Awesome tips about making money. Thanks to everyone who contributed. I'm going to play a new legacy by Pinstar's rules soon, so they will be very helpful. :)
Ugh finding my own husband was easier then this

I'll start off by explaining my scenario.

After my founder got married and the spouse moved in, I got about six thousand from 'gifts' and inventory junk. For some reason, the spouse's house didn't sell, or I didn't get the money from it. It's worth about 40 thousand.

Would it be against the legacy rules to use simolean (sp?) cheats to give me back this amount?

The spouse's house never sells.  You only get the gifts and whatever the spouse has in his/her personal inventory.  So, I would say using the money cheats would be against the rules.

It never sells? What do you mean?

Like, in the move-in panel, I checked the "sell house" button. Shouldn't I get money from that?  ???

You're talking about the window that comes up right after the wedding ceremony?  You choose which Sims will come live in your house (if there are more than one) and which will be the active household.  Where was the "sell house" button?

See the Sell Home button. Yay for Carl's guide for the screenie. Obviously this is for moving out, not moving a Sim in, but the left hand side is the same.

Ok, I see it.  Technically, I guess you're selling the house, but you don't get that money for it.  That box is actually grayed out, too, so it couldn't be unchecked either.  It's a little confusing, but you never get the value of the old house in your family funds.

Really? I've gotten money from the house in previous legacies.

So this means that if Sim 1 lives in a 500-thousand-simolean mansion but moves in with Sim 2 who lives in a (better) 500-simolean mansion, you lose 500-thousand Simoleans?

I found a thread from the Official Sims 3 forums with a ton of people complaining about it from three years ago. Most of them said it was a bug, and I think a few of them implied that they'd moved successfully.

http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/65842.page <--- Thread.

I don't know how valid this is since it's from three years ago.

Have to agree with Pam and say that I never got money from selling houses when spouse move in. I didn't have too many Sims move in like that, but every time I was wondering the same - Sim living in large expencive house and move in with few thousands of simoleans they had in household funds at the point of moving.
This is the first time I ever heard of that.

Whenever I have had anyone move in be it a spouse or a friend I just get a few thousand Simoleans and whatever is in their inventory. Even moving Agnus in only gives about fifteen to twenty thousand to household funds and her house and furniture would sell for quite a bit more then that.

When I moved Hal Breckenridge in in my other legacy, I got 50,000 in funds... And I doubt that he has that much money at any point in the game.

You're confusing marrying a sim with putting sims together in houses yourself. If you marry a sim that sim will bring in a certain amount of money, not the total fond of the house. The only way to get the fond of a house is when you set a sim out of your house yourself and move it in your own sims house yourself. I assume that would be against those rules as well.
And so is cheating.

In fact it is quite likely that he did had that much money - don't know about that Sim particular, but several rich households start with 50.000 or 75.000 Simoleans, even in Sunset Valley. I think that in some other worlds, some households have even more than that (in Bridgeport and Hidden Springs I think).

As a frequent game starter, I can assure you that you never get the money for the other house.  I've moved in all kinds of people through marriage and friendship and the sim brought over almost always just brings either §5000 or §20000 based on their lifestyle plus their inventory items.  You never get their starting funds or money from their furniture.   A good example of this proof is any dynasty thread story in the first 5 posts.   Take Pam's Dreamweaver Dynasty for a solid example.   Carina moved Chris in through marriage and all they got was about §8000.   Chris's house, the Garden Cottage, is worth at least §30,000. 

As far as I can tell the bank considers everything not owned by you, owned by the bank.   Each household is worth either §5000 or §20000 and that's all you're allowed to get if you have them move in with you.  If you move in with them and then move back into your house, then you'll get the money for the house as it's sold because you actually owned it.

Also if you move Agnes in through Marriage she only brings in $20,000 when her house is worth a lot more. It's just the funds she has in her account. To get the fully benefit she needs to have her Car on her.

I guess I was confusing marriage-move-ins with merge household and such. Which is against the rules but I still do it, heh.

Thanks, guys.

Also, isn't it weird that everyone who replied about this issue other than me is a mod or admin?

Of course not!  Even before I became a moderator, I felt this was one of the friendliest and most helpful forum staffs I've ever come across.

It helped that I sent a message to all the moderators asking for help.  And this is still one of the threads that notifies me when a new post is made, so I got it in my email as soon as you posted the question.  :D

I had a long conspiracy theory typed out as to why all of the moderators are stalking my posts, and then I saw that. Heh, I must be special.

I attempted a relaxed legacy (not playing for points) and all my founder owned was a guitar and a sleeping bag. And as I was working for a spouse I realized how much I cheated on relationships. Sims are soo slow!

Am gearing up to try my first Immortal Legacy.  I even dreamed of my founder last night.  Some of these tips are ingenious.  Many thanks. 

I think I really ought to do a legacy of, for example,  three first as 1., I hate big households and 2., I hate toddlers.  Why am I even thinking of doing a Legacy!?! :o No, it's because I love a challenge.  And it helps be procrastinate from job hunting.

Are you going to do an Immortal Dynasty or a legacy?   Like I've said in other places, I hate to nitpick but on this forum they are two separate things and there is no such thing as an immortal legacy.
