" and press "Enter" to quickly add 1,000 Simoleons to the total family funds. If your must-have purchase requires a little more dough, try "motherlode" instead; this code cranks the monetary reward up to 50,000 Simoleons -- halfway to reaching your Sim's fortune aspiration if he has one.
Setting a Specific Amount
If there's a certain amount of money you're interested in having, open the console, type in "testingCheatsEnabled true" and press "Enter." After this, enter "money x," replacing "x" with the amount of money the family will have. This will also work to remove unwanted funds. For example, if the family has 50,000 Simoleons, you can enter "money 25000" to immediately change the balance to 25,000 Simoleons. Alternatively, you can type in the less concise syntax "sims.modify_funds x" to add or remove a specified amount. Remember to disable testing cheats; enter "testingCheatsEnabled false" into the console before you resume the game.
Buying the Most Expensive House
You might be used to buying an empty lot, pouring counterfeit Simoleons into your nervous Sim's pocket and then sending him off to the most expensive house in the neighborhood -- but crafty thief Sims found a whole new market to scam. On the lot selection screen, enter "freeRealEstate on" in the cheat console; your Sim can move into his dream home without deducting from his bank account or your game time.
