Sketchup. May be not the best - but certainly the cheapest and least complicated.
Sketchup Pro - Z390 Aorus Ultra - i9 9900K 3.60 GHz - Corsair Vengeance LPX 32 GB - Asus RTX 2080 Ti Turbo 11 GB - Samsung 970 Evo Plus 1 TB - Corsair AX850 Titanium.

I used The sims 3 for testing the rooms sizes, together with Interior and the visualization of the "humans" walking around and using the room.

Worth notice is that The sims 3 is still jusst a game, and there is limitations on how high and how big building area you can build on.. and that you cant do organic models etc. But for my project where I had 60 people sharing alot of rooms in this "social apartment house" then it was really good to see fast renderings with furnitures and humans in the social spaces, and jusst get a fast visualisation if the room should be bigger or smaller.. and how the furnitures would be placed and the humans move in the room.

This will not delete the need for the "heavyer" softwares... but the sims 3 and in the future the sims 4 may play a big role in the first devoloping stages of the architect projects.

Jusst dont get stuck playing the game instead of doing your work ;).

And... about the sims 3 and Sketchup.

If the building is quite square.. for maximum 6 ppl and not more than 3 or max 4 floors... I would use the sims 3 for the fast model (depends on how good the render musst be and if there are any strange forms in the house) .. but for a normal Familyhouse I think that The sims 3 could! absolutly be used instead of Sketchup... Even letting the "client" design theyre homes themself and then after that give them to an Experienced Architect.

Im jusst saying that dont judge out The sims 3 jusst becouse its labeled as a game. With the use of some cheats and mixing in the sims 3 in the right projects at the right time, the I have a feeling it can be stronger than any other solution out there, making the project move faster forward and with better result.

Revit for anything BIM related, and FormZ when we need total freedom plus precise & clean geometry, such as in set- or exhibition design. Currently trying to have those two talk a bit better to each other.
