I like so many of ya'll really put a lot of effort into housing and find the limitations very frustrating to say the least. This is the last official word about housing that I have seen. I know it's not much but at least they gave some answer.

Q32: I don't know who to ask specifically, but why hasn't housing been seriously revamped? People with inactive subscriptions take up almost entire neighborhoods, the worst problem is that you have to pay rather high rent for years, which is OK if you are a hardcore gamer, but many if not most of us are casual so it adds up....and the hooks are an issue, at least add more to the houses. They look great at least, but they've been needing some work since the beginning. - Stephanie Coughran Alexander
A: Housing is an interesting topic around here. It is another one of those things that we talk about. We sometimes have to make hard choices about priorities… (But we do talk about this one a lot!) - Linda “LLena” Currie, Design Director
