Now that you've bought your property, it's time to decide on a category. Keep in mind that you may already own objects that can't be used in the new category, you will lose any visitor hours you have acquired thus far and you can't change to another category for 7 days.
Here is a breakdown of all the available property categories and the special objects that can only be used in them:
How to Switch Categories
Changing your property category is pretty straight forward and simple. First you will need to make sure that your property is empty or closed for at least one minute. If you are on your property, now is the time for you and your roommates to exit. If you still have visitors after you and your roommates have left, they will be ejected from the property in a few moments.
Next click on where the no category symbol is in your Property Page, the circle with a line through it (or if you are switching from another category, the old category). A menu listing the different categories will pop up. You can click on each one and read a bit more about it. Be sure to take note of the different tuning and benefits of each property category before making a final selection.
Property Categories Menu
Upon clicking a property category icon, a confirmation window will pop up. Once you are sure that the category you have selected is the one you want (remember you cannot change again for 7 days!) click yes. If you aren't sure, then alternatively click no.
Confirm Property Category Change
Congratulations, you have now changed your property's category. All tuning and benefit changes will take effect immediately. Remember, if a property category does not work out for you, you can change it again after a week.
