Every so often, while chatting to the other villagers, they will ask to come over to my place (or suggest I visit them).

Aside from sticky-beaking the decor, what can I do during these visits? Is there any interaction I can perform aside from talking to the villager?

There are only two things that a villager can interact with: you, and the house.


Most of the conversational interaction is just fluff and commenting about your home. The villager will mostly wander around a little until the visit is over.

The House

During the short time frame of the visit, one of these furniture-related events may happen:

  • When a villager visits your home, speaking to the villager may eventually result in him/her making a remark about your home "missing something". This is usually followed by the villager giving you a present that he/she thinks would go well with your home.

  • When you visit a villager's home, speaking to the villager may eventually result in him/her offering furniture in his/her home for sale. However, certain items won't be sold to you, such as tables with objects on them, or furniture characteristic to the villager's personality/preferences.

During the end of a villager's visit, you also have to answer a question about how appealing the home is. Despite the fact that the villager can be offended by praise, or even be delighted by criticism, this part doesn't actually do anything meaningful.

You can purchase one of their items (with limits; no non-catalog items and they won't sell you some other stuff) each time they invite you over if you talk to them enough. Otherwise it's just for fun and unique dialog that will only occur during the visit.

You can play an instrument and they will stop and applaud you for your performance.

I don't know why this answer had a negative vote on it. It's accurate. If there is a musical instrument in the house, you can press A repeatedly to interact with it and play it, and then you get applauded. – Brian Arnold Sinclair Nov 6 '15 at 18:23

villagers come to your house to see how nice it is,sometimes they choose if they wanna stay or leave,villagers may also breed depending on the door rates,villagers also rates how good your house is to.
