For the Goth manor you have to complete the Nine Lives mystery challenge,which you need a cat for and the cat has to have hunting skills. For the other locked house, I believe you need your cat to get rid of all the ghosts in the house, which also requires your cat to have hunting skills. Good luck!

If u can't use the option, it means that there ARE ghosts. But u didn't search for it properly. So try searching around the house. if still no ghost, just get out from the house n go to the other haunted house. Hope I helped 😃

Yarr that's right build the ghost zapper on inventing table. ghost zapper is not the same as the ghost positioning system. you have to have around seven to 10 on inventing tho.
then go to waterver house you want to move into and you should see either a ghost or a sprite. Sprites are smaller than ghosts. Off you go to 414 legendrely lane and you catch 24 or 25 ghosts/sprites then you unlock the house. But if you want to unlock the girl man manor house that's locked you have to go to city hall, sign up for Mysteriologist Registraitin and go for 9 lives, when you complete that challenge you unlock that house.
I have that house and it's really epic!!

can you use a cat to catch ghosts?
Guest said: 28th Nov 2015 | REPORT
Yes you can
Guest answered: Added 19th Apr 2014, ID #622656

All you have to do is buy a inventing table and a sim has to keep inventing things on it until she/he gets the goast zapper. The goast zapper is not the same as the goast positioning system.
If you want to unlock houses you have to go to the map at night and you should see little icons
With goasts on. Go to that lot and get all the goasts or sprits. They should be hanging around that house.
The house shold be a foggy too. When you collect, I think 24 or 25 goasts from the same house you unlock it.If you want to unlock gilman manor you have to complete the challenge nine lives. To do this sign up for the mysteries challenge thing at City hall and thats it. I hope this helped ;D

I have the sims 3 on xbox 360, & the only thing I'm wondering is that how can I unlock houses. There's other houses I can choose from, but it's locked. I have been trying my hardest to use every cheat there can be. Nothings happening. What can I do to get unlocked houses?
Guest said: 1st Nov 2015 | REPORT
get a PS3
Guest answered: Added 18th Aug 2014, ID #636894

Ok for everyone who think it's 25 it's 24 secondly it spirits and ghosts put together third point is you can do it with a ism as well NOT just a cat it's easier to do it with a cat but a ism can do it to that's for legendary lane and by the way it's the Goth manor not the Gilman manor and to unlock that one you need to complete the entire mystery chapter of just nine lives to live to do any mystery register at the city hall so my points have gone across 😄😄😄😄

Finish nine lives challenge from town hall!

Catch at least 25 ghosts in a house
The house will be foggy
You can catch them by inventing a ghost zapper from the table in skills section

How do you unlock houeses that are locked in The Sims pets 3 for ps3? I would really like to know

Guest answered: Added 24th Jan 2017, ID #686919

To get the locked houses, first visit town hall and register as a misteryoligist (forgot how to spell it) and go to the mystery book. For the goth manner, you must have a cat and complete Nine Lives To Live. For the other locked house I believe you must clear out the ghosts like the goth manner. Hope this helps!
